My Journey

So today, I completed my 200RYT in yoga training. It has been a journey of tears and has been long, because I could not contain myself to pursuing just one particular type of students were way too important for that. So, I spent years, accomplishing what many do in six weeks or a year....but that is ok. My path has been different, I pursued studies that would benefit my students more than benefiting me. That is while a goal has been really is the journey more than the destination. And in the words of my good friend Claude Thomas, I did it "one breath at a time."

I am tired muscles ache, my bones weary.....a smile on my face. The day has been good, but it truly was the journey that made this all seem worth while.
Every teacher training I attended, every class I taught has woven a tapestry full of beauty and knowledge and wisdom.....I am blessed. My students have been answers to prayers, bringing great joy and love to my life...and this path is unbelievably peaceful and rewarding. I will never be able to give back, what has been given to me.

When I started to teach, I had no idea what my destination was, but I knew in my heart the journey would be filled with love, joy, and incredible people, it has surpassed my expectations.
My heart is overflowing with gratitude, I know that I am blessed.....and tonight I send those blessings to all of you. I hope your journey will be as wonderful as mine, no matter where it takes you.
