Journey to Kumbha Mela

Posted by on Jan 13, 2013 in Travel, Uncategorized | 0 comments



From Januray 17-February 9, 2013, we will be journeying to India, on pilgrimage to the Kumbha Mela.  Happening once every 12 years and drawing an estimated 40-70 million people, Kumbha Mela is truly the pilgrimage of a lifetime.  Its purpose is the awakening of humanity to a higher state of consciousness – one in which we recognize the interconnectedness and sacredness of all life.  For us, yoga has always been a means to living this truth.   In a time when there is so much suffering in the world, nothing seems more important than experiencing and sharing these teachings.

   We will be traveling with the Himalayan Institute, and studying with master teachers Pandit Rajmani Tigunait, Rod Stryker and Rolf Sovik.  There is great power in practicing and studying  in the lands where yoga first took root.  It is our hope to share our experiences with you when we return to teaching in the middle of February.   A deep bow to all who have guided and walked upon this path with us, we hold you in our hearts.  If you would like to help support our journey, please click here.

With great love,

Namaste ~ Angela and Ben

What we’ve been up to…

Posted by on Dec 11, 2012 in Retreats, Travel, Uncategorized | 0 comments

A snippet of our past 2 months.  We’ve been living on the move.

An amazing group of practitioners came together at Camp duNord for our annual retreat.  We practiced, laughed, played in the snow, explored Ayurveda + Yoga, enjoyed massage, fires and food together…Fall Yoga Retreat 2012 = a success!  The next week we hit the road for Colorado + a training with our teacher Rod Stryker.  We nestled into mountain life at Avalanche Ranch (cabins + hot springs = perfect retreat).  We quickly fell into a daily routine of soaking in the hot springs, breakfast, yoga, soak, dinner, sleep.  Upon return, we received our India Visas!  We head to India in January…more details to come of our pilgrimage thru the Himalayan Institute.  And, finally, our completion of the fall harvest.  Our kale, collards + brussel sprouts were so unbelievably patient with us this year and now the freezer is stocked!

It’s a Small World After All…

We are at the airport in Yangon, Myanmar heading back to Thailand for a few days of beach and sun before returning to the frozen tundra of home. Everyone knows Minneapolis is a small town. We were again reminded how small the world is when on our 3 day trek we met the former boyfriend of one of my yoga students. Now we sit among familiar faces that have traveled a similar Myanmar itinerary. A couple that sat near us at dinner last night, a couple that watched the sunset over Bagan atop the same temple…we are boarding the plane soon, have a wonderful holiday week.
