Yoga. I’m planning on doing and teaching a whole bunch of it this summer. I plan to study as much as possible, i.e. read a bunch from these books and try to practice (in some form) every day.
I’m adding a couple new things to my schedule at the studio and I’m going to be teaching a couple classes in Louisville as well! What I’ve finally learned this year (especially since discovering YogaGlo) is that this practice is not linear. You have great days, okay days, and down right crappy days. Aches and pains (dang left hip!) can force you to focus on things you don’t naturally gravitate towards (backbending) and that is a good thing. I’ve officially left the Ashtanga vinyasa system for straight up vinyasa classes with Iyengar mixed in. Don’t get me wrong, I still love Ashtanga and would practice it regularly if I lived near this teacher, but I don’t, so my virtual instructors Kathryn Budig, Tiffany Cruikshank, Christina Sell, and Dice Iida-Klein along with various local teachers have taken over.
I look forward to a summer full of yoga with a little bit of Ashtanga thrown in there (I mean, come on Kino Macgregor is going to be at Yoga East again!) However, I am not going to give myself any specific yoga goals for the summer (I know, crazy right?!). I am just going to take it one day at a time.
If you’re a local reader and want to come practice with me, here’s my teaching schedule:
2nd & 4th Monday 5:45pm – 7:00pm Restorative Yoga
Tuesday 9:00am – 10:00am Yoga II *starts May 28th
Tuesday 6:00 – 7:00 pm Yoga for Healthy Living
Wednesday 4:00 – 5:00pm Yoga II
Thursday 6:00 – 7:00 pm Yoga for Healthy Living
Saturday 9:30 – 10:30 am Flow Yoga
In addition to these ongoing classes, I’ll be offering three workshops, which will be $15.00
Strengthen Your Core Saturday, May 25 11:00am – 12:30pm
Upper Body and Arm Strength Saturday, June 1 11:00am – 12:30pm
Developing a Home Practice Saturday, June 15 11:00am – 12:30pm
Hope to see you soon if you feel like yoga-ing in Kentuckiana!

What a fabulous weekend…starting with my Mom’s art opening at The Artisan Center on Thursday.
She nailed it with her artist’s statement:
Lots of fun was had…then a wonderful meal with all the out-of-towners at The Green Door on Friday. Saturday morning and afternoon was filled with a wonderful yoga workshop–the culminating project for my teacher training! I will miss the ladies at Orbis very much, but I know I will see them often. Can’t wait to graduate Wednesday!
Saturday evening was full of dancing and merriment.
Sunday was full of porch sittin’ and yoga photo sessions:

Things have been extra busy this week and they are about to get busier. Yesterday I landed my first paying gig as a yoga teacher! I will be teaching a couple classes a week at the YMCA here in Corydon!
Also, the gallery/studio space at 326 S. Capital is almost ready and we hopefully can have class there soon.
Life has been a little yoga crazy lately, lots of classes at Yoga on Baxter, a full weekend workshop for teacher training this weekend, teaching for my fellow employees at the office, and now this!
Not that I’m complaining, it’s been great.
