It’s been a long time since I mentioned my yoga practice but as with all things it’s path is quite unpredictable. I now have 200+ hours of teacher training under my belt and have been certified to teach by Yoga Alliance.
Today, I went to my regular LA Fitness class (Tuesdays and Thursdays at 8:30) only to discover that my very favorite teacher will no longer be working there. Ugh! It’s like going to the pancake house and finding out they changed their pecan syrup to blueberry. My first reaction is to say, “Well that’s the end of LA Fitness for me.” but maybe it’s just possible this is just the change I need in my practice. After all, yoga is a process is it not? We will see?!??!
For sure it will encourage me to more regularly attend Yoga with Phyllis at the Squirrel Hill Library (Tuesdays at 5:30 and Saturdays at 10:00). Phyllis, the elder stateswoman of yoga, is the reason I have my teacher certificate. If you’ve never tried- this would be the place to start your practice and watch it grow.
Did I tell you I am now a teacher at Our Clubhouse (formally Gilda’s Club) subbing as needed and teaching Thursday nights at 6:00 when the Clubhouse is open? For anyone whose life has been touched my cancer, there is nothing better than a little gently yoga at Our Clubhouse to calm the nerves.
