YJ Conf NYC report part 1

Hi everyone this is Johnny Sheershasana reporting live from the Yoga Journal Conference at the Hilton in New York City.  

I’ve actually heard quite a few teachers actually say ‘Johnny’ whilst instructing Janu Sirsasana, and since I heard Aadil Palkhivala say it like ‘janoo’ this morning I’m inclined to reckon that’s the proper form. Anyway, I like the punk rock yoga name, but it’s a joke.

Today I went to the Handle With Care panel discussion with Jason Crandell, Judith Hanson Lasater, Leslie Kaminoff and Charity Ferreira:

Avoiding Sorrow

So (what seems like) a thousand years ago when I was working at the New York Stock Exchange, I started getting a sharp pain in the back of my mouth one afternoon. I thought maybe it was strep throat. At that time we had medical services in the building, so I went down a few floors and after a while I was in the office of this rather odd doctor, we’ll call him Dr. Silver. The office was pretty dark, and I was put in mind of rumors that the NYSE docs were rejects from other practices. Shady guys. But I thought I’d give him a shot, no pun intended; it was immediate and cheaper onsite.
