Monika has made tremendous progress with her yoga practice at Mind Body Flow Yoga. An achievement made larger from the fact that she never had thought very highly of yoga a little over a year ago.
Naryan Padmanabha returned to MBFY on January 25th, for the second month in a row, to accompany our practice with his gift and talent on the beautiful sitar. This experience is always so trance-like, in that the sitar has an incredible way of taking you into a deep trance-like focus while practicing.
This month we are so happy to feature Laura Kiersz. She has grown so much in her yoga practice since she started coming to Mind Body Flow Yoga and has shown such a strong commitment to doing the work that matters. You may remember her beautiful Mermaid pose during our fall Mind Body Flow Yoga Picture Day.
This month Mind Body Flow Yoga newsletter’s featured student is Nicole Peradotto. She is going to demonstrate Running Man aka (Eka Pada Koundinyasana II). This is an arm balancing pose. The resulting shape of the posture will have Nicole low to the ground with her arms bent and her elbows over her wrists. On one side her leg will be be kicked out sideways with the thigh resting on the back of that side’s elbow. On her other side her leg will kick backwards.
When I heard about Mandela’s death, the saddest part of it for me is that my children will never understand the enormity of his life. It’s something that I personally find hard to do. He took a stand for what he knew was right against the prevailing powers of his time and circumstance and won. It is a humbling reality to consider and apply to my own life.
Here is an interview I had with Pino Rizzi who visited Mind Body Flow Yoga to lead a three day workshop we called “A Weekend with Pino Rizzi”. Pino is a certified Baptiste instructor and has attended Baptiste level 1, level 2, and level 3 training. As of this post he has as well assisted Baron Baptiste at TEN Baptiste programs all around the world.
