So, it’s really happening…as this time has been approaching, everyone always asks why? And my response is always the same because it’s time. And I don’t mean it’s time in the casual sense. I mean IT IS TIME. (Venus and Uranus in double retrograde(?) kinda time.) I am so excited to do this. I’m scared, I’m nervous, and I can’t wait to get started.
It is honestly a dream come true. #livinthedream I feel that everything I’ve done has worked towards this, pieces in the puzzle fitting together. I’m where I’m supposed to be. It feels right without explanation. And I am crazy blessed to have a spouse who supports me like he does. #teambruce
I’ve always felt a call to service. I have always loved yoga. That first class my soul smiled. For a moment everything fit. Today, I feel as though I found the call to yoga 17 years ago and just needed some time to prepare. I’ve been fortunate to meet some amazing, inspiring, supportive, smart, nurturing, challenging, and funny people along the way. And now it’s time to take all that positive energy and pass it on. Nothing other than my family has brought me such joy, such peace, so many moments of clear, moments you want to freeze and just hang out in. So, it’s time.
With a happy heart (really been loving backbends these days?), we begin our raga. It will have its own rhythms, it will tell its own story. It will have its own flow and meter, and if I’m smart, I’ll keep practicing handstands, keep cultivating strength and balance to weather the rain as seasons change and life unfolds. I hope I will see you on the journey. I hope we will meet along its path and that I make the right choice, that I am kind and that I make an effort to do good. This is my yoga, this is my path. This is why I practice.
I’m sure I’ll make mistakes, I’m sure I’ll fall out of a pose or two. But hopefully I’ve done a good thing for my community, a good thing to help those around me. Hopefully, I will have honored their light by stoking it’s flame.
In that spirit, I invite you to come practice with us. Come find your raga. Come practice with some wonderfully fun, smart, thoughtful yogis who are called to shine:)
