It's been radio silence on the blog for a bit... I've been writing quite a lot actually, just not here, and not about yoga. Although really, it's all about yoga as I can no longer separate "the yoga" from "the anything else". ...so really it's just that the writing has stayed in the notebook, perhaps percolating for later public consumption.
Amidst the writing and the working has been some future schedule navigation. I'm in a perpetual process of evolving my time to be spent in increasing bouts on things that I find nourishing and in decreasing blocks on things that I don't.
In that vein, I'm headed to Mysore this spring. I have confirmation from the shala, plane ticket purchased, visa in hand, and have booked a place to stay. First practice, barring any flight delays, is Feb. 11. I'm there through March 10. If our Mysore travels will overlap at some point, please get in touch.
The trip has been several years in the making and the fact that the planning has finally gotten this far, still seems unreal. I've been doing this practice for awhile now, nearly 12 years. Although I feel a certain amount of trepidation, knowing that discomfort is always a part of anything meaningful, I still feel there is nothing more exciting than the thought of spending a month having my practice shaken down to the fundamentals, so that I might find out what I'm really standing on.
