CONGRATS TO CADEL!

i once shared a MTB ride with Cadel up Jones Creek when he was still a mountain biker…he eagerly sought more discussion about the Tibetan cause once i told him i studied at Naropa; it’s great to hear that Cadel is still actively concerned about Saving Tibet !

Dear Coach,
Vrksasana or tree pose is challenging. Whenever I lift a leg I start to lose balance. I get the “leaning tower of Pisa” look in order to maintain some stability even with my leg down near the opposite ankle. Is this a function of core strength? I am being patient and taking what I can each time.

Namaste,

Harry

WF Alchemy Again:  From Studio Yogi to Ultra Trail Marathon Man in 7 Months; Yogi Josh

and here, at mile 26, i felt…. fine. i had a full tank of pranic gas in my legs. my core was lifted, my head high, the integrity of my divine structure uncompromised, even after the grueling hills, the dramatic fall, the miles of effort. for someone who, seven months ago, had never run more than 10 miles in his life, to be in this state after an uphill marathon at altitude was absolutely remarkable…. and i attribute it all to you.

the journey we have taken together has quite simply redefined what is possible for me as a human being. and within the beauty that is the divine alchemy… my whole life is physically and spiritually transformed. i cannot thank you enough.

i took this shot after picking up Ananda just south of Baker’s Bridge a few days ago after she did some triathlon training. as a family, we then threw sticks into a creek, watched Wapiti Beings relax into a sunset, and just enjoy other basic family necessities. such sweetness in the moment is the Blessed Common Denominator to living in Durango…
