We Are Light

As we purify our minds and senses more deeply through this life, this practice, we naturally become more sensitive to the subtle beauty and power of this world, this Reality.
The truth is, is that we are being[s] of immeasurable light. It is important that we keep remembering this. Take the time to spend time gazing at the different kinds of light all around us and within us too.

Thanks for posting some shala photos. It looks like a nice space for practicing.

ld, it's really nice. there's a couple of smaller mysore rooms, and the gardens though not huge are nice. and the most bamboo flooring you've ever seen. still, i like the warm concrete of aysf. did you like that, as a practice-floor, i mean?

ld said...

Aesthetically, the concrete is better than bamboo (for me). It would be impossible for me to convey how much I love all hues of gray. Wood floors are great, but in general, when it comes to wood floors (although not necessarily for yoga studios), I prefer a richer finish. More of a reddish/dark brown. I actually did prefer practicing on the concrete, although the prospect of falling on concrete is not so inviting!

Regardless of all those flooring preferences, the shala looks warm and peaceful from the photos. It looks like a place where one would be happy practicing.

Concrete? Yikes... doesn't mix with all those timbering exits in intermediate.

Eeyore, you make me happy and smiley even when I am not otherwise happy or smiley. Just wanted to tell you that.

anna thanks, what could be a better way to be thought of!

ld, i agree aesthetically and jean i cringe when people karanda, pinca, vrshchikasana around me just thinking of the concrete.
