Some Ashtanga news via David Swenson and Nancy Gilgoff

Two quick pieces of news about two of the Confluence teachers, although one — Nancy Gilgoff — isn’t going to be featured next year. The other, David Swenson, will.

But I’ll start with Nancy, who sent out an updated schedule through April 2014 today. The long and short of it: She’ll be teaching on Maui from Nov. 12 until the end of April 2014. Included in that time is an intermediate teachers training with Manju from Nov. 25-29 and Mysore-style classes with him on Dec. 1 and from Dec. 3-6.

In 2014, she is doing a primary adjustment clinic from Jan. 25-29. After April, according to the email “is still being sorted out…..”

Nancy also highlights two February 2014 Costa Rica retreats with two of her long-time students, Christine Hoar and Kimberly Dahlmann. For more, go here.

And Nancy sent along the Namarupa effort to raise money for a flood-ravaged village in northern India. If you have’t donated… you still can.

David’s news is even shorter: He’s got practice cards and posters back in stock. Bobbie was just saying how his book helped her in her early Ashtanga days….

Manju heading to Gilgoff’s Maui studio

It’s a little hard to get a lot of fresh information on Nancy Gilgoff.

Manju, via Nancy's site

I suspect that’s not not on purpose. Her Internet site seems a fair reflection of her physical one, as it’s been described to me.

But here’s some news: Manju Jois will be a guest teacher at the House of Yoga and Zen next month.

Here’s a link.

He’ll be there from Nov. 14 to 19 doing a “Primary Teachers’s Training.” That would be an interesting experience, no doubt.

I can’t help but wonder if Manju will be around San Diego in March and make any appearance at the Confluence.  I do know that following the Confluence, Nancy will be doing some teaching up here in Los Angeles. Bobbie and I are checking to see how our calendars look.

Well, and I’m trying to figure out how much intense Ashtanga I can take in one month or less.
