Yogic bliss in India

Tuesday, November 8, 2011

I had the wonderful opportunity of spending some time in an Ashram in Rishikesh, India in September.  Since returning, it has been a tumultuous month as we packed up our apartment and moved into a villa. There are still so many things to do before it feels like home, slowly, slowly... And coupled with the little being growing inside of me I have been feeling tired these past few weeks.  It is no less exciting though and I am looking forward to finding out whether it will be another girl or a brother for the girls.

My trip to India was extremely indulgent and a dream come true, I have always wanted to wile my days immersed in yoga and meditation cut off from the responsibilities of everyday life. I joined a small group from Acharya’s Yoga Centre in Sydney. I miss attending the yoga sessions with Acharya and the other teachers; the Centre is an oasis in the city. We stayed at Yoga Niketan Ashram on a hilltop overlooking the mighty Ganga.
