A fantastic 2 weeks was had by 20 yogis at the palm tree yoga centre Kerala. 2 hours of yoga in the morning, facing out towards the palm fringed beach, and then restorative yoga as the sun went down. (Thanks to my Colleague Abra) Palm tree is perfect for chilling out, kicking off your shoes walking on the beach and enjoying wonderful vegetarian curries. The peace of the backwaters was a calm treat away from the beach, and the resort of Varkala demonstrated how Hindus, Muslims, Christians and Buddhists can live harmoniously together. Our lovely group had a really great time, and came back with memories of Indian dancing, tuk tuk rides, bargaining for gifts, having lots of lovely dresses made at the tailors,…

A Fabulous time was had by all. Rajasthan 2016. A whistle stop tour of New Delhi, a train to visit the magnificent Taj Mahal. Rickshaws around the madness of Old Delhi. A short flight, and drive to the charm of Castle Bijaipur. Yoga on the roof top, morning walks, jeep safari, the splendid fort at Chittorgarh, and of course our wonderful hosts, headed up by Rao Narendera Singh, to whom we owe much gratitude. Not forgetting our night at the lake glamping, and the magnificence of the city of Udaipur, and our perfect stay at Kankarawa Havelli. We are already looking forward to next years trip!

TKV Desikachar, the son of legendary T. Krishnamacharya, died on the 8th August 2016 at the age of 78. He is one of the last students from the direct Krishanmacharya lineage, nephew of B.K.S. Iyengar, and founded the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram in Chennai, India. One of his seminal books, The Heart of Yoga, is found in many teacher training programs. One of the best quotes from that book is "The success of Yoga does not lie in our ability to perform postures, but in how it positively changes the way we live our life and our relationships." I was very fortunate to meet Desikachar around 10 years ago, and will always remember him adjusting me in Paschimottonasana, and taking my…
