Living, learning and loving the life of a GIRL BOSS!
When you’re going through yoga teacher training your thoughts are on things like teaching, anatomy, philosophy, and personal enlightenment. It’s a mindset. Then, the day comes and you complete the training and the business side of teaching yoga hits you. Business cards, schedules, teaching at multiple studios, subbing classes, taxes, financial records, self-promotion, building a class, etc. I’ve been working my butt off learning all that I can about the business of teaching yoga. I can’t say I love the business side of teaching, but it’s necessary to be able to do what I love.

Yoga is so much more than a physical practice.
Find inspiration and wisdom in the connection of body and mind:
Yoga is about clearing away whatever is in us that prevents our living in the most full and whole way. With yoga, we become aware of how and where we are restricted — in body, mind, and heart — and how gradually to open and release these blockages. As these blockages are cleared, our energy is freed. We start to feel more harmonious, more at one with ourselves. Our lives begin to flow — or we begin to flow more in our lives. – Cybele Tomlinson
Yoga teaches us to cure what need not be endured and endure what cannot be cured. – B.K.S. Iyengar

Yoga is the practice of quieting the mind. – Patanjali, The Yoga Sutras
Yoga is like music. The rhythm of the body, the melody of the mind, and the harmony of the soul create the symphony of life. – B.K.S. Iyengar
When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all of your thoughts break their bonds. Your mind transcends limitations; your consciousness expands in every direction; and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive and you discover yourself to be a greater person than you ever dreamed yourself to be. – Patanjali, The Yoga Sutras
