When you practice and you have teachers who are just human enough to laugh at your random giggles and complains then you know that you truly live.
I love the energy at the shala where I have been practicing for almost seven years now. This space has been a witness of my journey since day 1 of struggling to find my balance in the standing poses until now that I am working on my dwi pada sirshana and the dreaded titibasana sequence.
I have heard a lot of whispers , grunts and moans from the lovely souls who similarly have difficulties in the different asanas. Many times when my drishti was unstable, I have seen people falling, bending, and literally struggling but still smiling. This shala is a witness to everyone’s journey into wholeness.
This space has been my home for a long time. Even if at times I practice at other studios, I am always drawn to this laidback abode.
I have gained friendships here.I have met different teachers both foreign and local.More importantly, I have become a teacher myself. I am forever grateful to this space.
Today I just realize I have come a long way from being that scoliotic woman ino the yogin that I am now.
I am grateful to all my teachers and to my fellow ashtangis for sharing the space and the energy with me.
Thank you too Guruji .
