Stop, drop and do yoga

Stop, drop and do yoga

Stop, drop and do yoga. Sorry, I don’t. I’ve been nominated on instagram a few times now, so far I haven’t done it. Up until tonight. Why? It just didn’t fit in.

I know, it only takes a few minutes to do a yoga pose. I do lots of them: between my computer work, walking from one place to another. But taking a decent photo of it (which doesn’t work with my phone), posting it on instagram, finding and tagging all the people who have tagged me, that is precious time.

I have less than three months to go here at La Mariposa. I’ve helped setting up one fundraising campaign so far, I’ve got two more to go and I’m working on a recipe book as well. That has to be my legacy when I’m leaving here: a small stream of income that keeps going. I think it’s amazing what La Mariposa does for the community of San Juan de la Concepcion here in Nicaragua and I like to add a little bit to it. Some little extra income that will keep on going. A little footprint, consisting of a big photo archive, some movies that will attract/convince even people to come to La Mariposa and some money coming in as a result of fundraisers.

It means my time is limited. I started this trip to do my own yoga again and I do. Every morning I get up at 5 o’clock and do yoga, pranayama and meditation till 7.15 o’clock. In the afternoon I either do some abs and push ups or practice some acroyoga with Ryland and before I go to bed I do a little zeven minute cyclus Mark got my hooked on, using a seven minute app during our travels through Nicaragua. In between I hope to write a bit for the manual I’m making for the Teacher Training Course I will give in Budapest January next year, I blog and I try to study some Spanish and read a bit in a yoga book. So dropping and stopping doesn’t always fit; even for a few minutes.

But I hope the challenge keeps on going, because the more awareness, the more yoga the more beautiful this world will be. I’m convinced of that. So I might not have stopped, but I’ve dropped and here is my yoga shot: a nice little lotus headstand to open up the lower back and hips.
