Scuola di Ashtanga Yoga Milano walk around everyone and adjust & help. All of this is all good & well, problem is i am so used to doing Vinyasa flow, which gives a lot more freedom of movement from one asana to the next, mixing it up between primary, secondary etc…i wasn’t prepared for this…not very prepared…in fact i was able to get to Navasana w/o any problems…then the problems start. So if like me, you get a little stuck after Navasana, Lino suggests doing a few exercises to release the shoulders: camel pose and bridge pose…then you you were asked to move into the adjacent room to go thru the finishing sequence. Which is exactly what i did. What i didn’t know and could not prepare for, was the emotional impact the practice would have on me.

Lino Miele comes to Milan twice a year – October and March i believe? Tho i will need to double check that! 😉I found out that Lino Miele was coming to Milan for 4 days of ashtanga. There was no way i was going to miss this. Lino Miele “is said to be one of the most capable Ashtanga Yoga teachers in the world”, he is also one of the fewest certified teachers in the world as Sri K Patthabi Jois’ student. I quickly signed up to 2 mysore style classes – both at 7am in the morning. I paid a total of €70 for both classes…i guess i had assumed that it would be something like when Sharath came to Milan….but no…it was a mysore style class which meant that you come and you start going thru the primary series sequence on your own, regardless of what everyone else is doing…and then Lino Miele and the other resident Yogi’s at the
