Yoga Focus

So.....bad news. My trainer has moved onto another gym to take a better paying job, so that concludes my personal training. Oh well. That's focus had shifted for a short while there away from excelling in my yoga practice to rising up to the many challenges put before me by my trainer instead. It wasn't counter productive, but I wasn't as yoga focused as I should have been. Now that he's out of the way, I can realign my focus once more.

And wouldn't you know it.....the timing of things couldn't be more uncanny! Here's what I'm talking about:

My trainer moves onto his new job last Thursday and that same night I was at a going away party with my friends and and we were discussing our exercise regimes and I mentioned how much I enjoy yoga and do it as much as possible to which my friends suggested that I should be a yoga instructor. Only two days later, I received an email from my friend Larissa, who is a yoga instructor at Kripalu Health and Wellness Center in Lenox MA asking me if I could come up and be her assistant for a workshop this coming weekend. I won't be helping to teach any yoga classes as I have no certification, but I will be helping to greet guests and hand out pamphlets, etc. I do get to have access to all the yoga classes, free room and board for the weekend and get to attend the evening concerts at Tanglewood. I've been toying with the idea of becoming an instructor for a while, I'm just not sure when I would find the time to become certified. Perhaps this weekend will show me a way.

I'm really excited to see where this adventure leads me.

Until next time......
