Happy New Yoga Year everyone! I hope everyone’s been enjoying the gorgeous weather this good year has blown in. Such pretty days. I was fortunate enough to visit Gisborne in the week before NY to do a few classes with Peter Sanson. Hot, sweaty, honest work. Good people, toiling and churning through their practice and Peter in fine form encouraging us through the heat. I’d not been to Gisborne before and I was pleasantly surprised. Loved the beaches and the way-out-east feel of the place. Fine on its own thank you very much. Even the plethora of dazed and confused 17 year old Rhythm n Vine crew didn’t dampen the experience (Ok, a bit. I’m getting old).
In the past week there have been a crew of us practicing at the studio every day at 7am. This is a self-practice Ashtanga session, that will run most days throughout January. Please check in by texting me on 021 1207 131 if you would like to come. The 6am classes will not start again till February. So if you are used to practicing before work, come along, even if just for an hour. The session cost is $2 each.
At the moment I’m quite busy with some catering work, running the kitchen at a meditation retreat out between Hamilton and Raglan at Waitetuna Retreat. More good people, toil and churning through, this time, TONS of food – berries galore, boxes and boxes of greens and miles and miles of beans. It’s work I love though despite the hours! The food brief of nutritionally sound, plant based, satvic food is a culinary challenge that I enjoy.
So in light of that Peter and I have decided that the timetable will look something like the following. As you read the timetable note that if a class is mentioned, then assume the class is then up and running from there. There’ll be special post of the new kids class Mondays 4pm coming soon. So, slowly all the classes finally fall into place…
Much love to you all.
