If you are within traveling distance of New York City, I’d strongly urge you to check out the full schedule for Eddie Stern and Robert Moses’ weekend retreat at Ashtanga Yoga New York, happening the weekend of Martin Luther King Day. It looks to be fabulous. From the AYNY website:

And a little more:
Please join us for annual MLK Weekend retreat at Ashtanga Yoga New York. This is one of the most important times of the year for us, as it is the only retreat that we run, and is a time for creating a stronger community, deepening our knowledge, and contemplating the realities of the world as a spiritual journey.
This year Robert Moses will lead discussions on Vedanta, Eddie Stern will lead the Mysore classes along with all of the AYNY assistants, and Pastor Tillman will be with us again to speak on the Fulfillment of Martin Luther King’s Dream in light of the recent tragedies in Ferguson and Staten Island. Erica Ford, of LIFE Camp, and the Urban Yogis, will also join into lead a discussion on Sunday about the work they do in Queens to reduce violence through mediation, yoga and meditation.
I can attest that Pastor Tillman was dynamic during last year’s retreat. Unfortunately, he has plenty to discuss this year.
A few important facts. In other words, cost: Full weekend is $190, a single day is $105 and half a day is $55.
For any number of reasons, Bobbie and I couldn’t make the cross-country trek to attend this time. If you can make it — you should. Email to register is at the AYNY site.
