Workshops & Trainings

I am so fired up that Baron Baptiste is coming to our area! He will be in Charleston for a one-day program called an All Day Immersion on Saturday, March 23, 2013. The event is 9am-8pm and is an ALL-LEVELS, really fun day of yoga with Baron. I was on the assisting team for the ADI in New York this January, and making plans to go to Charleston as a participant. This program will LIGHT YOU UP and will be a great way to build our Baptiste community in Greensboro.

Baron only does a few events a year like this which are not teacher trainings, not master classes, but truly a low-pressure, challenging, fun, interesting day of learning and growing in your yoga practice. Did I mention that this is ALL-LEVELS?? Do not be intimidated. You are ready now!! I would LOVE to get a crew together to drive down. Let me know if you are interested and we can chat more, or find the site below for details.

*360 JUNIOR GOLF - The goal of 360 Junior Golf is threefold: to improve the overall skill set of a junior golfer, guide the player through the junior tournament landscape, and provide a college counseling program that enables families to make a more educated decision on college selection and golf scholarship offers. 360 Junior golf is geared towards identifying an individual's golfing needs then providing an integrated training model to meet those specific needs. Power yoga is included as an integral part of the athletes' training program.

*QUEEN CITY STARS LACROSSE TEAM - Each athlete selected to a Queen City team is an exceptional lacrosse player and, therefore, the coaches treat these teams exceptionally. Our goal is to make the athletes better lacrosse players – improve individual and team skill, improve their knowledge and sense of the game and improve their confidence in what they already do well and confidence in knowing that they will succeed as they develop new skill sets. As a result, it is our job to frame the groundwork for their success, expand their talent and provide exceptional opportunities to showcase that talent. Power yoga was included as an integral part of the athletes' training program.

Finding my Center in Tennessee

I could have also entitled this post, "Holy jeez, what is happening." I just picked up and moved our family to a temporary corporate apartment in Brentwood, TN for Rick's job. My baby chose this moving week to start crawling, pulling up, sprouting another tooth, and changing his nap times. My dog is revolting against the tiny apartment and being walked on a leash instead of running free. And I'm going nuts trying to work, take care of us, and find some sanity.

I went to my first yoga class in TN yesterday, a nice class at the YMCA (the Y's here, by the way, are the nicest ones I've seen anywhere. And we thought the ones in NC were good!). By "nice class" I mean it was slow as molasses, no flow, and not challenging - just not a good fit for my style. However the teacher was experienced and thoughtful, and the class was full of people who, it was clear, loved this class and came regularly. The gentleman next to whom I placed my mat said, "have you been to Joe's class before? It's great - he doesn't push you very hard." Eesh.

With this great departure from what I know and expect and love in my yoga practice, I really had to focus to find my intention and purpose for that hour. "You need yoga today, whatever form it comes in physically," I told myself. In doing so, I realized this was so applicable to my life which has been turned upside down this week. With SO much else going on around us, I needed to just breathe through it, and find my center, and be confident that I have absolutely everything that I need at my core. Everything else can just buzz around me, and as I am centered, so my day will go. So throughout this class that was super-boring physically to me, I had this awesome mental breakthrough that helped me get perspective on where I am. My life - this week or any other week - is not about where I'm living, or how I'm walking the dog, or how much or when my son naps. I have everything I need, all this power to be positive, lighthearted, and open to new possibilities, at my core. It lives in me, not in our tiny, temporary, 3rd floor walk-up digs!

Baron said many times at Teacher Training that we CHOOSE how to be, we CHOOSE how to live our lives, we CHOOSE to let things define us (or not). This whole week I had been letting myself choose to be mad, annoyed, frustrated! And it was getting me nowhere. Time to let it go, YEAH! What a great feeling. I've opened up all of this new space to find the blessings in our new situation. Time to be "up to something" in Nashville, y'all....
