I just came off of a weekend of discussion about the Yoga Sutras and learning the finer points of the classical execution of asanas (which is quite different from the way asana is practiced today). My brain is full but happy. Perhaps it's my love of being a perpetual student but I am juiced by learning new things and learning new things about what I think I already know.
I especially love the latter. So often I have my cocky, "I already know that attitude" about certain things. It's wonderful when we can drop what we think we know and be opening to listening anew. It's like my training this past weekend -- I'm learning about yoga in a whole new way than I've learned about it before. The new ideas have made me rethink what I think I know about yoga. And it makes me realize that I know nothing. Not to go all Zen koan on you here, but I realize I know nothing and everthing at the same time. Needless to say, it's a humbling experience.
Recently, one of more favorite sources for distance yoga learning -- Yoga Spirit -- closed its doors. I was so surprised to learn of its demise. Because I love to learn I assume that everyone else likes to learn as well. I guess not. The unfortunate truth is that learning can be expensive -- classes, workshops, conferences -- they all add up. That's why I love that Yoga Journal offers many of their panel discussions and keynote speeches for free online. In fact, they just released the recordings from last month's conference in San Francisco. If you're ready to open your mind and expand what you think you know, check out the downloads from this and past Yoga Journal conferences.
Its a nice Conference. I usually like to attend Conferences. I had Previously attended a Computing Conference. Its a Cloud Computing Virtual Conference 2009,Which is the global cloud computing event, covering latest trends and innovations in the world of cloud computing. Nice Experience with them.
