Strike a Pose 

Wednesday, Jan 11 2012
What is your “true core”? How do you find it? Can we use the same modern equipment that spews so much distraction to help reach inner calm and stillness? If you practice or teach yoga, you might already have solid ideas on these topics. If you don’t, they might be new to you. Regardless, the Yoga Journal Conference has something to offer. The five-day conference includes panel discussions as well as more than 100 classes and workshops. On the advanced end, there’s a workshop that lasts two days (Jan. 12-13) called the Business of Yoga. There are several all-day intensive sessions with yoga masters. On the more conceptual end is a class led by local instructor Jane Austin (Saturday at 1 p.m., free and open to anyone) that helps students identify and find that true core through breathing and movement. Rodney Yee, the so-called “yogi to the stars,” gives the keynote address (Saturday at 1:30 p.m., also free) that takes up the issue of whether American healthcare could be improved by adopting an approach of mind and body fitness. Registration options include the whole conference, day passes, and drop-ins.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
