I will be visiting, staying with and studying with Ravi and Sheela in Chennai. I met them when they came to Denison University for the 2008-2009 academic year.

So I did. And I became a regular, every Monday through Friday morning at 8 AM in Swasey chapel. Ravi taught a different kind of Yoga than I'd been used to. He taught the Yoga Sutras and breathing as well as asanas, and Sheela taught us Vedic chanting. She has the most beautiful chanting voice!!! You can hear her at their website - http://www.yoganidhi.net/. A whole community of Yogis grew up around Ravi and Sheela. They are just that kind of people. As my friend Carol says, they are surrounded by love wherever they go.

By the way, it is 77 degrees in Chennai right now. Tomorrow morning they are predicting a wind chill factor of around minus 15 degrees in Springfield MO.
