Another wonderful two weeks of Ashtanga Mysore style with Maria Boox. Many of the group had been before so were spontaneously relaxed and at home on arrival.The newbies quickly followed suit.
Pleasingly intense yet friendly Mysore mornings had everyone sweating and getting fully involved with their practice, both the ebbs and the flows. Maria was there to support and encourage, physically and mentally, through the highs and the more challenging moments.
The afternoon classes were softer. There was one Yin Yoga afternoon and others focusing on philosophy, technique and pranayama. Those that wanted got their own pranayama sequence prescribed to take home with them. Guests enjoyed a couple of evenings of enchanting trataka, traditional candle meditation in the soft, dusky air.
