I hope your Saturday has been great so far. My yoga class this morning was amazing. A girl called Philippa was teaching today and she was absolutely brilliant! It was my favourite yoga class I’ve had ever. I’m really considering starting to go to her classes because she was just incredible. They are five pounds per session at Dance Glasgow in the West End.
It’s funny, two years ago I would never have thought that I would become a yoga person. I just never really understood what people loved about it. Probably because I had never tried it properly. Then I tried Bikram yoga for a month and fell in love. After my month trial I unfortunately couldn’t afford it anymore, Bikram yoga is expensive… It’s also incredibly time consuming as the class is 1.5 hours and you need to wash your hair after every class since you are soaked in your own sweat. So it would probably be three hours of your day. So I stopped and put my yoga interest on hold.
A year later I went to yoga with Jamie’s mum in Spain and that’s where I realised how much I’d missed it. It’s so challenging and relaxing at the same time. For a person like me who never stops thinking, planning ahead and who goes to bed with a million thoughts in my head every evening, it’s amazing to have an hour where you put everything on paus. Going to the gym sort of helps but yoga is even better. It’s my hour of relaxation. I love the feeling of pushing myself but in a different way from a regular workout. That’s probably why I loved Philippa’s class so much today as it was more physically challenging.
Anyway, the rest of my day flew by! Filming went better than I thought and it was amazing seeing everyone again after the summer. I’m hoping I can get involved with the charity fashion again! It was definitely the highlight of uni life last year. Afterwards I met Jamie quickly for a juice at Juice Garden before he had to head to work.
As soon as I got home I put on my comfiest clothes and now I’m sitting in the living room just relaxing and doing some work whilst throwing some washes on. Just the fun usual stuff…
Have a fantastic evening everyone and make the most of it, whether it is having a film marathon or going out partying. It’s Saturday night after all! xx
