Ashtanga Yoga news from Bali

Maybe you get the newsletter from the Ashtanga Yoga Bali Research Institute, headed by Prem and Radha Carlisi.

If not, heck, if so, there are a couple of news items this month worth noting. First though, here’s a link to the full newsletter.

And two main highlights:

They’ve scheduled the 2015 Ashtanga Yoga Bali Conference for April 5-10. The “presenting” teachers are Manju Jois, David Swenson, Danny Paradise, Nancy Gilgoff, Eileen Hall and Prem and Radha.

I checked, and as far as I can tell, the Ashtanga Yoga Confluence hasn’t announced a schedule yet; the first two years, if my memory serves, were around that time in April. This year it was a month later, in May, so there may be a nice spread of time between. Given that three of the teachers above have been at the Confluence, I’m assuming there will be some planning related to this. So you may be able to guess that the Confluence again will be in May. That’s total conjecture, though.

I could as easily conjecture it will be on the East Coast this time, or land in the middle around, say, Boulder, Colo.

Our coverage of the last Bali conference is at this link.

The second piece of news is for you video junkies. For a donation of $95 to their Shanti Carlisi Educational Fund, you can get access to 17 hours of video from the Bali Conference from last fall. You can do that here. A quick description of the fund:

The Shanti Carlisi Educational Fund supports deserving young women from countries such as Tibet, Bali, Sri Lanka and India, by providing funding for their study of the Ancient Vedic Arts of Living: Ashtanga Yoga, Ayurveda, and Meditation. These recipients will have the opportunity of studying with the best teachers around the globe, allowing them to become the next generation of dedicated practitioners and teachers in their countries. This experience will change their lives as well as the lives of many others.

And on an entirely separate note, click here (it’s click day, I guess) to get Tim Miller’s version of the rise of Krishna and the fall of Indra. He runs down the story of their conflict around Mt. Govardhana in his latest Tuesdays with Timji post.
