On death, Krishnamacharya, injuries and Pattabhi Jois

We’re going to make it a video weekend here.

The following videos are of an Ashtanga teacher with whom I’m not particularly familiar, but for whatever reason he has blipped onto my radar a few times in the past couple of weeks.

Seems like these videos have ads. Sorry. They aren’t ours. (Although I suppose we have ads, too, as a result of not paying too much to wordpress. Maybe we should think about “monetizing” the blog. So very yogic, right?)

And:

Finally:

Maybe I should have spread those out over a week — get a little respite. For more on Horton, travel over here. From that:

Clayton has studied with both masters Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and the Greensufi for a period of over 14 years. His practice and teachings are rooted in the Ashtanga Vinyassa Tradition and daily meditation. He is a member of the Yoga Society of San Francisco Brahmananda Ashram and a Founding Board Member of the Green Yoga Association.

His teaching style is traditional yet light hearted and relaxed. Clayton believes that by practicing and living yoga, we can transform ourselves and the world around us.

According to Clayton, “Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is a complete and well-balanced system in which an experienced and skilled teacher can help any student ‘find their place’ within its structure regardless of individual challenges, aptitude and constitution.”

His bio says he is Authorized Level 2, and lists his current locale as the Phillipines. So I hope all is OK with him given the typhoon. If anyone has had interactions with him, feel free to provide some thoughts in the comments.
