Following my heart

Its been so long since I have updated this blog! I was inspired to update today because I woke up with the desire to start sharing my practice and transitioning raw vegan diet with the world...via youtube. I had plans to do this once I completed my teaching training, but it was on my heart to go ahead and start now! Why wait? I feel like I just need to share all of what yoga is for me. Ive only been practicing a year now, but I cannot see my life without yoga, I can't imagine my day to day without meditating, deep breathing, or doing a sun salutations.I recorded an intro video for youtube but, I haven't come up with a username yet. I want to have a separate channel for this new wonderful lifestyle I am stepping into :)In other news, i discovered Kundalini Yoga a few days ago. A video randomly popped up on my youtube feed. I watched and became hooked! I love that the movements are simple and that so much emphasis is placed on breathing. I have always naturally closed my eyes while practicing asana, so i was more than welcome to do so with Kundalini. THe chanting, I'm not sure about but just about everything i loved. My mind often wanders and its really hard for me to keep focus especially with video yoga, but that was hardly a problem with kundalini :)I can see myself integrating different styles of yoga. So far Iyengar, Hatha, and Kundalini are my favorite. I have to laugh because anyone that knows me, knows that I am old fashioned and have often be called an "old soul". Not only is my old "soulness" evident in music choice but also in my choice of yoga! LOLNamaste~
