Today I did yoga… My older sister started yoga retreats called Simplicity Retreats, it is now in it’s second year, and is running very smoothly! I went to the first one and it’s just seems to be getting better, then again I am probably biased. The yoga today was called “Revitalise Yoga Retreat” with two sessions. The first was a very dynamic, fast paced sequence, which I loved. Hard work and kinda sweaty but you do feel quit reenergised by the end of it. The second session was more of a cooling down one, made you feel alert, awake and hungry lol. So it’s been a year (I think) since I went to the very first retreat, and I do remember vaguely thinking that I should start doing yoga more. Of course, I didn’t actually do anything about it straight away. But for my birthday, my lovely hubby gave me wii fit with yoga. I was doing it a little here and there, and slow but steady, I got back into. I found a class I really liked, but the times didn’t suit after one term so I didn’t continue it, which was a shame. However, I now have a class on the same floor as my office, which is great. It’s a nice small class and the sequences are good. Only problem is that it’s on during school holidays. I am determined to not let that matter. I have also noticed that my yogaing today has improved a lot! I guess it is true, even if I do a little bit of yoga, it’ll all help? I actually already do a bit of yoga, without realising it. I was taught a mantra last year, which I do first thing every morning with a yoga sequence, just sitting down in bed. The mantra and sequence goes: “I am ready for what the world has to offer” *bring palms together like your diving then open arms wide* “I am unique” *bring palms in towards you then turn to face the palm down, and push them to your lap* “I am complete” *make a little circle with your arms from your elbows then bring your palms to clasp your tummy* It’s a nice mantra, I’m not sure if I remember it word for word, but it works for me. I think I’m going to see if I can find it in sanskrit.  Oh, I then follow it with 3-5 long deep breaths, and I feel suprisingly awake and as the mantra says “I am ready for what the world has to offer”. ::photo by: Simplicity Retreats
