Mysore Class - 21 Sept

Went to a Mysore class at the yoga studio I go to in Malaysia. Someone complimented me on my breathing after class was over. Wahoo! I take what I can get. Though, I'm not sure whether it was because I was focusing on deep breathes to stretch the muscle that was bothering me in the ribs or whether my breathing has improved because of the regular practice in Mysore. But, hey - for a stiff guy, any compliment you will take.

Manoj (my teacher) managed to bind me quite comfortably in Marichyasana D on the right side. I'm still working on the left side. It's coming. Patience, patience. I think my back bend has improved - I'm not so exhausted after the 3 back bends. Again, I could be just stronger from the regular practice. Feels great to be back and had an enjoyable practice.

Memories of Mysore are still fresh in my mind, which is good. They will help me with my self practice.

When I travel back to Malaysia I would like to know the location of this ashtanga studio in order to practice there. Also, is there a web site for the studio?
Terima Kaseh,

Hi Lars. Great to hear from you. My post has a link to the web site, just click on "yoga studio"; or you can type www.manasa-yoga.com. It is not a dedicated ashtanga studio - ashtanga days are on Fridays and Sundays.

Hope to catch up with you bila awak datang di Malaysia.

Sekian, terima kasih.
