Remember a while back I told you that I was overwhelmed with everything going on in life?

Well, there must have been something about turning 28 – yesterday!  Some desire to learn something, aquire new skills, participate in something new and exciting that I just couldn’t get out of my head.

(Cupcakes were also part of turning 28)

Last weekend  I signed up for a photography class. Then a photoshop class. (They go hand in hand you know.) And in the following 24 hours I got this “grand” idea that I should attend the upcoming Core Power Yoga Sculpt Teacher Training. You see, I’ve always wanted to be a yoga instructor (oddly enough even before I really got into yoga) and have been toying around with the idea of Hot Yoga Teacher Training for quite some time. Yoga sculpt involves significantly less time and money and I figure it will be the perfect intro to see if teaching yoga is for me. Plus, I can’t wait to teach some classes for the kids at camp.

So in the name of slowing down, I’ve been at yoga teacher training all weekend. It might just be what I needed…

Crazy? Probably a little.  But somehow I find a way to justify it. ;)

    You’re the ultimate bag lady :) Look at all of that stuff!

    I hope you had a lovely birthday and good for you for signing up for those classes. I’ve been itching to do something like that as well. I actually really miss being in school!

      Of course! I’m taking the DSLR and photoshop classes through Minneapolis Community Education. They are very reasonable and will hopefully be very helpful!

    • Emily says

      Ha! I probably do. :)
      It will be a while before I would be teaching adults but I’ll definitely keep you posted!

    Happy Birthday, girl! I went through CPY Hot Power Fusion teacher training last year in San Diego and it seriously changed my life! Good luck in the coming weeks/months! Things can get hectic trying to balance work/school/yoga or whatever, but it’s totally worth it in the end!

    First of all congrats on the 2 yrs of blogging and Happy Birthday! I was 28 when we moved to Brazil and that is when those exact feelings started for me. I thought, there has to be more, and I wanted to start thinking outside the box and DO more with my time. Even though I always felt busy, I wasn’t gaining much new knowledge. I’m happy to tell you that it continues at least throughout 32. :) Running, language, photography, blogging, publishing, gardening and knitting are all things I’ve taken on in that time. I can’t wait to hear more about this yoga instruction. Sounds great! You are inspiring!

    Happy belated birthday! I laughed at your photo because you look just like I do when going out the door. Lunch bag, purse, yoga mat, yoga clothes, post-yoga clothes, camera bag, laptop…it’s nuts, isn’t it?
