This one day training is the next step for students of Michael Sitzer, who have already completed the Thai Yoga Bodywork certification program.  This course came out of a request from a student who has been practicing for a few years and is now ready for more. There are so many nuances and additional techniques that can be added into the flow that were just not possible to include in the original training. So, here you have it...The next level!    My idea is to take time in each body position (Supine, Side Lying, Double Leg stretches, Prone, Childs and Seated) and add in additional options for all of these. Some techniques will be brand new and some will simply be additions to the techniques you should already be familiar with.    This is an impromptu course, so it has not been approved for CE hours. Nor is there a manual or DVD. I will allow photos to be taken during the class so you take your own notes with pictures. I would still prefer not having videos recorded.    If time permits, I am open to having class members present their favorite new Thai techniques. I am also interested in having some discussion around people's experience with the work so far and discussing any questions or issues that have arisen.   This class will be limited to 20 people and only for my Thai certified practitioners.   Hope to see you there.  Date: Sunday February 26 - 10-5pm Cost: $95 To avoid Eventbrite fees, I also accept payments by check:   Michael Sitzer 14 Lookout Rd Asheville, NC 28804 contact Michael directly at 828-774-2662 or [email protected] more info at: www.thaiyogatrainings.com If no video appears below, go to: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oss102RRNfI

Asheville Gallery of Arts February show, “For the Love of Art” features the work of three new Gallery artists and beautifully illustrates their love and passion for painting. The show runs from February 1-28 during Gallery hours 11 a.m-6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 1-4 p.m. Sundays. An artists’ reception at the Gallery (82 Patton Avenue in Asheville, across from Pitchard Park) on Friday, February 3, 5-8 p.m. offers a great opportunity to meet the artists. Everyone is cordially invited to stop by. Bee Adams’ paintings immediately strike you with her enthusiastic use of color. Bee states,”My love affair with art adds color and joy and adventure into my life.” She freely uses acrylics, watercolors, and a variety of media. Bee was active in the Denver art scene for over 40 years. After moving to Asheville more than four years ago, she expresses her passion for art in her colorful interpretations of Asheville’s unique architecture and surrounding natural landscapes. Bee also paints with the Asheville Urban Landscape Project and the WNC Plein Air Painters. Megan Richard’s watercolor/water-media paintings depict ethereal mountain vistas, expansive starlit skies, intimate woodland landscapes, and sunlit waters. Her landscapes evoke a quiet sense of time and place. Megan says, “I love the idea of viewers making an emotional connection with my paintings by tapping into their own memories and experiences.” She has a B.A. in Fine Arts from Ohio Wesleyan University and has studied watercolor painting in Maryland and Virginia. Sally Lordeon’s powerful yet serene collection of modern and organic art shows her love of rich textures in all that surrounds us. Sally says, “The opulent textures in all things inspire my paintings. I love when my art triggers the viewer’s own imagery and creative thought.” Sally studied fine arts in Pennsylvania at Chatham University. She moved to Asheville more than 30 years ago and, after a successful career as a technical writer and college textbook author, Sally returned to her first passion—her love of color, form, and the divine pleasure of texture. As well as the paintings of the three artists, those of the other 28 Gallery members are on display and for sale through the month of February. For further information about this show, call the Asheville Gallery of Art at (828) 251-5796, visit the Gallery website at www.ashevillegallery-of-art.com or go to the Gallery Facebook page.

Lowland Hum: NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert Lowland Hum - Palm Lines [Official Music Video] In a moment awash in guy/girl duos, anthemic arena-folk-pop bands, and presidential debates producing anxiety levels previously achieved only by haunted drive-in theaters screening Jerry Springer reruns at ear-splitting volume, Lowland Hum is a breath of fresh air. Daniel and Lauren invite their listeners to share in an intimate and vulnerable space they have created together. In the live setting, the duo offers an immersive experience of thoughtful songcraft interspersed with audience Q&A and extemporaneous songs about the day's happenings. Their recordings take listeners on a journey through relatable, imagistic poetry exploring themes of memory, longing, confession and identity, and drawing attention to the often unnoticed resonance of the everyday.

Based in Charlottesville, Virginia, Lowland Hum is husband/wife team Daniel and Lauren Goans. Together they are a prolific, two-person creative factory. They write, arrange and produce all of their own music, and have honed a cohesive visual arts aesthetic to match the hushed simplicity of their sound.

The duo's beginning starts with Daniel, a courageous dreamer, songwriter and producer. Daniel and Lauren met in North Carolina in 2009 when he crashed a party at her apartment. The next year, Daniel asked Lauren to design the album art for a solo record he was working on. He also invited Lauren to sing harmony on one of tracks. This was Lauren's first experience with recording, and what started out as a singular guest appearance morphed into Lauren's voice being added to about half of the album.

Initially, Lauren performed with Daniel, singing harmonies on songs he had written, but within a year or so, she was cowriting and arranging on virtually all of the material. Lowland Hum formed officially in 2012, a few months after the two were married and their collaboration deepened. In the years following the release of their critically acclaimed debut Native Air (2013), the duo has toured the country almost nonstop. In 2014 they followed up their debut with Four Sisters, a conceptual EP and video series, and then, in 2015, they released their eponymous sophomore full-length album, garnering a slew of praise, including an NPR First Listen. Lowland Hum has performed in diverse settings all over the country ranging from large folk festivals and theaters to living rooms and gardens.

Lauren's background in visual art asserts itself in the duo's collaboration significantly. She has created all of the band's artwork and design as well as several transportable installation pieces that augmented the band's live performances. She is also responsible for an impressive collection of music videos often using found footage from public domain archives. Over the years, Lauren has designed five editions of handmade lyric books that the duo passes out to audiences so they can read or sing along as the moment suits.

Lowland Hum's songs have been described as poetic and evocative, and their arrangements minimal, hushed and dynamic. They continue to attract a growing body of listeners around the world. Daniel and Lauren spent the summer of 2016 creating their third full-length album in a friend's attic. The album, Thin, is due out on February 10, 2017, and is their "deepest collaboration to date" according to the band. They will support the release on with a nationwide tour in the first half of 2017.

North Carolina — perhaps more than any other state in the Union — has been transformed by the new and growing tidal wave of political spending. Zach Galifianakis, the comic star of “The Hangover” movies, travels back to his home state to investigate how North Carolina has become a bellwether for how the money of a few has come to dominate our democracy. Galifianakis investigates allegations that the current state government was put in power by moneyed interests and has thus carried out a program that only benefits its backers: cuts to education, healthcare spending and environmental protection; lowering of taxes for the wealthy and corporations; and the passage of laws designed to roll back access to the ballot.
