Mysore, Karnataka, South India
Our first stop is Mysore where we are practicing Ashtanga Yoga with Saraswathi (daughter of the late Pattabhi Jois, fondly known as Guruji by his students). http://kpjayi.org
This is also where we are picking up our Royal Enfields which have been preordered with the help of Anya's friend. Our month practicing yoga in Mysore will allow us to order accessories and prepare the bikes (and ourselves!!) for the upcoming 5 months on the road.

Yoga Stops Traffick was a fund and awareness raising event which took place March 5th in various locations around the world. We attended the event in Mysore which was held at Mysore Palace.
Funds raised went to support the organisation Odanadi (which translates to 'Soulmate'); like many such organisations, they take a holistic approach to addressing human trafficking and supporting victims. You can support their good work by organising a Yoga Stops Traffick event in your own country; details on the Odanadi website.
Participants at the event in Mysore included western yoga students, locals, and children from the home which Odanadi runs; we all completed 27 Sun Salutations (Surya Namskara).
