Travels to India

The YogaLife programs are based on the work of The Yoga Institute, Mumbai, India, the first Yoga Center in the world to open their doors to the general public in 1917. (more about The Yoga Institute)

December of 2010, Brian Serven travelled to the Yoga Institute in Mumbai for a month of study and observation. The following posts were sent to us during his stay.

Brian's thoughts while waiting to board his flight out of New York:

At any moment it could have been wisped away with the wind or buried by other dreams. Instead of falling prey to all those obstacles, the idea began to collect and absorb everything around it until everything seemed to be connected, in one way or another, to this one idea. This dream wasn't meant to be idle long and eventually gravity made its presence, causing this dream to begin to tumble down this mountain that relentlessly reaches upward. An avalanche was soon to follow, and I ve been swept with it.
