When good is near you, when you have life in yourself, it is not by any known or accustomed way; you shall not discern the foot-prints of any other; you shall not see the face of man; you shall not hear any name;—— the way, the thought, the good, shall be wholly strange and new. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Can you remember a moment in your life when you had life in yourself and it was wholly strange and new? Can you remember the moment when you stopped walking a path of someone else, and started cutting your own?
Write about that moment. And if you haven’t experienced it yet, let the miracle play out in your mind’s eye and write about that moment in your future.

Breaking down to build again. Getting to the heart of the what and the why. Realizing that everything happens for a reason and trusting what’s to be.
I’m less stuck in the past than ever before. And most of that can be attributed to the teacher training program.
You never know what you are going to get out of a program until you are in over your head and give completely of yourself. I thought I was just learning to teach yoga, to share this amazing gift of mind and body exercise and connection to SELF. What I gained – and while always a work in progress – was comfort and the encouragement to let go and the reminders that no matter what, it’s OK.
Teaching yoga sometimes can feel like being an actor – not in a superficial way, but in the sense that when you walk into the room, you are ON. It’s just something about the room, the energy, the responsibility that students come to class because you make them feel better. For some, it could be the best 60 minutes of their day. And who wants to let them down?
Teaching feels natural to me. So does communications. And now I’m moving forward in both.
