I had a great weekend in Tucson teaching and intensive Darren. I have sort of hit the ground running since I have gotten back. My Spring Intensive with Manorama starts tomorrow. We have two days of strong asana before she gets here and shares the weekend with us teaching sanskrit, or as I like to say, Teaching Life through the lens of language. I always LOVE studying with her and we have a lovely group assembling.
I thought it might be fun to share a few scenes with everyone from Asana Junkies Practice Club. We are well into things now at week #8 and have been steadily building on the base that we started with. This is a strong back bending day.
For those of you just now finding out about Asana Junkies, each week we work with a slightly different sequence with different emphasis and have a group webinar call where I answer questions, review the sequence and discuss whatever issues are up in terms of the group and asana practice. Then everyone goes their own way- some individually, some in practice groups where they are to work with the sequences. I also give 90 minute, 60-minute and 30-minute versions so there is no need to do everything or to practice the 2-hour sequence only. I film clips from my group practice and we keep working on our mats and also do a fair amount o f sharing progress and problems via the online forum. This has been a super fun thing for me and so rewarding to hear the reports from people about how their practice is deepening, improving and becoming more meaningful.
