It’s criminal. And I’m feeling haggard, stressed and like a complete fraud.
I teach yoga because I love it and I strongly believe in its restorative power… You’ve heard me go on and on about it. But these days, along with my full-time job, I teach two evening classes during the week and two more classes every other weekend. I also run, spin and occasionally weightlift… All of this while maintaining this blog, hanging out with friends, spending quality time with the hubs and giving myself some down time. And I need PLENTY of down time.
So where does my personal yoga practice fit into all of this? I don’t know. But something has to give…
But what? I love my students and I love teaching but it’s just not the same as being a student and allowing myself to be fully immersed. And writing? Well, I’ve always wanted to write and now I finally get to! Did I mention that I like to read and I have so many books I’ll die before I can read them all?
But ultimately, can I really be an effective yoga teacher without taking yoga myself?
The answer is no.
So what do you do when the life you’ve worked so hard to create turns on you and starts beating the crap out of you?
