Returning to India in half a year

Returning to India in half a year time

‘Life is what is happening to you while you are busy making other plans.’ John Lennon couldn’t be more right, when he sang this line in his song Beautiful Boy. I think I missed a lot of opportunities in my life, because I was busy doing other things or was busy making other plans. Now I let life take me wherever it wants and somehow that is India. I’m here now and I’ll be returning to India at the end of this year. Again to teach at Sampoorna Yoga.

I wasn’t suppose to be here anymore. I was suppose to be in the Netherlands, preparing for a Yoga Teacher Training Course (TTC) in Budapest next month, but that TTC got postponed to September opening up the opportunity for me to stay longer. I also wasn’t suppose to teach at the TTC here. I came out to be a karma yogi and teach some drop-in classes and do some photography and make a few videos. But for some reason I was added to the TTC 200 hour team. I helped out as a karma yogi on the TTC 300 team and got asked to teach on that team as well, alongside amazing teachers as Rachel Berryman and Nadine Sharkey.

The reviews where good, so I’ll be returning to India at the end of this year. Didn’t planned it, just happened. I like it though. It gives me the chance to teach anatomy, vinyasa flow, acro yoga, Thai yoga massage, teach yogis how to be a good yoga teacher and make sequences and help yoga teachers to become even a better teacher than they already are.

The road

It’s a bit how my life is since I hit the road in October 2014. I let the road take me wherever it wants and have ended up and worked in some pretty cool places, like Meditation Garden Costa Rica and Pure Yoga in Nicaragua. Places I definitely want to go back to.  If and when? That’s on the road to decide.

Over the last couple of months my schedule has changed a few times. I can’t be bothered with it. I’m living in the moment, taking things as they come along. I’m trying not to plan too much anymore. I trust that the things that are meant to come on my path, will come on my path. So far they are way better that what I could have planned myself. So why make plans again? I am just going to let life happen to me.
