Starting A New Chapter : Aspiring Yogi

Hello Darlings!

From the first day I stepped onto a mat I knew I was meant to be a yoga instructor. It was one of those gut feelings that is simultaneously terrifying and exhilarating, so intense that you want to push it under the rug and ignore it. I did just that for a while, I pursued a desk job that sounded wonderful on paper but in actuality was a bit suffocating (although I did like the outfits). 

This One-Legged King Pigeon pose looks a bit silly as I'm cheesing into the camera!

When I decided to take the plunge, follow my heart, and move out to Colorado, a big factor on where I wanted to live was all about which yoga teacher trainings would be available. I knew I wanted to focus on children, both in the womb and after they make their debuts into this world. My mom did yoga exercises to my siblings and me when we were infants, and I really believe in the health benefits. I also love children, I’m always happy when I have a child on my hip, as their joy is contagious. Combine that love with my (sometimes awkward) hypermobility that allows me to move as a child might, and a life path of being a prenatal and children’s yoga instructor fits perfectly.

So, the big reveal: I’ve been accepted into an intensive 200 hour teacher training course here in Denver, that starts in September! Also, I’ve decided to add on three separate certifications for prenatal, children’s, and restorative yoga that clock in at 25 hours each. So, essentially, I am going to be incredibly busy in the best way possible. I’m incredibly nervous and yet so excited and can’t wait to start this new chapter in my life and share it with you all!

This is one of my favorite recent yoga selfies! Yay Instagram challenges!

What I would like to know from you, my darling readers, is what you would like to see yoga-wise here on ChickadeeSays. I have been planning on expanding my fitness-related posts and this is the perfect opportunity to do so. Don’t worry, all of this will be in addition to my regular recipe, cocktail, DIY, and Tinker posts!

What would you like to see most? Pose how-tos? Yoga philosophy? Sequencing? A day in the life of a yogi? I would love your input in the comments below!
