Namaste homies! Since I last posted Alysa and I have been happily camped in Rishikesh: the yoga capital of the world as the slogan goes. And we have been making that slogan our mantra. Speaking of mantras, we did a 7-day introductory ashram course where on a daily basis we did 4 hours of yoga, 2 hours of meditating, a ‘contemplative’ walk, ate endless chapatis and adhered to a 7-hour silence period. What a valuable experience! I feel totally refreshed, centered and grateful for having learned so much about the yoga way of life. I must say, however, that we are ready to move on to our next spot: Varanassi. We will be celebrating Diwali, the Hindu new year, in India’s most sacred city. We might have to stay up past 10pm for this one!
Below, enjoy some pics I got in between yoga sessions and thalis.
