Happy New Year and Vanakkam (Tamil word for "Greetings")
My wife Maren and I are just back from our first trip to India with our teacher and friend Douglas Brooks. It truly was a spectacular journey filled with incredible people and experiences that we will cherish for a lifetime. We both wanted to go to India for years and this trip exceeded even our wildest dreams of what it could be. It also tested us on every level, was filled with intensity and chaos, long hours of travel, and transformative like nothing we could have perceived. I am humbled by all of the beautiful people and places we experienced and realize how lucky we are to be able to do such things.
As we as step into 2015 I am very inspired to share and dive deeper into life and yoga. To begin the year at Yoga at the Raven I am offering two 30 day programsthat are open to anyone and everyone. One is on Meditation and the other is called "Build the Body” which will focus on building and strengthening the body in a safe and effective way. For the first time in February I will lead a 300 Hour Teacher Training. It excites me to my core to be able to share and mentor a small group of yogis and take them on this unique journey. Our 200 Hour Teacher Training begins in late February and this is open to people that want to teach and also for those that want to dive deeper into all things yoga. Please look below for a detailed description of all of the courses and feel free to reach out with any questions.
In the next few weeks I will release online classes through a new company calledVenice Beach Yoga and I am so excited to share this with everyone. I will be sending you a 20 minute class as a gift and thank you for your continued love, support and inspiration.
Here is to a healthy 2015!
Much love, Tony
