… or as I like to fondly remember it #kobstolon2017. It started of pretty intensely in Copenhagen as Sharath kept us in long holds of Asana state while he went around “culling” people from 2nd Series.  For a stiff back dude like myself 20 breaths in the Salabhasanas was truly a test of mind over body!!

My Maun Experience – December 2016

I got invited (somehow) to join in on a session for school children at Maun Stadium in Maun, Botswana featuring 400M World Champion Amantle Montsho, 800 Olympic Silver Medallist Nijel Amos and International Footballer Dipsy Selolwane.  I was pretty nervous being alongside these illustrious athletes but it turned out children love Ashtanga. Especially the boys aged 10 – 14.  Maybe all those stories about the Yoga Tradition of the Mysore Palace had something after all!!
