Cultivating Courage

Hello Warriors,

Now that you've learned a bit about me, my past, and journey to becoming a yoga instructor, I thought I would turn this blog over to the present day. And, it seemed fitting to share a recent challenge I've been working through with you all.  If you didn't get a chance to read my first two posts, head over to the post about my journey into yoga and the second about becoming a yoga instructor.

Last summer I began to have random pains in my left foot. When it first started I thought, "Oh, it's probably just overuse. I'll be gentle on it and it'll pass." After a couple weeks, the pain still hadn't passed and it started to become pretty painful just to walk.

Journey of a Yoga Instructor

Hello again.

First off, thank you so much to all those who reached out and shared words of love and encouragement in response to my first post. Your support means so much and really reinforces my willingness to be open about my story and share my journey. I love you all and am truly grateful for the compassion and love you shared with me.

For the second post, I thought I would share a bit about my training in becoming a yoga instructor. I had been thinking about doing a 200-hour level training for several months and contemplating the right time. With graduation from graduate school approaching, I figured the months following would be a good time to take on something big like a training.
