Yoga

Okay, so I decided to start taking yoga again.... As you can see from my last post, the gym membership is not working out so well. Although, I did make it to the gym yesterday and feel fantastic, I really think it`s the yoga classes that are paying off. My boss and good friend, Eleni, and I have been trying to make it to class at least 3 times a week. It`s hard to squeeze anything else into my already crazy schedule, but yoga is SO worth it! It`s much more then a fitness thing, it really is the entire scope, the "mind, body AND soul" of it that makes the greatest impact. It is too easy to get caught up in the stress, worry and business of day to day life. Taking a mental break that reminds you who you really are and what life is about, that`s necessary.
For now I`m content going a few times a week at level 1, but not for long. For years now I`ve been wanting to teach. Back when I was younger I used to teach yoga for a woman's group at church. Since then it`s always been my dream to teach again, but i knew I needed to get certified and so it always got put on the back burner. Now, 8 years later, I think I`m ready. Eli is a year old now and I can no longer use "I just had a baby" as an excuse. I want to get certified and teach yoga within the next year.
One of my favorite quotes says, "A goal without a plan is just a wish."
So, here I go. Yoga class 3 times a week is the start...
What are your dreams, goals, wishes, desires? Do you have a plan?
