I just received an email about this, is anyone interested? Thought I would pass this on....
"Swathi Iyengar, from Southern India, a yoga master from the Iyengar family/clan, is coming to do a 2-day workshop very cheap here in Chengdu close to Tong Zi Lin on January 5th and 6th - 800RMB (usually $500 for a 2-day workshop with him in Hong Kong) for 2 days and he'll do two 2-hour workshops over the 2 days. He'll talk about Yoga poses/kriyas, meditation, pranayama, the philosophy of yoga, diet etc. And (of course) we'll do yoga as well - this is not an advanced level program or anything like that - for all levels! "
Please let me know, namaste.
Brittney thats great, I'm going away next Friday and will return on Wednesday. The following weekend I am hoping to go to Khandang( I met a monk who recommended a monastery where I can meditate to bring out the New Year)but that is still tentative. Lets definitely get in touch, what times are the classes on the weekends?
Finally! I have been here since the end of August and haven't been able to find anyone interested in Yoga (all aspects) I spent a year last year in India practising yoga and involved in the yoga community. I really miss it and being around like minded people. I don't live in Chengdu but in Xindu which is an hour bus ride from North Railway Stn. I am there mostly in Chengdu every weekend. So I can't really join a gym and go to daily classes. I would love to get together with people like you, whether to join a class on the weekend or just to have a meal or tea.
Also I was looking for a meditation retreat for the holidays, somewhere close to Chengdu. Does anyone know of a place? Last year for New Years I climbed the mountain of Tiruvannamalai and watched the sunrise after a three hour meditative walk. I would love to have that experience again to start off the New Year. Hope to hear from you, sending smiles and namaste!
