i transformed one of my students of yoga/bodywork – a former National Champion in his sport – back to the top ten of last weekends’ National CycleCross Championships in Austin, TX. one year ago? his body was like the fabled tale of Zumbaks’ Suit; all twisted and contorted and full of deep cellular, neural, and hormonal imbalance from decades of professional cycling without a wholistic coach in his corner.

in the past 12 months…

“A ‘resolution’ is an impart upon the Tao which, in spiritual training, is a no-no…
however, if you choose me to play your game? i shall answer thusly:

my New Years’ Resolution is to re-incarnate into a MUCH HIGHER Teacher so that it doesn’t take soooooo long for the Outer World to
catch up with the Truth of Wholeness which sings, dances, animates, and orchestrates my Being, my Lifestory: Wholistic Fitness®!!!”

You, my Students…have again Taught me my Highest Lessons this year…

a key ingredient to the success of my injury-liberating, wholeness-gathering Path of training has been the yogic principle of ‘Ahimsa’ or ‘do no harm’ to your body, mind, or spirit while training. many more body-oriented fitness systems bulldoze the American public with their version of the “The Next Big Thing,” for personal fitness, leaving behind them a wake of non-Awakened, injured warriors. Realistically? One must honor the spiritual, mental, chemical, hormonal, and neural energetics first and foremost if you’re still gonna be cranking your fitness into your final chapters of your Sacred Journey called life….below, i answer a young Seeker’s question about my integration (or lack thereof?) of Kettle Bells into Wholistic Fitness®.

you know, feeble ilg actually spends a LOT of hours contemplating which people should play the Game of Leading where truly,
let’s be honest, no true Leaders lead…yes, politics. By Tradition, yoga teachers are apolitical, preferring to give our lives and sweat toward increasing and amplifying the Pranic Wholeness of people and then allow their enhanced Wisdom/Intuition to govern their choices…however, as my life is an open book, for better or worse, and for those of you that have Trusted in my humble, sweat and dharma based Path over the past 35 years? here is how i casted my ballot today…

When Aspens Can No Longer Whisper To Me…

These are my happy times, when the Aspens can no longer whisper their cheers to me… when, lower, the harvest begins to wane and the Bear Beings begin etching their long nocturnal nap beds…. when I force myself time and again to my lonely walk and work to the utmost upon this aging body of mine… There is warmth in the valleys
