Back to school. Those three words conjure up an image or feeling whether you’re about to
get back at it or if it’s a distant memory. For most of us, it’s not a neutral reaction. The four members of my family–two high school girls, my husband and myself–all process “back to school” very differently.
This summer, for the first time ever, I took a hiatus from being a regular going to class yoga student. I simply did not want to make the long drive to the studio that’s been my home base for close to fifteen years. It’s our busy season here, teaching extra yoga classes, farming at its peak, the girls being home, traveling here and there.
Explanations or excuses? It doesn’t really matter. What I do know is that it is back to yoga school time for me. Taking classes, workshops, exciting travels to earn CEU credits are all on my calendar.
Also on my calendar is offering more possibilities to learn about big picture yoga here at True North Yoga. Yoga is so much more than the exercise program that we’ve morphed it in to in this part of the world. Right now I’m looking for your input as to how that calendar will shape up for the fall. (see the link on this website’s homepage)
I will also be blogging on a more regular basis. I use to have daily deadlines as a writer but some sort of fear has kept me from doing this. My friend Cecelia just starting blogging. (More about her in a later post.) She’s given me the kick in the pants that I needed.
So lace up your new school shoes, sharpen your pencils and load your backpacks.
Yogis, take off your shoes, roll out your mat and take a deep, calming breath.
It’s time to begin again.
