Last Practice in Mysore - 13 Sept

Today is my last day in Mysore and I had a great led class with Saraswathi. Practice was good - my ribs did not bother me too much. Because it was a led class, I didn't focus on slow breathes, instead I focused on Saraswathi's count. Well, thank goodness, her count was not slow or I would have passed out in Uth Pluthi.

It's has been special coming here to practice. At the same time, I'm looking forward to heading back to Malaysia, and taking back a bit of Mysore with me.

Hi there, I just found your blog and new to Mysore. I wonder how did it happen that you only attend Saraswati class and not Sharath's? Did you choose the way it was?

Hi. Before I left for Mysore, I chosed to practice with Saraswathi because I could only spend 2 weeks there. Now, with benefit of hindsight, practicing and learning from her has been perfect. Saraswathi is a great and encouraging teacher and has always helped with the asanas I'm struggling with.

I hope I've answered your question. If u need more detaiils, u can email me at earnchin(at)gmail(dot)com

I live in KL. I actually practice at a studio in SS2. . They have ashtanga classes on Fridays and Sundays.

There is a group of Ashtangis who do self practice every morning in a studio by the swimming pool of the Westin hotel. If you are interested, let me know and I'll let some of them know.

thanks! I love that about ashtanga, practicing all over the world.

SS2 is doable. Is the westin near the highway from section 16 to TTDI? (my geography of PJ/KL is quite vague)

No no that's Eastin hotel that's near the highway between s16 and TTDI. The Westin hotel is next to Marriot hotel on Jalan Bukit Bintang. The studio is on the same level as the gym and swimming pool. And you can use the showers there! Very posh.
