I have been practicing yoga my since childhood from my father Krishna Chandra. My father learned yoga from a yoga master from India. My father taught me yoga posses Sanskrit, Pranayama, Shitali, Simhasana along breathing techniques. I said, "Babu, meaning Father, I am nervous because I exams at my school." My Babu said, "Prati, do yoga and meditate, and Pranayama." I had to get up and run and yoga at 4:00
I really resented at the time.
In addition, I did a three and half year meditation/yoga retreat. Guess what? What? I had to get up at 3:45 I did this in Delhi, New York in 1993. It was very intense indeed. I was also translator/teacher/and interpreter for other retreat practitioners. We had Tibetan Buddhist Master Venerable Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche. He did not speak much English and other retreat practitioners did not speak Tibetan.
My yoga journey continued even after the retreat. I strongly believe extending my yoga practice beyond my yoga classes and mat.
