It is a long and winding drive up into the hills from the wine-country of Calistoga to Harbin's hidden valley. Once there the peace and beauty began to work its magic again as I slipped into those warm and healing waters. It seems to be one of those rare places where the plants, the trees and the animals live in harmony with humans. The deer and wild turkeys like us wander around the property eating, resting and connecting with each other with ease and a simple reverence for life.
Victor taught a day for men and I dived into the feminine with a great crowd of women! We moved and danced and sank deep into our inner worlds to heal and find back long hidden parts of ourselves.
Our first stop was Asheville where we celebrated Victor's Uncle Jaap's 100th birthday. Here he is with Victor and our Birthday cards. What a wonderful man! We dined at a great restaurant and he entertained us all!
Even the weather was refreshing during these wonderful four days in which our friendship became the binding force to shedding new light onto the practice of yoga, in which the breath became the leading force by which we traveled into our inner world. With many thanks to Rama Jyoti Vernon for connecting all of us with the knowledge from the Vedas. A great compliment to our friends Zoreh and Charlie, who went out of their way to make this event a great success!
This is the familiar view that I have seen for many years and now that the leaves have fallen and Mark and Carrie are in the process of selling their house, this is my goodbye to this house also! Thank you Mark for your work to get this course up and running. I really did enjoy seeing all the people that came to your studio....With love, Victor.

We did get a feedback about how helpful it seems to be if you have the chance to be in a longer workshop from the beginning to the end. It gives one a chance to get deep inside and after getting a more clear vision of the internal flow of energy, the active practice makes much more sense....
We are grateful that Patricia and her great helpers were once again there to give us all a chance to be together for a 5 day course. Thank you Patricia and Andrew for hosting us!!!
In Oakland we were received in the beautiful yoga center Namaste and we want to thank Kimberly for the great job in creating the center and her organizing of this event, giving us the chance to meet many of our good old friends...
We are so happy to have the chance to be together with Barbara and Andrei in their cozy Berkeley home and the way they spoiled us with their warm welcoming support. LOVE, Angela and Victor.
My grateful thanks for this sweet experience goes to Melissa Middlebrook for getting us all into this wonderful yoga place so that all the animals that inspire our teaching could transform into new beings that supported our internal openings of endless exploration. The udderly happy cowdog !

It is Sunday afternoon and I have closed my yoga course here in this excellent warm weather, while the trees are changing colour by the day. I would like to thank my dear friend Stan Andrzejewski for all the work he took upon himself to get me here and want to thank Jean for all her administrative input ,having it run smoothly.
The doors into the yoga event in Chapel Hill were once again opened wide by Molly Drake and with great assistance from all people that turned up to create this feeling of celebration. Thank you Molly, Jock,Bev and Bernd for all your input.
