Yoga, Yoga, Yoga

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.

About heremethere

Last October Alysa and I were gchatting about wanting to do something with our lives-- she was living in Toronto and, although living it up and loving the city, was in need for a change. And I was in Los Angeles working on a very stressful campaign feeling like I was getting farther and farther from who I am. So we started gchatting about going on a long trip. To South America, maybe. To Europe, probably not. To Asia, bingo! And what do you know, we actually are doing it! So here we are, traveling around (at least this is what we set out thinking) India, Nepal, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand and Sri Lanka. Let's see where we end up...
