This was a long time coming, and a fairly big deal. And, as things which are a long time coming and a fairly big deal always happen to be, this is so simple. You can now subscribe to deeper practice videos. All of Karin's deep anatomy and deep philosophy, ruthless ditch the sequence and the alignment and find the breath, teaching. In your pocket, your cellphone, or your living room.
Each week you'll get a 90 minute asana sequence AND a 30 minute breath/meditation/technique video. That's two hours of practice a week, at your convenience, for fifty bucks a month.
More expensive than the freebies on youtube or the other subscription sites, yes. But I'm not teaching canned vinyasa. I'm not looking for mass production, but for a way to interact with human beings, provide a context for learning and practice. This is deeper practice, my teaching, getting the tools and actually understanding what's going on, feel the difference in your life, stuff. I draw the people who are called to personal change. To deep thinking. To reason, not vapid hippy-dippy stuff. I teach to people who love yoga but have become disillusioned with the culture and the studios. To people who realize it isn't about contortions. Folks who realize sun salutations aren't always possible, chronic illness is hard, that there's something to asana and breath that is NOT about alignment or advanced postures. I teach to soul and am only really interested in teaching, that. Let the masses learn, elsewhere.
More expensive than the freebies and the cheapies and the franchised studios, yes. But, still, you could pay for unlimited classes in studio, and get the subscription, for less than other studio's class packages. Those things are two and three hundred bucks.
This is what I believe: learning, healing, the gifts of practice are available to anyone who makes an honest commitment. But the gifts of practice involve breath, meditation, study, developing body literacy, and intelligence AS MUCH AS ASANA. Asana are, ideally, paths right up to those other bits. You could practice postures for years and still be a jerk. Or, practice postures for years and wonder why you're still miserable. Or, practice a certain style for a while and then be lost and confused when illness, injury, or life trouble comes up. Or, finish your RYT 200 and realize you don't know diddley squat, yet, and long for more.
We need practices that go to depth, and don't snag on the superficial.
Put this in your toolbox. If you miss my teaching, sign up. If you can't make studio classes. If you've never been to the studio, but are still drawn to reading and the idea, of having a personal yoga practice.
Yoga is personal. Take it that way.
