It’s time to leave this beautiful island

Yoga is the perfect opportunity to be curious about who you are. Jason Crandell

Just when I am getting this ‘relaxation thingy’ under my belt, it is time to leave for my next adventure. Goodbye Mahagiri Resort –  I will miss you – the food, the people, my trusty scooby scooter and I will treasure the quietness and peace that has enabled me to think – it’s been fantastic.  By the time you read this I will have landed in Singapore where I will be staying for a couple of nights before heading back to beautiful Bali to start my first yoga course. Why Singapore? Well …. because I will be in Bali longer than the sixty days my visa allows, I need to leave Bali and re-enter again. Once I do this I can extend my visa. What the heck – Singapore is a fab city to visit – shopping, shopping and more shopping.

Losing all sense of time has its benefits. At the resort time is irrelevant – things will simply get done when they get done. It took a few days to settle into ‘doing nothing’. I felt quite fearful about not having a schedule and had to force myself to take these feelings to my mat. As I meditated, I began to notice another island – a place I had not visited for quite sometime – my soul, the real me.  I have a hunch it is only in this place that I will discover who I am without my busyness.

I enjoyed a fabulous yoga class called ‘Serenity Yoga ‘ which was just a hop, skip and a jump away from the resort. With lots of time for ‘thinking’ I have given lots of mindful thought into ideas I would like to bring back to NZ.  Yoga dance, sky yoga (in hammocks) also known as ‘Aerial yoga’ –  I have an opportunity to experience all of these in both my courses and I would love to add these to my classes. Until then it’s head down and bum up, both literally and physically, as I continue to practice my yoga and wade my way through copious course notes. Talk soon.

On a journey of self and worldly discovery. Exploring, delving into the abyss of life. I see stepping stones, although they only appear as I step onto them, floating above the earth, suspended by faith and trust. Allowing the journey to unfold as it needs to, let's go!
