Going there to come back....

So, now that all my yoga clients know about this, I can finally post about it in my public blog!

Himself and I are upping tools and moving to Cambridge in September. We both tire of London Life, and crave a quieter, more restful pace. Plus Cambridge is where I grew up and it will be fantastic to be near my family again - I'm a real homebody, who has been away from home for too long.

Himself has a job that is totally transportable so we will be lucky enough to have a very good salary coming in from the off. Now all we have to do is find a house that will accept two very troublesome kitty cats!


I am, therefore, beginning to think about the fact that in less than two months I won't be living in this house, I will have sold my yoga business (I am so blessed to have found two lovely ladies to take over from me) and I will not be teaching yoga. Instead I will (hopefully) have a job back working as a PA (currently registering with agencies and applying for jobs etc), the career I left 18 month ago to teach yoga.

And you know what? All of that sits perfectly with me. I had to do it. I had to leave work and teach yoga full time so that I don't get to 50 and turn around and say "damn I wish I'd done that". I had to go there to come back.

I know teaching yoga will always be in my life. Come the new year I'll set up some pregnancy courses again on Saturday mornings. I'll do my Pilates training and my pregnancy Pilates trianing. Pilates and an anatomical viewpoint seem to be far more where my practice and my teaching are heading.

Everything will come to the place it is meant to be and I'm so excited :)

Congratulations on the move!!! How exciting!
It's funny how we need to leave and experience something new and then feel good about coming back full circle. :)

About your break-up with Ashtanga, you know I was reading about the uproar in the States about the government requiring yoga teachers to be registered- and although I understand fully the yoga-sphere's point of view, yoga injuries occur ever so frequently. Requiring standards would help...

I agree though, I've kept somethings and modified others- too many upward dogs all at once is NOT good for my lower back.
