Namaste, Ashtangis –
In case you weren’t aware, we have a fantastic teacher coming
back to YiY. Mark Horner has been my teacher for 13 years,
and I’m always learning something new. He has a strong
background in both Iyengar and Ashtanga, as well as being one of
the senior students of Shandor Remete, founder of Shadow-style.
He’s teaching “How to Grow a Lotus” – working up to Padmasana –
on Saturday, Sept 23rd, from 2:30-5pm. Since lotus and half lotus
are such a big part of Ashtanga practice, I think you would benefit
tremendously! Not only will he be teaching different ways to open
the hips, but you’ll learn the marma points (like acupressure points)
in the feet, legs, and pelvis that directly effect hip-opening. Here’s
the link for more information:
Mark is a very detailed and skilled teacher and practitioner of
yoga. You will learn much from this workshop.
There is a discount if you register by Sept 9th – $45 instead of $50.
Please consider registering early! I will see you there.
I am also missing being in Mysore in the mornings. My daughter’s
preschool schedule has made it difficult to come! 🙁
