I’m dropping in for my monthly post I probably say this every time, but I can’t believe
it’s been a month since I last checked in. I have less than two weeks left of yoga teacher training–the last eight weeks have been the fastest and at times the most challenging weeks of my life! I definitely have mixed emotions that the end is in sight. I’ll be sad not to see my yoga friends for 15-hours a week, but I’ll be happy to have some time back in my life!
The last few
weeks of curriculum has been intense. We are talking about finding connection with students and exploring the emotions that are common to everyone. When we can look at these feelings/emotions and expose our vulnerability to others, we find the deepest human connection. Last night’s session was all based on Brene Brown’s work on shame and I found it so fascinating. Email or message me if you want some specifics, I think some of the work and exercises can be truly life changing.
The final weeks will involve a workshop on assisting and a ton of practice teaching and I’m really excited to see what’s in store!
In other news, we welcomed a new family member into our home…IVY!
She is equal parts sweetheart and hellion! It just so happened that she sort of fell into our laps and I have to say that it’s been great. There’s definitely some “second child syndrome” going on–I realized that I’ve only taken four (yes, FOUR!) pictures of her in the three weeks we’ve had her-gotta work on that.
And I’ll leave you with a few of my favorite things of late:
And since this is a fitness blog, I’ll leave you with a workout that I put my FITC-ers through a few weeks ago and just did myself last week. This one was a doozy!
Have a fabulous day and catch up with you soon!
Taking time to truly care for yourself will enable you to better care for others. This can be as simple as taking a bath, going for a walk/run, buying yourself flowers, or going to a yoga class. Make sure you are doing it just for you!
