Before coming to the Himalayan Iyengar Yoga Centre I had never learned yoga. It was an entirely fresh experience for me, and one that I'm glad I had. At the HIYC, yoga is an art which infuses a new vitality in you. Every time you come out from a class, even though your stomach is probably growling, you feel like you have the energy to run a hundred miles and then some. You're fresh, happy, and full of life. It would not be enough to say that Sharat teaches you a few yoga asanas here. Personally, I have come away with a new will--to persevere, to believe that if I want, I can do anything in the world. He teaches us to respect our body, to understand the importance of taking care of our health. My experience here has opened new avenues of exploration for me, health-wise and spirituality-wise and I have learnt that it is not enough to introspect, but to truly let go and experience the world as more than just a physical entity. After just a one course, I have felt great changes in the way I face my everyday. I am more confident, I enjoy my life more, and people around me can also feel all these changes. I whole heartedly recommend that anyone who can to go ahead take out some time from their busy lives--even if it is just the week--to come and get a taste of this lovely experience yourself. I'm sure you'll love it just as much as I did!
