screen-shot-2017-03-01-at-22-39-46
3 years…yes it has been 3 years going onto 4 since i first attended Meghan’s workshop in London…i had been a fan for years before that…but had never actually had a chance to meet the lady…and i did. and i fell in love again. i introduced myself and mentioned to meghan that she should come to milan. and then i set out to do just that. to bring meghan to milan. it look a few years. but as they say, all good things come to those who wait, and boy did i wait. 3 years, going onto 4. did i already mention this? 😉
Anyhoo i digress, Meghan is coming…yes you read it, meghan is actually finally coming over! so u know, all that stuff they say about perseverance and if at first you dont succeed, try and try again – dude, it’s all true.

Soooooo…here is what she’s gonna be delighting us with!

MOVE FROM LOVE – Weekend Workshop with Meghan Currie
 All of life is a constant spontaneous process – moments weaving new moments. We are co-creators in this never-ending work of art, endowed with the gift of consciousness and granted the ability to see the direction and quality of our energy investments. Every time we invest our energy, we create a ripple, a rumble, a shift of some kind that affects the whole collective reality. And we have the gift to choose to create fluctuations of love or fluctuations of fear. We need only to get curious enough to learn how to use this magical gift.
This weekend intensive is a playful journey into the depths of the self. We will cultivate clarity and insight, and ultimately, a greater understanding of what it means to Move from Love and how to stay awake to Love Consciousness in daily life. 
 
Love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses. 
-Ann Landers 
 Each workshop in the series will build upon the previous one. And all will be an infusion of restorative healing, slow motion alignment, breath focused vinyasa, stamina building exercises and informative pauses to break down the intricate patterns of movement and complex postures. All this is interwoven with intentional dialogue and silent space for the individual to dive deeper through their layers.
*As each one builds upon the last, it is strongly recommended to sign up for all workshops. As a result of utilizing the entire package, you will see more expansive growth in your practice and a deeper integration of the practice into your life. Please bring a towel and a journal.
 Friday June 16th 2017 from 6.00 pm to 8.30 pm – 50 euro
The Unlearning Curve 
A practice of any kind repeated for a prolonged period has the capacity to build patterns that do not necessarily serve our body-minds, or our highest growth potentials. In this workshop, we will inspect this common phenomenon, and how it affects other aspects of our lives as well. We will learn to unlearn the patterns that no longer serve and replace them with those that do! 
 
The more I see the less I know for sure. 
-John Lennon 
 
Saturday June 17th 2017 from 10.00 am to 1.00 pm – 60 euro
Love in Every Direction 
Naturally we tend to accept certain aspects of our practice/body/circumstances, while rejecting others. But, avoidance of any facet of life’s expression creates within us a dormancy, a void, which can manifest as fear or judgement in our lives and in our relationships. What would happen if we could love and respect every aspect of ourselves and of life’s dynamic unfolding? How could this change our entire life’s experience? 
In this practice, we will curiously inspect what this means, and how we can implement the practice of love toward every detail of this human experience. 
Saturday June 17th 2017 from 3.00 pm to 5.30 pm – 50 euro
Surrender and Actualize
clear vision; aligning with your highest desires 
Sometimes it seems as though life accelerates with each passing year. This is partly due to the sheer amount of information we accumulate and store within our body-mind. One of the best ways to clean out these internal storage lockers is through deep surrender. Once we allow the old information to fall away, we create space around what we truly want in our lives, and regain the power and energy to realize these intentions. 
This class will be a blend of discussion, deep yin-full surrender, meditation and journaling exercises to help you cultivate clarity and allow you to begin to actualize your dreams and desires.
Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes. 
-Carl Jung 
Sunday June 18th 2017 from 10.00 am to 1.00 pm – 60 euro
 Move from Love Master Class
it’s a Process, not a Perfect 
To move from love is to hold space for self exploration, growth in every direction and learning through play. 
This practice is a celebration life, a mashup of all that was explored over the weekend and an opportunity to integrate it into a piece of fluid movement. You will learn about flowing through every situation, holding yourself in a space of love and acceptance and listening to the symphony of life as it spontaneously unfolds.

Article by Nancy Gilgoff

ASHTANGA YOGA AS IT WAS (THE LONG AND SHORT OF IT)

The following is the way in which Guruji taught me, Nancy Gilgoff, the Primary and Intermediate series of Ashtanga Yoga during my first trip to Mysore, in 1973.  David Williams and I stayed for four months that trip and had two classes per day (excluding Saturdays and Moon days).

In the first class, I was taught to do five Surya Namaskara A, plus the three finishing postures – Yoga Mudrasana, Padmasana, and Tolasana.  The second class, later that day, was five Surya Namaskara A and five Surya Namaskara B, plus the three finishing.  In the next class, Guruji told me to only do three each of Surya Namaskara A and B, and to keep it that way in my practice, and he then began adding on at least two postures per class, always with the three finishing at the end.

Guruji taught me the standing postures through Parsvottanasana, but with no Parivritta Trikonasana or Parivritta Parsvakonasana.  After Parsvottanasana he had me jump through to Dandasana.

In the seated postures, there were a minimal amount of vinyasas.  There were no vinyasas between sides.  Moreover, there were no vinyasas between variations – so all of Janu Sirsasana A, B, and C were done together (right side, left side of A, right, left of B, right, left of C), then a vinyasa before Marichyasana.  Then all of the Marichyasana variations, A, B, C, and D, were done together, without vinyasas between sides or variations; then there was a vinyasa before doing three repetitions of Navasana.  Baddha Konasana, Upavishta Konasana, and Supta Konasana were also grouped together without vinyasas between them.  Ubhaya Padangusthasana and Urdhva Mukha Paschimottanasana were also done together, with no vinyasa between – I was taught to simply change the hand position after Ubhaya Padangusthasana and go right into Urdhva Mukha Paschimottanasana.
In Kurmasana, Guruji had us bring our arms straight out from the shoulders (so the arms were in a straight line), with the knees close to the shoulders.  There was no vinyasa to move into Supta Kurmasana; we would pull the feet back first, rounding the back, then clasp the hands together behind the back, and then cross the feet at the ankles in front of the head, with the head tucked in.
After Setu Bandhasana, Guruji added in Utthita Hasta Padangusthasana and Ardha Baddha Padmottanasana – but to be put in the series back in the standing sequence, after Parsvottanasana.  (Utkatasana and Virabhadrasana were not in the series at this point, nor were Parivritta Trikonasana or Parivritta Parsvakonasana, all of which were added in later.)
Once Utthita Hasta Padangusthasana and Ardha Baddha Padmottanasana were taught and added into their place in the standing sequence, Intermediate was taught immediately – added on at the end of Primary, with Pashasana following Setu Bandhasana.  In fact, I had no idea that there were two separate series until the end of that first four-month trip, when we were leaving, at which point Guruji gave us a sheet of paper with a list of the postures, which were listed as Primary, Intermediate, Advanced A, and Advanced B.  At this point he told us to practice one series a day, and only once a day.  While we had been with him in Mysore, we had learned both Primary and Intermediate series in the first two months, and after that, he had had us practice both series, together, in entirety, twice a day.
Intermediate Series also contained fewer vinyasas back then.  There were no vinyasas between sides (in Pashasana, Krounchasana, Bharadvajasana, Ardha Matsyendrasana, Eka Pada Sirsasana, Parighasana, and Gomukhasana).  From Shalabhasana through Parsva Dhanurasana, the asanas were done in a group, with a vinyasa only at the end.  Ushtrasana through Kapotasana also were done all together, with a vinyasa only after Kapotasana.  The same went for Eka Pada Sirsasana through Yoganidrasana – there were no vinyasas until the Chakrasana after Yoganidrasana.
The Intermediate series, as Guruji taught it to us during that first trip, included Vrishchikasana after Karandavasana.  We were taught to hold Pincha Mayurasana for five breaths, bring the legs into lotus and lower down into Karandavasana, hold five breaths, inhale up, and then exhale right into Vrishchikasana for five breaths.  The series ended with Gomukhasana.  David asked for more, and so, per his request, Guruji added Supta Urdhva Pada Vajrasana as well as the seven headstands – Baddha Hasta Sirsasana A, B, C, and D were taught first, with Mukta Hasta Sirsasana A, B, and C following.  Guruji said these were from Fourth Series.
Backbends from both the floor (Urdhva Dhanurasana) and standing (“drop-backs”) were taught after Intermediate Series, as was the rest of the finishing sequence (Paschimottanasana, Salamba Sarvangasana, Halasana, Karnapidasana, Urdhva Padmasana, Pindasana, Matsyasana, Uttana Padasana, and Sirsasana). Up until this point, we had just been doing Yoga Mudrasana, Padmasana, and Tolasana at the end of our practice.
Guruji taught us Pranayama after we had learned the entire Intermediate Series (at the end of our third month in Mysore, about a month after learning all of Intermediate).
I think it was when Guruji came to teach on Maui in 1980 (in Paia) that he added in so many vinyasas, while teaching led classes.  When I asked him whether or not to do them in my own practice, as I had been practicing without – as he had taught me, he told me to add in the vinyasas to build my strength.  By that trip in 1980 there was still no Parivritta Trikonasana, Parivritta Parsvakonasana, Utkatasana, or Virabhadrasana in the practice.  (During another, later trip to the States, Guruji added in Parivritta Trikonasana and Parivritta Parsvakonasana. The next time he came back to Maui to teach, he saw us doing Parivritta Parsvakonasana, asked why we were doing it, and said that this was “crazy posture” and that we should take it out.  But the whole Maui crew loved it so much that he said we could leave it in.)  (Utkatasana and Virabhadrasana were perhaps added in at some point in the late 1980’s.)
Originally there were four series on the Ashtanga syllabus: Primary, Intermediate, Advanced A, and Advanced B.  A fifth series of sorts was the “Rishi series,” which Guruji said could be done once a practitioner had “mastered” these four.

If you happen to be on Maui, then you gotta go to Nancy’s House of Yoga & Zen 🙂
