This past weekend I took my last 2 classes for my yoga teacher certification! I still can't believe the program is over, its been a long at times trying journey. I can remember several weekends where I just wanted to quit, there were times that I was tired, missed my kids, missed events, missed time with my husband, missed time just spending the weekend relaxing. In fact there was one weekend where, I was so overwhelmed and exhausted that while trying to drive to training, tears were just running down my face and I turned around and skipped class. Through out all of this, my burning desire to achieve my goals and really bring the change I want to see in our world kept me going. This training was the first thing I ever completed that wasn't "required" or done to " get a job, promotion, etc" This was purely something elective that I wanted to do for myself and my future.
I haven't quite developed exactly what I will do now that I am done, but I would love to share a few things that are going on.
-I have been teaching a chair yoga class for my coworkers for a few weeks now
-I have received a few inquires for private yoga classes
-I even had one of our surgeons ask me to attend one of the meetings for which he is the chair of, to present Yoga and my mission for helping health care workers. We were having a casual conversation when he asked me about my yoga class, I then shared my mission and he then invited me! He wants to see if we can get buy in from some other departments in the hospital :)
- I interviewed at a studio last month to teach. I don't know why I did this , because I've said time and time again that I didn't want to teach at a studio. After the interview, the owner basically said she hired me and asked for my schedule via email. I sent it a few days later, and have yet to hear from her. This wasn't a surprise to me at all, I am meant to do more and her lack of response was a sign from the universe that I need to stay focused on what I am doing and my mission.
All in all, I realize we don't always have to have a plan. What's important is to know what you want, and take the steps necessary to get it done, all the while trusting that you are on the right path and being led by a force greater than you!
Much Love and Light to you all!
