For the past two and a half years, 1 have regularly attended Iyengar Yoga classes in Bangalore, the Silicon Valley of India. I practice under the guidance of Yogacharya Shri H.S.Arun, a long time student of “Guruji” BKS Iyengar.
The class is about seven kilometers away from my home. I travel by car, and am usually
chauffeurea. As anywhere in urban India, the route is noisy, polluted and ridden with
chaos. Often, there are roadblocks due to repair/construction work, or there are little
accidents between swaggering commuters or then, there may be slowdowns due to rain.
