What a day!
I have been busy getting the house etc ready for our golfing guests for The President’s Putter (past Oxford & Cambridge players society play this competition at Rye, East Sussex) and for Hubby going off to India on business on Sunday…
But it’s been one of those days…I seem to have been so clumsy all day!
* I dropped a thermos flask full of hot water and it broke, leaking water over my bedroom carpet…thank goodness it was just water!
* I dropped a new, VERY sharp little knife on my big toe…it bounced out again, leaving me with a sore bleeding didgit, a hole in my slipper, but thank goodness the knife survived!
* I then dropped a heavy piece of wood on the end of the same toe as I was filling the log basket.
Please tell me thats my three bad things for the day!!
I am now sitting in the kitchen ( no, I haven’t tidied it yet, give me a chance!) with a healing mug of tea…scuse me whilst I slurp…Star trek on TV, a cherry stone thermal pillow on my neck and you in front of me.
Allow me a little moan…my toe is really hurting! My back &neck are a bite sore from trying a different type of Yoga this morning ( but not in a bad way I think) … OK, moan over, tea slurped ( sorry about the noise), Universe not yet saved by Captain Kirk ( but of course he will!), and I’m trying to decide whether to use a table cloth on the kitchen table tonight or not…think I will, rather than having to polish it – now, don’t frown at me…it will look better!
Now, why did I call this blog New Beginnings? oh, yes, the new type of Yoga!
I bought a book…Maya Fiennnes “Yoga for Real Life” which advocates Kundalini Yoga. The first three chapters which deal with the lower chakras, really appealed to me, so I tried some of the exercises this morning. Before I have sone a Sun Salutation, then a body twist, leg stretch, posing with me feet up against a wall ( can’t stand on my head), then corpsing before chanting Om. I don’t yet know what I think of these new exercises…she doesn’t call them poses. Tomorrow I have a class with a new yoga teacher near here…I don’t know what type of Yoga she practices…I am learning there are very different types. I think I prefer one that flows through the poses with breathing flowing too, but that is perhaps just because thats what I started with.
So, the new beginning is the new teacher, and perhaps a new way of looking at Yoga.
we shall see!
And on that note, I must attend to my toe…
