yoga to the people

posted by streetlegalplay

There are retreats in Costa Rica and catalogs full of expensive courses at Kripalu and Omega. There are studios full of $20 courses. But what if you can’t afford these things or they’re totally off your radar?

Maybe this will explain why “by donation” center Yoga to the People is always so crowded, and how I ended up leading 180 public school girls in sun salutations this week……? Check this out:

i love yoga to the people!
pluses:
$10
1 1/2 hour class at noon on Sunday.
sweaty, old-fashioned, ashtanga-based
freakin’ GIANT glass singing bowls ringing thru one’s body for, like 3 whole minutes at the end of class.
minuses:
no inversions
very few adjustments, which makes me cringe when someone next to me is doing something so wrong and i can’t help them
really crowded — no, wait, that’s a plus–
More yoga to more people! hooray

Wisdom 2.0
If a zen master were sitting next to the chief technical officer of Twitter, what would they talk about? That sounds like a hypothetical overheared at a bar in San Francisco. But this weekend I saw the very thing at Soren Gordhamer's Wisdom 2.0 conference — named after his book of the same nam
