So proud of all the Ashtanga practitioners who turned up in full force to practice with Guruji, @sharathjoisr this morning. When I first started Ashtanga Yoga and went to Mysore, it was not considered a cool practice by Indians ,was considered only for the weak, sick or old.. and there was hardly any Indians practicing, and when I told my family back then in 2001 that I wanted to be a yoga teacher, they thought I had gone mad!!!!.. Back then in Mysore there were mostly westerners practicing and a handful of Indians. This morning to see a room full of enthusiastic Indian practitioners in the room, practicing with full gusto, made me so emotional.❤️😍 . Hope the numbers keep increasing.💪🏽🇮🇳 Once again all you guys who showed up this morning, I’m proud of you, you guys did a great job!!!!👍🏼❤️🙏🏻 . See you once again on the mat tomorrow morning.🔱💪🏽🕉 . Thx once again to @truebayindia for making this happen.
