Sleeping in Savasana

My yoga journey

Traveling Yoga

on February 14, 2015

I’m currently in London visiting friends for the weekend and I’ve not used this as an excuse not keep up with my yoga practice. I didn’t bring a yoga mat with me so have been doing things on wooden floors which has actually not been too bad. I’ve ordered a yoga mat towel, which will fold small and fit easily in my bag so I can be better prepared for my next trip.

This morning I did a 30 minute vinyasa flow video to stretch out then I dragged my host out of bed to join me in doing 20 minute beginner video. He had only done one yoga class ever and didn’t really enjoy it so it took a bit of convincing to get him to try it. He skis and surfs so knows that he should do more stretching. It was good to see him try all the stretches and I think he enjoyed it. He’s said he’ll try another video so I might have just made my first yoga convert.

The beginners video was quite slow for me and reminded me that my preferred style of yoga is flow. In the words of Candace I need to go slower than you want to.

Later on I went to Lululemon in Covent Garden which had a couple doing acroyoga in the store for Valentine’s Day. It was cute and nice to see them do stuff that I know how to do. Yet again I had the frustration of finding lots of cute tops in Lululemon but none that fitted correctly. I don’t think I’m a odd shape but they just don’t work. It’s probably a good thing for my bank balance.
