Yoga has been a part of my life before I knew what yoga actually was. And I’m not talking about being able to bend and twist your body into contortionist postures… I’m referring to a way of being. Seeing the world with open eyes and an open heart, without holding judgment, and recognizing the connection that we all have to one another and to the earth. As a young child I always knew that I wanted to be a teacher, but in what capacity I didn’t know. Even when I went to my first 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training, I did not think that teaching yoga was my calling. I just wanted to know more about the spiritual aspects of the practice. Within the first few days of my program I was inspired, intrigued, and motivated. I knew that I was embarking on the path that I was meant to be on. From that moment forward I knew that I could never know it all, that I would forever be the student on this journey that we call life, and to me that was thrilling.
*I would like to preface this blog post... I am political, but not very vocal about my political views. This was something that I needed to get off my chest, when no American was around to talk too. I think that all people should be educated on their political system. Also, in light of recent events that are happening in the U.S. I hope that people who are unnerved, offended, sickened, and appalled by this election, begin to become more proactive in their political system and communities. This is my actual journal entry.

Today Donald Trump became president. How else do you start this conversation? … This conversation about how the world is completely rattled. Not just the citizens of the United States, but the citizens of the world.
