Even after a restless night I felt good in the morning, getting up wasn’t a problem at all. For breakfast I had a green tea and a freshly made melon juice but with so much more water than the fruit juice that you could hardly taste the melon but it was lovely and refreshing anyway and satisfying. I felt good so I decided to go jogging and run 5.5 km. It went alright but I must admit that my legs felt heavier than usual. Today I went to work and the hunger came back as soon as I started working but drinking my tea helped a lot. The hunger feeling is not strong but just constantly present, I hoped it would be gone by now. My mood is ok, not the best but not bad. I notice that I am just quickly agitated, my patience is sometimes non existent, but only sometimes and I don’t fancy having long conversations at the moment. At the moment I don’t feel tired at all and there is a big difference between me being tired and feeling weak. The weakness comes and goes. I think it depends on what you are doing and my skin is feeling nice and looking fresh at the moment but the tongue looks not good, just completely white, God knows whats coming out through my tongue. Another 3 days to go! Hope this night is better…

How did I start with Yoga?

I’ve been exercising all my life.

When I was a kid living in Mexico I did Gymnastics, Swimming, Karate. Then we moved to Germany and I started with Tennis, Field Hockey and when I started working there wasn’t the time anymore. Especially because I worked in advertising and that means you don’t have time for anything else than work, eat and sleep 😉 One day a friend of mine asked me to go and try this yoga class with her. I was in my end twenties and didn’t know anything about Yoga. I thought it must be something really boring but just for the fun of it I went. It was a Bikram Yoga class.

Bikram Yoga is a system of Yoga that Bikram Choudhury synthesized from traditional Hatha Yoga techniques and popularized beginning in the early 1970s. All Bikram Yoga classes run for 90 minutes and consist of the same series of 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises. Bikram Yoga is ideally practiced in a room heated to 105°F (≈ 40.6°C) with a humidity of 40%. – Wikipedia

After that Yoga class I didn’t know any better. I didn’t know if I liked it or not. I didn’t know if I felt any different than before, I just was surprised how hard it was, that there wasn’t any strange ‘om shanti’ singing, that I sweat like a pig and that I had sore muscles the next day, which I really liked! I didn’t go again but it stayed in my head for almost a year till something in my head and heart told me to go and try it again. I guess I felt  attracted to it because it reminded me of my Karate times. Yoga and Karate for me had something in common. It must have been this THING with the power of the mind. I went and it was a little bit better, so I went back a few days later and it felt so much better. The feeling after the class, just amazing. So light, free,peaceful and powerful at the same time. I went 3 times a week for about 3 years and then i started to try other kind of Yoga classes all araised from Hatha Yoga with lots of sun salutations. I loved it.

Why did I love it?

  • because I got the body I always wanted
  • it gave me more self-discipline
  • it showed me to know and feel my body
  • it got me to eat healthier
  • because everytime I do Yoga I go into that place. It’s peaceful, it’s now, only me without any problems at that very precise moment, which gives me love, energy,courage and strength to go back to my everyday life.

5 years after starting doing Yoga regulary I decided to do a Teacher Training. I didn’t know if I wanted to be a Yoga teacher at that time I was going through a period of grief but I thought it would be good to do, learn more about something I love, deepen my practise and see what time brings. I did the Inspya Teacher Training

RYT 200 Yoga Alliance 200 hour accreditation.  Inspya Yoga certificate  200 hour accreditation. 

It was a wonderful experience, which helped me through taugh times and at the end I started teaching and actually enjoying it very much! 2010 I moved to England and I’m not teaching at the moment but practising my own Yoga and maybe in the near future I will be teaching again.

I want to give and share, namaste
