Hi there yogis,
A cold weekend just made for reading and catching up… here is something I read, a quote from Carl Sagan I dredged up from my records… He was a terrific man and I was lucky enough to know him – he made The Best yorkshire puddings at christmastime.
“I have a foreboding of an America in my children’s or grandchildren’s time — when the United States is a service and information economy; when nearly all the manufacturing industries have slipped away to other countries; when awesome technological powers are in the hands of a very few, and no one representing the public interest can even grasp the issues; when the people have lost the ability to set their own agendas or knowledgeably question those in authority; when, clutching our crystals and nervously consulting our horoscopes, our critical faculties in decline, unable to distinguish between what feels good and what’s true, we slide, almost without noticing, back into superstition and darkness…
The dumbing down of American is most evident in the slow decay of substantive content in the enormously influential media, the 30 second sound bites (now down to 10 seconds or less), lowest common denominator programming, credulous presentations on pseudoscience and superstition, but especially a kind of celebration of ignorance”
REGISTRATION – COURSES
Talking about sound bites. Please – If you have not addressed your course in some time, if you have not registered, do it now. It is not entirely fair to suddenly realise you have not emailed us for YEARS, and expect that life will just fall into place for you. I know from my own experience, if you don’t contact course providers for 6 months, you are discontinued whether you have paid in full or not. I have stretched that, but the elastic will only stretch so far!!! I will provide an amnesty to the beginning of the financial year (July 2023), then I will put in place a penalty. You can’t expect to just pick up with no cost.
If you have not registered yet this year, here is another thing that needs to be done yearly. Please check your records, and get up to date. No penalties here except for the fact that you are not entirely complying, and are not a member of this Institute without a yearly registration – if you check with accountants for instance, registration and ongoing training is mandatory for them, and many other professions. We are professionals, and we have to act like professionals – REGISTER NOW.
Unexpectedly more students enquiring for class, and I have both classes full on Monday… I hope this is your experience. Maybe my experience has to do with a little for sale notice on the Kyneton Yoga Business. I would love it if I have outlived another “fabulous” yoga business…how many is that???
NEW CLASS? How about Thursday morning for a 10am yoga class here at the studio?
