Hello lovely readers – I know I’ve been neglecting you, and for that, I apologize. I’ve decided to just go with the flow in life right now, and not stress about things that are out of my control…including being busy. I just couldn’t get to the blog, but I’m not going to feel badly about that – I’m just going to let it go. Que Sera Sera.
On the upside, a huge chunk of me being too busy to blog in the last little while is actually WONDERFUL news: I was away from home for six days in a row, and part of that was my very last weekend of Yoga Teacher Training. That’s right, my LAST weekend. I did my teaching practicum on Saturday, and it went very well…so I’m actually a yoga teacher now! Do you know how exciting that is for me? I still have to do my written exam, but I’m not worried about that, especially since the practical part is out of the way. Huge sigh of relief!
Completing the Yoga Teacher Training over the last 5 months has been one of the best things that has ever happened in my life. I learned a lot about myself, improved my yoga practice in leaps and bounds, and made some wonderful friends. There is talk of a 500 hour certification (another 300 hours on top of the 200 I’ve already done, with a lot of specialty training and master teacher shadowing) with the same group next year, and I’m pretty sure I’ll take the training if I can make it work within the context of my life. It was honestly such a beautiful journey with an incredibly beautiful group of people.
In other yoga news, I have completed Day 6 of a 30 day yoga challenge. Today wasn’t a full on practice, but I did manage about 25 minutes of Sun Salutations followed by some seated postures and a brief Savasana, so it still counts. It will be tough for me to fit in a yoga practice each day, but I think it’s a committment worth making time for, especially since every other facet of my life has been spinning so wildly out of control lately. Yoga and running are the only things keeping me sane and grounded lately, so I plan to make time for them amidst the chaos – I deserve that!
Anyway, it’s midnight and I have to teach an early morning circuit class in 6 hours, so I guess it’s bed time! I guess it’s a good thing I’m getting in the yoga, since I’m definitely NOT getting in the sleep…
