I've had an "energy" post on hold all week, with no time to write it. I could reproduce it here, but I think that tomorrow or Tuesday (because as with all weekends I have some delirious hip tightness that'll work out energetically over the next two practice days) it'll be more alive and more interesting. Right now it'd read like photocopy.
So that's coming. Soon. Really.
There are workshops in the midwest of interest (you might think, well duh, that's always true, for every region), but the midwest does not see a lot of ashtanga senior teachers, aside from Chicago, and even then, it's Kino twice a year at Moksha if we're lucky, and then Richard Freeman's been making a tour through annually for the last two years at least, and Kino and/or Tim also like to hit the Yoga House up in Minneapolis annually, and Tim Miller of course does his Columbus Ohio thing in April.
I can find (and am interested in) these:
Mar 1-4: Ashtanga Yoga Confluence, San Diego. The first year of what Tim and company say will be an annual thing. Mysore or Primary, with workshops and with discussion and even a MC Yogi dance thing. Will it be fabulous, will it be overloaded, will it be something else? I think one has to find out.
Mar 9-11: Kino MacGregor comes to our humble Indianapolis. No schedule yet, so we don't know if she's Mysoring here, but that would rock. We have NEVER had an authorized or certified teacher do Mysore in Indy. EVER.
Apr 13-18: Tim Miller in Columbus Ohio, over at Yoga on High: his regular Primary and breathwork and adjustments weekend, BUT with a new three-day MWF program: 8 hours a day, each, sequentially, on Yoga Chikitsa, Nadi Shodana, and Sthira Bhaga. Can you call me CURIOUS? Yes you can. But I probably can't go, with scheduling and classes and so on.
May 4-7: Tim Feldmann in Edina MN (Yoga House) doing Mysore-style and then a four-day workshop dedicated ENTIRELY to Nadi Shodana. HAWT! This is directly after my 42nd birthday, and I might request that it be a present.
I don't know if there's an Austin TX program with David and Shelley yet or not, but I'm interested in doing that again if it's possible. Of course, the household will probably frown on doing more than two of these, but sometimes, the household must frown. J was at a conference for Kino's first appearance at Moksha, so I didn't go, and she'll be in France (for NINE DAYS) during Kino's second appearance at Moksha, so I can't go. I think the single-parent childcare can be balanced out.... :)
