Interview with David Keil: Part 1

A bonus this week!

While my teacher (David Keil) was here this week, I spent a little time interviewing him on why we do this Mysore style practice anyway. There are lots of rumors flying around out there about what Mysore practice is and what it is for. I had a lot of fun interviewing David and digging in to some of those topics.

Enjoy!...and we would love to hear your feedback on the interview. :)
Parts 1 of our interview is below. Parts 2 & 3 will be posted separately.


  1. Interesting discussion! I started with led, then went led + Mysore, then finally got the courage to go all Mysore: because to me led = comfort, security, assistance; Mysore = unknown, unsure, unable, constantly needing assistance - or so it seemed to me as a newbie.

    But that is not the case for others. I watch new students come into your Mysore class Christine and it is a totally different approach. You give them what they can handle, have them repeat it, and they get it. And remember it for next time.

    Two means to an end, guess it depends on how you started, starting is the important part, but Mysore is definitely the goal 8-)

  2. I agree Bob. Starting is the important part. Hopefully the interview helps spread the idea that Mysore class need not be intimidating, but can be supportive and fun!
