It is already day three in a place I could stay for much longer. After 4 hours of strenuous yoga yesterday my body was feeling a bit like jelly. Resisted getting up this morning but wanted to see the sunrise, so up at 5:30 am for a walk to the beach with Severin. We chatted about our experiences in Kataragama in Sri Lanka. Shared Sufi stories. It was the beginning of a beautiful day watching the fishermen setting out to sea in their small boats.
Yoga has been surprisingly good. The two teachers are skilled in both ashtanga and vinyasa flow yoga, have studied extensively in India, and are very considerate of the abilities of the students. Lots and lots of chateranga dondasana and downward hanging dog stretch. When it's 30 degrees out you come out of the class drenched. Thought it might just be me but when I hugged Ryan the teacher we were both soaked through and through. Today my body felt it was letting go with the warmth and the energy was flowing freely.
After breakfast we spent time in the kitchen, with the cooks sharing their secrets of preparing coconut and daikon salad with tamarii and nutritional yeast. We helped make our lunch - nori rolls with veggies and papaya. The head cook Kim is a nutritionist from Australia who has been here a year. Lots of people come for a week and stay for a year. The place has the feel of a small Findhorn.
The afternoon was spent doing Qui Gong. Had a wonderful release and a visit from my spirit guide which was so very special.
Some time free this afternoon so I can get caught up with this blog. Here are some pictures for the day.
