As I offered the flowers to Sharath this morning at our last class, I said 'Wherever you choose to go, we will be there with you.' Because it is what my heart and all my being tells me.
At the final mantra, I couldn't control the tears as they streamed down my cheeks, my heart and being so full from this person. It is an indescribable feeling of being with your Guru who toughens you, softens you, surrenders you and encourages you.
Yesturday in class, as Sharath stood close to the top of my mat, each jump through and exhale down was a salute to him and a Thankyou
Until next time!

Back on home turf..
Yet flying on the clouds..
Smiles met, heart filled, breath synced, bandhas held (!) There is something nostalgic and familiar, practicing in an English Hall. I close my eyes and all I hear and feel are Sharath's words An assurance and tranquility he brings.. I'm so incredibly thankful to be with him this week! Filling my heart to the brim, with sentiments only my Guru can bring
Thankyou to everyone who has made this week possible for me!
Guru Purnima I can't wait to bow at the feet of my dear Guru Sharath in August For those moments when I chant the mantra in our shala in Lisbon, I turn to the alter where Guruji is holding position. As I take in three offerings at the shala flame, this has grown as a symbol to me, when I also honor three. Guruji, Isa and Sharath.. And then I glance left, to the photo of my teacher @isaguitana with my Guru Sharath in India, and thank and look to them This has become my lineage and we each have our own line which is so wonderful to share. It goes back and back and back.. and may it go on and on and on It always feels an incredible moment, humbling, honor, anchoring and truth #lineage#parampara#ashtangayoga#ashtanga -- This is my all time favourite picture of Sharath, now recognised as taken by @ilpo73. Thankyou!
