Greetings From India

A nagalinga flower on the tree in front of KYM. This flower symbolizes Ādiśeṣa, a mythical snake upon whose coiled body Vishnu and Lakshmi rested, and who held the universe on his head. This imagery is an analogy for the concepts of sthiram and sukham, stability and comfort. Ādiśeṣa needed to provide a safe and comfortable resting place for Vishnu and Lakshmi while also being stable and securely supporting the universe. Beautiful story, and beautiful flower, would you agree?

Hello friend!

I'm wrapping up my second week at my training course in India, and it's going really well so far. Over the past couple of weeks, I've realized that I've grown in the past year since I completed the previous course. I'm experiencing this course in a different way, with more patience and peacefulness knowing that I don't need to understand every detail RIGHT NOW; rather, the teachings will reveal themselves over time when I'm experienced and knowledgable enough to understand them.

I am learning a lot of great things here that I can't wait to bring back to The Yoga Room, for both the teachers and the students. For example, we're learning even more about Ayurveda, I've learned how to read a person's pulse to determine their Ayurvedic dōṣa (constitution), and I've learned how to work with different issues of the spine from a yoga therapy perspective. At some point in the future, I'll begin offering Yoga Therapy for people who would like to use the tools of yoga to address any issues that are affecting their health. Please stay tuned for that.

I'm thinking of you from the other side of the planet and I hope your yoga practice is going well. If you have any doubt, please don't hesitate to send me a note. I always love hearing from you.

See you soon!
