Bid for a chance to study with Richard Freeman at his 5-Day Essentials Immersion

A few weeks back we mentioned that Richard Freeman has a five-day immersion class coming up early next year.

Wouldn’t you know it, it filled up. Surprise!

But there’s still a chance.

You can bid for a spot as part of the seventh annual Shambhala Sun Foundation auction. Details right here and the opening bid is at $300. It has a value of $500 — so that’s a deal right now.

If you need it, here’s a reminder of what the Essentials course is all about:

This 5-day intensive will help to fill in some of these gaps. In the morning sessions we will ground our study with an in depth exploration of the internal patterns of breath and alignment found in the Primary Series of the Ashtanga Vinyasa system. In the afternoons there will be an introduction to Sanskrit chanting, an introduction to the internal pleasures of pranayama and a comprehensive overview of the foundational philosophies which form the context for yoga practice. We will read and discuss the Kena and the Katha Upanishads, selections from the Yoga Sutras and then learn to appreciate the plurality of approaches to yoga through an introduction to the Bhagavad Gita.


And another reminder (we’re full of them today): Registration for next summer’s month-long training at the Yoga Workshop is Wednesday.

And because we’re talking donations, I should note that this month, Tim Miller is donating all the proceeds from his Monday night donation-only Intro to Ashtanga class at the Ashtanga Yoga Center — if you’re down San Diego way.
