Yoga Journal Conference NYC

Posted Mar 24 2011 3:33pm

I’m sitting here trying to find out where I’m going to get $231 to attend this event. I am interested in doing a Yoga workout with (the legendary) Shiva Rea is going to be teaching the class I want to attend. I have a couple of her DVDs and I like doing them a lot.

Course DescriptionMandala Namaskar: Circular Movement in Yoga, Instructor: Shiva Rea
In this increasingly gridlike world, experience the healing power of a mandala (sacred circle) within a namaskar, or moving meditation vinyasa. We’ll learn four salutation sequences that unfold in an integrated flow. **This class has been approved by American Council on Exercise (ACE) for 0.2 CECs.**

At first, I didn’t like the “look” of Yoga at all because it was too slow for me, would be a waste of my calorie burning loving time and I used to have this rush rush mentalility when it came to fitness, but I am so over that now. Sometimes one needs to just slow down for a while and take in the scenery, air or whatever else he or she wants to take in. I am in no way saying that everyone should do Yoga or I am this Yoga buff because I am not, but I do enjoy performing Yoga on a weekly basis. Yoga helps me with increasing my balance, breathing and flexibility skills and that’s the main reason why I even do Yoga, Pilates, Balance and Stretching routines. I really should be doing a little bit every morning which I probably will start. Gaiam’s AM Yoga with Rodney Yee would be a great place to start and guess what…I have that workout too, of course.

Anyway, the price of this Sunday morning event is a bit steep for $200, but I bet it’s worth it just to work out with the great one in person. With the $50 dollar discount code and the $25 Yoga Journal Conference organic t-shirt (I gotta have the SHIIIIIIIIIIIRT) the price is up there! The event takes place on Sunday, May 15, 2011 from 8am to 10am. I need to read more into the website to see what else is offered if anything…

Michael Pollen, author of In Defense of Food (great book - everyone should read this book), is going to be at the conference the Friday night before the Sunday I want to go.  It would be nice to attend his event, but I have a little one at home and she needs me in the evenings.

Let’s see if the husband is going to feel what I’m talking about when I bring it up. Early bird specials on the price is up so that means they will be hiking up the price as the date approaches.
