Yoga

Traveling and Yoga practice

Hello from Thailand.

Testing out my new spot for a more settled morning routine.

I know i’m very lucky and privileged to be traveling and living like this; healthy, wealthy and free. And this post is not to complain but to compare to acknowledge…

Traveling sometimes can be really tiring. I mean ‘Really!’…

This is my second time sitting for a yoga practice since i arrived in Koh Phangan, Thailand few days ago. Past two weeks, since we left HoiAn, Vietnam it has been a little hectic… Cold weather, sleeping in night busses, changing places one night here one night there, long flights, lay overs, packing and unpacking almost everyday, driving around on my scooter with the backpack on my shoulders…(yeah yeah… i know tough life) this was a nice change. I woke up, had my tea with my journal, and a little bit of yoga. All my muscles aching, my body stiff like frozen… i could almost hear my hamstrings screaming…

The video captured only the beginning where i am praying ,practicing kapalabhati with chinlock (it’s that part which looks like belly dance to darbuka tunes) and still doozing a little 🙂

Nothing went as i wished. I got distructed with one hair on my leg (it happens) and then the old woman in the balcony behind, neighbors waking up…

And then , at some point the practice took over … the body relaxed, muscles softened and mind became quiter… And then i knew;

it’s all good.

There is no need for planning. Neither my practice, nor my life needs planning… (Coming from an ex planning manager – yeah…) I know if i allow life to unfold in its own fashion, it will give me exactly what i need. Like it happened today.

So i let the day begin. And i leave it to life to decide what’s on the menu today… Bring it on !

With love from the love-island, Ko Phangan, Thailand
