Finding My Zen

I am super ecstatic to announce that I will be starting a 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training program at CITYOGA in less than two weeks!!

I have been thinking about this for a few years now, but there have been so many things that have kept me from doing it. The time and financial investment were definitely factors that kept me from doing it before. Honestly, though, I’ve realized there was really only ever one thing that kept me from doing it:

I am the worst fucking yogi ever.

I’m actually not a yogi at all.

Sure, I’ve been practicing yoga for nearly fifteen years. I used my knowledge to help heal my back when I injured it in Guatemala when there wasn’t a hospital or doctor or physical therapist around for a couple of hundred miles. But, I’m not a fucking yogi. I’m a smoker. An addict of arguably the least socially acceptable addiction can’t possibly be a yogi. I’m overweight. There are another couple hundred reasons I could find to explain why I’m not a fucking yogi.

If I wait until I’m perfect, I’ll never Be.

If I wait until I’m ready, I’ll never Be.

So, I stopped waiting. I decided to fill out the application and drop it off. When I did, I had an impromptu interview with one of the instructors, paid my dues, and signed up.

No turning back now.
