The Hanuman Festival 2013 Newsletter!
We're just a few months away from the best yoga festival in Colorado! If you've purchased your pass, it's time to register! With over 45 different classes on the schedule, daily inspirational talks, a stellar music line-up, and sweet vendor village, it can be a little overwhelming, but here's some advice on how to plan an amazing weekend.
Speaking of music, did you hear the big news? The poetic and beat-loving MC Yogi will be rocking it with DJ Drez on Saturday night at the Boulder Theater! Check it out.
In the meantime, we're ready for Kathryn Budig's High Vibration weekend of workshops this weekend. The response has been overwhelming and we're moving the Friday night class to a larger venue! It will now be held at the Sherman Street Event Center in Denver. More tickets are available too! Doors open at 6PM and Yoga beings at 7PM. We hear there is going to be an epic dance party afterwards!
PS ~ Boulder classes are sold out! But check the schedule and stop by to say hi!

Happy Registering Yogis!
Meet Gwen Lawrence. Inspired by coaches and athletes and a self-described addict to anatomy, Gwen Lawrence travels more than 30K miles a year to teach sport-specific Power Yoga for Sports for five Pro sports teams in NY. Busy and driven, she is also deeply devoted to her family and honestly admits she struggles to find the time and place to meditate.
We caught up with this fierce and amazingly efficient woman, and let's just say, we can't wait for the athletic-based classes, but wish we had a surplus of sandbags for a long, deeply-held session too.
Hanuman: What are your goals as a student in the next year?
Gwen: As a busy working mom, my biggest personal struggle is finding the time & place to meditate. I truly would like to accomplish a more formal practice, I need it. Currently my meditation is a 10 minute mantra based practice. I realize my sound mind & body is pivotal to the mood of my family. A saying in my home is "if mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy."
Hanuman: What is your favorite yoga pose?
Gwen: Hmmm, that is a toughy, my favorite yoga pose changes with my needs. I think the ones that make me be still and face the music. I love long deep holds like 20 minute frogs or forward bends. I like working them with sand bags. I also love a 20 minute plow with about 25 pounds of sandbags on my lower legs. I love how the weight encourages the depth for me.
