I always love to read the old practitioner tell their yoga story. Here is one good read of David Swenson. :)
Ashtanga Yoga is more than a person, is more than a city.
Ashtanga Yoga lives, when people are practicing it, instead of speaking about it. And it seems to me that the teacher has one main objective, one basic role is to inspire his students, to inspire them to practice.
It is not necessary to influence people’s lives, it is important to show them how to use the certain tool and how it is possible to change their life by means of this tool. ~ David Sweson
Ashtanga mysore season is starting next week. Obviously, we all will see this guy, Prakash, in front of KPJAYI. :D
If this man ever takes a sleep in, we may finally have a day of late practice!! Yes, Prakash controls the gates to the Ashtanga Yoga Nilaya. At 34 married with 4 kids in Nepal, Prakash landed this job in 2008 and has been dedicatedly guarding the Shala.
He feels blessed to have met people of different nationalities without travelling. But, the best aspect of his day is playing with Sambhav.(Sharathji’s son) When the Shala closes however, he likes to return to his kids.
