Monday, October 28, 2013

For the next week, the pattern of life, will likely be the same as this day:
1.  Yoga class at 9 - 10:30
2.  Quick shower in outdoor shower
3.  Organic breakfast with smoothie of veggies and fruit  heaven!! @ 11 - 12
4.  Back to read, chill and laze
5.  Walk the beach, swim, another smoothie
6.  Shower, laze
7.  Dinner...bed! 

Stopped, yup! 

Yoga was excellent...some advanced folk from around in attendance which is awesome as it is great motivation and when uncertain, there's always someone nearby who knows what to do!  Nancy, the instructor,  is the owner's daughter - Susan is an American who has lived here for 28 years - it will be fun to get to know her - quite the character - she was glad there were a few of us "oldies" there as usually she is surrounded by these flexible gorgeous young people!  It was a thorough class - may even be a bit stiff tomorrow!  and what a different sensation doing yoga in such heat.  It is warm!!  warmer than when I did my yoga retreat in India.  Sweat pouring off both Rich and I and everyone actually!  Will be awesome to get us ready for skiing!  Wonder if I'll ever be able to do a headstand like one of these wonderful young women - HA!! 

So here's how stopped I am!!  I'm stunned at my ease to go to breakfast with wet hair and virtually no make-up!! Even wearing a rather loose little dress as who could possibly put on even a bathing suit in this heat/heated yoga body?  There isn't even a hair dryer in our room altho' I'm sure I could get one.  Too hot to use, sweaty often or wet hair from pools or sea so why bother??  AND who wants to put make up on when it's only going to melt off?  a bit of mascara and some lipstick and I'm out the door!  who would have believed I'm able to do this?  Helps that I don't know anyone - heh - Rich could care less and I'll never see these people again.  Hmmm, seems I'm not quite as free as I doth present - heh.  But it is great to feel so healthy on a holiday - my skin is like silk with all the moisture in the air and with shampoo's etc all natural, no harsh chemicals anywhere, hair is also so soft! 

So wonderful to fully entrench oneself in all this has to offer.  It will be fascinating to see and feel what this does to one mentally as well as physically.  "Re-entry" will be another curiousity!

One other "older couple" here -from Belgium - will be interesting to get to know them, if the scenario presents itself. They did yoga too and had never done yoga before! They seem like adventurers like us. I'm so curious how they found out about this place too.  Only 6 Villas - only 2 (one of them being our Villa #1) directly facing the sea - going to have to tape the music of the waves hitting the shore in order to be able to sleep once returning home....nope...not going there just yet!!
