Yoga: Visiting Omkar 108 Yoga in Los Angeles

What does Omkar mean? I wondered, and google told me that first of all it:

Causes you to be systematic, technical, and attentive to detail

My first practice after a lot of confusion and suffering in my life happened today when I had the privilege of visiting Omkar 108 Ashtanga Yoga in Los Angeles.

From outside, on the back of the studio, there is a speaker so you can hear mantras – I thought I recognized Manju’s CD which I find energizing and focusing.


I was there early so I peeked in, and saw one of the assistants practicing an advanced pose.

Sometimes I forget how amazing it is to practice in a tight Mysore room.  I miss that.

I arrived at the open door call which is 7:30 AM which  gave me plenty of time to do the standing poses before it filled in pretty tight.

Then I received a deep adjustment in Mari D and another one in kurmasana, as well as a nice deep push on the final forward bend from Jorgen after the back bends, the type that makes you breathe very deeply because there is simply no other way.  And I loved it.

Things are changing in my life and the one constant that does it for me, again and again, is yoga.

I highly recommend visiting if you find yourself on the West Coast.  The energy in the room was pretty infectious.

There is just a bathroom with no showers so if you need to glam up go with time to return to your place and change.
