As I finally have my website up and my logo designed, it’s become the time for me to write my inaugural blog post. I’ve struggled over the last few days with what the content of my inaugural blog post would be. Should I introduce myself? Should I set a theme for my blog? And then it hit me, this first post is like the first time I’ve approached certain asanas on my yoga mat. There’s really no write or wrong way to do it, but I should take it in stages and as I get comfortable in each stage, then open myself up for the risk that the next stage brings with it. So for this post, it means going where the writing flow takes me.
I started practicing yoga to help stay fit and trim and to reduce my stress level. I found so much more coming to my mat: clarity of mind and increased relaxation, with the added bonuses of reduced stress and a fit and trim body. As I discovered this passion for yoga, I decided I wanted to share it with as many people as possible and that the best way to do that would be through teaching. I completed my 200-hour certification in April 2011 and am now a registered yoga teacher, teaching classes at my yoga home – Tranquil Space in Washington, DC & Arlington, VA. I decided I wanted a website that would have useful resources for my students and help me develop my yoga business. Often I come out of classes wondering, what songs did the teacher play, so I’ll be posting my weekly and special occasion playlists to the Playlists page on the site. I like seeing what books, websites, and blogs others follow and find to be inspirational, so there’s a page for yoga resources (all my favorites). I also wanted to start coming into my voice through writing, so here we are – the blog.
I hope that in the upcoming days, weeks, and months, I can provide insights into my life on and off the mat, including tidbits about my teaching yoga and personal yoga practice, helpful hints I learn from others, and whatever else I feel like, possibly a photo of the week, to help encourage and develop my photography hobby or pictures and discussion of my latest knitting project – in all likelihood, another scarf or wrap. I hope to see you back here soon, as I begin to come into my voice through writing. Namaste.
