Yoga in the Wilderness

There’s no Internet connection (which I love and hubby hates). There’s barely any cell phone connection – it’s one of those “if you’re at the right place at the right time, you might be able to get a connection!” There isn’t even any TV – well, you can’t get any channels but there’s a DVD player so you can watch DVDs.

It’s absolute bliss. We can all do whatever we want to and be as sociable or unsociable as we want to be.

For me, it’s a great time to relax and catch up on my reading. For hubby, it’s fishing with his siblings and their kids. For Mumsie, it’s relaxing, reading, and taking leisurely walks with my mother-in-law.

Last year, I took along a Yoga DVD so that I could continue my regular practice. When I put the DVD on, my nieces decided they wanted to do some yoga too and we all had a great time. In fact, my 15-year-old niece went back and took some classes. However, as is usual with teenagers, once she completed the sessions, she drifted on to something else. No matter – at least I’ve planted the seed and I suspect that she’ll return to it someday.

But I digress (as usual). This year, I forgot to take the DVD along but it wasn’t a big deal as I wasn’t planning on doing any physical yoga because of my cracked rib.

But yoga found me anyway.

I’ll tell you all about it in my next blog.
