Daily Life in Rishikesh

I have already delineated a program for myself. From 8:00 am - 9:30 am at Omkarananda Ashram, where I am now staying, I have an easy class of Hatha yoga with Murti. For the rest of the day, nothing, or maybe I will try to tolerate my way through a spiritual teaching here and there. At 6:00 pm, I have Ashtanga yoga with the delightfully effeminate Kaman. That runs for more than two hours and is really intense. I've never done Ashtanga before, so it was fast and confusing, but I caught on quickly enough. I even did the headstand posture for the first time. That's my schedule. I may otherwise try to fit in some Ganges rafting or a Reiki class. Life is good here. And cheap. Cheap is a synonym for good.
