A Team Blog from Mysore

Four thoughtful Ashtangis writing and posting photos in one Mysore blog? Sound too good to be true? Well, it’s not.

If you want to get four perspectives about practicing at AYRI in Mysore, India at once, this is the blog to read.

Anne Finstad, a long-time friend of ours and dedicated Ashtangi, has been writing wonderfully about practice and her trips to Mysore for a few years.

In early 2004, Anne and three students from Yoga Is Youthfulness went to practice at AYRI. Even though I didn’t know any of them at the time, Anne, Einar, Daniel & Khalid gave me a real insight into what Mysore is like through their warm style, informative posts and great pictures. Every new post was greatly anticipated – I was hanging onto their every word.

Here’s are some of my favorite photos from the blog (by Daniel):

Now (January 2006), Anne is back in Mysore and she’s started a fascinating new blog.
