    i listened to Phish before class and sometimes after.

    Like kaya says, it can give fire and energy. But there were many times after a class that I was so yogi high/yogi brain that anything but silence would have been a shack to the system

    You remember when Dee Brown pumped uP his Pumps during the dunk contest at the 91 all star game? Pimp steez.

    my teacher mixes in between 0-3 tracks in an hour and half session

    very much flow and rhythm to her selections, lots of quite stuff, chanting, and proper according to dude – world stuff

  4. EL Duderino Says:

    I do. I also remember Reggie Lewis 🙁

  5. jdub Says:

    This era of Phish has got more of a jazz flavor than ever. It seems each era has a single style that permeates the music. I’ve been curious as to what style would be distinctly 3.1 and jazz is what I think of. I describe 3.1 as starting at the Greek but will surely peak in ’11 with some mind numbingly intricate jams. Much like the cowfunk started in earnest on 10/31/96 and peaked in fall/winter ’97, 3.1 started on 8/5/10 and will peak next fall.

    Getting ahead of myself a bit but jams like Greek Simple and Light, Augusta Reba, Providence R n R, AC Stash, Woosta 7-below and Hood, and MSG Sand, Twist, Ghost, and Simple have me so damn Pumped for this year.

  6. jdub Says:

    Reggie Lewis, so sad. Dee Brown made a career out of that slam dunk contest. That man could jump but he was lousy pro in my book.

    A serious yogi wouldn’t stoop to teaching a middle aged non-Hindu Westerner.

    So it goes both ways.

    yeah, today’s board gave new meaning to the word potty mouth 😉 . . . and then, like a teacher to his students, MrMiner calls us out and demands that we elevate! had we had a new post from our master, us fLEGIONNAIRES would probably not have turned into 3 year olds . . . just sayin’ MrMiner . . . we need your posts to keep us stimulated and moving forward . . . otherwise, we will generally resort to childish behavior . . . oh, who am i kidding, we’d have done it anywayz 🙂

    @Dude, yoga has the same purpose as Thai Chi although a different focus. The main difference being yoga is more about building physical strength while Thai Chi has a martial application. But each has so many different approaches and uses. I have only played Thai Chi to low key meditative music. I’m not sure Phish would quiet me enough.

    “A serious yogi wouldn’t stoop to teaching a middle aged non-Hindu Westerner.”-Plord

    That’s BS right there. The owner and director of Moksha mentor/yogi master is/lives India… goes there every year for a 3 month serious training a sabbatical

    Any good teacher has made the journey and lived/practiced in India and usually taught by one as well.

    Not sure where you got that PLord

  11. butter Says:

    by dude listing his yoga resume, he thinks we are supposed to believe him on what “Serious Yogi’s” would and wouldn’t spin in class

    you might have done a lot of yoga @dude, but something tells me its like the tool with the gaudy show #’s that thinks he knows about Phish

    and shit if i’m going to let you decide what a good yoga teacher is

    and the last thing, i’m going to participate in is an argument about yoga

    Whateves Butterz

    Keep your head burried in the sand for all I care!

    You’ve made your declaration, I get it. But don’t discount when you don’t know what your talkin about…

    Outa’ here!
    Good Night

  13. jdub Says:

    There is no one way to do anything.

  14. butter Says:

    you don’t know shit and i don’t either


  15. Mr.Miner Says:

    @ Rob. That’s a legit Chinese sneaker company

  16. phoammhead Says:

    easy fellas – elevate! oh, that’s MrM’s job

    still, easy boyz – damn!

    I sure do. I’m a celtics fan…that little man was bad ass!

  18. phoammhead Says:


    elevate – don’t bring up shit again! 😉

  19. Mr.Miner Says:

    guess i need to write something for tomorrow. geez.

  21. butter Says:

    anyone want to talk about shit

  22. butter Says:

    how about the staccato jamming

  23. halcyon Says:

    When the practitioner is firmly established in the practice of the truth, his words become so potent that whatever he says comes to realization.

  24. willowed Says:

    I just listened to the Woosta Hood again (ok, I get it, I need to step away from it) when I was on the treadmill. there’s this part where Trza is plucking away and Mike stops playing his bass (he must be over at his stack switching something up) for about 10 seconds. then he comes over the top of Trza’s notes with this new bass lick. I got goose pimples and allmost fell off the track.

    It was special!!

  25. butter Says:
