Looking beyond the mere physical aspect of asana practice, I am inspired once again from recent study at the Iyengar Yoga Institute in Pune, India. It is reassuring to see the teachings of BKS Iyengar being passed along so skillfully. Exploration and reflection on the internal processes of what we are doing in any given asana as a means to transform, is a theme that resonates deeply with me.
As 2017 dawns, I am excited to offer a new Iyengar Level 2/3 class at Namastday Yoga in Beverly Hills on Wednesday evenings from 6-8pm. Class begins January 11, 2017. Minimum 1 year Iyengar Yoga experience required.
In February, I will also be offering an ongoing class specifically for those with Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's or other neurological conditions; Sundays from 1-3pm at Namastday Yoga. No previous yoga experience is necessary. Class start date TBD.
My 2017 workshop dates have also been set.
SAVE THE DATES!
MARCH 4, 5 and MAY 12-16
This March and May, in conjunction with Namastday Yoga, I will offer two workshops in Los Angeles specific to people with MS and other neurological conditions.
MARCH 4 & 5
This 2-day workshop will introduce and explore how a regular practice of Iyengar yoga can help alleviate and manage many symptoms associated with MS (fatigue, spasticity, numbness, gait issues, walking, muscle weakness, neural pain, incontinence, vision challenges, depression). Though yoga is NOT A CURE FOR MS, consistent practice can increase strength, balance, stability, stamina to enhance quality of life.
This 5-day immersion course is designed to begin to establish a regular practice while taking into consideration whatever maybe going on with one's condition and how to adjust accordingly. A sustained regular practice of yoga, even while symptomatic, has been key in getting and keeping my course of MS in remission.
The 5-day course is open to all and will run Friday through Tuesday at Namastday Yoga in Beverly Hills. Participants are responsible for arranging their own travel and accommodations.
I will be in Europe in June, Brazil and the U.K. in August and again in Europe in October/ November. Check my Schedule Page for upcoming dates.
My warmest best wishes to all for a Happy and Healthy 2017 and beyond!!
