Yoga for Gardeners Workshop — Call for Questions

Next Saturday, March 14th, 2:30-5pm, is the Yoga for Gardeners Workshop at Willow Street Yoga Center’s Takoma Park Studio.  A portion of the proceeds will go to the benefit of the Youth Garden at the National Arboretum.  It will be a most enjoyable way to prepare for the gardening season, especially after having been inspired by this weekend’s incredibly spring-like weather.   Advance registration is appreciated, though not required, and all levels of yogins and gardeners welcome.

You can come just open to what will be offered — I’ve got lots to share — but if you have specific questions about how to use yoga alignment while gardening, how to address various challenges of embodiment in the garden, or even yoga philosophy or other gardening/yoga topics, please feel free to send them to me as a comment to this entry or by separate email.  I may not be able to get to every question right away, but I will try to address common questions in the workshop and here on the blog and am also always available after class to discuss individual questions.

    Questions for the workshop:
    How does one safely carry a 40 lb bag of mulch or compost?

    I feel I am constantly waging a war against the weeds, summer drought, and rabbits. For example, I have planted black eyed susans for the past five years which a rabbit with an insatiable appetite has seemed to completely devoured everytime. I have a compelling urge to shoot the rabbit and make hassenpfeffer out of him. Do I need a mindset change to deal with these frustrations. Do I need to meditate on lovingkindness?

    Is there anything that I can chant while I am gardening? (I don’t care what the neighbors might think.)

    It was good meeting everyone at the class and knowing so many of us are in the same boat, so to speak, with gardening aches and pains. Stop by my blog – – when you get a chance.
