I'm just back from a wonderful and inspiring week in Ecuador, where I had the lovely fortune to teach YogaVoice for four days in Quito. I am more than grateful to my hosts, the Salazar family, for their beautiful hospitality that made me truly feel as though I was part of their family. The food was outstanding and their warmth and friendship will never be forgotten.
We talk in YogaVoice about Yoga as a technology that brings together aspects of life and art that appear as "opposites", unifying these into a cohesive and comprehensive "whole". My trip to Quito was a "Yoga"... a yoking and union of cultures and people who found common language through the YogaVoice practice and the joy of authentic music making. Special thanks goes to Andrea Salazar for her incredible talent as a translator and interpreter. Every concept and nuance of the YogaVoice teaching was expertly communicated in Spanish with clarity so that every participant was able to embody the teaching. In the end, the union of Yoga, breath, and music proved to be the common language that brought a wholeness to us all.
I look forward to future YogaVoice sessions in Ecuador!
