Where I stayed
Yoga Vidya Dham ashram
everyone's making their plans for after the program. some people have a few months, even a year, to travel and are heading to other parts of india to explore, do more programs or just wander. i've only got 5 days, so i'm heading to the osho meditation center in Pune to practice different kinds of meditation. i really want to take a bollywood dance class heehee, but i cant seem to find one. i did however buy some great bollywood cd's so i can groove to the music when i get back home. maybe i'll watch a bollywood movie on the plane so i can bust out with some new moves in cali..
ok, gotta catch my taxi back to the ashram..until next time!
today i taught my first one-hour class of yoga! (except i went too fast and ended early, hehe). it was pretty cool and i learned a lot from the feedback of other students and our instructor. we only have 3 more days of the program and we're done?! we had some free time today so i'm back in town (and yes, the first thing i did was eat my chocolate cake, icecream and capaccuino. i dont care how jittery it makes me!) on our final day we're having a party at the ashram, so we're going to cook food from our hometowns (yes! we can use garlic and onion, which we didnt eat this whole month b/c it's not considered ayurvedic) then we're having a 'talent show' haha. i'm teaching my 2 roomates a hula dance to perform, and then we're going to teach the audience a small bit:) my roomates are really getting excited about it. there are tons of hibiscus flowers at the ashram, so we'll have pretty flowers to wear in our hair.. another group is forming a band to perform some music..they call themselves 'yoga blues' hahahah. we're still thinking of a snappy name for our dance group..
