Hello everyone!  It has been far too long since my last post.  After my last post, my home sold.  As many of you know, this was a blessing as we had been trying to sell for over a year.  My husband’s job had taken him to another city, and we had all decided to be together in this new city, so to finally sell our home was wonderful – but BUSY.  In the past 3 months, we have sold our home, done inspection repairs, packed up and stored our home, lived at the lake for a month, moved to Wilmington, unpacked our home, and tried to keep some sort of normal, fun life for our family.  It has presented many adventures, but we are now settled and ready for the adventures here in Wilmington.

I am not teaching this summer.  I am going to take a little break and enjoy our new town.  It will also allow me time to research the Wilmington yoga scene and see what it has to offer.  I will be returning to the Charlotte area in August and possibly again in the fall, so stay tuned for details and come visit me!

As always, change is the only constant in life, so I embrace the new surroundings and see what life has to offer in this new city.  I miss everyone in Concord and Charlotte and intend to visit often. I remember writing my “good-bye” to the studio about a year and half ago.  I re-read today and so much stays true.  While on the surface it seems that, the sell of the business did not turn out the way we wanted, I believe the intention behind it did stand true.  I hoped that the healing and loving community we started many moons ago would continue.  The studio eventually closed after I sold it, but I see that the community stood strong on its own.  There are so many folks that graduated from teacher trainings and are doing their own classes all over Concord and surrounding areas.  There are students that have gone on to do more intensive study in areas of yoga and meditation and have transformed their lives.  There are folks seeking out “more” because they finally realized how important their practice was to their life.  It is inspiring.  And, I definitely feel the intention of studying more and developing more trainings and workshops myself has held true.  I have grown as a teacher over the past year due to being able to practice and learn more myself.

I think in reflecting to over a year ago things happened just as they should.  I still have such a strong relationship with so many of you, and as a yoga community you are strong.  I guess the moral of the story for me is set my intentions, work towards my intention daily, but be open to different outcomes and possibilities.  It always ends up better than you could have expected even if you could not imagine it to happen.

Thanks again for so many wonderful memories and a great yoga family for which to return.
