Lost and forgotten knowledge

 

Growing up with a yogini mother was not always easy!

It was hard for me to accept that my mother was a little different from my friends' mothers.

That there were huge Shiva and Laksmi cloths hanging on our walls and that she wore red all the time didn't make it any easier. But because of her, I literally started doing yoga from the first day of my life. I attended my mother's classes, sometimes just sitting on her belly while she practised her Urdva Danurasana, or clinging to her like a little monkey...
