India

Well…so much for  working on my blog more and keeping you all up to date.

Safe to say thats still a work in progress!

I’m now back in NZ after 6 fabulous weeks in India, I LOVED every minute of it…ok maybe not the really sweaty yoga classes at sunrise, but almost all of it!

There was not one moment where I thought to myself what the heck are you doing here.

The food the people and the places I went to were all amazing and I will definitely be back.

I feel I saw 1% of Goa and there is some much more to see.

I spent 4 weeks doing Yoga Teacher training in Ashtanga Vinyasa with Sampoorna yoga in agonda beach.

Given I had done about 3 Ashtanga classes before going to say I was in shock and pain after my first class would be an understatement. However…. now I plan to make ashtanga my personal practice as I feel its going to be great for when I’m at work.

lets talk about Garlic Naan and how I feel that I probably ate my body weight of this delicious snack while I was there, seriously its that good!

ASHTANGA FOR LIFE…this group LOTUS so many amazing, caring, beautiful people. Who would have thought we showed up as strangers and left as the best of friends wondering how we would survive back in our worlds without each other.IMG_9191

 

Sunset beach walks and pictures after our graduation, we walked in as strangers, we’ve laughed, cried and spent hours flowing through vinyasa together to get to where we are today. Massive thank you to all the fellow students and all the amazing teachers that we had along the way, Sampoorna in Agonda you really are such a magical place.

Namaste.
