Christopher @ New York Yoga starting next Wednesday, June 18

Christopher wanted me to get the following message out to his students who wish to continue their practice with him, and to those who wish to begin their practice with him:

"Beginning next Wednesday 18 June, I shall be teaching Ashtanga weekday mornings from 7:30 to 9:30 (opening and closing times are flexible)

at New York Yoga, 1629 York Avenue at 86th Street.

Showers will be available for Ashtanga students at the New York Yoga office directly across the street,

and at the New York Yoga HOT studio at 132 East 85th Street around the corner.

I hope to see you soon!


Christopher didn't mention this, but when I went on New York Yoga's web site, I saw that the monthly fees are only $139 per month. Pretty sweet.

Totally out of the loop... Christopher left Yoga Sutra? What happened? And where are you practicing in the West Village?

Tell all!

This is Christopher?

He looks like an intellectual.
He looks very likable.

I don't know why but I'm positively surprised. I have had another picture in mind of him.

Ursala, Christopher is an intellectual, with a great sense of humor. He is the best ashtanga teacher I have ever had. And he is warm, caring, and most sincere. He is unique human being. If you are ever in NYC, take a class with him, introduce yourself, and you will probaly be very happy.

On another note, Pure Yoga hired two non ashtanga people to run their ashtanga program. I think this decision was made before Christopher was available. Pure made a very bad decision.

I have been in touch with the people at Pure. They claim their selection of teachers is temporary and if ashtanga does not do well at Pure, they may change teachers (hire Chrsitopher?) in the fall.

I will be at NY Yoga Wed morning for sure, shower or no shower

New York IS on my list.

Thanks for your answer.

I think I'm stopping by for his first day.

itsall - bygones.

Ursala and LGR - such wonderful things you're saying.

Boodiba - I am sure he will be very happy to see you! And bring YA and the Real Ashtangini. And Anna! I won't be there until June 30, so there won't be any gang warfare...;)

People might not want me speaking for them, so I deleted it.

I'm used to starting at 6:45/6:50. BUT I'm not used to having 30m of walking plus a long-ass subway right to Mars between me & the mat.

I just did a little deleting myself - tends to reduce the drama, even where drama was never intended.

I am hoping NYY expands the time to earlier AND later (like 6:30 to 11?) when they see (which they HOPEFULLY WILL!) that Chris is bringing in the numbers that make it worth it to do so.

My friend T just called told me I am no longer YC, but CP. Chris's Pimp.

boodiba said...

You can't be CP. CP is Cream Puff, Bobina's fiance.

Oh, crap.
