Sleeping in Savasana

My yoga journey

Using Gym Membership More

I’ve been really bad recently, I’ve not been to my gym at all since before I went to Canada. That’s more than a month. It’s both a waste of money and I really should be getting back on track in terms of weight loss and regaining fitness.

My gym offers personal training sessions which I’ve never really looked at but I think for me it’d be a good option to make me more focused on a goal. I think having someone to be accountable to would be a good start. My plan is to go talk to them about options for this tomorrow and then book something in for the next few weeks.

I’ve been really bad for booking classes and then cancelling them the day before. I’m going to focus on booking less classes so I have two a week that I will attend rather than booking four with the intention of deciding which two I’ll do later and ending up cancelling all four.

I’m also aiming on swimming at least once a week. I really get benefit from it but haven’t been going as much as I’d like to. Yesterday I decided I was going but didn’t pack my bag to go, decided I’d go after I’d done something else and then decided it was too late and I was too tired. I need to get better at packing a bag and just going as soon as I’ve dropped Pico at home.

Kino MacGregor Ashtanga Weekend

Ekk! So I’m going to have to change my personal yoga practice from predominantly yin to returning to Ashtanga. I’ve booked into a weekend immersion with Kino MacGregor in September.

I’ve not done any ashtanga for over a year but I loved my morning mysore practice even if I did get injured during it. I’m not entirely sure that I’ll be able to manage all 11 hours of yoga over the weekend but as long as I stick to my theory of not doing everything and that it’s ok to skip poses that hurt my hip then I think I’ll be fine.

It’s mainly that I want to meet Kino and get my book signed that I’m pushing myself to do it. Plus it’s not for 8 months so that gives me time to get back into dynamic yoga practice.

2017 Aims Q2 Update 

This year seems to be flying by. It doesn’t seem that long that I gave my end of March update.

Do at least one yoga class per week.

I’m still not there with this. I’m trying to be better but life is super busy and it’s being a challenge. I’m getting better at doing short practices in the morning even if it’s just 5 minutes.

 

Look into and book Yang Yoga Teacher Training – probably not starting until 2018 but at least sourcing a course that I want to do.

Nothing yet booked but a few options that I’m looking at. I’m hoping to have something booked by September.

 

Make the studio cost neutral.

It’s still making money and I’m happy with how things are going. I’m still working on class timings for after the summer but I think I’m going to go back to three classes a week but with different timings.

 

Teach 3 workshops.

I’m still working on planning for this. I’m confident in teaching hour classes and have started expanding these to longer 90 minute classes but I think of workshops as being at least two hours long. I’m hoping that within the next quarter I’ll try one but I’m certainly growing towards this.
Find out cause of Hip pain and path to solve it.

I’ve got the cause of the pain formally diagnosed. I’m still working on how to minimise it for as long as I can. I have been swimming lots more and it’s not causing me too much more pain. I’m also taking a lot of different supplements which seem to be helping.

 

Travel to two new cities.

I’ve not been anywhere new this year yet but I’m headed to Toronto and Niagara Falls in September.

 

New kitchen fitted.

That’s the kitchen done and it’s beautiful. I’m enjoying having everything back in it’s proper place and bring able to cook.

 

Already completed. 

Finish my 200 hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training.

New Aims

I’m not 100% sure on what to add, I feel that I need to focus on adding yoga into my life on a more regular basis. I miss it and I know that I feel better when I do more classes. I need to find a way of making time for classes or get better at home practice.
