Tomorrow, July 16, is a moon day. There will not be practice, take rest.
Anthony “Grimm” Hall has been running a website about ashtanga for many years now, and it’s full of valuable resources:
I will be leading a pranayama session this Sunday July 14 9:30-10:00 in the blue room before our monthly Sutra discussion.
This is a podcast conversation between J. Brown and Chase Bossart. The first 20 minutes or so are banter but if you can get through that it’s an interesting take on the meaning of yoga:
We’ll be meeting at 10:00 on Sunday July 14 in the “blue room” at 1954 Old Middlefield, CA 94043 until 11:30. Bring your translations as usual.
We plan to discuss sutra 2.47 about the third limb of Ashtanga, asana:
Prayatna saithilya ananta samapattibhyam
Please note that Philippe’s Intro to the Sutras workshop audio is up and you can listen to it if you have not attended our group before.
Happy 4th of July everyone! Mysore class will start later tomorrow, 7-9:30am.
Please note, as well, that starting next week we will have another class starting at 9:30am Tuesdays and Thursday in the main room. So the floor needs to be cleared and everyone finished by 9:10am, sharp. You are welcome to finish in the small room.
Thank you for your understanding and help!
Take rest please with the occasion of the new moon.
If you’re interested in Structural Integration / ’Rolfing’ sessions, Mitchell is offering sessions beginning this week.
If you would like to work on structural alignment, whole body integrity, or the resolution of physical strain, please discuss this work with him.
The process involves deep, slow work with fascial (‘connective tissue’) layering, and can be received as an individual session – e.g. to relieve shoulder stress – or as a more holistic series.
As a teacher of Ashtanga, Mitchell has an approach that is supportive and sympathetic to the needs of yoga practitioners.
