Just back from my first yoga class in India . Can you see the headland in the image attached .....cause that is where the class is. I have been looking every day at the yoga sign up on the rocks opposite the shed on stilts we are staying in . The fact that you can walk across the small beach cove and up to the perfectly located platform on the headland surrounded by coconut palms over looking the sea should make it easy to go to a class but the lathargy that comes with 45 degrees of heat knocks all “good thoughts” into “couldn’t be bothered thoughts” .
Today, I made myself go to the 8 am class and I am only sorry I did not go on day one . The views of the sea and the coast line are breathtaking fromup here and worth the effort of setting the alarm .
Raja starts the class with relaxtion and we have to listen to the birds in the trees and the sound of the sea washing up on the beaches below all under the swaying coconut palms .
We start to do the stretching and as we move further into the class the poses get more adventures and I curses myself for having lashed on lots of sun cream before I left the hut . My hands keep sliping and the grace and poise I try so hard to exude is failing me rapidly !
Sweaty , rejuvinated and ready for breakfast I head back to the three snoozers in the shed and make a promise to myself to do it all again tomorrow .
