John and Stef began their 2011 Russia Tour on April 25th in Barnaul, Siberia. This is their third trip in as many years, and so were very happy to see the progress from continued practice. The twelve day program consisted of 5-day Level 1 and Level 2 intensives, focusing on each of the main series, and weekend workshops for students and teachers of all levels.
John and Stef were happy to finally visit Barnaul when the river was flowing! The spring weather and spring green was wonderful.
Students and teachers enjoyed Partner Stretch, Prana Vidya and TY flows.
Because of their commitment to their level 1 practice, teachers were able to flow to Level 2 with grace and focus.
A mix of students, old and new, enjoyed the benefits of a deep practice.
