After a long travel day or two, I landed in Mysore. Spent the day yesterday trying to get my bearings. I had a little trouble finding where to eat, that is always a big concern of mine. I also didn't sleep well, that never happens. I know I shouldn't think this way, but my schedule is almost completely upside down
I registered at the Shala yesterday and was told to show up at 6am for a led class. There will be led classes all week. It was packed, literally mat to mat.
As soon as I started practicing, my other issues (eating and sleeping and not knowing what to expect) melted away. There was an incredible softness to my practice. Maybe 90 people breathing together had something to do with it. Amazing.
I was glad that I was allowed to do the whole series, but I will try and not be attached.
