The morning starts with 1/2 hour meditation followed by playful yoga for one hour. The teacher – Baba – is very funny and helpful. This morning’s class we reviewed the previous days work.
I admitted to my partner that I had a biopsy and had not told anyone or spoken about it since I left. They old me that their grandmother had passed three days prior. We shared stories, built trust, relaxed and felt better. We share a good practice.
After the morning practice we went over some of the moves that were more difficult. Khao ran over my feet-cheeky little dog.
The people on the land say she will probably only live a few months because no one owns her and when we leave the locals will probably eat her.
p.s. there are no drains in the toilet or shower floors, the water that misses the toilet travels toward the river. The whole structure is slanted for this to occur. Its kind of gross to walk through so I wash my feet after and plan to get sandals in town on Saturday.
Sometime this morning I finally arrived. All the headaches and body pains evaporated. Thank God! Its so beautiful here. I’m getting more and more adventurous as time passes. Planning a fire show. Everyone is so patient and forgiving of one another – I think it has something to do with the language differences. All conversations are slower, much slower than at home. I love body workers too they are very conscientious of their touch and in general more gentle.
I am so grateful to Arno today, his knowledge and expertise is so valuable, totally worth the price of admission.
