My New Years was VERY quiet… but during the day I was thinking about everyone in NZ partying away… I was with you in spirit! A few of the yoga people from my school went to some Bajans (chanting) but because I went to the evening back bending class I was too late to join. There was a few parties in Mysore but I decided I didn’t really feel like partying with people I didn’t really know… so in the end I went out for dinner with a couple of people from my class, then headed home and crashed! I woke up in time for midnight and watched the fireworks from my balcony. While it was an unusually sober and rather solitary New Years it was a really nice one…. I felt peaceful and happy.
I have had a fantastic year in 2008 and have a really good feeling about 2009 – it is going to be awesome, even better than 2008!
Today was a holiday – so no yoga classes. I decided to do my own practice and for the first time I did the primary series all by myself. I did it on the balcony in the early evening (when it was nice and cool) and it took me about 1hour 45mins (this is about right I think) – it felt like it took me 40mins though, the time went so fast!!
Other than the yoga session I haven’t done much today. I just pottered in my little apartment…. I wrote out my recipes from cooking class, sorted out paper work, did housework and read – it was so nice just to chill out and relax.
While eating my coconut on the way to the internet café I realized that I have only got 2 weeks of this yoga lifestyle left… I’m going to enjoy every last bit of it – I must also start taking (and posting) some photos!!! : )
