It’s been months since I shared my yoga news. Happy to report, it’s all good I finished my 200-hour RYT certification and added a specialization in Restorative Yoga.
I travelled to Crete to practice and then on to Paros for beach yoga. Teaching community classes at Yoga Space taught me how to pace a class, help students and share the wonderful energy that occurs in a group.
Last weekend, I travelled with five friends to the Bad River. It’s near the French River, an hour north of Parry Sound. The “Bad”, as locals call it, is remote. It takes 45 minutes by fast boat, down two sets of intense rapids and suddenly the water, rocks and sky open to beautiful Georgian Bay.
Each friend was asked to organize an activity. I taught yoga on the deck. While we were practicing an eagle, who nests in the area, swooped around to say hi. I intended to teach Tree as a balance pose but quickly switched to Eagle even though it’s not my favourite.
John Lennon said, “Life is what happens when you’re making plans.” On the Bad, I learned when the universe gives a gift, embrace it.
When have your plans changed because of the unexpected?
