When: July 2016
What: My maiden voyage to Bali! It’s probably a cliche to sit at a beach club by a pool and relax with cocktails, but when you need a break I can definitely handle some beach side / pool side relaxation for a few days.
Why: Its that pointy end of the working year where you start hankering for summer holidays, and a chance to relax with a nice drink! Not to mention the weather has been lovely and warm. Bring on summer!
Who: A classic girls trip this time. Eating, drinking and shopping. All the things The Artist isn’t in to!
I am embarking on a quest to try to complete some yoga daily. Well at least 5 times a week. I have attended some Yoga, Body Balance and Pilates classes at my gym but always feel rushed to get to the classes on time. A few months ago I discovered the world of Youtube Yoga Land… and began with searching youtube for some beginners’yoga videos, even those 10-15 min long, if that was all I could fit in. There’s so many out there!
One of my favourites is Yoga with Adriene. I’m currently doing her 30 day Yoga Camp. This fortnight of holidays I’m going to try to do it every day!
I won’t lie, I find some of Yoga quite challenging, especially as I am carrying extra weight. Having recurring knee injuries and damage from my car accident also means some poses are too much strain on certain body parts.
But the beauty of doing it at home (and something Adriene encourages in her videos) means I can modify however I like, no judgement! I also feel like being right in front of the TV with your own instructor ensures you get the poses right, something you often miss from the back of the fitness studio.
Hopefully I can get all 14 days completed, with a little Yoga each day!
And the cat seems to love Yoga, she’s so affectionate and rubs up against me in all the poses, weaving in and under body parts. Weirdo!
