I have been practicing Mysore for quite some time now, after trying all kinds of yoga. I like Mysore because I can practice as early as 4:30 am. My practice means so much to me. I started doing yoga as merely exercise and little by little it has transformed into an emotional, physical, and spiritual practice.
My practice has really challenged me, especially when it comes to Marichyasana D. It has taken me what it feels like a lifetime to figure it out. Practice paid off and finally one day I got it, thanks to the encouragement of my instructors, tips from my yoga mates, my daily practice, and changes in my daily life (I have to confess that losing a pound here and there really helps). I am so proud of myself for showing up everyday on my mat.
