Happy Ashtanga

Today is Full Moon.

I am really aware of moon cycle since I have started yoga.

I feel more down and physically tighter when new moon is closer, and more excited and my body gets flexible when full moon is closer.

But either way I have to be careful as I am not balanced well and get injured easily.


Originally we don’t practice on full moon and new moon in India, Mysore.

I know, but maybe I am crazy, I did take 2 classes today.

I drained after that, but anyway I just followed my own instinct.

During practice, I focused on breathing, deeply got into myself.

The class was pretty chatty, some people went easy due to full moon, but actually it didn’t bother me so much, as I was really into my own practice.


At my second class was Vinyasa, held one of my favorite teachers.

She gave me music, which I was really searching for a while.


Now I am writing this with this music, feeling very calm even though full moon.


Yoga is not what you can do, more like how you can feel.



























“We are what we think.

All that we are arises with our thoughts.

With our thoughts we make the world.

Speak and act with an impure mind

And trouble you will follow you

As the wheel follows the ox

that draws the cart.

We are what we think.

All that we are arises with our thoughs.

With our thoughts we make the world.

Speak or act with a pure mind

And happiness will follow you

As your shadow, unshakable . ”

-The Dhammapada



She is the one of greatest Yoga teacher I have seen.

We receive these cards at the end of class, and how amazing most of time the phrases hit my situation, concern.

I have been wondering what I am doing, not sure if I am doing right both to myself and to others.

Am I being sincere from really deep my mind, to my family and friends?

What I hate isn’t what I am doing?

When you are on the right track, you feel that everything goes well, and once you get on the wrong track, you feel everything goes wrong.


I don’t know, I just have to keep moving.

Nobody is perfect, we are all making mistakes.

Just try to be honest and pure to yourself.
