yoga connections…

Sometimes something new and amazing appears in my life, and then I wonder how on earth I ever lived without it before – recently I’ve fallen in love with the ancient practice of Yoga. It’s something I’ve always looked on with deep admiration for others who practice every day and can bend in all sorts of positions, but it never really appealed to me. I love the freedom of running or the exhausting but exhilarating feeling after a good gym session. It kind of crept up on me, and before I knew it – BAM, I’m addicted and am starting to plan all sorts of retreats.

I think I can blame my friend Mel, a total yogi and wouldn’t be without her Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday sessions – she invites me with her, luring me into blissful classes, connecting me to some incredible teachers, (in Marlow we have two amazing girls, Sarah Carter and Joelle Pettitt) – I dabbled years ago in my 20′s, but never really connected with anyone, they all seemed so serious…and I’m so not – I realise now it’s important to be able to connect. Now after each session, I’m either in fits of giggles or an emotional blubbing mess…again, I can’t explain this…it may be due to the fact I’m a little strange!

It’s such a peaceful experience, especially after organising two small people, (or at least trying to), working  and endless crazy weekends – my sanctuary is the mat now and I can’t recommend it highly enough – even my girls do it after school and they love it. I heard it can sometimes open you up spiritually – I really didn’t believe it before, but I absolutely do now…I’d love to hear about other experiences…

    Well, some say that life begins at 40 and I really do believe this, Darling. No classes locally when I was your age and thinking about yoga but have to admit it was only a half-hearted ‘thought’! So pleased you’ve found it and your illustration, as always, is brilliant. My clever little girl.I love you. Mummy x x x x x

    Yoga is such a great thing for anyone to have in their life. I’ve been doing Iyenga yoga on and off for about 15 years – more off than on in all honesty – but it’s always something I go back to and when I get on a roll with it, it brings so much more than just physical fitness. Here’s to you enjoying it for many years to come.
