Toom and Varsha compering the womenifesto event.
The yoga and meditation hall was also a surprise. It was large and with mats and props we generally see at Iyengar yoga classes.
Toom was very conscientious as a teacher. She would be at the hall early, open the windows and arrange the place with carpets, mats and props!
I have chosen a picture where we do not look that awkward!
Morakot who was with us at the ashram told me that Toom liked the idea that a Thai was teaching Indians in India. (Some very 'stiff' Indians!) . Toom was very gentle and polite (She would say 'Sorry!') while she corrected our postures.
I believe she had chosen 'ToomShanti' on her email ID and Varsha suggested it should be 'ToomShakti!' and you can see why.
It is not that she taught us Yoga just at the classes . She taught us by example even outside the classroom! Here is she at the river deep in contemplation. She would stand still for at least fifteen minutes in prayer!
I forgot to ask her what her prayer was!
