Today marks the end of my fourth practice week here in Mysore. The last practice of the week is always Led Primary series. Sharath used to teach two classes but since people have been leaving he has combined us into one, starting at 4:30 AM shala time (4:15 real time!).
Everyone waits in front of the shala gate about 45-60 minutes prior to practice time in order to get into the room to get a prime spot. Somehow I was the first one there this morning - CRAZY! My favorite part was being able to practice with both Rachel and Erik.
Don't forget to leave your shoes outside the door.
Imagine this room filled with approximately 75 yoga mats and bodies breathing with sound. As much as I hate being away from my family and friends, I am so happy to be able to practice here. It is definitely something very special that I will treasure for the rest of my life, whether I am able to return or not. I want to savor every last bit of the remaining 15 practices I have left!
