Each morning we practice outside on the terrace, facing east. The sun rises in front of us as we practice. It starts small and red just over the horizon and grows into a hot yellow ball overhead. Sun Salute in the truest sense.
The terrace where we practice in the mornings. It is usually between 80-90 degrees Fahrenheit, 60-90% humidity at that time of day.
As a gift, we gave Muktamala a Dharma Yoga Wheel. She was eager to try it, even in the nice sari that she wore for the occasion. She has a light, playful and generous spirit.
It is dark at 5:30pm, though it is warm. After receiving our certificates, we went to the front gate to take some pictures.
Some of us did postures in front of the gate. Notice that crowd that gathered on the left.
Muktamala presenting me with the certificate for the training. I look like a giant.
