This week of yoga and art, creativity and renewal, is set in the gorgeous and harmonious embrace of the Costa Rican Rainforest!
His works include the Yoga Prison Project teaching yoga in San Quentin Penitentiary to lifetime inmates, establishing free food kitchens around the United States, and direct actions with EarthFirst by sitting in old growth redwoods for months at a time without coming down to prevent loggers from deforesting thousands of square miles of pristine rain forest.
Trip’s greatest hope is to share with you the asanas and warmth he has practiced and shared living throughout India, working in various ashrams, studying in shalas around Europe and North America under many humbling and inspiring teachers, and living a life of constant travel and devotion.
He is very grateful to his teachers Dhanurdhara Swami, Dharma Mittra, Balu Thevar, and Adam Sobel.
