I get the loveliest feedback to my Friday emails. Thank you very, very much.
I have a question... Did you know that many of my group classes are based in some way on the Ashtanga ‘Primary Series’? There’s a second and an unreachable third... all the way up to totally impossible, don’t-even-think-about-it sixth. Last week I taught Second Series from the chart of prescribed postures in many group classes and it seems to be going down well; just the change some people needed. Take a look at the chart and I’m sure you’ll recognise a few of the postures.
In yesterday’s class we all tied ourselves up in knots with yoga belts. I attach a picture I found on Google but I must ask your permission to take a photo next time. You don’t need the blocks. There are plenty of places left in my Home Studio classes next week. Book a place!
Yoga in the News
The Guardian tells us that: ‘Yoga joins Unesco world heritage list’. India’s soft diplomacy with yoga as its main weapon continues. If the article last week about manning the barricades gave you pause for thought, here is the answer. The Indian Foreign Ministry said this would help India to: ‘which would enable it to 'potentially foment a dialogue of ideas of peace and tolerance with other countries' and play a leading role in the global dialogue of inter-cultural relations’.
Favourite Vegan Jokes
If you didn’t know, I’m the total cliché of a vegan yoga teacher. I’m attaching my favourite vegan joke of the moment.
