The Shala needs YOU!!
Alright, Shivas and Shaktis, yogis and yoginis. It looks like we'll be shooting some pics at the shala in a few weeks. Well, actually, we often shoot pics during class for no particular reason (except maybe this blog). But in this case, we'll have an actual pho-TA-grapher who knows how to work a lens. The idea is to get ourselves a nice file of quality photos for any ol' promotional/self-aggrandizing future purposes we may have or come up with.
Currently, it looks like we'll be shooting on February 7th and 8th, during Saturday's Vinyasa III (1230 - 2) and Sunday's ubiquitous Led Primary Series, respectively. We'd like to have lots of people in these classes, for obvious reasons, and so we're putting out the call and offering a $5 drop-in cost for any and all who heed it. These classes will go as they always do; that is, we won't be "posing up" any shots or doing any 3rd, 4th, or 10th takes on Dikasana to get the photo just right. We want to represent the shala for what it is: real yoga, in real time. REAL TALK!! (this will take you to an extremely HI-larious but witheringly profane video by R. Kelly. That's right: R-Kels. I don't think he does Ashtanga...meh. Watch if you dare - you've been warned!)
We're also considering inviting in a traveling/professional yogi to do a workshop and/or kirtan for us. Anybody interested?
Finally, here's a creepy pic to freak your sh*t out.
