Philippe, have you met this person who has commented thoughtfully on your post about starting a Mysore-style Ashtanga program?
In Bindifry’s comment on her Ashtanga set, she explains Ashtanga, and includes this important bit:
PLEASE do NOT attempt these postures without proper supervision.
Do your practice and all is coming.
- Sri K. Pattabhis Jois
…afterwards we decided to hire an omni bus and go to wagha border-the border of pakistan and india-to watch the border guards do their competetive good natured dance. this is done daily at sunrise and sunset. the scene is very much like a high school pep ralley. the guards open the border gates and they do a marching kick dance that is reminiscent of john cleese’s “silly walk” from monty python. this was the most fun i have ever had in india and i went back to my hotel unable to wipe the smile off my face.
Thank you, Bindifry (aka Lisa Hill)! And best wishes on your travels.
