world's worst yogini


Ok. I know I didn't keep my promise about writing regulary, but it's gonna change. As one of my yoga teachers suggested, this year (the year I'm learning about yoga and attending my teacher training) is gonna be a year only for me. As I dont write my journal as I should, this will be my way of keeping notes.

First, few things about me and yoga:
  •  I am extremly lazy when it comes to self-practice...I love to practice, I really do. But aduring my dancing days I got used to having people around me while practicing and it feels weird doing it at home, alone, with no one to tell me if I do my positions the right way. So, as in my TT I have to develop self-pracite, I'va managed to do it max 2-3 times per week. I know, I'm a poor yogini :(
  • The thing that kept me in yoga is the way that you always have something to aspire to. And the feeling when you do the position you haven't done before is like a drug to me
  • I like the way yoga made me more self-concious...although I think I am still at the beginning of my yoga path, i've already felt some improvements. 
  • Meditation - for me, it's the worst thing. Or is it the chanting? I dunno....Every time I try to meditate, I become nervous. No matter how many times I try, it just doesnt work for me. And chanting - me singing in front of the people, no way. Om is just fine :)
  • Not a vegetarian, not a vegan. As much as most of the yoginis avoid meat, I have to say it I love it. Junk food included.
So, considering all of the above, I might just be a worlds worst yogini...But I don't care. And nobody else should, because that's the true beauty of yoga - it is what you want it to be :)

    Watched Lost yesterday, had to catch up....Although I am currently following way too much TV series (Gossip Girl, Grey's Anatomy, Private practice, HIMYM and Lost), Lost fever hasnt stopped yet. I mean, who can resist half naked men wondering around the beach all the time?? But thats not all...despite Sawyer and his comments being my favourite on the show (who can resist a bad guy with a good heart, his sexy look and dirty mind, LOL), I find some comfort in looking them all stumble acros that island for 6th season already (read: other men are also not bad at all, heheh). It had some ups and downs, but still, its gotten to be one of my top 10 series all the time.

    And when it ends...maybe I'll start from the begginig :))

    weekend getaway

    Had a bit of a trip for a weekend. My boyfriend had some work to do down at the coast, so we decided to go together and visit some friends. It was so relaxing, just walking by the sea, drinking coffie in the sunny terrace and breathing in the special scent of small coastal towns. Although it was just for a day and a half, I had a feeling we were there for at least four days. Its interesting how just a little getaway can make you feel so fresh and happy again. It was also nice hanging with old friends. Although they are the two most work addicted and devoted people I know, still we had a laugh on academic life and costant learning you're forced to do when you're in that fields.

    what makes you happy?

    Since I have been feeling pretty down last few months, I've started a therapy on myself. I think about the things that maje me happy and I'm really trying to think of myself as a happy person. So, here are some of the things that make me smile, bring me joy and make me happy...what about you?
    -  hot cup of coffie early in the morning (if the occasion allows, with my boyfriend)ine
    -  a girls talk
    -  casual afternoon sitting outdoors reading a magazine
    -  dancing the night away
    -  good-mornig and good-night kisses from my darling
    -  summer holidays....everything about them (swimming, sunbathing, evening walks by the sea,  cocktails...)
    -  travelling
    -  sunny days when it's enough just to walk outside and feel the sun on your skin
    -  ice-cream and cakes (it always works...especially the ice-cream)
    -  a good workout after which you feel so tired, but your body feels soo good :)
    -  getting a small gift of a surprise
    -  reading a really good book
    -  watching my favourite tv show with a glass of wine and snack
    -  family gatherings (but not if they're too often)
    -  when he looks at me like I'm the only girl in the world
    -  pets (especially my weird persian kitty)
    -  just hangin' out with my girls
    -  bithdays
