On Wednesday evening I headed to RADA studios in central London for my first ever Kundalini yoga class. One of my 25 Things Before 25 was to go to a yoga class and I was inspired to try Kundalini yoga after falling in love with yoga a few years ago, alongside hearing the effects of Kundalini specifically could be similar to Ayahuasca.
During my time in Peru, I met a lot of people who had taken Ayahuasca and had incredible experiences. Others, not so great. I passed on doing an Ayahuasca retreat whilst away as I actually don’t think I’m mentally strong enough to cope with vomiting, intense hallucinations or potentially life altering revelations . Some of you may call me boring, I like to think of myself as sensible.
Today I start my first 25 things challenge, 30 days of meditation!
My brain is a very busy (crazy) place and sometimes I struggle to switch off.
I have read book after book on mindfulness, meditation and how to use yoga to quieten your mind. I’m so well informed but thoughts of what I ate for dinner or how much I want to go to Nepal still seem to plague me on a daily basis.
This morning I had the terrifying realisation that I am turning 25 next year. Whilst I obviously know how old I am, I have never really considered how close I am to the dreaded mid-twenties, and I think it’s safe to say that if anyone is going to have a quarter life crisis, it’ll be me.
But, being the optimistic girl that I am, I swiftly wrote myself a bucket list of 25 things I want to do before I’m 25. I turn 25 in September 2017, and I am feeling confident that a new me is just around the corner.
