I have always wanted to accomplish something really great, like something that matters and changes people - and our world. I've held this dream for so long I can't remember when it began.
This dreams walks with me wherever I go. It is a constant partner. The thing is I don't know the specifics of the dream - like what is the thing I do that makes a difference? And how do I know when I am doing it? And what form does it take? Is it through writing, movement, teaching, art, collaboration?
I don't know. But this dream calls to me nonetheless.
I do know that I want to write a book, one that maps my life and winds its way through the hills and valleys of trauma, heartbreak, shame, courage, and self-love.
I know that I love to teach and want to have a platform where I lead, guide, teach, and support others.
I also know whatever I do it needs to meld art, movement, writing, and teaching together in some way.
But here’s the thing, I hold...
Last week I sent you an email about why we are all feeling so tired right now and I received many responses that included "Thank you, I thought I was the only one". Believe me, you are not the only one (that is tired or having a hard time).
The pandemic is wearing on us. We’re worn out, feel isolated, everyday feels like groundhog day, we have zoom fatigue, we miss our friends and family. We are burned out and done with this situation.
Right now, we need each other more than ever. We need community and we need to know we are not alone.
I want to do more to help all of us feel better. So I am going to be offering more support here in the newsletter and also more support and strategies within the Brave New Yoga Membership, which will come in the form of:
I think you can relate when I say I am tired, like bone tired, from the pandemic and the many hardships over the past year. Anxiety and stress have been steady partners of mine during this pandemic but now I am mostly feeling weary and worn out.
I thought it was just me but after listening to a podcast by Brene Brown recently, I learned that weariness and exhaustion are rampant right now. Why? Because our brains have been constantly bombarded by first times. Like working remotely while homeschooling kids, holidays without families, constantly running a risk analysis around going to the store or running errands in town, being isolated from friends and family, connecting with people primarily through Zoom, the list goes on and on and on. And then on top of that we are experiencing a racial reckoning that is long overdue and still has a long way to go.
All of these situations are firsts for us...we haven't...
You will be the first to know when I offer workshops and programs plus discounts that only YOU will have access to.
This is the beginning of something truly wonderful.
I am so glad you are here.
