If your Ashtanga practice is teaching you to be calm and patient, that may be working to your disadvantage.
Because the second month of this year’s practice time in Mysore already has filled up. Here are the details from the institute’s website:
Sharath’s class is full for OCTOBER and NOVEMBER 2014. We will not accept any more registration forms for this month. Online applications for December arrivals will not be accepted until September 1st. Likewise, online registration for the January 2015 batch will begin on October 1, 2014 (3 months before your start date). If you submit your form earlier, it will be automatically deleted without further notice.
It’s starting to feel like the old concert days, where you had to get up early and get in line if you wanted seats to the [fill in your favorite artist] show.
While we have your attention, just another reminder from Mysore (I don’t think anything is new here):
For students applying to study with Sharath, please note the following:
1. Students must start their practice within the first 5 days of every month (e.g. Oct 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th or 5th). If you cannot start on those dates, you should wait and apply for the next month. This also means that in-person registration at the shala will only occur between 1st to 5th of every month.
2. Students must pay by cash when they register in Mysore, and full fees are expected from the start date. Our fee structure has changed. Click here for more details.
3. We do not entertain any cancellations or change of dates, once the online registration has been submitted. Extensions of stay will also not be granted. Students may practice with Sharath for a minimum of one month and for no longer than three months.
