Yoga for lazy people

Lazy to go for a yoga class but need a good stretch? Thai massage is something you may like. They even call it “Thai yoga massage” in the west to attract customers.

What?

In my first class of Thai massage about three years ago, I learnt that it can be considered yoga for lazy people. What the teacher actually meant is that you do not need to put much effort into it, but you get a good stretch just like in yoga.  Continue reading “Yoga for lazy people”

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.
