About me

  • 2012 was “The year of standing up from the dropback I finally managed to do it a couple of times in Mysore“.
  • live north of London, UK
  • Crave a better work- Life (Yoga) balance, it’s getting there, work part time and practice every day.
  • Love my Ashtanga practice,it has kept me going and at times has been the reason I have opened my eyes and carried on
  • Love to travel, especially to do yoga in nice places like Singapore, Bali, Thailand,India, Spain, Sweden, France, Germany, Italy, Turkey and Estonia so far, but Mysore was the dream Ashtanga yoga destination.
  • Like to listen to Kate Bush, Florence and The Machine, Madonna, Enigma, Alanis Morissette, Dolores O’Riordan, Bjork, Genesis and the odd bit of Pink Floyd.
  • Like giving travel lectures and writing for travel magazines on the side.

    I’ve finally gotten to your blog. We are leaving in 10 days and I think I will soon be needing much moral support from UK Ashtangis. BTW, I love Enigma too and I got interested in Ashtanga after hearing that Madonna started doing it and it replaced biking and running (10 years ago).

    Pat, just get in touch if you need help.

    Mea Culpa by Enigma is a great piece of music, I learned the ashtanga chant partly by listening to madge’s version!

    Love the blog Kevin! And the beautiful photos… Sharath will have you standing up from u.d. by the end of next month. Wish I would still be here to see it but am off tomorrow… All best wishes, Liz

      Thanks Liz,
      It’s been great to meet you, sorry you are leaving, i have enjoyed your assists, especially in UHP and dropbacks.

      I hope Sharath gets me up from UD, I’m here another 6 weeks. I think I have more chance with that than the Sanskrit!

    Hey Kevin
    Have loved reading through your blog. I have been practicing yoga for a couple of years now and I am off to KPJAYI institute in Mysore in November. I have never practiced ashtanga before, I understand the classes are not led so is it importnant for me to try and learn the primary series before I go??

    I just saw your picture with your broken tooth and I immediately recognized you from this YouTube video I love! I think I’ve watched it four times since I find it so inspiring. Will for sure keep following you. Cannot wait to read all your posts.

    Blessings from the Netherlands,
