As some of my readers may already know, I am nearing the end of my yoga teacher training (YTT) certification program. I will graduate in June. YTT has already completely transformed my life. I can vividly remember talking to my husband about whether or not I should enroll in YTT. I was going back and forth, wrestling with the thoughts in my head as I used to do so often. And then I decided to notice how I felt. I said, "I'm going to do it," and the feeling that washed over me allowed me to see that this was the absolute next best step in my journey.
In an effort to better capture the entirety of my spiritual work, I've said goodbye to The Zebra Coach brand and website, at least for now. One of my teachers once told our class to "write it all in pencil."
As I sat down to write down ideas for my updated website name and vision, I struggled to find a way to bring it all together. And then I got in the shower, because that's what I do when I get stuck. And like clockwork, it came to me: my work is about helping people to return to the core of who they really are. Apparently I'm not the only one who experiences shower-based clarity.
As I processed how to bring this vision into a easy to remember website URL, I remembered a phrase I've been saying in my yoga teaching: the core of your core. I've been closely following the work of Michaelle Edwards who developed the YogAlign system. Michaelle writes about the importance of the psoas muscle, the core of our core.
I'm beyond excited and grateful that I'll be studying with Michaelle in a few weeks at the mothership, Kripalu. I can't wait to share what I learn with all of my students.
In addition to finding our core through yoga, I also aim to help clients find their core self through my career coaching. I practice a unique form of coaching called Career Intuitive Coaching. I also write often on yoga and spirituality. Again, in my writing, my highest goal is to help inspire my readers to find their true selves.
I thank you for sticking with me as I continue to write my life in pencil.
