India Part Eleven: Interview with Director of Yoga Programs/Shri Jasnath Asan

This was one of the two videos I watched before I left for India.  I did not need to see more, I was going there; I wanted to meet Shreejan Sita.   

An interview with the director of Yoga Programs, Shreejan Sita (45 minutes "My interview with Sherry about Yoga proved to be enlightening. She exceeded my expectations in knowledge and helped me gain a higher perspective of Yoga and its importance in our everyday lives.)". I agree one hundred percent, yoga is for everyday in 24/7 interconnected 21st century. 

Om Namaste, 
Birgit

India Part Ten: From Reading to Experiencing: Om The Universal Sound Led by Gurujii Surjanath

By exposing ourselves to and/or chanting OM, the universal sound we are taken back to rishis uttering these words after coming out of deep meditation (Om is often compared to Amen, Shalom, Salaam), anyone can benefit from these sounds.   Yoga is for anyone.  It is a spiritual practice anyone can benefit from. 

3 Oms led by Gurujii Surajnathour wonderful host (please check previous posts related to my trip to India last November) and spiritual leader of Shri Jasnath Asan (ashram) since 2001 but initiated into the tradition at age six.   Please om along or just enjoy.    

Enjoy,
Om Namaste, 
Birgit

India Part Nine: A warm Welcome, Delicious Food, and Lucid Dream

After one more train, bus, tuktuk, I was exhausted but in a good way when Arve and I reached the ashram Sunday morning, November 6, 2015 after more than forty hours of traveling since arrival in Delhi with a few naps, delicious meals, and chais in between. 

I wanted to describe it a bit more in detail here, but after visiting the ashram website, I decided to welcome you without further delay to Shri Jasnath Asan (ashram) where the focus is on the irrevocable bond between man and nature.

Double Handed no Pressure Hand Reflexology



A few weeks ago, waiting for dinner to arrive at one of our favorite Middle Eastern restaurants, Regal received a hand reflexology session from me.

On the way there I told him about an upcoming event and wanted to show him something and get feedback.  It also can not hurt to rebalance the body to prepare for dinner.

He was game for the following which was new to him:
- double handed hand reflexology, meaning I was working mostly on both hands at the same time (mostly it's one hand at a time) aside from doing some relaxation techniques.
- no pressure at all hand reflexology (often it's either gentle, medium, deep pressure).  I personally do not use deep pressure.

India Part Eight: Supported Forward Bend from Agra to Jodhpur or was It Jaipur?


After teaching, meditation class, Indian dinner with Jaya, chatting about our practice, it occurred to me two nights ago that I needed to rename the previous post to 
"India Part Eight: Supported Forward Bend from Agra to Jodhpur or was It Jaipur?" instead

India Part Eight: Hunched over from Agra to Jodhpur or was it Jaipur?

 One way to get to your seat!🌹
We asked a tuktuk driver in Agra to take us to a restaurant.  There was nothing where we were after leaving Taj.  He delivered.  We had a nice meal, then we took another tuktuk.  

The idea was to find a park to take a nap, to recharge batteries before we got on a train again.  I had nice nap number 2 at a park outside the fort in Agra

India Part Seven: Arriving at Taj Mahal at Dawn

Taj Mahal; the 
It was chilly early in the morning when we got into a tuktuk at the Agra train station headed for Taj Mahal.  Thank god for the shawl that is most likely always nearby when we (ladies) are in India.

We were amongst the first ones to get there which was the plan.  I loved walking around at dawn - being up early never fails

India Part Six: Yess! Chai, Chai, Chaia at Agra Cantt

First chai (always served steaming hot)

My buddy did pretty much all the navigation as he arrived the previous day and knew his way around a bit already around downtown Delhi.

Agra, the Taj Mahal was next.  It took a while to get tickets.  And yes, we knew it was best to get them online
