You can't completely prepare and plan your way through life, if you honestly believe that you can, congratulations, you have a ridiculously predictable life. I'm not sure if I should be happy for you or sorry, because with the lack of unpredictability, how can you truly grow beyond your comfort zones?
Does this sound like bull to you?
Well, if it does, sorry. Because this theory is essentially the culmination of my life experiences up until this point. And while, there are certainly parts/moments of it that I wish I could go back and correct or "do better", this is my life as it is and I would not be the person that I am without it.
Moving from this point, I am branching out and move into another area of life that I am both scared and excited to pursue, I have gone back to school and am trying to make a go of my yoga business. While I fear I could fail, the act of not trying to do it is even more unnerving. While I am no new version of Baron Baptiste, I hope to provide students and clients with genuine care and attention as a yoga therapist and teacher. I know that through my own experience that rest, relaxation, and gentle asana can prove far more healing than a vigorous heated practice, if you are only open to receiving it. Countering and finding balance between our heating and cooling practices is something that I have become more willing to accept. I sincerely realize that those little warning signs or red flags that we can either ignore or pay attention to is a skill that I’m still working on honing and would like to help others reap the benefits of becoming more intuitive to their self-care needs. I hope that my personal lessons in finding appropriate self-care and continuing to work through challenges can help in making me more connected to my students. I understand that for many issues there may be quick solutions and also choices that take more time and effort to work through. My goal is to be available to provide people going through medical issues the assistance to know that yoga is available to them and that through yoga therapy the practice can be uniquely catered to their needs.
