Dear yogis, yoginis and friends,
Namaste and a happy and joyful spring to all.
It has been a long time since my last newsletter.
Every year I
say that I won't do so much travelling but try to find more time for my
yoga practice and more reading, but somehow I find myself travelling just as much.
Teaching my yoga holidays brings lots of joy and the opportunity to
share and to get to know some of you better. I am also blessed with a big
family with my sisters spread around the world.
All of which requires travelling which makes me realise that I love it really.
February, all this was rewarded with yet another fantastic yoga holiday
in Goa, we were at Ashiyana again and had a fabulous time as always. Every year
gets better and better, all thanks to you!
Yoga is not only what we practice on the yoga mat but also how we apply this to our lives.
Sharing, respecting, loving, communicating, enjoying each other's company, learning, caring and much much more......
must purge ourselves before finding faults in others. When we see a
mistake in someone else, we should try to find if we are making the same
This is the way to make judgment and to turn
it into improvement. We should not look at others' bodies with envy or
superiority. Never compare with others. Each one's capacities are a
function of his or her internal strength.
Know your capacities and continually improve upon them." B.K.S. Iyengar, Light on Life
A month after we came back from Goa, most of us met for an Indian dinner yoga reunion. I would like to thank Rebecca Hossack for inviting the group to have papadums and prosecco at her art gallery beforehand. Also to Courtney and Ted who, despite not being able to come all the way from Washington DC., managed to be with us in spirit by paying for our drinks at the restaurant. Honestly it is wonderful to feel part of such a marvellous group of yogis and yoginis !!!!
