30 days of Yoga

The 30 days of yoga course beginning on 12 June is now full. The next course will begin on 10 August (new moon) and registrations will open in July. If you’d like early notice and a chance to secure your place, then you can sign up to my back-stage access mailing list either here or in the side bar to the right of this post. Make sure that you select either “30 days of yoga” or “All this and more” to get the updates about 30 days of yoga.

If you had asked me to hold you a place in the June course and have not yet paid for your place, I am still holding that for you. Just get in touch as soon as possible and I’ll send you the link to make payment and fill out the questionnaire. I need everyone’s questionnaires back by Tuesday 1 June, so please get in touch with me as soon as you can.

Now it’s time to make some yoga! Today is yet another wet, windy and cold Sunday in Wellington so I think I may just make some yoga in the bath before I head out to teach the last week of our latest seven week Yoga in Action: Off the Mat course. We’ll be finishing up the course with an evening of kirtan (chanting or ‘how yogis get high’) tonight, which is guaranteed to lift my spirits and warm the cockles of my heart.

May your heart’s cockles be warmed today, wherever you are.

    Hi Marianne, I just found your blog online and would have really loved to have done your 30 day yoga course. If anyone cancels out I would love to take there place. Thanks Lisa

    Hey Marianne, I’ve got a challenge for ya’. [smile]

    What kind of program can you come up with for all those tired overworked third-world volunteer workers who squeeze more work into each day that is humanly possible, who are mentally challenged by being immersed in a very different culture for extended periods, who rarely get to eat anything resembling healthy or remember to take care of themselves as much as they do for the people they are helping?

    If anyone can come up with something it’s you. [big smile]

      Hi Jim,

      That’s what the 30 days of yoga is all about! I designed it specifically for tired, overworked volunteer workers! Last time around I had participants in Afghanistan, Southern Sudan, Cambodia, Kosovo, Timor-Leste and the DRC. I choose a practice for each of them and supply it in formats (including mp3 files for their iPods and good old fashioned paper) that work for people living in tents with generators only two hours per day.

      If anyone can do it, I can do it because I was that tired, overworked person living in the middle of the mountains of Afghanistan with unreliable power and no access to green vegetables for months at a time.

      This is exactly why I put together the 30 days and my dream is that one day the organisations will pay for it for their staff rather than the staff having to pay for it themselves. I have been able to get sponsorships for a few people whose volunteer stipends wouldn’t stretch to $100 for the month – although I think it’s a really good price for what I provide and much cheaper than getting sick!
