David Robson Yoga

After circling Lake Ontario now a second time, our pilot announced his apologies but as the plane taking off on our airstrip was having trouble due to the snow, we had to wait:

“Sorry folks.  As you can see, it’s cold and lousy outside. Welcome to Toronto.”

So true, Toronto may be cold (actually, it’s ass-biting cold) but I’ll tell you where it’s anything but and that’s at the Ashtanga Yoga Centre of Toronto where I’ve begun a one-week immersion into the Primary Series with David Robson. Actually four of us made the trip up from DC, including my daughter who will be photographing parts of it.

Admittedly, our 8 hour days of training will leave little time for me to write much – but as promised, I will keep a daily diary here, adding to this same post each day.  I’ll share with you my notes and spice it up with some iPhone video, audio and at the end, some images from Meghan.

Ok. Here we go:

There's no denying that there's an economy of energy for each person and there are limits to how much can go out. Of course, I want to do more and more all the time, and there's some people that are amazing that way-- they can do so much.

But I'm not one of those people.

I think part of getting older is trying to figure out which things that you do want to spend more time on and which things that you don't. I'm glad it seems like I'm doing a lot and doing it okay. But everything I do could always benefit from more attention.

The practices is fundamentally an ongoing meditation on how you dispense energy, on how you share energy in your life.

Watch (and hear) David Robson demonstrate the intermediate series of Ashtanga Yoga with a special commentary. A ten part series filmed at Purple Valley in Goa. His practice is graceful and almost zen like. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QIYGbh2FqTY&index=1&list=PLpfKu0U8zxt6JlDoVdyc3MUwUIavSgHtI
