Aloha From PadangBai Bali! Today was my first day of the ACROVINYASA yoga teacher training! BUT! before we get to that lets talk about my morning! Woke up..around 5:30 am to see the sunrise-beautiful! Then I took my first hot water shower-or at least it was hot for all of 3 minutes, hehe Then I settled in here checked my email and such and walked down to the restaurant for breakfast. I had a dragon fruit smoothie, eggs, bacon, potatoes and assorted exotic fruits! I also met some fellow trainees at breakfast, all of which were Aussies! (love em already!). We chatted for a while, got to know each other and headed down to the spa for a massage- this time I got a hot stone massage...90 minutes of perfection. After a while of swimming and hanging out by the pool me and 3 other trainees decided to venture out into PadangBai town to look for some local lunch. We walked for a bit and it seemed like we were headed in a circle until we finally decided on a cute little restaurant, I had the vegetable curry...so delicious!
We got back to The Bloo Lagoon just in time for the start of training.
Training today was absolutely wonderful. I love my teachers, Honza and Claudine! It also seems like a great group of people from all around the world and I am excited to get to know them better! There was an opening ceremony of a traditional Balinese dance which was beautiful. After that we introduced ourselves to each other and then kicked it off with a rocking first practice (just vinyasa on earth-no acro just yet!). Dinner was lovely we stayed here and I got curry once again!
During the evening session we worked on meditation and savasana, that savasana was really sweet for me, it felt like I was floating and half asleep half awake but in a perfect state of awareness and fully present.
Tomorrow the day starts at 7 am, goodnight friends! stay tuned....
xoxo pura vida!
