I wanted to move, like every inch in my body was ready for dynamic movement and in my mind sweat was dripping down on my mat. And there I was with 24 hours of travel and already a full on class that very first day, maybe things went a bit to fast. I feel something is not right and looking down I realize my right knee has the size of a water balloon. Decided the next morning that it still looked pretty ugly so went to the doctor who gave me some anti inflammatory pills and told me to rest for a few days. So back to yin, meditation and pranayama. Not what was in my mind but probably what I need. It’s the morning of day three and I finally start to arrive, sometimes it just takes time, relearning about my right side, the unbalanced yang of my body. Hello to you from the slow lane.
A few weeks in Sweden is coming to an end, it’s been the warmest summer since forever, no one can remember last time it rained, back in May I heard someone say the other day. It’s been good but lot’s of sitting, eating and all of that. So before I head back to the village I’m making a stop in my fave yoga hipster town. I’m joining my raw vegan yoga holistic ecstatic dancing friends in Ubud next week. Exciting times. you just don’t know what you’ll leave with maybe some new crystals, chakras or just some parasites from the raw food 🙂
Small things that leads to something new and unexpected. A familiar face I hadn’t seen for a while came back. I should go say hello and see why we’re meeting again, what did we miss the first time? Maybe nothing, you never know. It’s nice to have the time to slow down and see things more clear. I can take the time because I have no where else to be, we should live like this all the time. So we start to practice together – I love moving together, the dynamics of a group. Then more people came to join, and then some more. I looked so close at my own fear and judgment and I realized that it was all mine. Mine to keep, learn from, let go off or whatever I choose.
2 feet wind swell with strong south wind today so surf got cancelled in favor of yoga and some snorkeling in the bay. Looks like similar conditions for tomorrow so let’s see maybe sunrise paddle. Maybe not 🙂 Still happy about fun waves from last week.
We have been in Thailand for the last two week for Anders & Rodnas wedding, there are no waves here so i thought it would be a nice idea to do some yoga. We started with some HOT YANG yoga, A sequence of 26 postures and Pranayama breathing. This yoga is practiced in a room heated to no higher than 38 degrees Celsius and is 75 minutes long sounds easy i thought Hmmmmmmm. It started out nice and HOT and by the end i wanted to die (I have never sweat that much in all my life, it was like my body was raining on my matt) but after doing it for another 10 days i got into the grove, and now we are leaving i will miss it. The good news is we are off to find waves in Sri Lanka, so stay posted it’s only fun and sun from here on !!!!!! I never got any video of me doing yoga (don’t want to show off) but here is one of GANDHI doing some. WE LOVE THIS VIDEO !! ………
