Kite flying at Durango Hills park on Independence day 2018
Cooler nights have arrived and the summer is on its way out. The grape and fig harvests have come and gone--now it's time for peaches and pears, yellow squash, eggplant and okra. Jeremy and I have been picking huge handfuls of green beans and sharing cucumbers and zucchini with all the neighbors. The gifts of an established garden are glorious--much like anything lovingly tended to for a number of years.
I've received numerous inquiries about when I will be resuming public yoga instruction. Earlier this year, I decided to set my sights high and sought out a teaching position that would allow me to share yoga in a systematic and rigorous fashion. A great honor has been bestowed upon me: I was invited to join the teaching faculty at University of Nevada Las Vegas. We're three weeks into the fall semester, and 90 new yoga practitioners might be spotted around the city, practicing sun salutations in parks and rec centers, gyms and backyards. I'm teaching three sections of PEX 169, a single-credit elective class in the Physical Education department. My joy knows no bounds.
Jeremy and myself are both available for private lessons in our lovely yoga room at the rate of $50/hour. Individualized instruction is useful for beginner students as well as regular practitioners with established practices. Yoga professionals in search of mentoring or Yoga Alliance CEC's will also find that individualized instruction is of great value. We recommend that students attend four private sessions (1-2 hours each) during the course of a month, and then dedicate 2-3 months to self-practice and implementation of our suggestions. It is our observation that too much instruction is counterproductive to a student's progress. Input from a teacher is only useful if the student then implements the teachings as part of a home yoga practice. Reply to this email or call us at (808)388-9553 if you'd like to know more.
