Natural beauty of the morning played stunning backdrop to my first official yoga class as instructor. The Tuesday morning 10 week series Hosted by Whole U and the UW Tower couldn’t have gotten off to a better start. We began at 7 am in the darkness and by 8 am the world was awakening in a lavender, periwinkle and peach glow, as pictured above. Meanwhile we woke up our minds and breathed life into our joints, filled our lungs with air and our hearts with joy and gratitude. I feel so proud of my students and grateful for having manifested this opportunity step by step. Thank you to Synergy Yoga School (where I not only became certified, but also holistically nurtured), Cathy Null (my pharmacy manager who made sure My work schedule allowed for the yoga teacher training), Lauren Updyke (of Whole U, who for some unknown reason chose to support and believe in me), Troy Swanson (facilities manager who was excited to add yoga to his building’s green cred) and my lovely prior yoga teachers (all of them!) and my incredible family, especially Michael, Lake, NanaBaba, and Jamma Julie for supporting me along the way. This is a dream come true, and I couldn’t have managed it without your support! Thank you! A perfect day for a yoga class taught by Mama Tolle… I’m glad I spent it with you! And here’s to many more to come!
