With 3 Bikram Yoga 30 Day Challenges completed (90 days continuous yoga), I find myself in another country starting all over again. Huzzah only 9 more challenges to go!
It’s bewildering to think I’m a quarter of the way through my journey already and yet I feel it’s all going too fast! 30 days may seem like enough, or even too much time in one city but I only just start to feel it’s pulse, then I’m off on the next adventure.
Looking back I wonder if I have achieved what I set out to do. Same answer for any month in our lives – yes and no. I wanted to produce more video but the time required to shoot, edit, compress and upload is immense, coupled with a slow internet connection and I’m sitting in front of my mac, wishing I was outside experiencing life.
Before leaving Australia I clearly prioritized my goals so one wouldn’t interfere with another. I never realised how important this was until my practice almost fell apart in India. I found it so tough I would end each class, my hands in namaskar thanking myself for just completing my #1 goal: “do the yoga, every day”. I can honestly say, I felt I had only 6 strong classes the whole month. Just getting through each class, practicing every posture without sitting down (or throwing up on myself) was.. well, I guess you’d could call it a challenge!
Thank you so much Rowena, Benn and Maddy (manager & teachers at Bikram Yoga Mumbai) for buying me Bikram’s new book “Bikram Yoga” – just what I needed for focus, inspiration and grounding for the next phase. Also thanks to Rich (teacher, Bikram Yoga Bangkok and Regional Manager True Fitness) for supporting my journey.
Following your journey from here in Maroochydore….
Awesome, thanks for dropping in Andrea. So how’s the Maroochydore studio going, is the new carpet in and extension complete?
