Ashtanga Yoga Confluence and Bali Conference — now’s your chance

We noted yesterday that the pre-registration for the 2014 Ashtanga Yoga Confluence opened. You can register at this link. Reminder: It costs a little less but includes staying at the hotel (which is nice and convenient and allows you to be surrounded by other Confluence attendees but also means you are paying for the room).

The schedule is here. A little reminder:

Sunday: May 11, 2014

7:00 -9:00 am – Guided First Series taught by Manju (asana)

7:00-8:30 am – Mysore taught by Richard, Dena, Tim and David with certified and authorized teacher assistance (asana)

8:30-10:00 am – Mysore taught by Richard, Dena, Tim and David with certified and authorized teacher assistance (asana)

11:30 am-1:30 pm – Ashtanga Yoga As It Is with Manju (vedic chanting/pranayama)
Manju began learning Vedic Chanting and Sanskrit at the age of seven from his father K. Pattabhi Jois. After several years of instruction Manju began to practice Vedic Chanting on his own. These simple Vedic mantras create a vibration that result in a feeling of well-being.  Manju enjoys sharing his favorite chants with anyone who is interested in chanting to help with memory, mental peace and relaxation.

4:00-6:00 pm – Panel Discussion: Q & A with Richard, Manju, Dena, Tim and David. Moderated by Dominic Corigliano. (lecture/discussion/Q&A)
This class offers an opportunity for students to ask questions of the teachers. Questions submitted in advance
will be addressed.

The Confluence isn’t the only big gathering on the horizon. I just saw that there are still a couple dozen spots available in the Ashtanga Yoga Conference happening next month in Bali. Link right here, and a reminder (although we did highlight it earlier):
