Tasting Mysore in London.

Via on Sep 22, 2012

A fiery sunrise started as I began my Mysore practice at Yoga Place in Bethnal Green, London with Catherine Robertson-Glasgow.

Lightened candles, vivid wooden floor, a bright room with big windows, and white surroundings inspired my yoga canvas that morning.

Fresh orange was the colour of the practice; a pure stimulation of enthusiasm and creativity.

The Ujjayi breath slowly warmed up the spine, from the occiput, slowly down each vertebrate, all the way to the tailbone. As I was advancing through the reliable primary series, I was feeling fresh vitality and endurance, my heart felt safe and protected.

As I scanned my body, I felt Cat’s delicate energies and warmth; it was already 8:00 am and creative energies were vibrating throughout the room.

The body canvas felt meditative; my breath and movement became one.

Tasting yoga in London continued to prove the wonders of the Mysore self-practice; I was a foreigner communicating through a common language of asanas and breathing techniques, while painting a body canvas with splashes of tranquil and creative energies…

…I was able to contribute to the spark of orange energies coming from within all of us.


A yoga teacher for more than a decade, Cat inspires a dynamic and thoughtful Mysore practice. Originally Zimbabwean, she has been studying in Australia with Karyn Grenfell, Guruji and Sharath in Mysore as well as with Hamish Hendry in London.
