Acroyoga Workshop With Jenny Hößler

Mar 19 & 20, 11.30 AM
Rs 1,600 for both days

Jenny’s a wonderful teacher who’s worked with us several times in the past, and is in Delhi for a few days in Feb. This is a two day Acroyoga workshop suitable for both beginners and intermediates. Here’s a little about Acroyoga:

Acroyoga blends the wisdom of Yoga, the dynamic power of acrobatics and the loving kindness of the healing arts. These three elements cultivate trust, playfulness and community. In Acroyoga we play with the opposite energies of giving and receiving, flying and being strong.

Delhi Tri Club

Vasu’s a decades-long fitness enthusiast, environmentalist and nutritionist (and a professional comedian!). She’d like to help seed a community of triathletes in Delhi, and has chosen to work with us to start a program which covers triathlon training from a complete athlete perspective.

Sandeep Maity | Climbing Program Version 2.0

We want to introduce Sandeep Maity to you, who has joined the climbing program at Delhi Rock. Ganesh Chhetri remains our head coach and routesetter, and with Sandeep coming on board, we are starting what we hope will become the most comprehensive climbing program in the country.

First, a little about Sandeep:

Sandeep is one of the top three climbers in India currently, and has represented India nationally at both Asian and World championships over the past three years. He’s an accomplished outdoorsman, setting up first ascents in Hampi, Badami, Leh and Ramnagaram. He is one of India’s few climbers who’ve made climbing their profession and sole focus. He spent summer in Leh, will be at Hampi over New Year’s , and plans to go and spend several months climbing in Spain next year. Please give Sandeep a warm welcome (here’s his email address).

Second, a bit about the new program, which consists of four parts and will start on the 1st of December:

Hampi Over New Year’s

It’s time to go to Hampi folks! We thought we’d create a page listing all of the beta we had from last year, so that folks can contribute to it, and help organise their trips this year. We’re working with Project Rockface on this trip, so that climbers going from Delhi have the best information on Hampi we can provide.

We’re also using Facebook to help share information on this year’s trip, so please head over to the event page if you’d like to take part.
