What to say?

This mornings practice was long and hot. Today if you have been given any Intermediate series you added on after primary. I have been looking forward to working on Intermediate here and today as I finished up Primary I kept practicing and practiced up to ustrasana and then I started my back bending section. When I returned back to my room, all of this happened before 6am, I just crashed hard. Talk about taking a savasana!

I have so many mixed emotions about being here. I love the practice and everyday when I go to philosophy and chanting I feel that I am exactly where I should be. I can feel that this trip is restoring my love of practice and igniting my passion for teaching and that I should work harder to find more opportunities to teach back home. I am amazed by the layers of learning that I experience with each practice. I am amazed by the ability to sit with myself and some very uncomfortable moments and remain still in my mind. I remembered today when I was on the Wake Up Yoga pilgrimage in India at Akbar’s tomb there were many bees and our guide directed us to just “be still” and we would be ok.

I wish I had more words today…..maybe tomorrow. Sending my love from here to wherever you are.
