This adventure is over

Being back nearly a week its time for the last blog of this adventure. I integrated Ashram life and habits in my every day life after TTC last year and after ATTC I stick to it for sure. As mentioned in my starting blog Yoga messed up my life. And this experience increased it as expected ;-) . So here is my little Ashram life plan for home:

04:30 a.m. Yoga practice 1,5 hours
Morning walk with dog, trying to to walking meditation
08:00 a.m. Satsang in my car or hearing the Gita on my way to work
Lunch break, Pranayama practice and, or reach out my Yogi friends to make sure this world still exists!
Driving home chanting, happy to have a car, would be wired in a train.
06.00 p.m. Eating
Walking the dog
Teaching, practising
Working on yogarten,
10:00 p.m. sleep

While doing this I try to not forget the Atman during the day :-) and instead of cursing I chant my peace mantra. I can't walk barefoot so I wear woollen socks, yes even in the office. I also managed to sit in Lotus on my chair, when I wear skirts. When I wear pants I can practice the headstand ;-). Have not found office cloth to do both...

What is normal anyway?

But I don't care this life is so good and to previous to waste, even when I have a couple of rounds for sure!

Until we meet or meet again!

Forever a student of Yoga!

See the Ashram from heaven!

Leaving for Atlanta we flew directly over the Paradise Island. Look how pretty it is!
The cruise ships look big even from the sky...

Pancakes, Pirates and Donuts

The Bahamas are very American and I had such a good diet since my TTC that I decided to have a little taste of America. Hello Donuts, Pancakes and for the Carribean feeling I added some pirates.

Bye Ashram! Hello Transit zone!

Bliss absolute!

My diploma!

The explosion

I decided to pack during my free time. This little tent was my home for over 4 weeks, I could hear the ocean every night and will miss sleeping in it.

It is time to pack. I thought that I kept my home neat, but when I cleared everting out I discovered that I had the whole beach in my tent...

My tent and I will part on Paradise Island, it travel with me for such a long time that it will not stand European weather anymore. Hopefully it will provide a good home for a fellow Yogi.

Oral exam yes or no?

We had to wait from 3 hours if they would call us in for an oral exam! So we just waited and waited and waited.

The 3 hours passed and no one called me in, meaning I made it!!!!!  Everything falls into place like the puzzle I did before I left :)

I was "free" and I actually don't know what to do with 3 hours of free time.....

Warrior, the written exam and waiting for the results

Written exam! I got up at 03:45 a.m. and continued my studying in the temple.

We had our satsang as usual at 06.00 a.m. and at 07:15 a.m. we had our breakfast. The exam took 3,5 hours and i used every minute of it!

Now I am waiting for the result....
