My month of yoga began with a busy brain and a funky hip.bigstock_Expert_Yoga_Pose_3644364

A month a go I was feeling a bit out of whack. My brain was full of chaos, bouncing around multiple projects, running my own business and not being able to switch off – especially at bed time. Ugh.  I have a chronic problem with my hips/pelvis and when I don’t exercise enough it hurts and if I do too much of some things it hurts. I needed balance.

“Whose idea was it to go bush walking?” I said as I huffed and puffed my way up a steep incline…. oh yeah, mine!

My fiancee suggested we take a trip to the blue mountains, I said great let’s go walking. I thought I need to exercise and I have my expensive hiking boots that lay idle most of the year in my closet, lets do it!

Up until two weeks ago i’m embarrassed to say it had been nearly three years since I had done a Pilates class. I have always recommended Pilates and Yoga to my clients as I truly believe they are of great benefit to the body. The only problem for me was I wasn’t good at it.  I’d tried a few classes and DVDs in the past but didn’t commit which I have always regretted.

This mother’s day was particularly special. I had a great group of people join me for the Mother’s day Classic which is a fun run/walk to raise money for breast cancer.

“Float like a buttefly, sting like a bee…” or at least just try to keep up and keep breathing!

It had been a while since I had been on the attacking side of boxing. I’ve been receiving punches from clients for a while… I decided it was my turn.

Beware – once you try Indoor Rock Climbing you will not want to stop. I had the bruises to prove it!

I had always wanted to try rock climbing, but was too chicken to try.
I imagined gripping for life onto little plastic shapes on the wall and falling to my doom, or at least a very hard surface!
But that was then and this is now. Now I jump at trying new things.

Who would have thought a sweat box could be so relaxing!
