While I have been back on the workday grind since Monday, the reality of life is still struggling to sink in. Don’t get my wrong, I don’t hate my job, maybe just in comparison to the alternative, but I’m finding it hard to wear regular clothes and resist the urge to spontaneously break into a yoga flow.
I’m even noticing it in my relationship with Phil. I love my fiance so much but spending a week surrounding by like minded women who support and share in my passions is hard to come back from. He asked me, as a looked at pictures my yogi family posted on social media, if my fantasy life was more interesting than my real one, and my heart wanted to scream YES!
Thats not to say my ‘real life’ isn’t appealing, because I recognize how blessed I am, but I don’t understand why I can’t have both. Why I can’t be financially successful, LOVE what I do, and be surrounded by people who share my passions?!?!?!
I have to believe the answer is I can…I just need to figure out a way! For now, I need to remember to find contentment in everyday, look for the good/love/light in every situation, and most importantly never forget that I always get to choose my attitude!
The journey has begun! I just got back from the kick off week of my Yoga Medicine 200hr Teacher Training and I am so thrilled to tell you all about it!
We spent the week in Tulum Mexico learning anatomy, asanas and the basics of teaching to lay the foundation for the next few months. Mornings were early, watching the sunshine and sipping on my breakfast…
…and days were long, filled with lectures, physical practice, partner work and meditation. My body may be sore but my heart is filled with love and inspiration from all the amazing women I spent the week with.
I can’t wait to spend the next few months growing in my personal practice and honing my teaching skills with the coolest yogi family a girl could ask for.
I hope everyone had a lovely Father’s Day weekend! My Dad’s Birthday happened to fall on Sunday this year, so we had a double celebration! The good times continued last night with the US win over Ghana (FINALLY) in the first round of the World Cup! Anyone who follows soccer knows this win is HUGE & to win in such a well played game is especially sweet!
As the title suggests, I am starting a new chapter in my holistic health and wellness journey! I enrolled in Tiffany Cruikshank’s Yoga Medicine 200Hr teacher training program for this coming fall. I applied awhile back, it was one of my action steps following the Yoga Conference in March, but I didn’t get my acceptance email until a few weeks ago! I am both excited and nervous to be starting this next chapter but I am confident if I follow my heart things will fall into place!
I am definitely stepping up my yoga game in the coming months to prepare for this fall, but that won’t keep me from open water swims, long bike rides & the interval training my body needs to stay balanced! Tonight I will be joining a client for an open water swim through French Creek Racing but not before sneaking in an interval workout in the park…wish us luck!!
