Hi loves.

So two days post yoga school and I have re entered the “real world” successfully. I have been practicing yoga in the mornings and getting meditation in when I can. It feels good to keep all the momentum going from yoga school and continue with my practices. I am in the planning phases of a youtube channel and I hope to have my first class up by the end of this week. It is quite a process so be patient, but know it is coming. I am so excited to design classes and teach them for all of you.

Yoga came into my life at a time when I truly needed it most. I was a freshman in college and lost. When I say lost I mean it literally because I really was lost a lot and figuratively. I was attempting to cope with some past junk all on my own, while also entering into the world in a different state from my family. I was completely overwhelmed.

I started going to yoga at the University of Nebraska rec center and completely fell in love. I got the unlimited pass and went every single day. Yoga was my safe place. It was the only place I could go where all the mental chatter stopped. All my worries, fears, and stresses were somehow rendered powerless once I stepped into the studio. Nothing could touch me in that room. My mind was quiet and I was at peace. And so began the life long journey to make that peace my constant state.

I have not perfected that state but I am getting much closer. Years later yoga is still my safe place. I can go to my yoga and know that my mind will quiet and for that hour I can just focus on the poses and my breath. It is the most powerful tool I have ever had. I wondered why more people didn’t do yoga?

After graduating college I realized that yoga was not as accessible as I thought. The student rate of $60 per semester of unlimited yoga was no longer an option and I quickly found out why none of my friends were doing yoga. Yoga is expensive as hell! After looking into what it costs for a month of unlimited yoga at a studio I was furious. How was a kid right out of college supposed to afford that? How was 90% of the population supposed to afford that? I was so so mad. I felt like the one thing that kept me in peace had been ripped away from me.

So I went into full blown problem solving mode. I started looking for yoga schools that would offer cheaper yoga for classes taught by students…..the school was like an hour away from me and only had one free class a week. Then the best idea ever came to me…..YOUTUBE. I thought surely there are millions of full classes of yoga on there.

Nope.

Most of the yoga clips are under an hour and don’t include a warm up or cool down/savasana (the best part of yoga when you get to lay down and relax).

I wanted to create a yoga studio in my living room and click a button one time and then just go through a yoga class with a virtual yoga teacher but it didn’t seem to be available. That was a few years ago and today there do seem to be a few people putting up longer classes but just not the quality I was looking for.

So I am now a yoga teacher and I want to give that quality to my people. I am going to design and teach classes as if I was in a studio and then put them up on youtube. I am not claiming to be the most physically advance yogi there is, I still have lots of work to do in all my poses but I do know how to teach and how to put a class together. I am really excited for this new venture. I hope you will watch and get something out of my videos.

Love and Light yogis,

XOXO
