I'm Okay...

This morning I taught the last class in MY studio to a full room of smiling faces. Faces made much more smiley after learning that we will be continuing our morning Gentle Yoga classes next week in a temporary location until I have a clearer idea of what the future holds for me and my business. As the last student exited the studio I picked up my cordless screw driver and in less than 90 minutes returned this...


to a big bare box of a room much like I walked into (minus the blue wall) last September...



Tearing down the studio today was somewhat cathartic. In the end I realized I really needed to do it alone even though I had several offers for help. Having a yoga studio was my dream and if there was ever a chance for realization of that dream I had to be in the one to do the work. In the end I feel like I successfully fulfilled that dream, even if for a brief moment in time.

Walking...

Almost every day when Brea and I walk to school we (or sometimes just I if i have already dropped her off at her entrance) at some point cross paths with another little girl and her grandma who are also on their way to the school.

It's easy to see that they are related, both with their dark hair and fine features. The grandma quietly walks her granddaughter along, often glancing down at the ground as we pas…

Pioneer Love...

We spent a little time in Grinnell this weekend. The girls got to hangout in the gym working on skills and drills with the Grinnell College Women's basketball team. Lexi was so excited to get to see some of her Grinnell friends. Brea was actually a little under the intended participant age, but due to a small turnout of 3rd graders, Coach invited her to join in the fun.







I myself was pretty excited to be back in a gym that feels like home. Thanks Pioneers!
