I just feel such a huge sense of accomplishment and also a calling to tell everyone how life changing yoga is!!!  It’s all I talk about and I just want to experience it with everyone together!  My mom and I are starting the beginners series this coming Saturday and I can’t wait to have this time with her.  It has been everything for me and my sister, so I just can’t wait!!!  Nancy, I feel like the universe brought us together and I’m so thankful that I ended up in your class at Bliss Body.I knew from the moment I met you that we were going to kindred spirits #anneofgreengables  I think you are such a wonderful person and your light shines so bright.  I couldn’t be more happy to be starting this series again with you!!!  Here is a little trip down memory lane…

Thank you to Meg, Barbara, Rachel and Kristina for welcoming me into your classes as well! I can’t wait to meet EVERYONE!  So as part of my challenge I found myself at Bliss Body all damn day today and it was heaven!  I started the day with Flow Yoga Basics with sweet Meg!  This was hard but blissful!  So blissful in fact that for the first time EVER I forgot to get a pic! Dammit!  I met my family for lunch #ogbeards at Guacasa and it was great.  I literally felt high from class.  We talked a lot about   just because you may have a misstep doesn’t meant that you have to start from the beginning, you can start right from where you stand, forgiveness of ones self!  Then I met Kelly and my good ol Pure Barre buddy, Lauren for a Sunday Funday, welcome to Barbaras Restorative Yoga…

I cannot say enough about how lovely this class is.  You just melt into the floor and the only thing you need to do it breath…heaven!  She asked us to listen in the silence to what pops up and for me it was a calling to do more.  I have so much and I want to give back more!!!  Here is a perfect opportunity!

Please give if you can, If you have something that you would like to donate I can bring it to the studio for you, or you can come take a class with me winky face!

And I love sharing this restoration with my friends!!!  Then Kelly was signed up for Flow Yoga right after this nap and I decided to face my fears, be brave and try my first full blown, fast paced flow class…and I survived!!!  Thanks Kristina for being gentle with me!!!!  Kristina’s class was all about your 5th chakra which is your throat, your voice, your truth and creating space and length in the neck!

Kellllllly, thanks for always being so supportive!  You guys, it was like sweat pouring off of you hard, buuuut I totally held my own and only had to come out of the poses a handful of times.  It is amazing how much of a difference 8 weeks and the loving embrace of a new yoga studio can make!!!  Are you guys on board yet, have you signed up to get to know yourself and the rest of the word better!?!?!?!?!  In closing, I have officially done my first 3 a day workout, I am a Beginners Series Graduate ( a thank you very much), I survived my first flow class and I am closer to my self and everyone that I’ve had the pleasure of practicing this wonderful gift with.

Look at the difference!!!  If anyone wants to come to a class with me, I WOULD LOVE THAT! Just message me and lets get our bliss on.  I literally love every single one of you and I am grateful everyday that you read our journey.  Through all of the ups and downs of me and Jenny trying to get healthy, you guys have been the one thing that has never changed, and we love you for that.  From my light to yours, namaste.

  1. Hello fellow Yogi! 🙂 I read about your story on BBY’s facebook page. Last night was my second week back in Meg’s class after a 6 month hiatus from recovering from a knee injury. I instantly recognized your picture, front of the class yogi! I’m the “back of the class” yogi, lol. I also LOVE all of the instructors there! My bestie & I followed Barbara over from another studio, her restorative class is amazing! I love the way Meg teaches, she’s such a bright light! So anyway, my journey is starting over again but I was once in your shoes when I first fell in love with Yoga. It will definitely change your life! If you haven’t already, try Anisha’s Pangu Yoga! It’s wonderful! See you in class! Namaste. 🙂
