For the rest of our stay in India, we will not be riding any more. We have signed up for a yoga class and that is where we will be spending the rest of our days (about a month). As such there will not be as regular posts. There will still be posts, but when you are staying in the same city for a month, there isn’t a whole lot to see. There will not be a post every two days (as I’m sure you guys have noticed).
Over the past few months we have had an average of 72 people visit our site a day (which is amazing, I didn’t know I knew 72 people), and I thank you all for reading (or viewing the pictures) on the site.
Before arriving in Mysore we spent some time Pondycherry. After leaving Sadhana forest (which was a great experience) we booked into something a little more luxurious (which means there was a toilet and privacy). It was good and we enjoyed eating the French food.
As there is not a lot to see between Pondycherry and Mysore, and it is getting hot we opted to take a bus to Mysore. We booked on a sleeper and we both got a bed. Having a bed on the bus is great, you can sleep in comfort and time flies by. Before we knew it we were in Bangalore, hoped onto another bus and we were in Mysore in no time.
We signed up for our yoga class and have been to a few classes. They have been great, two classes a day at two hours a piece. A total of four hours of yoga. It isn’t the relax and try to touch your toes yoga, you hold a pose and every breathyou push with your hands (usually towards your feet or the ceiling depending on the pose) on the inhale and the push with your feet on the exhale. The result is a constant stretch for 5 long breaths. Then you switch sides and do it all over again.
For anyone who wants to say that doing yoga isn’t a real exercise, I challenge you to come to India and sign up for one of these courses. Within 30 seconds of the warm up I am sweating and within 5 minutes my shirt is saturated with sweat. My muscles are extremely sore, every time I move I am reminded of lactic acid that has taken residence in my muscles.
