SUNDAY YOGA BLOG TIMES: THANK YOU RICHARD FREEMAN!

What to do if you disagree with your teacher? Here is Richard Freeman answering that question.

I start people with subtleties of the breath with many other teachers would wait 20 years to teach, I kind of work backwards and I hope is helpful, says Richard Freeman in this video posted by Ashtanga Yoga New York.

Thanks to Grimmly for the transcript of highlights of Freeman’s Workshop during the Confluence called: Back-Bending on the Current of the Breath. It works! Grimmly says! 

It all comes in four videos, all from Studioactive8 (thank you!). Here is the second, third and fourth.  A delight to listen to and watch (sort of as the camera moves quite a bit, but who can blame the person recording the video? it is a class after all! What a blessing to have this resource)

Richard Freeman is in my opinion one of the best yoga teachers the world has to offer these days, he has put out some incredible materials like: Mirror of Yoga, or its sister CD Yoga Matrix” which has the same contents except you listen to him and to the chants (priceless!)  He also offers studio talks which you can download from his page, like this one on the practice of Ashtanga Yoga.

The more I practice the more I realize the simplicity of it, this is about the breath, says Nancy Gilgoff in this post by Rose (she links to many more she wrote on the Confluence)

Can my fingers please touch my toes?! Oh, how I can relate…
Check out all the amazing giant eggs she sees as she makes her way to yoga in London.
And on another note:

Would you let your airline pull your info from Facebook/Linked in so they can sit you next to someone suited for conversation? KLM is trying it.  What do you think?

    Yes Richard Freeman, can't get to Boulder for a month so I'm having my own RF month intensive here instead, practicing along with his Primary and 2nd ( had these for years but only really ready for them now personally it seems), just got Mirror of Yoga for my iPad and fished out the old Yoga Matrix cd's. Still prefer how Ramaswami taught pranayama but getting a lot out of RF's

    Hm, did not get that bit, I have read very little about Nancy so I am not very familiar yet with how she teaches, but I guess it is interesting they have such different styles, and yes, we can all benefit<br /><br />I took a workshop in NYC with Richard a few years ago and loved it..<br /><br />As per the airplane thing… just had this image of Nietzche sipping wine… I think the world is
