Teach Yoga to Kids!

hey y'all!

i'm helping to host a Kids Yoga Teacher Training with MiniYogis in, in NYC! its a 1-day event on sept. 5th, focusing primarily on kids ages 3-8. through the use of games, themes, music, books and other props, we will transform traditional practice into a creative, stimulating, and FUN experience for kids. you'll experience a mini yogi class for kids with real live miniyogis :) and receive your children's yoga certification through the program! it should be really fun, and uber-helpful if you want to bring yoga to young people, whether in the classroom, through a studio of phys ed environment, or even to kids in your own life....

check it!

Indra Devi with Krishnamacharya

Found this on YouTube....I love this video of Indra Devi, and how she moves up to hear what was written for her more clearly

Indra who?

*Indra Devi was known as the "first lady" of yoga. She was the first western woman ever to study in an Indian ashram (and one of the first women, period). In the 1930s she became a student of Krishnamacharya, whose other students included Iyengar and Pattabhi Jois. After a year, Krishnamacharya urged her to teach, and she did so the rest of her life, opening a yoga school in Hollywood, teaching in the Soviet Union, and settling in Argentina, writing books along the way. She lived to 102.*

pour your body out, elena bower

i took her class a couple of weeks ago, and found the way she taught anusara yoga so poetic and clear and real and deliberate. i think you can feel that here.... this yoga felt similar to writing a poem, to me...careful choice of words or joints, how things are placed and stacked and breathed, finding Space in detail.... the focus on integrity, truth.
