Being free

What can be better than freedom?

To wear a dress you like

The sun melting you into a field of pink flowers

To wear a confident smile

and laugh and swing all day long, like a child

To spin yourself into losing your sense of direction

To kiss the man you like

To get lost in time

surrendering to your thoughts and being completely in charge

Enjoying each wave, each emotion, each beam of light.

What can be more than freedom?

“Any strange action can be justified if you are a foreigner”

Have you ever felt an urge of touching the nose of someone riding on the bus with you? Or screaming in the street or skipping all the way to work?

Practicing yoga in Mysore with Saraswathi – Life is a daring adventure or nothing at all (Part 2)

About my trip to India to study ashtanga yoga, where I found amazing friends and an Indian family, was happy all the time, discovered the best food in the world, and got a kick in the ass to continue my self-development. Part 2

 

The rules and KPJAYI are quite strict. You need to sign up within 2-3 month before coming, but not earlier or sooner than a month, you need to arrive and register at a certain time before beginning practice, and you are not supposed to practice with any other teacher but your teacher (Saraswati or Sharath), otherwise the school has a right to kick you out. I have to say I did not know much about the school or teachers when I came, except for the fact that Pattabhi Jois was the one who started making yoga popular all over the world, which, I thought, was pretty cool and I liked the method, that is why I came.
