I’ve been in Mysore 4 weeks now and have really settled into the pace of life here which is easygoing.
The number of students here has calmed down a little now. At the beginning of January they received more students then they’d ever had before, around 300 I believe. When I arrived here Guruji’s class was full so I’ve been studying in the main shala with Saraswathi, who is lovely. My brother got here a few days before me so our accommodation was all sorted by the time I arrived. It’s an upstairs apartment about a 7-minute walk to the shala. I met Marcus my first week here and he is off travelling now. Beata, Lizzie and Youngblood are here also. Some of the yogis are staying here till mid-March when the shala will close until May 3rd.
I’ve been trying the various bodywork on offer here, foot massage, Thai massage, Rolfing and even a couple of trips to the chiropractor. We did an anatomy class with Ken the Rolfer during our first couple of weeks, which was a nice change.
Mysore is a good place to catch up on some reading and the time here goes by quickly. We had a really lovely lunch today at a place called India Song House and have been enjoying the food here a lot.
I hope everyone at YIY is well and you can tell Adarsh I tried the Adarshshake in his honour at Shakti house this morning
Looking forward to seeing you all in March.
