Update: new events with Douglas and Jordan in 2014: check out the schedule page for details.
For most of us, our first taste of yoga is through an asana class. We try to bend ourselves into these strange and foreign positions, huffing and puffing for over an hour while the teacher whispers sweet, spiritual nothings, which we hardly hear. And then for ten brief minutes, we lie down and emerge feeling refreshed, relaxed and renewed. What sweetness and delight – we get our first hit!
We keep coming back for more and more in an honest attempt to understand and know the deeper and inner teachings of this curious practice. We pick up a copy of the Yoga Sutras, wanting to learn more, only to be lulled to sleep after the first few lines! We study the Bhagavad Gita, and at best, receive a mix of mystery, confusion and inaccessible ideas. We are inspired by the wonderful myths and stories of yoga, but are left wondering, what has this got to do with me and my life in the 21st century. This is how many experience yoga, and this is how it was for me… wonderful and curious, but in reality, out of reach…
Until one weekend I got a back stage pass, and it all opened up and started to make sense. All of a sudden it was not this esoteric tradition and philosophy stuck in the 11th century, but this vibrant, inspiring and brilliant collection of teachings that can empower us to live extraordinary lives in a modern, 21st century world.
In short, what I got was ACCESSIBILITY. It was a number of years ago that I attended this first weekend workshop with Dr. Douglas Brooks, a world renowned expert and scholar of yoga and a down to earth teacher!
Over the years Douglas has also become a friend. And this summer we will be joining forces in Europe for two major events and opportunities to practice and study!
You are hereby invited to the back stage party! FULL ACCESS!!! This is an opportunity not to be missed. We will be joined by all the stars and rockers of this great tradition (think Shiva, Hanuman, Kali and Lakshmi, among others) in two great cities of Europe: Vienna and Copenhagen! You don’t wanna miss this.
Backstage passes are still available. For one day, or two, the weekend, or the whole damn thing… don’t miss it. We will be immersed in the beautiful Austrian summer, surrounded by vineyards, art and culture! Contact our host to secure your pass now!
The party continues mid-summer in Copenhagen where the sun only sets for a few hours a night and the days are long. We will be by the sea and take in some major sun and fun! Passes are available for 1, 2 or 3 days or the whole Shebang!
Contact our host to secure your pass now!
The party is just getting started and the summer is just heating up. Come get your backstage passes here!
