All this thinking about expenses came about because of the teachers coming to Manila to offer classes and workshops. How exciting! Prices range from Php 700 - 1500 per class. Add them all up and the sum total is not a pretty picture.
But why pass up on a great opportunity to grow your practice? I think these workshops are good investments. They are also fun events to meet fellow yogis. Makes me realize that the yoga community in Manila is alive and growing :)
So in no particular order, here are the teachers coming to Manila
Govinda Kai through Bliss Yoga. Ashtangi. Govinda will be offering Mysore practice and a yoga retreat at Tali Beach Resort. The retreat should be fun! Yoga, beach, and farming for 5 days. Check out Govinda's biography at www.lunaticmonk.com
Jessica Blanchard through Yoga Manila. Ashtangi and ayurveda expert. I attended her Mysore and ayurveda classes last year. Will repeat this year! She is a kind and warm teacher. She has great cooking tips and offers one-on-one sessions.

Mark Robberds through Bliss Yoga. Ashtangi. Highly recommended by my other teachers. He has a surfer yogi look going for him :P Mark is authorized to teach the Intermediate series of Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga. He is an Advanced student of Guruji and R.Sharath. Looking forward to his Mysore class and "Fire Away and Play" workshop.

John Scott through Stillpoint Manila. Ashtangi. His workshop is the Alchemy of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. One breath, one body, one mind, one consciousness, infinite potential. How can you not get excited with that tagline? I have heard many, many good things about John Scott and I am looking forward to meeting him this September.
