Feeling Torn

So. It’s late and I’m tired and I am thinking about what I am going to do with this blog once April rolls around (the day after tomorrow).

I have this other blog I write on in April called Virtual Yogarians.  It’s a “multi-user” blog in which anyone who is attempting the Challenge is invited to comment and even post. I intend to write on that blog every day in April, but I don’t want to totally abandon this blog during that time either. (Plus, it is my Lenten challenge to write everyday until Easter, which is April 8th, so I am committed for at least that long.)

So I am trying to think of a way to compartmentalize my life so that I restrict “yoga talk” to Virtual Yogarians and everything else to this blog.

Trouble is, in April, my whole life is yoga. I will be teaching 67 classes in 30 days. When you teach that much yoga, yoga kinda dominates your mind, and your life, if you catch my drift.

So I am wondering: what kinds of things might I write about here that don’t have anything to do with teaching yoga, yet will still be of interest to my readers who don’t really give a rat’s ass about yoga.

Suggestions?

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. Just write about your life, Kathleen, and we are sure to read all about it. You don’t have to worry about it too much. Just be yourself. As for yoga, it matters for some and for others it does not matter, so do not try to please everybody. Just be true to your authentic self and write from your heart. That would be my suggestion. Have a great day and keep up the good work.
    Cheers to your wonderful life and may the force be always with you.

  2. I agree…dive in to the yoga challenge 100%…I can only speak for myself, but I will be here when you come back…in fact I just checked out your other blog, Amazing! I need to meditate on it, but I think I want to do the virtual challenge???? I miss my yoga studio (The Golden Bridge) and teacher (Gurmukh) in LA , I NEED to find a better practice on the road! I have never been able to master- taking my yoga with me…I wait till I can get- to yoga! That needs to change!

    1. Oh boy, would I ever love it if YOU joined the challenge and blogged at Virtual Yogarians! Wo. How cool would THAT be? Think about it, k? Anyway, what I really want to tell you, if you don’t know about it already is “Yoga Today.” http://www.yogatoday.com offers a free class every week, and if you subscribe, you get your pick of a bizzillion classes. The instruction is super! And the backdrop is the Tetons! I never got into yoga DVDs, but I totally love the classes on Yoga Today and I think with your on-the-go lifestyle, it would be a great way to get your practice back. Thanks, as always for the great comments!

      1. I give a hearty second vote to YogaToday as well! I wouldn’t promote it if Kath hadn’t first, though, since my loyalty needs to be local first. The founder/producer is actually a teammate of mine from college. She’s originally from Rochester NY. But, I fell in love with the site before I knew who ran it! Gorgeous scenery, oh goodness.

    1. Hey, send me your email and I’ll add you as an “Author” on the blog. If you don’t want to post, you can just use the comment box to check in. But since you’re already a WordPress user, why not post, eh? I also want to put your name on the board in the studio as a “Virtual.”
      My email is:
      mainstreetyoga@gmail.com

      And yep! Here we go!
