April is still the most beautiful month in the Piedmont region of North Carolina. Everything is bursting with spring energy!
It's been a fantastic couple of weeks:
Yoga teacher training is going fabulously well. I am learning about yoga poses, but I am learning so much more about myself. Big thanks to Allison Dennis at Open Heart for guiding me and my thirteen classmates through this transformative journey. So much love to Allison, Ti Harmony, and Open Heart!! Speaking of Ti, I am taking a Mantra and Kirtan class with him for the next few weeks. (I didn't have enough to do--ha!) I'm finding that, of all the yoga practices, chanting is the most powerful for me. It focuses my mind and just generally brings good vibes all around. John is an amazing musician, and he and his friend played guitar and keys while we chanted the Gayatri mantra together at our house for two hours the other night. Bliss! John's friend even called us last night, asking us if we wanted to chant again.
