Where has the MHC been the last month?
Some of you may have noticed that there have been no new MHC blogs lately, and you may be wondering why. For the last month, I've been practicing, traveling, learning, and teaching, which has been a treat. I completed two Yoga Tune Up immersions in the end of July and early August, followed by attending a YTU teacher summit with Jill Miller in Ojai in mid-August. I also taught regular yoga classes at a studio in Pasadena,CA for the first two weeks of August, while the owner was out of town. I then spent a little over two weeks in Zimbabwe (with the NGO Cultures in Harmony), where I had the opportunity to collaborate with traditional African musicians as well as teach classical music to musicians of all ages at Musicamp, Zimbabwe's national winter music program. It was such a treat to visit such an amazing country with a rich musical and dance tradition, and the people I met were kind, caring, and hard working. I can't wait to go back! I also was able to teach the students a few things about self-care, shoulders, warm-ups, and body things, so that was a treat too.
Things are just starting to get busy back in San Antonio with the symphony season, and I'm also teaching embodied anatomy modules for one of the yoga teacher trainings in town. I'm looking forward to new collaborations with Haven for Hope and continued music performances with Harbour Hospice. Despite it all, there are lots of great writing projects that I've put on hold, and I'm looking forward to having the time (and the computer and internet access) to write again after a month long hiatus. Happy labor day and fall!
