Eat. Sleep. Yoga. Repeat.

I haven't been the best blogger this past month, but I have good reasons. I swear!

 I have been fully immersed in a month long yoga teacher training program through 3B Yoga!  This studio is basically my home for the month. I am there 6 days a week 1pm-5pm, with 6 yoga classes required per week on top of that. Then I come home and do homework, read, take tests, and try and stay on top of my laundry & housework, all with a sore body. Haha but I am loving every minute of it. I am learning more than I ever dreamed of learning during these 4 weeks. I have practiced yoga for years, but have always wanted to learn more about it because I knew that I was missing some knowledge that could help further my practice. The last two weeks have changed my practice completely. It has opened my eyes to the practice being so much more than poses or postures or trying to be as flexible as I can. Learning about how the breath is the most important part of yoga, and how if we let the breath lead our practice, we will be able to achieve so much more than we thought we could. Also, I am gaining a better understanding about how yoga can change your life emotionally, mentally, and spiritually... not just physically. That yoga is for everyone!

I am grateful for this opportunity to gain more knowledge on something that I am passionate about! I am grateful for my amazing husband for him not only allowing me to go through this program, but for him to pick up my slack around the house and with Ellie while I am at school. He is the best!  These last two weeks have been emotionally hard for me because I rarely see Ellie... I work in the mornings then go straight to yoga training, then straight to a yoga class, then come home to just be able to cuddle with her for a minute before she goes to bed.  But this is a sacrifice that I know I needed to take. Only two more weeks and I will look back on this experience and be so glad that I made those sacrifices in order to gain the experiences that I am gaining through this amazing program.

So.. until the end of June... this is where you can find me. :)
