The end of this two-month trip to Mysore is in sight. A little over a week left. Nearing the end of such an experience always brings up mixed emotions. On one hand I love practising under Sharathji so much, it’s a sad feeling having to leave. On the other hand, I do look forward to be in my home community again, practising and teaching at our wonderful Ashtanga Yoga Antwerp shala with all the inspiring people there. I miss them.
With every trip to KPJAYI I find the deepening of the practice in that energy, thoughts and emotions seem to fluctuate a bit less. There are still highs and lows, but not as extreme. At times I still need to catch my breath in asana practice, but there’s no more run-over-by-a-truck feeling after. Thoughts still come sometimes when I’m on the mat, but they are less judgmental (towards myself and the world) than before. Resistance is often still there when I put myself to chanting, but if I don’t beat myself up over skipping a day. Then it flows more when I do get to it.
I feel so much gratitude towards the students and sponsors who helped funding this journey. There’s so much grace in the attitudes of the people of India. And all off the fellow practitioners are so uplifting to be around. What can I say but THANK YOU.🙏🏽 And now to enjoy the last week of practices, including 2 led primary, 2 led intermediate and 3 Mysore-style classes. @ayanr.be @jusjusbe @fitopia_edegem @yogashop.nl @mandukaeurope @threebyoneeu
