The floor is warm and smooth under my feet. Closing my eyes, I stretch my toes wide and begin to rock my weight back and forth between toe and heel. Finally comfortably rooted and centered, I begin to move my awareness up my body: legs rising long, low back lengthening down, shoulders line up with hips and ears, crown of the head rising. Breathing into my stillness, I feel my ribs expand and release over and over, the rhythm centering me. Gradually the time for stillness draws to a close. My breath whispers to my bones, my muscles, my soul: move. And I do.
This post will be short, not because I want it to be but because nearly EVERY post I've tried to write over the last few months has been deleted by my (much appreciated, but extremely frustrating) loaner netbook. I've promised myself that for the sake of my sanity and my writing commitments, I WILL stop procrastinating and buy an new computer ASAP. Anyway, I am persevering and getting a short but sweet update post to you (finally) - soon to be followed by more interesting posts, I promise.
I am so excited by all of the exciting opportunities I've been blessed with in the New Year. I've got several collaborations with Fernie businesses in the works and will be teaching out of several new locations around town as well. I'll be updating the schedule as details are firmed up. For January so far you can find me teaching Vinyasa Flow Tuesday mornings 9:45-11am and a workshop series "Ignite Your Intention" Wednesday nights 7-8:30pm both out of The Arts Station. Drop in and punch pass rates available.
More updates on where you can catch a class with me and other exciting yoga news in Fernie coming soon! In the meantime, share with me your exciting news or adventures that you've planned for the new year.
I'm just a yogi in the mountains of British Columbia. If you've found your way to this site, it's very likely that you are too. Here you'll find information about my upcoming classes, workshops and retreats via the link to my website, as well my thoughts on yoga philosophy, what music I'm pumping in class, pictures, videos and other news about yoga and spirituality.
