And it’s just as exciting and inspiring to see how things are falling into place for the 2011 Texas Yoga Conference, which will be held February 25 – 27, 2011, at the lovely University of St. Thomas – Jerabeck Athletic Center – in Houston, Texas.

Growing up with backyard martial arts and the realness of street fighting in the rural delta region of Northern California, juxtaposed with the influence of my grandfather’s Gung-Fu practice and incense burning rituals, and formal dojang [Korean martial arts school] training; with my Buddhist master, in San Francisco’s Chinatown and Japan Town, I was never a stranger to the intuitive reflexes and highs associated with physicality. These early memories and experiences led me to my own life-long pursuit of the dynamic practices of Astanga Vinyasa [eight limbs of flowing motion] yoga and Kuk Sool Won [traditional Korean Buddhist] martial arts. Forming such a foundation in my youth and teenage years, I practiced the way of the sword, and You Won Hwa [flowing circular harmony] while perfecting my asanas [postural stances] and ‘floating’ [advanced aerial arm balancing] techniques. I learned the art of the dual-edged path, cultivating both disciplines simultaneously throughout my twenties.
