In November 2015, I registered for Baptiste Yoga's Level One program with the intent to learn more about Baptiste Yoga and become a better yoga teacher. In January of 2016, I set a goal that I was not only going to be a Baptiste Yoga Teacher, but in 5 years I would own a "power" yoga studio. In February of 2017, I wrote "YES Yoga - MAKE IT A REALITY" in my planner as a goal for 2018.
This photo was taken, by Kyle, in March of 2017 at the top of Arthur's Seat in Edinburgh, almost 4 months after I had Charlotte and about 20 pounds heavier. I had a goal to take Kyle there after I hiked it by myself a few years before. This picture and another were pictures I posted with just the words "YES" in the caption to solidify what I was up to, without being totally transparent.
Today, YES Yoga is alive AND I had a meeting today to further my vision for it. Today, I received my email confirming that I am officially a Certified Baptiste Yoga Teacher, and that I will be apprenticing and in co-creation of the upcoming Level One Program in February.
Thank you to my husband for supporting me through all this and for what is to come. Thank you to names I cannot name for their support, guidance, shoulder to cry on and for picking me up off the floor and telling me to keep pushing forward. 2017 was incredibly challenging, and I learned so much about myself. I am so excited for what is to come. I am a YES for myself and for others.
