Foot massage and Yoga

2 Jul

Hampi central temple:


the past 2 weeks have been a little quiet, my hands hardly touched a foot or back or leg and the yoga mats have been quiet, too. I worked a lot on setting up an online presence that really still needs a  lot, lot, lot of work to fine tune it. Today I finally had a client, 90 minutes Foot massage, which was great. You start wondering what you are doing in the world, when you don’t get to practice / share what you know. The same goes for Art, too. I haven’t made much new work in the past year, taking a back seat, training in Massage and Yoga, taking time out to think through priorities. Health is an amazing gift, the bottom line is: make use of this and preserve it. Everything else will follow suit.

This week there are some bookings for Thai Massage and early morning yoga practice. I am happy to have a new student who would like to practice Mysore Style Ashtanga. This is really special for me, it takes me back to my time with Pattabhi Jois, the founder of Ashtanga Yoga and the wish to return to practice with him. He died 2 years ago and instead of studying with Sharath, his grandson I practiced another Yoga style with a very nice teacher, Bharat Shetty, who runs Yoga India, also in Mysore.  Yoga India follows it’s own sequence which is related to the way Iyengar approaches his teaching. We used no props however. It was great studying here. This is also where I qualified for my Teaching qualification.

But from friday I will be practicing and teaching Mysore Style Ashtanga, self practice. 7.30am, 3-5 mornings a week. I have room for 2 more  students with / without experience, you should be dedicated to attending 3 mornings a week. Practice is done in silence, except for instructions. There is the option of joining the group as the students from the morning batch finish and leave. For this you may arrive at 9.00am, and start practice when a mat becomes available (with isntruction of course). Expect your practice to take between 45 minutes in the beginning to 90 minutes as you progress.
