It is day one of our detox. It has been easier than I imagined. We woke up and were promptly given a funny looking yellow concoction. All I know is that it had turmeric, cayenne pepper, garlic and ginger. Maybe a tiny bit of juice but over the top of the rest of the ingredients you can’t taste the juice. Our next meal is a green juice and then we are off to yoga. The yoga instructor is from Cape Town and he is very spiritual. I get back into my flow. I haven’t really ventured back to yoga since Hamish. For some reason I wasn’t called to go back yet. I wanted to know my body was ready. I feel ready now and the class today felt really good.
Two more juices and a coconut later we are invited to do a Muay Thai boxing class with a world champion. I think why not, give it a go. Greg, myself and our new friend Tabatha head to the class. The boxer is in combat mode as he begins the class. The warm up was fast. Within ten minutes I was kicking the boxer and punching and learning all the stances. It is different to normal boxing. You are moving around with your back foot half off the ground ready to pounce at all times. I have to say I actually felt scared half way through. The boxer started yelling ‘front kick’ ‘front kick’. I couldn’t get what he was saying through his accent. Then Greg yells.. ‘FRONT KICK’. I’m like ahhhhh ok and I kick him with all that I’ve got. One hour later and we finish sparring with a world champion. Let’s just say that might be the first and last time I do Muay Thai!
Hamish thanks for always being there for me
