Do you feel it? The winds of change are blowing - maybe it's a whisper of a breeze OR maybe it's gale force winds - each of us will experience it differently. But, it's there.
Lately I have been feeling this growing shift in my perspective. I have been asking myself, what do I really want? What do I stand for? What is my truth and am I living it in all the ways I can? Where do I want my path to lead ultimately? What will make me feel fulfilled and happy?
These are hard questions, I admit. I am struggling to define what it is I want to be and do and that takes a lot of meditation, breath and asking lots of challenging and deep questions.
As I dive headlong into preparing for next year - planning, creating, organizing and scheduling - I have seen a not so subtle change in my path. This journey I am on is about to take a new and dramatic turn.
"You can't change what's going on around you until you start changing what's going on within you." Unknown
One of the biggest shifts is in my personal yoga and meditation practices. I am desiring more and more depth and meaning to my life and to what I offer others. I want to explore more of the beauty and philosophical teachings of yoga and meditation as well as Traditional Chinese Medicine and I want to share that with you.
I feel this is a natural transition - as I learn and grow, I want to offer more and different things to the world. When I began yoga, it felt natural to focus on the physical body only (after all, that is what we begin working with) but as my practice has grown, I have felt the need to go a little further each year.
This coming year I will begin offering practices on the 8 Limbs of Yoga, the seasons, the Solstices/Equinoxes, full length pranayama practices, Ayurveda, and even more on 5 Element Theory. I am SO excited to explore yoga in more depth with you and to offer you practices to take off the mat and into your daily life.
I feel as if I am stepping out of my comfort zone and embracing my future. I have SO many plans for online programs, courses and even Yin Yoga in person training (maybe even a weekend retreat!) and I hope you will join me in 2020.
What way will your journey take you this coming year? What are your dreams?
See you on the mat my friends!

I have been "playing" and experimenting with yoga, aromatherapy and healthy living since my late teens - researching, testing, reading, investigating, and learning anything that would make my life - and the lives around me - better naturally.
