He is excited to join practice here at the source again, and don’t worry he already knows he is not allowed to say -yet again- that he has been humiliated by yoga… he will have to come up with something different this time!
Saraswathi is teaching from 4:30 AM until around 9 AM at her own studio and then heads to the main shala to help Sharath with the endless line of students from all over the world. Her shala is doing well. James got a 6:30 AM starting time.
The KPJ website just announced that they will re-open this year in July and that the maximum staying time will be 3 months from now on. I understand, they are very full right now with starting times of up to 10:30 (compared to last year’s latest of what? 8, 8:30AM? -for Sharath students-).
I am not sure how things will develop and if this split of shalas will continue or not, but just in case I thought I would add a photo direction of how to get to Saraswathi’s place, following James along the walk. Good for the visually oriented?
The actuall address is: #55 3rd Cross, 3rd Stage, Gokulam, but if you’ve been around here you know that finding addresses is not exactly tadasana… So here is a picture coming out of the main shala, going right to the corner then turning left (as if you were going towards Santosha)
|As if going towards Santosha (away from the main road)|
|Stay on that street when you come to the Mysore Lyon School|
|Continue alongside the school which will be on your left|
|All the way to the end of this street|
|At the end of that street you will see this colorful house, turn right|
|You will see this, continue to the end of this road|
|At the end of that road there is this house (now in constrction)
Make a left
|Continue on this road…|
|Follow James pass the pink house|
|That is the sign of where to turn right|
|Turning right you will almost see Saraswathi’s place|
|There it is !|
