Spring 2022 Catskill Mountains, New York

Namaste Beautiful Friends!

Is life somewhat back to normal? Have we reached herd immunity? There are many questions still to address. This is Memorial Weekend in the United States, I wish to offer condolences to all who are missing loved ones at this time.

Earlier this year I received an invitation from the Sivananda Yoga Ranch in New York to participate as they prepare for reopening in June. They have been fully closed for almost 2 years. Sivananda Vedanta Yoga was my first formal yoga training in 1980. I respect the organization for the integrity they maintain in their teachings. Yoga and Vedanta form two branches of the 6 formal Hindu Philosophies.

We were kept very busy and I had a difficult time with the temperatures, being the San Diego “weather wimp” that I am. Therefore the following photos are not the best examples of what transpired. But it was great to make new “karma yogi” friends and return to the exemplary practices of an Ashram. I am wishing them a grand re-opening and a great Yoga Teacher Training beginning in July. Do check out their website for more info.

Sending Love and Light to you my friends, to our country the USA, and to our Planet Mother Gaia.

Wishing you More Love More Light More Peace

Labor Day King’s Canyon Retreat 2022

Happy Spring to All, be that Easter, Passover, or Ramadan! It seems viral awareness is here to stay, even as everyone celebrates the return to a more “normal” life without masking and lockdowns. With our schools back to a regular schedule, I would hope many families will be planning summer holidays and vacations.

As you see in this post, my friend El Larson and I will be repeating our Yoga and Sound Retreat in King’s Canyon National Park. Last year we had a truly fun event amid the more strict Covid protocols (see the blog post for August 2021). The Retreat facility, Camp Far Horizons, is a beautiful and special place, albeit quite rustic. For hardy yoga friends our Retreat is an exceptional occasion to explore the National Parks of King’s Canyon and Sequoia, with Yoga and Sound Immersion as daily practices. We have chosen the Labor Day holiday as an end of summer opportunity to get away. Please join us if at all possible. I am always happy to hear from each and everyone!

Many Blessings

Namaste

Anne’s Teaching Schedule

Anne has returned to San Diego having lived the life of a “traveling yogini” for nearly 9 years. Her studies have taken her to India and across the USA to multiple retreat and ashram settings, as well as exploring off the track parts of this beautiful country. Most of that travel has been documented in this blog. Anne is very grateful for the opportunities provided by this lifestyle and wishes to share as much as possible with students and friends in the US and Mexico. Please contact her if you would like to offer a workshop or other teaching experience.

Please check out the info on the Labor Day 2022 Yoga and Sound Immersion Retreat in Kings Canyon National Park.  Yoga, Sound Baths, and Stupendous Natural Beauty, what could be better!!  For more info contact Anne at yoga@annenowell.com
