October has brought a slower pace than the normal velocity that I've become accustomed to here in 2010. Without the demands of hungry tourist in Skagway or the intensity of ayurvedic studies in Albuquerque I have resumed efforts in teaching here in Florida, both on topics of yoga and ayurveda. The second weekend in October was spent in Orlando teaching and meeting the beautiful practitioners at The Yoga Shala, (www.theyogashala.com) a quaint studio calmly placed in Winter Park, subtly hidden from the speed of the big city. If passing through the Orlando area for business or fun I highly suggest using any free time to practice with Krista Shirley or Sati Chmelar, both dedicated to the ashtanga tradition and both practice what they preach (a quality all teachers should have). This past weekend was spent teaching at the new Ananda Kula studio here in Jacksonville, Fl. The new owner and long time friend Tara Rawson kindly opened the doors for a delightful weekend on the great science of life, ayurveda. Meeting new friends and reuniting with old companions proved to be a warming experience and all the students expressed an authentic appreciation for the teachings of ayurveda. The next upcoming event will be held at Midnight Sun on Park St. in Riverside, Oct.29-31. Owner Maria Cox who has been a great friend for the past five years is opening her doors for me yet again, this time for ayurveda and all who wish to learn its beautiful teachings. Please contact me or Midnight Sun if interested in this seminar. But for now, be happy, be safe, and find love.
