Afterward I will be staying in Nairobi a few days with Paige Elenson and Africa Yoga Project amazing... If you are not familiar with AYP please check out their website www.africayogaproject.org. The founder Paige is not only a Jivamukti teacher but has done numerous trainings and brings teachers and support from all over the world to use the teachings of yoga in Nairobi's urban environment and make it a spiritually and financially viable solution to some of the problems people live with. Next down south to see Cherryl Duncan in Johannesburg before Cape Town. SA All Day is a past posting on here with Cherryl.

Michael Franti in KY

I took this at a Michael Franti concert Ocotber 2010. Had was in Kentucky as I was teaching in Loveland Ohio at the World Peace Yoga Jubilee/ Jivamukti Satsang. So I snuck out with MC Yogi and Amanda and we went to this. This show he was on fire and playing from his new album the Sound of Sunshine as well as some classics. If you do not know him please check out his music it is becoming a lot more mainstream which is an amazing thing. The we have him in the spotlight the better. He also have a great documentary called "I know I am not alone" very moving about the healing power of music and communication as he travels to Iraq, Israel, and Palestine. This clip is a bit short and not great quality but you can hear him pretty well.

Something a bit different

I have been in NYC for about a week now and it feels great to be able to practice at Jivamukti whenever I want and I do not have to teach. I was catching up with a friend who has been practicing at Jivamukti for many years and she said she was reading about my travels via my blog. I replied that you must not know very much as I am the worst when it comes to linear blogging, she agreed adding that I mostly talk write about vegan findings at airports. Taking a picture of a snowman chilling on the park bench in Thompkin Square, on my way back from a yoga class, I found a bunch of pictures that I had forgotten about featuring some other great beings. Here is the first one. It is actually from maybe 2 yrs ago in Berlin with the amazing Andreas.

As I was writing this out I noticed a "type in Hindi option" in my tool bar...When did that get there?
