yoga & your esthetician

hey everyone ... it's official! i am now a certified 200-hour level vinyasa yoga teacher.  i honestly had so much fun during this training.  most of you know how fascinated i am by the body and especially the mind/body connection. so, much of the training seemed like play time.

plus, my teacher, Liz Arch, put together a superbly organized course. each session built perfectly on the last, just like the smooth alignment found in building a yoga pose from the ground up (root down through your feet, stack hips over knees over ankles, lengthen your tailbone toward the ground ...and on up through the crown of the head).

many of you have asked "what's next?"

i am very happy to say i love my job!  so, right now, nothing will change.

i do very much want to teach and share the beauty & power of yoga as well as be of service  ... so, stay tuned! i might email or post a Sunday or Monday class here.  as my teaching confidence and skills develop, perhaps i will find a more consistent class to teach.

until then, i highly recommend my teacher, Liz! her classes are a lot of fun ... tough but fabulously sequenced. here's a link to her schedule.

also, i practice at Red Diamond Yoga and love all the teachers there ... including Liz and Sheryl, the owner.  check out their schedule.

and, yes, i'm still lifting weights and attempting pull-ups at DogTown CrossFit. you can always meet me there! i'm doing my very first CrossFit Open this year ... yikes!

all this typing about yoga & CrossFit has me wondering ... what do you do to move your body? what is your favorite type of workout?  do you have any questions for me about yoga?

leave a comment here, shoot me an email or i'll see ya at be well {groomed!} / Studio 41 at SalonRepublic!

PS: how awesome is that beach picture of my yoga class & me? Robert Sturman's photography is gorgeous and will rock your soul. Go, see!

PPS:  thank you for your kind patience while i was away for teacher training. you can always see my travel schedule {here} and book your own appointment {here}.

thank you & update from the vinyasa yoga teacher training

helloooooooo from my vinyasa yoga teacher training experience!

i have been thinking about you all ... how much i appreciate your patience and support while i'm away, earning my 200 hour vinyasa yoga teacher certification.  your enthusiastic emails & texts make my heart swell ... thank you thank you thank you!

i'm having a blast ... and it's a lot of work!  so many times of thought of a specific pose for this dear client or a point in our chakra & energy discussion for another. i'm continually amazed how synergistically life flows.

i'll be back in the studio on February 3 and you can make appointments by clicking {here!}.  i am also considering fun ways to share my experience and yoga training so ... stay tuned!

meanwhile, join me in taking a moment to focus on our breath ... breathing deeply and allowing the breath to linger a bit ... and then sighing it out.

now, let's go rock this day!

vinyasa yoga teacher training, part II

{freaking awesome graphic from lovegrace}
here we are, together in a new year ... what are your plans?

a big one for me is to finish part 2 of my vinyasa yoga teacher training with the amazing Liz Arch, at my yoga home Red Diamond.

this means i'll be away be well {groomed!} and Studio 41 later this month. here are the details:
OUT of the studio January 23 thru January 31
back IN the studio on Tuesday February 3

my yoga journey brings a chuckle. when i began, about 13 years ago, i felt too old to start yoga. (i know, right?). hear me out, my teachers were younger than me. i sat in an office all day and traveled around the United States for work.  i had to work with a private coach just to get the strength for the beginner classes.

when i've thought about taking a teacher training over the years, guess what i thought ... yep, that i was too old. so, i've come full circle and have enjoyed every step ... it's simply time to take my journey ... further.  

i tend to pick a word to kick of my new year and i think i just found it:  further

are you ready?  let's go!
