Daisy Stoloff dancer/choreographer from San Fransisco

Feel the Fire
A weekend of intense yoga practice with Adam was well attended
and I think much enjoyed. We are looking to have a longer time together,
maybe 4 or 5 days next time. Adam is now in the US and Canada where
he continues his studies and practice of Hakomi mindfulness-based
self-inquiry and therapy.
He also will be teaching some Yoga workshops
there and hopes to have the opportunity to develop some personal growth
workshops weaving yoga and Hakomi together...
*****A big thank you to Emil for such a wonderful and inspiring
retreat. It helped us broaden
our concept of what yoga practice is and gave us a taste of the nectar
of stillness. We look forward to seeing you again next year.*****
'05: Sara is now back to bring her fresh crop of insights and understandings
after a summer season assisting many major teachers in the US and elsewhere.
She is offering some great workshops (see below)
and will be teaching some of the regular classes.
I'm now back from the USA where I've been immersing myself
in my ongoing study and practice of Hakomi mindfulness based self-inquiry.
A wonderful method of assisted self-study and discovery. I hope to get
the opportunity to share some of this work with you over the coming
year. It weaves in with yoga practice so beautifully.
want to thank Sandra who has been such a warm and caring presence during
her stay as the principal yoga teacher during my absence. I know many
people will miss her, and probably go and study with her in India, to
where she returns soon. We wish here all the best and hope she will
return next year grace us with her knowledge and gentleness.
our Pilates teacher is back from Canada and classes are now up and running
again. Now even more classes are on the schedule to make it easier for
you to benefit.
more nice surprises in the pipeline -- not confirmed as yet, so keep
Notes from before: July 2005
It's been a busy season, with a lot of interesting stuff going on. On
the yoga front, we've had some visiting Viniyoga eachers in from the
USA who taught a weekend workshop. Sara and Jonas have led various events,
retreats, workshops, partners days. We all miss Sara's regular classes,
and the light but committed spirit she brings to them. They are both
now back into their busy schedules in the US and elsewhere, but should
be back in November. I (Adam) have even managed to squeeze in the occasional
workshop, most notably the "Feel the Fire" intensive recently,
which I certainly enjoyed, as did the participants, I think. This may
become a regular monthly event, where we can get together for some intense
practise, and look at Pranayamas and Asanas that don't often get covered.
The workshop that Mark Elsner taught end of May was
well attended and a real pearl of learning for all of us. We managed
to persuade him to stay around and continue teaching the Level 2 classes
for the whole of June. These were extremely enjoyable and informed,
as well as being an intense workout. Nice one, and thanks, Mark.
On other fronts, Josh gave us a great time with his
salsa classes. He, and they, will be missed and we hope he will be ack
next season to whirl 'n' twirl us with some hot latin moves.
Christina is moving on, back to California. Her popular
weekly Pilates classes have been a great addition to the Studio, giving
an intense core workout! Again, we hope she'll be back next season.
Since then Mark has taken over teaching Pilates,
upping the number of classes to 3 per week, and building a loyal following.
He too is back to Canada but promises to return more permanently in
Oh, and thanks to Toni from NewYork City who brought
us a full-on weekend of Pilates way back in November.
We also had a dance/movement workshop hosted
by Sandra from Mexico....
So it's a more quiet time here in Chiang Mai
as tourists and residents drift off. Regular classes are continuing,
and John is promising to return to give us good pointers on the meditation
side in Sept/Oct.
I'm in communication with various people who are
interested in coming and teaching, so I'll keep you up to date just
assoon as anything's definite --- it looks like this winter
is going to be an extremely busy time at the Studio....
July 21st I am travelling to Australia and the USA wher
I continue deepening into Hakomi mindfulness-based Psychotherapy practice
until mid-September. We are very fortunate to have Sandra taking over
the classes in the interim.
practising, and I wish you all the best of happiness and health. Namaste,
