Nancy Gilgoffs London Ashtanga yoga workshops...Humility.



Ive had a wonderful week with Nancy- she came and taught three days of workshops in my studio here in Putney. We had a great time together and I was honoured to have been her assistant during the three days of practice.
We talked about all sorts of things: from the teachings of the Dali lama, discussing ( and practising) pranayama, and even watched a fair amount of the Wimbledon tennis together. I heard lots of stories about guruji and his family, and the early days in Mysore. I feel I have learnt a lot from her on this trip and none of this was about asana.
I have a real sense at the moment that the more I know, the less I know.....this yoga is a lifetime journey and I have only scratched the surface.

Here are some photos.....

Mysore, Sharath Jois & me....


There is so much to talk about about my recent trip to Mysore- but as I am still tying to assimilate the experience, I think a photo is the way to go.This photo was taken at the end of my last conference day-I dug up the courage to ask Sharath a question ( anyone who has been to his conferences will know its a teeny bit scary :-))...again I may share this and the response in another posting.
I will say that Sharath is a kind and gentle man- who has truly given his life over to sharing Ashtanga yoga

Who is yoga mama...?

yoga mama is the yoga company set up by Cherie Lathey, who has spent the past 20 years working in the fitness industry as a gym instructor and personal trainer, and has worked for the Lawn Tennis Association at the Wimbledon qualifiers since 1993, providing warm-up exercises for the ball boys and girls. She started practising yoga on a regular basis in 1994, after attending a workshop run by David Swenson. The physical and spiritual nature of yoga enhanced her flexibility, strength and balance so much that she decided to train to become a yoga teacher.

Her journey as a trainee took her to the It's Yoga School in San Francisco, California; where she earned the International Yoga Alliance qualification under the guidance of Larry Schultz, an Astanga yoga teacher. Since qualifying, Cherie has furthered her knowledge by travelling to India and attending many workshops in several disciplines. She has had the privilege of gaining insight from many great teachers such as Nancy Gilgoff and John Friend. Cherie gained her pregnancy yoga knowledge and qualification with Uma Dinsmore-Tuli through The Life Centre in London.

Cherie’s classes reflect her experience and background. She continues to teach in many leading clubs and her clients range from Hollywood actresses to care in the community classes. She is a qualified masseur, a Reiki II practitioner and is also joint director of the Putney Clinic in London.
