Yes, i’ve been to a few lately and i haven’t had time to write anything about them!!! I am going to try to rectify that now. It all began this August with Sharath’s European Tour – i flew to London to attend his 6 day workshop, from the 25th to the 30th of August, hosted by Ashtanga Yoga London 🙂 Prior to attending the Ashtanga Vinyasa workshop in London with Sharath i hadn’t practiced in a while, and i mean a while…so i felt out of shape…things were def ‘harder’…had i practiced before i’m sure things would have felt easier or much more fluid…i didn’t feel as tho i was flowing, actually i felt frustrated and annoyed: at myself. Because of my wrist injury and both my knees, my practice has suffered, but i was going about it all wrong. The best thing to do is to continue practicing…since coming back from London my practiced has picked up again, it feels great, the whole thing does…stepping on that mat feels great too…i guess when you’re dealing with injuries, there are times when you dread stepping on the mat…but the mat is a time to deal with issues, deal with reality and come face-2-face with the facts. I really enjoyed Sharath’s counting and his humor…i took notes during his conference, which i still have to type out (promise i will), but as soon as they’re ready, i’ll share them with the world 🙂 I was doing the primary series which was held at 7.30am on the 1st two days and at 6.30am on the remaining 4 days….i was getting up at 5am, but u know what? I loved it. I really did 🙂 Looking back, kinda miss it now…just don’t understand why it’s sooooo hard getting up at 5am when you don’t have a class with Sharath!!!! 😉 Here’s a few snippets i was able to get 🙂 And then came Kino’s Ashtanga Vinyasa workshop in Bologna! By this point i had been practicing regularly, so i felt good…man you really do notice a difference, it’s incredible, which is why one should just always practice! Next time you ask yourself: “Should i practice?” the answer without a doubt is: “Yes, you should!” – you must! 🙂 The workshop was amazing, i made great improvements in my personal practice too, and Kino shared a few tips which are proving to be so useful: adjustment tips, tips on really activating moola bandha (felt amazing!), and working on strengthening the shoulder girdle – man do i need this…it was awesome, awakening…probably exactly what i needed. I really enjoyed last year’s workshop with Kino & this year’s one was just as good, if not better 😉 Here’s a few snippets of my weekend with Kino 🙂 And that my dears, is what i have been up to workshop wise 😉 There is one that’s coming up soon, that i’m especially looking forward to…have a wild guess who it’s with?! 😉

What an exhilarating experience, Christianne!! I’m trying to stop the green-eyed monster invade my thoughts… *shoos it away*
Kino looks fab… and she is sooo awesome. I drool watching her on youtube. haha!
I wonder when we can have someone like Sharath come here… I guess the key is we do need to travel. And the experience even becomes more and more.
Now rest up, girl! xo
