I am nearing the end of a long day in Mysore. I am starting to settle in the groove. Up early, practice, chanting, Sanskrit, and some more chanting. Oh yes and there is always lunch thrown somewhere in all of that. Practice this morning started a bit rough. The more times I come the more I find myself annoyed and less shocked by some of the bad behavior that seems to be rampant. Once I settled into my practice I felt significantly stronger and more focused than just one week ago. My stomach feels much better and my cough is nearly gone. I added up to supta vajrasana with ease rather than the expected effort. The chanting that the shala is now offering is amazing. I have been wanting to work on shanti mantras since last spring but it is very tricky without guidance and now I get to work on them everyday. I do miss home. I miss Mike and the dogs. I miss the dedicated students that help me build something out of nothing. I am busy putting together some sweet spring offerings so keep checking in and if you have any questions please email me. firstname.lastname@example.org
Lakshimsh has been saying, “if yoga students can’t follow the rules….then (little head and hand gesture) who?” I am off to Sanskrit. Big love from the MA ship.
