has it really been 25 days !

That really is unbelievable....its been 25 days since my last post
January was just coming to an end...and in the blink of an eye its now nearly the end of February.... )

This month has been equally as crazy as last month.
So last week was my 1st class ( I say class it was actually me stepping in for someone to do the meditation at the end of a class )  thats another blog

3!!!!  of my grandchildren had birthdays in february  you would have thought the mothers could have been a bit more considerate 😉

Still persevering with my new job ( 6 weeks now )

Am over the moon as I submitted my 1st yoga paper and passed, thank the Lord!  I did put an absurd amount of work i and was quite often burning the midnight oil writing, but so thrilled to see it pay off, 3 to go and 2 exams to sit, no pain no gain!!!!

Have my 1st 'proper yoga class ' to teach next week.  yes very nervous.  but its got to be done.

focusing on my classes, body balance mainly,  (I need it for my sanity)

Also just started a daily yoga regime at home ( vinyasa flow ) 6 days in ...phewwwww

Feeling exhausted, but in a good way ( i think 😉)
Thank you for joining me on my journey

Namaste

Mad January

Wow what a Mad start to the year...and I can not believe January 2018 is nearly gone....
and what a month it has been 

Me passing my yoga instructor practical ( now that was intense)
Glad that is finished...or may be I should say just beginning ( my journey that is....)

And just typical of me...I decided to get back into the world of optics...
( I am doing a couple of days for my cousins boss!!! )
So getting refreshed in that has been somewhat time consuming....( 3rd week in and Im beginning to get back into it )

And on top of that trying to get my 16 yr old settled into an apprenticeship ( because if I dont...he wont!!!  )

And then theres my other 4 children who also want a bit of me...especially that daughter 😉😉

And not forgetting the 8 granchildren.......

Oh yes and I just remembered......( my lovly husband needs a little bit of my time 💖💖)

Wow...thats a lot of hrs in the day

And then of course I have to 'fit' 😉  in my classes  ( body balance, yoga, gym sessions.....and a new one for this year BODY PUMP💪💪💪

And when I look at it like that no wandered Im looking exhausted !!!!!!

its been a good start to 2018 ( if not a little tiring )

Thank the Lord for it..

Am I glad to get that out of the way

Yoga Practical Assessment Looming...And breathe

Its fair to say that I love yoga, but I'm guessing you know that from my blogs
But this last 6 months have really challenged me, in every sense..
6 months preparing for my practical exam ( to enable me to instruct a class ) eat breathe and sleep yoga 
which as we all know does not make me an expert...far from it

So the day Arrived, the day I had been dreading since I was given my assessment date ( 6 months ago ) and I was really nervous.
The idea of teaching a group of strangers was very scary.
I thought I had gone over every single thing, checking paperwork, obtaining all relevant equipment ( blocks straps mats etc ) making sure my journal was up to date, ensuring water was available, AND, practising my routine til I really couldnt remember wether I was on my right or left side.
I must of gone over everything 100 times!!!!

It didnt start well,  How ever I managed it I will never know ( I had forgot an essential piece of coursework! how could that be? ) The worst possible scenario had showed itself!!!!

So my assessor  advised me to complete it there on the day, (how could I do that) which was not just stressful but really annoying because I wasnt able to do it to my standard, but I had to submit it or fail, before I'd even started
And all that achieved was to make me even more stressed...arghhhh

I did my practical ( even though I just wanted to run and hide myself, somewhere I found the strength and calm to complete it )
No it wasnt how I would have liked it to have been, but I did it
~He wasnt going to give me a pass~
no way...but hey I gave it my best shot

I was invited in to speak to my assessor and get my feedback, he said he knew I had had a stressful day ( tell me about it ) he asked me several questions about my class and how I would progress it ( which really irritated me, because what did it matter if I hadnt passed?)

 Well....I could have 'pee'd my pants'
'I'm pleased to tell you that you have passed' he said
Well I nearly PASSED OUT!!!!  My eyes leaked too!!!!
I didnt know wether to cry or hug him  ( so I did both........ )

( its fair to say that on the day when it mattered I had a lot of support from my class mates and my assessor.....)
thank the Lord ( and may be a little bit of yoga 😉) for the strength I found to get me through it....

And breathe........
