The last day was very profound. We had our final session in the afternoon. We completed our study of the finishing poses. We all had a chance to work together and practice adjusting technique. Tim held our graduation ceremony. The outpour of emotion and thankfulness that everyone expressed was so heartfelt and sincere. We closed with a good chalisa session.
To fully complete the closing we went down to Moonlight beach for a going away party. The locals had made these three huge bonfires a a Brazilian drumming troupe jammed out until late. It was a lot of fun and Tim was as gracious as ever. This group was so much fun to be with. I genuinely feel that not one person was there to receive a certificate. Everyone was there to explore the yoga and it’s many facets with each other. As I listened to everyones stories I quickly realized I wasn’t the only one who was having a really challenging and yet rewarding time. There also was this great feeling and understanding that as Tim shared his love of the yoga with us it is time for us to do the same with others. In this respect I want pay homage to the great guru Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, for sharing with Tim and now with us. I feel honored to have been touched so deeply by this tradition. Namaste!
