Life got in the way and I let it go, my mat went to storage and I just put myself back in the 'too fat' for yoga box.
I headed off to The Hill That Breathes for a week and whilst they were lovely and the week was amazing it just reinforced my view that I was wrong for yoga - not, you'll note, that yoga was wrong for me.
I've been looking for something recently, something in me and something for me. Im working, cooking, sewing, socialising living my life but I feel the need for some thing completely for me.
So I was introduced to Curvy Yoga via Sas and her amazing ebook The Body Stories (if you haven't go over to her and download it, and spend time looking though her posts and love notes - trust me its worth it) and something in Anna's voice resonated with me. I mean the name alone 'Curvy Yoga' was made for me!
After signing up for Anna's emails and reading her notes I saw that she was running a 30 days of curvy yoga, on line course with Marianne. The timing just feels right for me - right place right time, time to be a bit kinder to my body and perhaps consider myself worth it?
So I've headed in and started this week - this first week as been about getting ready - finding what it is that I need from my yoga practice, really considering my intention and being honest and serious about my commitment.
So the practice starts tomorrow, the kick off call was tonight. I'm looking forward to it - but also wondering why I chose the month when I am away so much to do it!!
Right then - I'll report back
