Kind of crazy- kind of meant to be.
So you all know I am all about energy and how everything happens for a reason. I somewhat explain in this video where I have been, and why. I have always promised to be authentic and I needed to get myself in check before I could be beneficial to any of you. Lots to think about...lots to settle...lots to consider.
I'm being honest when I tell you that the idea of creating an on-line yoga class made me feel guilty. It's scary to have to close the doors- it makes paying the rent fairly challenging. But, as I watched studio after studio close, I forced myself to focus on the positive. I still have an income and I can tighten the purse strings at home to hopefully cover my yoga obligations. I couldn't stop thinking about other studio owners who don't have that luxury- and thought it would be selfish of me to do what they were doing in order to "survive."
Over the past few days I have really thought long and hard about things....and I have come to this conclusion. It's not about "surviving"....its about supporting. It's about connections, and friendships, and being able to get a glimpse of our usual "normal." Honest- I miss you guys. I miss hearing about your days, your celebrations, your struggles. I miss the bright spot that room is in my life-it's selfish- but it's true. I love teaching yoga- I love laughing and smiling and moving. I also think the page I'm currently building will allow us all to communicate through a message board. Again-I'm learning over here and think I am doing this all right. We'll see.
So, I'm back. I am going to try this video yoga thing. I have decided the best way to do this is to offer a weekly subscription on-line. I will be posting videos- vinyasa, restorative, mindful. Some will be 30 mins , some will be 45 mins, and some may be a whole hour. Truthfully I am still figuring it all out but hope to be up and running this weekend. A weekly subscription will cost $15 and will be purchased through the MIndbody site. Any videos posted will be available to you until this "stay at home" order is over. I am going to ask you to text me to let me know you are interested. Then, I will send you instructions for how to join the group once it goes LIVE and purchase your subscription.
I named this group "The color is yellow"- because for whatever reason I was drawn to yellow today. Yellow is the color of the the solar plexus chakra, Manipura, the ‘jewel city’ and is associated with emotions, confidence, will power, decisions, personal opinions, purpose. This chakra governs the emotional body and it is your power and transformation centre.
The animal totem of this chakra is the ram. This male sheep is the symbol of conquest, personal power and new beginnings. The ram leaps and hops effortlessly in a difficult terrain where no one else dares going.
Tonight we were supposed to be watching both of our children participate in their first lacrosse games of this season. They are both Holt Rams. If that's not a sign....I don't know what else could be.
So here we go...take a step forward with me!
The link is not attached yet, but will be as soon as the videos are uploaded and I know everything is working properly!!
See you soon!
Sharing my thoughts-
I like to talk too much...it's a gift really. I have decided that writing it all down will be much easier for you to tolerate. In this space I promise to be authentic. I have been told that I often make it all look easy...and it's not. I promise. -e
