‘Toto, I have a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore.’

  Day One: Quite scared as I didn’t know what I was getting into. Arrived early to find two ladies waiting outside for the instructors, for one of them it was their first class too and she just started talking to me. This always throws me because it’s not that I’m not friendly but it…

‘I run because punching people is frowned upon’

You know sometimes journeys are fluid. They can start as one thing and then completely change halfway through into something else. This isn’t a bad thing as it’s still the same journey but it’s just changed course a bit and taken a different path. I’m not sure if this reflects on me, as a person…

‘Travel far enough you meet yourself’

I have neglected this blog in the last two weeks and readers, if you are still with me, I apologise. My parents were still here visiting and we went away for a week (more on that in a bit). But now things will be returning to ‘normal’ and so expect weekly updates from me, from…

‘Our minds distort our mirrors’

Just an aside, I apologise for neglecting my blog for the past two weeks. I’ve had my parents visiting from Canada, so I’ve been doing a lot of sight seeing and spending time with them.

‘To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance’

I’m still not finding myself becoming instantly more flexible, but I am feeling more confident with every practise. Chris comes around during class and corrects me, which…

‘Everything that happens is from now on’

Day 6: So now I’ve come to my last yoga session in the six week course, but this isn’t an ending. This yoga journey was never to end here. This is only the beginning. I arrived to class on time and we began to review what we’d learned so far. It was only one of…

‘The mind cannot survive on junk food’

Day 5: We are not one… My body is not working so well today and my mind is quite all over the place. I feel like I am not present in my practise. As usual we start on our own, ‘rehearsing’ what we’ve learned in previous classes, getting adjustments from Chris as we go along….

‘Well, put some skates on. Be your own hero!’

Roller Derby is… Well if you don’t know what roller derby is, I would highly suggest checking out some of the videos on YouTube. There are some really good ones which will tell you everything there is to know. Go check it out. I promise you’ll love it! From the first time I put on…
