A few months ago I completed an incredible training to up-level the work I am able to do with my clients and students. Teaching yoga has been a powerful tool, but for many people it opens the door to a physical and spiritual awakening that we may not have the support to investigate further.
For many people yoga is a way to "tune in" to what they are thinking and feeling and meet a whole different part of themselves.
Not bad for just unrolling your mat right?!
I wanted to be able to meet more of my students in that space through my work as a Life Coach because self-inquiry is another transformational branch on the tree of Yoga.
And since opening up more space in my day to work with people I have noticed that many of my clients are saying the same things.
The new mother who doesn't want to put her health, happiness and big goals on the back-burner for the next 20 years while she raises her kids.
The entrepreneur who is juggling the pursuit of her passion, her relationship and trying to maintain an intensive spiritual/ yoga practice.
The manager who can't seem to figure out how to close his computer and leave his work at work.
Their lives look different, but they all tell me the same thing.
"There just isn't enough time in the day."
With a business of my own, two kids under three, a partner I love spending time with and a daily spiritual practice you might imagine I would be nodding along in agreement with my clients.
But I am not, because an unexpected thing happened when I had kids.
