New year, New goals

New year, New goals

Hi guys!

Happy New Year!

2016 marks my last year in my 30’s before ringing in a new decade of life. It can give you a moment to reflect…or for me a millisecond. I stopped making new year resolutions years ago and started making goals for each year. Some were personal, academic, professional, and a lot of them were yoga related. This year I made a fitness goal. I’m training for a road race. But here’s something you have to understand.


I am not a runner.


Typically when I run, something in my brain will ask me “Why?” about 30 seconds in. But I’ve decided this year that I was going to pick a goal completely outside of my comfort zone. So for as much as it may be a fitness goal, it’s also a personal growth experience.

So this newbie is taking it slow. I went to Fleet Feet and had the whole proper shoe picking experience (and learned about the importance of the proper sock). It was almost overwhelming. And I’ve spent my whole career in fitness…but not this arena. It’s also a great reminder of how a newbie walking into a yoga class must feel.

So yea…if you see me on the streets…honk (or don’t. Maybe just wave.)

Couple of announcements!

January is my birthday month and I want to celebrate with YOU! My birthday will fall on a Tuesday for my regular 7 pm beginner flow class (yes, it’s hot) and there’s no better time to come hang out with me! I don’t need any gifts. I’m actually donating my profits from the class to Growing Homes SE – the agency I got my foster license through. So the best gift you can give me is to come to class…and bring a friend!

And the Sunday 5pm Yoga Hour at City Yoga comes back as of NOW!!
