When travels involve predictable family drama, emotions generally run unchecked. I have developed my yoga practice to such a habitual state, that the practice comes first wherever I am, and I remain somehow intact with the outer life. I did see and practice with my former teacher from Santa Cruz (Phil) http://eastyoga.com, as well as practice at my adopted studio, Jivamukti, www.jivamuktiyoga.com, where the owners taught master classes and a meditation forum that was powerful, the fact is, it’s all yoga, and it’s great to get out and test my core on other teachers.
TRAVEL, Santa Cruz Yogis! Try new studios, new teachers. As important as a student teacher relationship can be, more important is the practice of yoga for the sake of yoga, and that thing inside.
