Like we said, you still can join Tim Miller for a week of counter poses to life
Hikes, an amazing mountain, a sweat lodge, stories, singing and, oh yeah, plenty of Ashtanga.
That’s the super quick version of a week in Mt. Shasta with Tim Miller. As he announces in his Tuesdays with Timji this week, there are still a few spots left for the second of two weeks that Tim spends at the Crown Chakra of California to recharge.
We already tried to sell you on it, now if you still are wavering, read on:
The two weeks in Mt. Shasta are a counter pose to the other 50 weeks of the year when there are a few too many airplanes, cars, people, asphalt and concrete, too much noise, and not enough nature. It’s a place where I can recharge my battery, have lots of fun, and feel a sense of Spiritual Renewal.
The first days’ hike is Squaw Creek, a gentle, shady trail that meanders along a lovely creek for many miles. Two miles in we find a bit of fast water with a primitive slide called “The Chute”, a short but exhilarating ride that dumps you into an icy pool. This is a counter pose to the sweat lodge. We get back to home base a few hours later with a little time to rest and freshen up before “Mat in the Middle”–an opportunity for people to ask yoga related questions. When we run out of questions we sing a couple of Bhajans and always conclude with “Story Time”, Uncle Tim reading one of his favorite stories—usually Ramayana or Mahabharata. Dinner follows at 7:30. Such is a typical day at yoga camp.
Tim offers up more of the counter poses a week in Mt. Shasta provides; we’d be there if it weren’t for Tim’s Second Series teacher training; Bobbie’s attending it down in Encinitas in late August.
There simply is nothing like being up in Shasta; you’re still in California, but won’t know it; you’ll be surrounded by wonderful people; the air is clean and the water is unrivaled.
Time for a counter pose? Here’s the info you need.
