Sun Set Costa Rica: I just put a lot of life in my years

A lot of life in my years

Back in Costa Rica. Finally. I was going to be here about two weeks ago, but sometimes things happen. Now I’m ready for a new part of my journey. In the Netherlands we have a standard answer/saying when people ask you: How are you doing? That answer is: Het gaat zijn gangetje, which means as much as: things go the way they go. Being on the road things almost never go the way they go. Life is always happening. I think Nathan Quinn says it best when he tries to describe his travellings: ‘I just put a lot of life in my years’.

I planned to be in Costa Rica ten days ago, leaving Nicaragua straight after the last workshop I gave at Pure Yoga in Granada. But like I said: sometimes things happen. I was doing handstands in the pool at Oasis, she walked in. She planned to stay a day or two in Granada, she stayed two weeks. I planned to stay up until the day after my workshop, I stayed two weeks.

Granada wasn’t planned at all actually. I was suppose to teach at La Mariposa, but bad energies made me leave earlier. So I went to Granada for a couple of days, walked in the Chocolate Hotel to do a yoga class and before I knew it was asked to teach an Acro Yoga workshop. They tipped me to visit Pure Yoga and before I knew it, I was going to teach one at Pure as well.

After that first visit I would walk over to Pure Yoga a few times a week to do some Acro Yoga training with April, the fiancee of the owner, who wants to set up an Acro Yoga community in Granada. I went just to play up until I would leave, now I will return and train there three weeks full on Acro, before I head back to the Netherlands.

Seven months have past since I left. My schedule has changed so many times since. I am trying not to make one anymore, trying to let the road (and my heart) take me where it wants, but sometimes I have to plan. Yoga teacher trainings, Yoga retreats, they all have to be scheduled at least half year in advance. So when I’m asked to teach, I do say yes. But for the rest, I try to plan as less as possible. Live free, see what happens and just put a lot of life in my years.
