A Durango Gem of a Trail loaded with full frontal WF Chi:  LOG CHUTES!

located a glorious 7 miles and a thousand-plus feet higher than my riverfront home lies a special – if not hallowed – yes, c(om)e to TAF it…it IS hallowed – training ground…i’ve known it since a kid borrowing Lorie Worthan’s automatic clutch, 3-speed Honda trail bike, upon which i swear to Lord Shiva, i’d take up to these trails among the wild Turkey, Coyote, Fox, Deer, Elk, and Bear Beings and strip my ass butt naked, and motor around on these trails fast as i could…pressing my little scrotum against the wide, sweaty vinyl seat seeking new dizzying heights of pre-orgasmic bliss…flash forward to me today, 40-odd years later; same trails, same nearly orgasmic sensations…the only difference? i ain’t naked (though i’d like to be), and i’m either running or mountain biking…or, like earlier today? i’m doing both…c’mon; welcome to The Logchute Trail System!

NEW!  HP Yoga™ Sequence: New Year’s Flow, 2011

New Year Flow; 2011

Here is an offering for your solo asana Practice in celebration of your devoted support, strength, and spirit. This Slow Flow HP Yoga™ vinyasa routine – which takes between one hour to 90 minutes depending on how deliciously deep you want to go – was created throughout 2010. This NYF 2011 reflects some of my most healing, energizing, and popular sequences from my personal and professional yoga practice and instruction. I actually refined this routine in early December, 2010 while channeling during solo asana to Self Heal a severely sprained knee. The salient and palpable training effect from this flow is a deeply rejuvenating tonic for the body, mind, and spirit. Enjoy! All abilities.

Translated directly from my Zendo Notes…
