Jivamukti with Dechen Thurman

Exhausted and inspired from a weekend of Jivamukti with Dechen Thurman. Since there aren't very many Jivamukti teachers in Montreal, I don't often get to take a Jivamukti class. It was so nice to practice my favorite style and to get to know a new teacher.

Dechen is filled with knowledge and insight, so it was great to have him at the studio. We hadn't met before last weekend, until he showed up at our doorstep at 7am on Saturday morning! It was a whirlwind of a weekend. We made sure to take him to 2 our favorite restaurants (Olive & Gourmando, and Aux Vivres), walked around the Old Port, drove past the mountain (busy yogis), made some of our favorite recipes (Jae Steele's Spaghetti Squash with tomato sauce, Love Soup & Cowgrrrl Cookies) and he even squeezed in Saturday mornings class with Bram.

The workshops were both amazing; fun music, new sequences, crazy adjustments, mantras, meditation, insights, and some hilarious shorts that left everyone giggling.

It's always a bit of craziness when we have a guest teacher, but soooooo worth it! I'm very grateful to Dechen for taking the time out of his busy schedule, and making the effort to come to Luna to share his teachings.
