Here is an interview I had with Pino Rizzi who visited Mind Body Flow Yoga to lead a three day workshop we called “A Weekend with Pino Rizzi”. Pino is a certified Baptiste instructor and has attended Baptiste level 1, level 2, and level 3 training.

This month Mind Body Flow Yoga newsletter’s featured student is Nicole Peradotto. She is going to demonstrate Running Man aka (Eka Pada Koundinyasana II). This is an arm balancing pose.

My experience at Level Two can be summed up in two words, “Eye opening.” The underlying theme of the week was, “Defy the lie.” The lie being the thing that you tell yourself, which prevents you from living your fullest, happiest, most authentic life. “The lie” can be anything from, “I’m fat,” “I’m not good enough,” “I’m not worthy,” “I’m not lovable,” to “I’m a failure.”
