Changing gears...

This blog began as a way for me to inform my friends about when I'd be teaching yoga practices. While yoga is still a large part of my life, I haven't taught in well over a year. Part of me wants to teach again as soon as possible, but the truth is that I just can't access that part of myself right now. I have a lot of healing in my own body to focus on, so my yoga practices need to be dedicated to me and I don't feel that I have much to offer to others right now. Beyond that, my schedule is too inconsistent and I don't feel grounded enough to offer classes. I am sure that I will get into teaching again one day, but for now, you won't see yoga schedules here!

In the past year, I have felt a strong need to nurture my creative side. I've enjoyed making cards and gifts for people, and I am learning to sew. Additionally, I have been frustrated with my clothing and the way it fits me, so I am very interested in learning to mend and sew my own clothes. It's kind of a frustrating process on your own, so I have started following some sewing and DIY blogs to get ideas and inspiration, and learn techniques. There is an active, vibrant and supportive community of home sewists online, and I've decided to join them. I intend to blog my adventures here (when I can find the time). Journaling or writing letters have always been good outlets for me, and since I already have the blog set up, here I go! It's okay if you don't want to follow the blog anymore. It's okay if no one wants to follow it. I'm just going to write about whatever the heck I want, so there!
