An interesting introduction to Yoga classes at Sivananda Yoga Centre New Delhi, India… Sivananda Yoga calls these yoga classes the traditional Hatha Yoga Classes.
Experience depends on your expectations, experience and the quality of teachers.
Circa 2006: I attended two of the sessions at their South Delhi yoga centre… One was totally an exercise session by a greenhorn whereas the next one was conducted by a senior teacher. I liked both BUT like i said, the experience is yours to take.
Yoga is for losers…. This is the first thing I said when I interacted with my first teacher at the Sivananda South Delhi Centre. That was 11 years back and I still continue to go there for my practice. Yes! I do take my breaks, from time to time but then that is normal. Right!
What I have learned in the last 11 years? I do not know… All I can say is I have stopped smoking, drinking and generally being more mindful of my body and mind health.
I never was a blind faith follower. I still am not and that’s where I connected with Sivananda yoga; it lets you be.
More to come…
All the Best!
