It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, there’s a new light for me…. – Nina Simone
Hello, dear blog readers. I get one or two hits (no, really, one or two) every other day, and I feel bad I haven’t been updating more regularly for those regular-checkers-in. To be honest, I’ve been feeling a little angsty, and moody, and from past experience, I know those emotions don’t go so well in the blogosphere. No extra drama needed, right?
So, now that I’m feelin’ good, here’s an update. There are some really good things coming up, and I’m super excited.
- BodyFlow Advanced Instructor Module! I am so excited about this. Even though, when I first heard about the AIMs, I thought, what a racket, Les Mills just wants to get more money out of us! , when I learned there would be one for BodyFlow, I had that little flutter of open-hearted excitement at the possibility. It’ll be a good opportunity to improve my skills as a teacher, get feedback from a Les Mills trainer, and to talk about BodyFlow, one of my favorite things in the whole wide world, for a whole Saturday. What could be better?
- Signing up for Glenmore Yoga’s 200-hr teacher training program. As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I really love their therapeutic approach, deep focus on anatomy, and the overall structure of the program. I had met with the manager at the Vegetarian Festival a few weeks ago, and when I called just now to sign up for classes, she said how glad she was to hear from me, and that she’d mentioned me to the owner of Glenmore. She gave me a great rundown of the program and how to get started, and I look forward to buying my reading package and diving in over the next few weeks. I’m also going to take their Level 2 class starting Monday. Good stuff, can’t wait!
So, those are the two big things I’m looking forward to right now, and I have been edging my way toward happiness, little by little, with daily practice in whatever amounts I can manage.
On the top of my to-do list a few days ago, I found myself writing, “Just a little more meditation would go a long way.” It’s become my mantra, and it’s so true! Just a little more meditation creates a sense of openness and expansiveness that is hard to find in all the noise of daily life.
