It has been a very fruitful six Mondays teaching at Kyoto’s Tamisa Yoga Studio.
I have always been told Kyoto folks are not as keen (to yoga practice) as other Kansai folks. And in Japan, Mondays evening & Fridays evening are usually considered as “dead” slots, if you get 10 students you should consider yourself lucky. However, during the 6 evenings I were there, classes were always full, students were all cheerful. Not competitive, no laid back practitioners either. A very mixed level class situation which also made teaching challenging.
I almost ended every class by recommending the students to try Mysore style practice. At the end of the 6th class, finally a handful of them approached me for more information. Now I am beginning to get excited ~ for the upcoming 2 new Mysore Shala that are due to open by the end of April in Kyoto!
It will grow, it will boom!
Meanwhile, I will continue to play my part. Accepting further invitation from Tamisa to teach more in Kyoto and become their regular guest teacher.
