I remained committed to Kickboxing, Yoga and Swimming and I am at the moment working on and struggling with a morning practice. I have been working on my breathing techniques and exercises to fell my body with life giving and calming breath. Next challenge: Eating well for my body.

This year I've learned to how it is to become more intimate in my yoga practice – we all know that yoga is much more than making shapes, but when the actual internal realisation happens, everything changes.
