Holiday News and Specials

Dear Yogis and Yoginis,

As 2010 draws to a close, try to take a moment to reflect on this year. How have you changed?

What were the most significant changes and milestones in your life?

How are your closest relationships have enhanced your life? How has your yoga practice changed throughout the year?

It is so important to take the time to slow down and to really appreciate all the abundance around us during the holiday season. We can get so busy crossing items off our to-do list, that we can miss out on the important moments that make this time of the year so special.

Wishing you and your family the best December ever filled with love!

Ursula and the IPY teachers

Hips Workshop With Internationally Known Master Teacher Doug Keller

December 19, 2010, 1:00p – 3:30p

Doug KellerThe opening of the hips is essential to any yoga practice, and good range of motion in the hips is essential to the health of your knees and low back. This asana practice will lead you through simple actions to practice in your poses that will help you find greater opening and stability in your hips, as well as protecting and strengthening your knees and low back.

Doug’s background reflects a lifelong commitment to studying, and sharing the vast field of knowledge and practice known as yoga.

After receiving honors and graduate degrees in philosophy from top Jesuit universities in the United States – Georgetown and Fordham Universities – and teaching philosophy at a college level for several years, he then pursued his post-graduate education in the practical experience of yoga at the Siddha Meditation Ashram, Gurudev Siddha Peeth in India. There he spent seven years, and a total of 14 years doing service, practicing, training in and teaching yoga in Siddha Meditation Ashrams worldwide.

Doug received intensive training in the Iyengar system in New York City, practiced Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga in India, and became one of the first certified Anusara Yoga teachers, producing four highly respected books on asana, therapeutics, pranayama and yoga philosophy.
