I know that I have taken a few days off from writing, but I have had some things on my mind that I don’t think were blog appropriate. The end of last week was really hard. I wasn’t sleeping because I was feeling very vulnerable about my place at home. It felt as if I was unaware of changes that I would otherwise be made aware of. Anyway, you gotta get over all that. I am here so I need to fully commit to being here and as my friend Mary told me, “don’t worry, Guruji will take care of everything.”
Saturday was an off day from asana, but my turbo Sanskrit class met and it feels like there should be a level between one and two. I think I need a level one and half. I am managing, while struggling and learning a whole bunch.
Sunday I had another Sanskrit lesson, I know turbo charged, and then conference. What an experience. Listening to Sharath speak about yoga, and so skillfully answer or not answer questions humbles and awes me. I will be forever grateful for that experience. I made the choice to not take notes and I am still processing the gems. More on that later.
Big News. Just as I wrote an email to my teacher back home saying that I think Sharath had forgotten about me. Today I am starting my back bends and I hear from across the room “Krounchasana, you do krounchasana.” He didn’t forget about me at all! So, I received another pose and a new start time 7am!
I am very happy, and very full from a North Indian Thali.
