Dear Coach Ilg –

i first got turned onto your work from TOTAL BODY TRANSFORMATION…as an artist? I have got to say that your body of work c(om)pletely (as you would probably write it!) revamped my entire way of thinking of ‘art.’ So many who called ourselves ‘artists’ have little – if any – conception of what ‘art’ means when it comes to to transforming the current palette of our body/mind/spirit into a Higher Fitness/Consciousness as you have so beautifully demonstrated throughout your life; you have changed everything from your sports, your paralysis, your writing, your everything and now, perhaps as the most exquisite and most recent brush to your life journey; your fatherhood.

my big vice is NEWS! yes, that’s right…news. i feed upon headlines, articles, breaking reports…i know this must sound horrid to you..yet, as you have Taught me, “We all have our addictions, it’s just a matter of vibration.”

so, if you’d be soooo kind to answer me this ONE QUESTION (i’ve enclosed a Temple Tithe for your time and consideration):

where do you get your “Outer World” news?

stealing another line from you:

Head Bowed,
Stacy

Moving is like a heart-shaped cactus; prickly but precious!! Dewa last month in Sedona on Bell Rock with quite a find; a heart-shaped Cactus Being!

i trust this catches you in Conscious Breath and Posture…

engaging the yogic principles of Vairāgya (non-attachment/disppassion) and Aparigraha (non-greediness)…
i am moving downriver and downsizing…
and, honestly (Satya) i’m moving to attempt to keep my family in my hometown on a feeble yoga teacher’s income…how did my native town become so expensive in which to live is mind-boggling!

Big Medicine Day for feeble ilg..i re-visited after a couple of decades my old ‘office’ of Eldorado Canyon where during a decade i was engulfed in a tidal wave of sacred creation; where once i put up dozens of First Ascents which to this day, legions of rock climbers still monument my original ascents…oh, baby, have things changed since my near daily pilgrimages to this unspeakably precious crayola-colored canyon hallmarked by a clear, wild creek rushing over still tumbling (though be it in slow-motion) boulders.

Student Q and A:  cycling racing and TBT programs…

May I ask a training question? I have followed and embrace your book, but I am wondering if you have a recommendation of what to do during a race season (that just started and has ~9 weeks left)? For example, am I cosmic yang-ing my way through the first half of the season then Jeweled Lotus my way through the finish? Or do I just ride my pants off?!?

when White Brother came to Turtle Island, this month was named “March”

to the Natives of Turtle Island it was named something more appropriate.

among the Navajo, upon whose treasured lands within the 4 Sacred Posts (Four Sacred Mountains) feeble ilg has spent lovingly and longingly most of this life, this month is known as : Wóózhch’į́į́d = the premature voice of or cry of an eaglet

ahhhh….

doesn’t that just Vibe higher within our Soul than..

MARCH

?

come, cuddle close to my Tribal Fire tonight…i’ll teach you more about Wóózhch’į́į́d…
invoke an image of a tribal fire, each of us close…stars beyond count winking at us beneath our blankets as the Trickster Clan howls from a far off ridge…
