A Month in India

I had the good fortune to spend the month of January 2015 in Pune, India at the Iyengar Institute known as RIMYI -the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute. Before going I had the notion that I would have so much time and would spend my days reading, trying to fill the hours of the day, and…

Rope Wall Yoga at Spirit Loft
