Warmest wishes to each of you for good health, happiness, prosperity and peace in 2013!!
With the new year upon us, our thoughts are often steeped in reflection and resolution. Reflection on where we’ve been, where we are, and our hopes for the potential of what the new year holds.
As we reflect, we often set goals — physical, emotional, spiritual — to further enrich our life. Many resolve to take action. Perhaps one of those goals is starting or deepening a yoga practice?
In January I am offering an Introductory Course for those interested in exploring a yoga practice and an Intermediate Course for those who already have a practice and who are looking to further refine their journey with yoga.
The 6 week Intro Course will meet once a week on Sunday afternoons at the Iyengar Yoga Institute of Los Angeles, starting January 6. This is a slower-paced course geared to those who may need to “ease in” to the world of yoga for whatever reasons — those may be a bit intimidated at the prospect of starting a practice, be facing a physical challenge, or otherwise for the curious or returning student who may want to take things a bit slower. All are welcome. For info and details visit Introductory Course.
For those of you seeking to deepen your practice, the twelve week Intermediate Course starts Wednesday, January 16. The classes are cumulative and geared to experienced students (Level 2 and upward). We will explore some of the more challenging physical asanas which provide a deeper penetration on the path of self exploration and reflection. Due to the nature of life in LA, drop ins are okay for those of us with sporadic commitment conflicts. For info and details on the Intermediate course visit Intermediate Course.
Of course, I welcome newly initiated students to any of my Level 1-2 classes at Yogaworks in Westwood and Tarzana (www.yogaworks.com). My constant “old guard” restorative classes continue at the Iyengar Yoga Institute of Los Angeles (www.iyila.org).
Private instruction in Los Angeles is always an option.
Looking ahead to the spring and summer, I am planning to return to Australia and Northern Europe to offer workshops specifically geared to persons with MS. Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org for further info.
I look forward to seeing you in the new year…somewhere, sometime soon.
