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!”

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”

Yin Yoga

What is Yin Yoga?  Esther says it best… click here to read about it.

So last night I went locally, to a Yin class.  As is the norm, I didn’t really research anything, I just knew that it was a slow-paced practice and as my kid wanted to join me, I thought it may be a good intro for him.

It was.  It was slow-paced, lots of breathing with flows in a lovely space with candles and soft music.

I am not sure, even today, how I felt about the class.   Continue reading “Yin Yoga”

Life is not always easy…

Where has the time gone.

Busy with a home move has seen my attention to my yoga practice somewhat dwindle.

Yesterday I updated my journal and normal practice has resumed.

Last Thursday I went through to a class with Dave.  I basically DIED on my mat.

I fucking HATE twists…  is that a very UNyogic thing to say?   Continue reading “Life is not always easy…”

Journal notes and doodles

My written journal is coming along nicely…

My home practice needs work.

My ‘meditation’ is my running, but Continue reading “Journal notes and doodles”

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”

Journal update

Just updating my course diary, thought I would share what I am doing with my #writeitdownwednesday post it notes…  🙂  I keep each one on my computer screen for a week and when I have a few I will ‘file’ them sort of like this, in my journal and share them with you. Continue reading “Journal update”

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”

just a journal update :)

Yoga class with Dave last night.

RSB (right sitting bone) is still sore, but not in agony like last week… it doesn’t feel like it’s a bleeding wound anymore (ok, maybe that’s a slight exaggeration) 🙂

Gotta love Dave, he subtly, within the class instruction, let me know all the poses I needed to be little more aware in… and I left the class brimming with energy, enthusiasm and positivity that THIS weekend, I will practice… ON MY OWN! Continue reading “just a journal update :)”
