A Treat

(I apologize to those that have already read this. It posted prematurely prior to edits)

Wednesday Women’s Class. Today we all wondered if Geeta would be teaching the women’s class again. Our class begins at 9:30am which is the same time Guruji is practicing. A teacher named Nawaz began teaching the class, we started with Adho Mukha Virasana. Guruji wasn’t satisfied with the instruction or our asana. At that point, from the beginning to the end of class…Guruji taught us. Gulnaz did most of the demonstration, Nawaz guided, and Guruji on the microphone. WHAT A TREAT! I never thought I would have the opportunity to be taught by B.K.S. Iyengar himself. Nawaz even had us repeat the key instructions out loud that Guruji gave us to make sure we got the point, which made the atmosphere calming. He sure can make you wake up in an asana. I always thought I would be petrified if ever given the opportunity to be in a class when Guruji taught. But it was inspiring, transforming, and lots of fun too.

I’ve been really busy…so much to do, so much to see, and so much to eat! Here are a few pictures.
