Introduction to Ashtanga Yoga

Hi Everyone

Judi Farrell a fab cys teacher is running a beginners introductory course to ashtanga yoga at the Chi Yoga Centre which I thought some of you might be interested in attending. Even those of you who have been coming to my ashtanga classes for a while would find it useful if you would like to deepen your practice. Double click on the link below for more details.

Next Weeks classes

Hi Everyone

As I mentioned in class to some of you already, at the last minute I have decided to do a week of mysore practice with David Keil and as such I am going to have to cancel my daytime classes next week. Sorry for the short notice, but its too good an opportunity to miss and is important for the development of my own practice and therefore my ability as a teacher. So Monday 15th, Tuesday 16th and Thursday 18th of June daytime classes at the ski club will not be on. Classes will be on the following week and these will be the last ski club classes before the school summer holidays. We will make up the cancelled session in the first block after the summer.

For those of you who wish to continue practicing throughout the Summer you are welcome to come to my Wednesday evening class in the Edmonstone Hall in Blanefield from 7.30 until 9. If you need directions please contact me.

David Keil

I am off up to Birnam this weekend to do a yoganatomy workshop with David Keil (pictured), an authorized asthanga teacher who teaches on the Chi Yoga School course. He's a great teacher and I always learn loads from his courses. He is teaching at the Chi Yoga Centre over the next few weeks, if anyone is interested in attending any of his workshops you can get details on the Chi yoga Centre website. There is a link for the Centre on my blog under 'my favourite websites'.

It's been great to the see the sunshine I'm sure you will all agree. Was way too hot for us celts on Monday and Tuesday to do any ashtanga. I hope those of you who did a Hatha yoga style class with me enjoyed it. It's good to try something new and I'm sure you will agree that holding the postures can be just as challenging as ashtanga, just in a different way.

Had a lot of new people at classes this week. Hope you enjoyed your first ever yoga session, you all did brilliantly and I hope you will give it a go for at least 6 weeks before deciding whether or not the practice is for you.

Have a lovely weekend whatever you are doing. Hope the sun keeps shining.


p.s. Someone left a blue yoga mat at class in Strathblane this evening. I will bring it with me next week.
