The lovely Clay Tison came and recorded my 12:30 class yesterday and put it on her blog Asheville Asana. It’s an all levels class with the theme of Tapas. Tapas is one of the Niyamas, the yogic self-practices that help us along the path. Tapas means discipline or fire. Unfortunately, my introductory talk at the beginning of class was lost, but hopefully you will be able to get the gist of the theme anyway.

Keep in mind that although this was an all levels class, trying to follow it with audio only would be extremely difficult for a beginner. However, if you have a good knowledge of yoga or were at this specific class and are therefore able to follow, feel free to use it as a home practice during the week. I haven’t listened to it yet so I’m feeling pretty brave putting it out there for public consumption. Feedback would be appreciated, though please keep in mind that this is not a professional recording and the class was designed as an in-person experience, rather than audio only.

Clay’s intention for the recordings is for people to be able to get a taste of what a specific teacher is like, rather than have people necessarily practice along with the recording. So if you find it useful and can practice with it, we want to know!

If people like it, we will probably record more both for asheville asana and possibly for here.
