A big smile during Holy celebration at Purple Valley..

It has now been 1 month since we made our new teachers line up public, and already one of the retreats is almost fully sold out, only 5 non residential spots left for David/Gretchen and John Scott.

Starting working at Purple Valley in September 2013, already as an Ashtanga lover, I did not think it was possible to become more fascinated and affected by this wonderful practice. But for sure, from experience, it was possible. I can not even think of how it will be after the upcoming season. Having practised with so many  teachers, this season, it is clearly that the start of  ashtanga source, is the same.  Being different individuals, all of them are creating their own approach – but the trunk is the same.

The source of ashtanga – Guruji…and now Sharat.

The past season , and my first season as a Director of PV,  was amazing. We had many great teachers visiting the centre, and many great students as well.  But now we are preparing for the upcoming season. Opening up the doors of PV on the 25 October with lovely Maria Boox.

Laruga Glaser, from Stockholm,  will be PV for the first time.  Laruga and Mark Robberds will be teaching the Christmas workshop together. And also Maty Ezrat will be coming back. Petri will be coming  ( hopefully) with Wambui and their little Sesam,  for the full month of February 2015. Kino and Tim will be here whole of January 2015. David Robson, Mark and Joanne Darby, Alexander Medin and John Scott- two times in one season.  Not to forgetting Joey Miles. Can hardly wait for the coming season to start 🙂 and I wonder if miracles will happen on the mat, and of course outside.

Down a video with beautiful Laruga…

 

Finally for all of you who have been here and know our wonderful manager Santosh… he is now a married man. This was the first wedding of Purple Valley and both Santosh the Manager and Santosh the Gardener ( who also got married) are now going to live happily ever after 🙂
