mo farah the cube

The formula for a perfect, balanced, chilled-out Saturday is pretty simple: Embrace the summer monsoon with this Gange-a-Midi track. / Practice 90 mins of yoga with Jessica, followed by 90 mins of Thai massage basics with Rob and Casi. / Purchase 1 serving of cold, refrigerated Vita Coco and thank god you finally love coconut water and thus, feel normal. / Come up to the Stricklands, home away from home away from home… / Show Gracie some tricks of the trade… I have to say, it is friggin awesome and inspiring seeing a 7-yr-old do half of the Dharma II stuff I would normally teach in class! Crow to headstand included! Honestly, if I’d started this young… … I would’ve probably been taken off the planet by now. / Witnessing Mo Farah beat The Cube… WITH 6 LIVES LEFT! What a legend. Really, truly, made of gold! / Master Sun said: ‘Know the enemy, Know yourself, And victory Is never in doubt, Not in a hundred battles.’ He who knows self But not the enemy Will suffer one defeat For every victory. He who knows Neither self Nor enemy Will fail In every battle. – #futureplanning – comp analysis. Status: complete. Sweet. =)

Sri Dharma once said that in many ways, New York – or any big city for that matter – is the best place to learn yoga. Why? Because it’s so much easier to focus, lead a good life, keep clean, resist temptation when you are living in an ashram in the middle of nowhere. It’s when you go back to city life or the ‘real world’ that you are truly put to the test. How long, how much, can you maintain your focus? How solid is your conviction? More and more I believe the greatest test… is how to stay focused on the truth when your biggest fear and distraction is staring you in the face… “Be the bigger person,” it whispered, “And remember that home is inside your heart.” – Thanks. I’m grateful I stayed silent enough to hear this today. / Sue chat. Kan chat. Kat chat. – what a tongue twister. lol. thanks guys. miss and love you loads! / This.

Glad I got to do my yoga demo today… and that it didn’t turn out like this! =p / London Pleasure Gardens – perfect weather for it! What an awesome way to spend the day with the boys =) / Shaun, what can I say. It was sooo nice seeing you today! It has been way too long. And honestly… I cannot wait til you take me up on a plane!! Super excited and super chuffed! Oh man, this takes road trips to a whole new level! =O =D / Andres… you’re not too bad yourself! =p Especially when you’re knackered! haha / Brick Lane curries = YUM! / The Five-Year Engagement… so long, you actually feel their pain! On purpose? I hope so! At least the ending and intermittent laughter made up for it! 😉 x

Day 340 – The day I become a fully certified and registered Dharma Yoga Teacher… There are no words, except: so incredibly honoured, and so, so grateful. Let the journey begin… =) =) =) / I may have gotten straight A’s and a First Class Honours degree from Goldsmith’s… but can I just say… this certification has been more invaluable and is worth so much more than any one of those things. And I mean that from the bottom of my heart. / T-Rex Trying to me is like what the Bunny Suicide cartoons are to other people… addictive! It’s crazy how hard this makes me laugh. If I had wallpaper made out of T-Rex Trying images… I swear I would wake up laughing for the rest of my life… What a GREAT idea… Actually… I’m gonna go print some out now… / This scene from Meet the Robinsons… well, let’s just say it is a continuation of my joy =p / Doodles Anonymous… can’t even remember how I found it… but I’m glad I did =) Note to self: must draw more. My response: ok. when are you going to give me time to draw? – Darn, I guess I can appreciate these for now 😉 x

This was me and Kat this evening during her one-on-one private yoga session =p But in all honesty, am grateful I finally got her onto a mat and under my spell for an hour… Just kidding. She came of her own accord. And I’m grateful for that =) / Honestly, in absence of a proper masseuse… you gotta be grateful for these yoga blocks! They are so damn nifty! – again, demo of Kat and me rolling desperately on top of our yoga blocks, trying to knead out all the tight muscles in our backs while watching… ummm… *clears throat* nothing in particular… / Mark and Will, thanks much for taking time to go on the call today. Much appreciated and very excited. #futureplanning steaming ahead! Ace! x

Today, I spent the whole day finishing off my yoga internship requirements and homework, while listening to the most amazing rendition of Switchfoot’s “Dare you to move” by The Violin String Quartet… This will always be one of my favourite songs… And this instrumental version of it just… takes my breath away. Very happy today, and very grateful =) x / Who knew shredding vegetables could be so much fun!! Why did I not think of this before??? SO. YUM… NOM! =D / PS – remember this film? Yea… long time ago huh? =) x
