Excitements

This is the juicy time, the time of the blank calendar, the time of endless possibilities, the time to state, in no uncertain terms, what I want.

I’m a resolution maker, but this year I am changing the word “resolution” to “excitement.”  I am not asking, “What do I want in the coming year?” but rather, “What would make me exited in the coming year?”

So, here it is:

1. The Book (aka “The Manual”)  A lot of people say that they have a book in them, and I am one of them.  I have bits and scraps and pieces that need to be assembled into something that has a beginning, a middle and an end.  But my “excitement” is to FINISH IT.  It doesn’t have to be good, it just has to be DONE.  This is my main excitement for 2010.

2. The Body. I am so excited about taking my physical body to its peak of health and vitality, strength, endurance and flexibility.  I am starting this new year with a detox (in February) and I’m looking forward to ramping up my strength and endurance and taking it to a whole new level this year.

3. Yoga.  Personal Sadhana: I have absolutely fallen in love with Pranakriya Yoga.  This year I will continue to train with Yoganand and practice and grow my sadhana.  I also love Ashtanga and my morning practice with Christine & Co. and I will continue to get up early and breathe and grow and evolve in that practice.

The Studio: I want to keep growing the community of the studio with not only classes but other events: films, workshops, casual get-togethers.  The Lounge is a complete blessing and I want to exploit it more.  I would also love to see more people come and at least try a class.

Those are my excitements for 2010.  What are you exited about?  What are you going to rock this year?

I’m a small town yoga teacher who says motherfucker a lot. I hate anything woo. I’m into neuroscience. And facts. I’ll lead the chanting of “om” sometimes, but it makes me feel awkward. I want to access flow states. As far as yoga helps me do that, I’m into it. Dopamine is my fave neurotransmitter. Don’t tell anyone I told you this.

  1. great to hear your looking forward to excitement this coming year… happy new year btw,

    two ideas:

    1) for your get togethers/workshops… i was trying for my last two years at MU to get a casual “Writing Down The Bones/Journal” type group going… maybe a yoga studio would be the perfect venue?

    2) I know a RA who would probably love to do a floor program at your studio, which might raise more interest. if your interested shoot me an e-mail!

    peace!

  2. I will keep up my streak this year and I also am working on the “book inside” tough going but I would like to be a little more organized about it. These are a few of my goals for 2010.
