Katja has signed up for a Handstands workshop today. Three hours from 9-12 of advanced training for achieving handstands. I go to class 10-11:30 with vinyasa flow.
The workshop is full and Katja is very happy she got in. It gave her a whole lot of ideas and techniques to work on for strengthening both muscles and nervous system.
I on the other hand sweat through a class with Les. We do some core exercises that really pull on my abs. You know the muscles that’s there but rarely seen? I bet I’ll feel this tomorrow.
I finish a bit before Katja and wait for her in the cafe. I start talking with a girl across the table and we have a nice long talk with her during lunch. Bernadette from Austria is new in Ubud and we can supply some information on cafès, yoga places, coffee places and more.
We pick up the motorcycle and go for another expedition to try to get Katja’s backpack repaired. No-one we talk to are up for the task and we also see that the seams on the other strap are opening up. Tape it is then, and probably a new backpack.
We stop at Anomali for coffee and check the travel insurance for how to report the backpack issue. Suddenly the sky opens up and the rain flows freely. We noticed the change in the wind just before it happened, but are glad we’re safe and under roof.
When it ease up we get on the bike and drive down through town. Get some fruit and water at the supermarket before going back to the room. Katja gets a massage while I relax for a while. No, I did not sleep, just relaxed my face and breathing.
We walk out to get dinner at warung local where our long haired heavy loving man works. You might remember that’s where I bought their little guitar that later was given a better home with Cydel in the Philippines. But he’s out if food. It’s all gone. Noooooooo!
We go back up, get on the motorcycle and head over to the spicy rendang place. They are open as usual and we get a good meal. We also have a nice long talk about learning methodes, approaches to big challenges and more. It’s these really good talks that bonds us even closer and show the support we have for each other.
It’s time to go home and we navigate the back roads of Ubud like a native and return safely to the room. Some fruit and yogurt later it’s time to sleep. Katja will do morning flow at seven tomorrow. Early rise in other words.
You can do anything as long as you have the passion, the drive, the focus, and the support.
