Its amazing how time flies...

Holy cow!  The past five months have flown by and all of a sudden summer is over and its back to work.  And life.  And all that comes in between.  Its been a crazy few months with some sadness (my dad passing), some happiness (seeing great family and friends), and loads of airplane travel, terrific food, and of course yoga.

Now that I'm back in Jakarta and life is slowly returning to normal, I am getting back into my routine.  Which includes this blog!  I am really excited for this next year at my school because the idea of teaching yoga/meditation/mindfulness to kids is really catching on.  This year teachers, kids, other faculty and staff, etc. are starting off each morning with 15-20 minutes of movement.  Every day I'll be in a different classroom leading a mini yoga class to kick off their day.  On Fridays I'll be teaching yoga to 3rd-5th graders until October and then switching to K-2 until December.  Hopefully enough middle-school students sign up for my Thursday after school class, and I'm also hoping to coordinate with a group of parents here to be my "guinea pigs" for a "yoga at home" parent training course.  And to top it off I begin the Mindful Schools Curriculum Training on September 9th! Oh yeah - and then my own personal practice :) I am starting to practice with an Iyengar teachers this year which I am thrilled about.  Proper alignment in yoga is so important to me and I'm always looking for new insight into how to make my personal practice stronger.

Whew - all that and my regular job as a speech-language pathologist (which I secretly tie yoga and mindfulness into when I can :)).  It's going to be a fantastic year full of new opportunities!   Stay tuned...
