We started with a peaceful morning yoga practice at the beautiful Lodi Garden next an ancient Mogul temple. There were many locals out doing yoga, walking their dogs and enjoying the day. After breakfast we headed to Old Delhi first to the Jama Masjid mosque and then into the bustling and chaotic heart of Old Delhi. We boarded bicycle rickshaws and followed the flow of two wheelers, mini buses, cow driven carts, bicycles, scooters, people on foot and delivery vans, It was a somehow beautiful coordination of movement that wound through narrower streets and alleys. I dont think the natives were used to seeing a white woman with a knee brace on so I accepted their curious stares and tried to get some smiles from children on the school bus rickshaws. After a stop at the spice market we enjoyed a street food lunch at Bengali Market and a evening of devotional Muslim music at the Sufi Music Festival.

I attend Cheryl's class regularly and feel that my practice has improved immensely over the past few years due to her expert coaching. Her teaching style is clear and compassionate and her previous experience in teaching adults is evident in her organized approach and easy to understand instructions. I also appreciate that Cheryl not only teaches us about how to correctly position ourselves, but also touches on many aspects of yoga philosophy, which in turn has deepened my personal practice and heightened my awareness of the connection between mind and body, breath and relaxation.
