So far 2016 has been quite an incredible year! Back in January, I started a Yoga Business course, which has kept me focused on creating a whole new website and defining how I want to proceed to grow my business. This involved a Yoga photo shoot at beautiful Neck Point, which is where all the pictures on my site were taken. This course was intended to have me really think about and dive into the reasons why I became a Yoga Teacher. Through this process, I have been thinking a lot about my life and all the number of reasons I found Yoga. I am grateful that everything in my life has lead me on this amazing journey.
This year I started officially offering Group Yoga Hike classes and the feedback I have received has encouraged me to promote these classes more than I had been doing. It has been a lot of fun bringing different groups of people through the various beautiful parks & trails for our Yoga Hikes. Last weekend while at Neck Point, a bald eagle flew over and then watched us from a nearby tree, which inspired the group to immediately get into Eagle Pose for a group photo! A unanimous vote was taken at the end of class that morning to exclaim that Neck Point was everyone's favourite location to date. Obviously one of mine as well, since that's where I had chosen for my photo shoot back in the Spring.
This summer was wonderfully busy as I worked on one of my final projects for my course and the season ended with me purchasing my very own home! It was not something I had planned at all but for fun I started looking at options thinking that maybe by next year I would be ready to make a purchase. However, within a month of looking, I found the perfect place, in the perfect location and the perfect price! In 2 weeks, I will be moving into my new home and am very excited!
A couple weekends ago, I took a trip to Vancouver to go see my favourite Winnipeg band, Royal Canoe, who were on the first stop of their Canadian tour promoting their new album. It was a great show and I was lucky enough to enjoy the show with several Winnipeg friends who all live in Vancouver now. I even got all 6 members so sign my CD, which was a difficult task to try and track them all down afterwards.
Life right now is simply crazy awesome!
