Fiesta de Gracias : Denise Kaufman & Dave Stringer / Lisa Walford Iyengar

Posted Sep 11 2008 11:44am

Kaufman20stringer20flyer20nov2007_3Denise Kaufman & Dave Stringer are hosting " Fiesta de Gracias " , a 4 day Thanksgiving retreat @ the Haramara Retreat in Mexico.

Expect to enjoy days full of surfing , yoga and chanting in Haramara, 40 miles north of Puerto Vallarta.

I've met both Denise & Dave ; their energy , insights and SADHANA will definitely rock your world.

* Aloha and anandaste , thanks for the great email Denise -

And this morning was another special day as my MENTOR invited me to practice @ Lisa Walford's Iyengar class .

Lisa is an amazing resource , and as I commented to my teacher after the class , Iyengar appeals to folks like myself who have a streak of OCD. As a senior Iyengar instructor, she knows of what she teaches . I thought she had calibration calipers on her eyeballs as she could detect everyone's alignment in the crowded studio. Am now inspired to use a strap in order to take Pincha Mayurasana, Bakasana, Urdhva Danurasana and company to the next level.

Having read BKSIyengar's Light on Yoga several times, it was definitely an enhancement to learn from a teacher who has studied with him for a while. Being a bit of a "classicist" in practice now, I appreciate the fact that she leads the class through the Sanskrit invocations and talks about the asanas and the body as shrines ( the architecture of the asana ) that are akin to visits on a pilgrimage. Awesome analogy.
