Well after a really stressful time,i think my body has reacted to the stress by being really tired over the last 2 days.When i'm not feeling to great sometimes i will eat shit/drink/etc and then obviously your body will react.After not doing sessions,i went back to the Core last thurs and then did 4 classes in 5 days.Which were 2 cores and 2 fixes.I think i underestimate the core class,as the other classes have a different level of intensity.But as alot of the postures are on stretching your core/legs/calves/hamstrings-i have really noticed the effects over the last couple of days.Felt really tired and also think the toxins etc and are now leaving my body quicker.I think hot yoga is great for improving your diet/mind and recently,it's kept me together mentally over a difficult period.

Michele FG always says not to go at things to quickly-which is exactly what i've done/with classes/Drum practise and so i will be back in the studio tom after two rest days.When i've been in a better place mentally and physically,i've been able to do the classic class a few times a week,so i'm hoping that i can put up the intensity again  asap.As always the instruction from Nina/Sorcha/ and Lisa's has been a massive help and of a very high quality.So i will keep going and hopefully take things further physically.And will let you know my progress.

Fierce Grace update:

Monday, 9 March 2015 14:32:57 Europe/London

After being ill i decided to build up my sessions one week 2  and then the next week 3 sessions, before i went away for a break.Where on my return i do 4/5/6 classes a week.I have to say during the last few fixes i did,i had a recurrence of some hand and thumb pain.Sometimes it can be down to my mind or physical reaction by doing a posture wrong/over drumming/or stress.During the last few visits to the city studio i really appreciated Gemma-for correcting things-mels,and then Kryzstof's classes.The standard of teaching is at a really high level.And feel really fortunate to have such good instruction and direction.If your injured i really think it's worth checking hot yoga out,as the teachers will always help you with modifications.Looking forward to getting back to the studio and starting to do classes that are longer, and have more intensity.After a stressful time,doing yoga is really important for my mental health and over the next few blogs,i am looking forward to gaining positive results :)

After being really unwell for a few weeks,i decided to go back to the fix class on feb 17th,19th, and the 24th.Unfortunately i was making really good progress with classes and my drumming.But after having a virus that made me very ill,i decided to do 2 classes last week and 3 classes this week.So i eased myself back in gently.I don't think you can under estimate how powerful yoga is,and may sound a cliche',but in a hot yoga room it can definately have a massive impact if you over do it.

When i'm jungle drumming its pretty much over 10'000 hits a hour.So i've got a habit of going at things with to much intensity,and sometimes i can over do the yoga and the drumming.So today i've just done ten mins of gentle practise.And tom i will incrementally do more and go back to the fix.

I must say that the teacher on tuesdays is one of the best at fierce grace- Lisa.She is really great with posture and injuries.And also the teacher on thursdays really pushes you,through class.So back on the path,but slowly does it.And hopefully this will bring more results.

Fierce Grace 2015-Blog session 8-10

Monday, 2 February 2015 18:17:45 Europe/London

So since my last update i've done some more classes and did 4 classes in the last week.If you've ever been a addict,or your the kind of person that is all or nothing,then that is definately what i'm like.

I have down 2 fixs and 2 cores between sunday 25th and feb 1st.But also after not drumming for at least a month i completely went at it to much.And think i've now made myself abit ill and rundown.The type of drumming i do is pretty hardcore and also i play on electronic kit which is more physical due to the surface.

As always the teachers at Fierce Grace were great but was'nt really at my best last week. I forget that hot yoga and the jungle drumming is pretty hardcore on the body.Especially when you have'nt been doing it with intensity for a while.With drumming its about incrementally doing abit more everyday and resting.So i'm going to have to start slowly and build it up.After doing miles to much in the first 9/10 days.

Abit pissed off at myself but i suppose i should'nt judge and now i'm realising it's all about sustaining things over a long period of time.Still if i take the positives at least i'm drumming and wanting to go more to FG and do better with diet/exercise/drums.

Will keep the blogs going.And hopefully will feel better soon.

Fierce Grace 2015-Blog session 5-7

Monday, 26 January 2015 14:54:26 Europe/London

Well it's definately been a interesting few days.And have experienced so pretty mad emotions in the space of 3 sessions starting on friday jan 23rd.The fix was taught by Lisa Hong who is always really consistent as a teacher and pushes you well during class.Afterwards i felt pretty wound up and pissed off at myself.Especially with work stuff.So i went home and smashed the shit out of the drums for nearly 3 hours.For the first time.And really think the session released alot of anger and emotions.

Next day i went back to the fix, as i can be prone to depression at the weekends if i don't keep active,and wanted to see if it would make me feel better.On saturday the teacher was Kam,who i've never had before,i really liked his teaching style,but the heat and the session was hard work.After the session i started to feel alot happier and positive.As soon as i got back in i started drumming again.So felt back on the path.

Sunday i felt good and started the day with more drumming and practise and then went to the sunday fix with Adam.He went through the postures with good instruction,especially with the stomach crunches...which nearly wiped me out.After the class though i felt positive and went straight home and drummed.I was quite amazed at how much things had changed since friday.I'm really curious to see the effects with more classes on mind/body/drumming as maybe i will reach my goals sooner rather than later.

Also must thank the lovely Shirley,Lisa and all the staff on the front desk.So will be undertaking the classic class which i'm afraid of...later in the week.So will let you know how i get on and with my jungle drumming.
