Start the new year by furthering your self-development and yoga education with Max Strom. If you love proven methods for living a happier, calmer life, and enjoy an accessible, intelligent yoga practice, this weekend is exactly what you need to start your year off right.
On January 15-17, we’re hosting Max for a four part series of seminars that will explore a transformational breath practice and gentle yoga, self-healing through strong vinyasa practice, and lectures and writing workshops inspired by his book: There is No App for Happiness – How to Avoid a Near-Life Experience.
Read on for praise for There is No App for Happiness, and learn more about Max’s weekend in Ottawa here.
In There Is No App For Happiness Max focuses on the many methods we are employing daily to isolate ourselves further from each other, and compares the effects of these trends to a kind of mass autism. Note he is not a Luddite: he offers examples of the ways in which our technology assists us. Yet there are dangers and warning signs, and with the fervor of a poet/prophet he rings the alarm… yet not without humor; for example he implores us to become more self-aware before our devices surpass us in that respect. But this clarion cry is not all there is here, there are also practical passages about how to experience better quality sleep, how to breathe consciously, what yoga is about. He gives the reader exercises, so it’s not just a passive experience. I always find his writing warm yet cogent. — Ivan Nahem, founder + editor of Yoga Teacher Magazine
