Week 8 BWY Foundation Course

I am not quite sure what to write… but I feel compelled to write something about yesterday.

I don’t even know where to start.  My head feels all over the place.

I went into this course hoping to come out, fitter, more flexible and with the tools to home practice confidently.  The first few lessons had me like WTF?  Whyyyyyyy do I need all this spiritual sh*t?  (I am so ashamed)

After yesterday… I am like BRING IT ALL ON! Continue reading “Week 8 BWY Foundation Course”

Yoga Course (Week 7) & Growth!

I am LOVING this course!

I have learnt SO much!

I had a really bad back this last week (three weeks actually), so sat out of any practice on the day… but I did take LOADS of notes…

My journal is looking good…  I am going to keep it with me for a while I think.

There is a LOT… and I mean a LOT to get my head around… It’s all quite spiritual and doing this course had made me realise what Yoga really is all about. Continue reading “Yoga Course (Week 7) & Growth!”

progress…

I have been doing a bit of home practice, but I still feel I need guidance.

I have tried quite a few teachers in my area… I am just not ‘gelling’ with any the way I would like to.  They all have something to offer which will probably see me attending classes here and there but no one I would like to join weekly, like I did with Dave.

So…  after MUCH searching and deliberation, I have decided to join One0Eight!!!

I have been following Rachel (@yogagirl) long before she was an Instagram sensation… and I love everything about her and what she stands for.

I am so excited…  Today, amongst a few, I have WATCHED her ‘back’ therapy class.  I NEED IT!

OMG yes…  read about it here…  or not!

Cant wait to be fine and to roll my mat out with One0Eight.

just flow…

I HAVE been doing some yoga… just short targeted areas, like 10 – 15minutes each day.

Then on Saturday, I put on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b7JS0O3pFS8 and just decided to flow, see where it took me.  I had the house to myself, so I played it through the hifi, really loud…  just wow!

I flowed for 50 minutes!  Totally lost myself…  don’t remember what I did, but ended up in tears… not sure why… release?

I felt amazing afterwards…

It certainly pays to just be good to yourself sometimes and just do what feels right.

when it just works…

I do like to make sure I get some sort of workout done on a Monday… It always seems to set the week up in a really good way,

I decided to go through to Holymoorside last night for one of Dave’s classes.  One, to catch up on last weeks class and two…  I am away Wed/Thurs this week with work.

Holymoorside is 23 miles from home…   Continue reading “when it just works…”

my love/hate relationship with yoga…i

Is it just me…

ahhh that again…  but seriously… can one REALLY just LOVE yoga like all of the time?

My practice is so not consistent!  One day I LOVE my practice even though I didn’t really feel like it… then, I’m really up for it and go hating it, struggle and sigh through an hour of half of my mind repeating #wtfamidoingheretoday….  (yip, with the #!) 😉 Continue reading “my love/hate relationship with yoga…i”

Day 2 – BWY Foundation Course

Seven hours of yoga may have you thinking “IS SHE MAD????”

To be honest, I thought that too as I got up at 07h00 on Sunday morning…  but… it was THE best seven Sunday hours I have spent in a very long time! Continue reading “Day 2 – BWY Foundation Course”

Thursday Yoga Class

Yoga with Dave last night…

YogaButt is healing but slowly.  Forward bends with knees bent and just listening to my body in deep stretches at the moment.

Otherwise a lovely class…  New experience in glute strengtheners…  phwoar talk about REALLY working those glutes! I feel positively ‘peachy’ today!  😉 Continue reading “Thursday Yoga Class”

My First 20 minutes…

Life is busy…  As much as I try to MAKE time for self practice I am finding it really difficult.

I have ended up trying to fit it in!

Selling the house is stressful, I just wish someone would walk in, fall in love with it and hand over the cash!

Last night we had TWO viewings, so,  I cleared the lounge, vacuum cleaned etc, hubby and kid were not home yet,  I had SPACE for a change and so, IN MY SLIPPERS…. Continue reading “My First 20 minutes…”
