Ashtanga yoga news and perspective from two practitioners seeking to deepen their Sadhana
David Swenson just nailed the best thing about the Confluence in his new websitecpost:
“There will be differences and similarities between how we present the system we all so love,” he writes. “This will be the beauty of the event. It is a flowing together.”
Apropos of Steve’s last entry, that will be the best part for me: Seeing these great teachers converse with each other, listening to them compare notes, finding the common ground. And there will also be a “confluence” of students–Richard’s students will be practicing next to David’s next to Eddie’s next to Nancy’s next to Tim’s. Some of us have spent a great deal of time with one teacher; some have dabbled in workshops with the others. We’ll get to see the greatness of the teaching.
During his teacher trainings, Tim was often asked about this or that detail from David’s book, or something Nancy or Richard might have said. Tim always treats these differences with respect and humor, never really disagreeing with the teachings of his “esteemed colleagues,” as he called them. Check out David’s post. You can hear the love and respect.
