Confessions of a Yogi


I am teaching my first 'proper' yoga class tonight and I am terrified. 
Since I qualified I have been teaching classes to staff and students at the college where I work and to the children at the school where my son teaches.
But tonight I will be charging. 
I am scared no-one will turn up. 
I am scared too many people will turn up.
I am scared I will forget my plan.
Lucky I practice yoga and I know that however scared I am, if I breathe slowly and calmly I will be OK.

The Theory of Everything




 So here it is, another New Year.
As usual we celebrated it quietly at home with a few friends and family while our four children went off to their own respective parties, coming hom at 4am, 6am, 11am and 2pm the next day!
While our children were recovering I took my my mum to see 'The Theory of Everything' and what a wonderful film it was, having me on the verge of tears several times.
I enjoyed the film so much I came home and bought the memoir by Jane Hawking on which the film is based.
It has been so long since I have immersed myself in a book not related to yoga - talking of which, I will be starting teaching a new class on Monday which I am both excited and terrified about.
I have set myself some goals for 2015 which will include lots more teaching and learning.
Have you set yourself some goals yet?
