I became a full time yoga teacher four years ago because I wanted to have freedom. I thought it would give me the ability to travel on a whim and experience true freedom with how I wanted to spend my time. However, I personally found that teaching 10+ classes a week was actually more restricting than working a corporate job (I know not everyone feels this way, but this is my truth). It wasn’t as easy to pick up and go as I’d imagined. I had this vision in my mind of being able to go anywhere I wanted, with my dog, and work. This was the type of freedom I wanted all along. Years later, I finally found the right work situation to make that happen (working for Dana Farber part time on an amazing study that I really care about, and creating amazing yoga events, retreats, and taking personal health coaching clients). I’m spending this week in Vermont, staying at my parents house, taking in that clean air, going to the local farms, hanging out with my dog, and working from home for Dana Farber, and planning some yoga events. It’s crazy how I am finally able to make my dream of working remotely come true. After spending a beautiful and inspiring weekend at the @backcountryyoga outdoor guide yoga teacher training, I’m reminded just how important it is to spend time reconnecting to the earth, spending time with those you love, and being outside as much as possible. This is an affirmation that you can have whatever your heart desires. Intentions matter. Putting your dreams out there can make it more likely to come true. Give yourself permission to try different things until you find what you really want in life. You are not stuck.
