Summer brings news of things, floods of things, yoga, poetry, a new season, who knows what else.
In case you haven’t already seen it, my latest article on elephant journal is called Why Yoga Can’t Fix Your Broken Life, and it’s true, trust me. Life breaks, but it’s going to be okay. Read it here.
And we just had our first East Side OmFest this past weekend–almost 30 aumers showed up and created a sea of aum for 45 minutes. It was seriously one of the most magical things that’s ever happened to me. I stayed for Tara’s Yin class afterwards and it was ridiculous–after savasana I starting laughing like a maniac, and then crying. Who needs drugs when you have yoga? Seriously. Look out for the next one of those real soon.
Next weekend, May 28th, we are having our first East Van Poetry Salon with RC Weslowski and the Wet Dream Catcher. RC will be debuting his one man show and I’ll be doing a few poems on the theme of shame and the body. 8pm at East Side Yoga Studio, everyone welcome to come discuss the show, the poetry, and whatever else.
On June 18th I’ll be teaching a Yin Yoga workshop at Highgate YYOGA that I am really excited about. We will approach the entire practice as a meditation with lots of silence and focus on the body. We will become still enough to listen to the stories our bodies want to tell us, and we will have an opportunity to write them down at the end of the practice. This will be a good one: it’s only $30, and you can preregister for it here.
Then on July 23rd and 24th, I’ll be teaching a 4 hour Teacher Training on the art and science of sequencing Vinyasa Yoga. I’ll be teaching several Secrets of Sequencing on the first day, rules of thumb you can use to teach creatively, safely, and on the fly. Day two will look at how to sequence your classes like you were telling a story and put all the basics from Day One into a beautiful and fun Vinyasa class.
$80 for the full workshop.

That’s a lot, isn’t it? I’ll do my best to keep you updated. For more faster more faster:
