I was sixteen and working as a bus boy. The dishwasher was really into metaphysics, supernatural phenomenons, UFO's, conspiracy theories, etc, and one day he told me about Yoga. That afternoon he took me to the local park and showed me Surya Namaskara. From that point on I was practicing Sun Salutations. In I placed 4th in the Seattle Marathon after training rigorously for a few months and my body became completely tight and so I went to an Iyengar Yoga class.
Family Life: The "Seventh Series" of Ashtanga Yoga
Disappointed, he shook his head and began giving me brief instructions for surya namaskara. From that precise moment he became my guru. For the next three months every day I practiced asanas and pranayama under his guidance. He drove me throughout the primary series, step by step, like a father teaches his daughter how to ride a bicycle. Masterji is not a chatty man, but when he speaks he always says the right thing at the right moment. His compassionate eyes and huge smile still help me during the difficult moment of my practice. I called Masterji on a Tuesday morning but nobody answered the phone.
Kino MacGregor's 7-Pose Yoga Break for Stress Relief
We talk about her journey into yoga, mental challenges, how she approaches her own practice and deals with times of low energy or stress. I was really nice to speak to such and advanced practitioner and find him to be so relaxed and straightforward about practising and perusing other interests. It great to see also you can healthy and muscular and still do advanced yoga postures. Maria Boox has a wealth of knowledge and it was great to be able to talk with her about Ashtanga, her own injuries, meditation and much more. I really enjoy interviewing a yoga couple because you get to appreciate how they interact and relate to each other but also the two different energies, approaches to the practice and body types.
