It has been a long time dream of mine to become a studio owner, and it has finally come to fruition.
It has been 3 years of working for myself & putting myself out there, at various venues in the shire.
Starting up on my own straight after my training was a huge thing for me!
I never saw myself as a teacher of any sort- I felt that I was shy and felt totally scared to get up in front of people. Funny that when i was younger i didn't shy away from a good performance of any sort!
Yoga has been in my life for many years, beginning with a practicing with Yoga Tape with mum - fitting in some exercise before school & college. I then had dabbled in some Bikram and finally landed in HYA yoga in Cronulla (formally known as Hot Yogi). I found MY style of yoga! And it felt like home!
Not long after finding this space I was eager to learn more!
Yoga Teacher training it was!
I set off to the magical Costa Rica for a month intensive 200hr teacher training, not knowing my life would be forever changed!
I have never looked back. I grew, I learnt, I found confidence & strength I never knew I had.
I couldn’t wait to share the knowledge I learnt over there!
I remember starting classes in a community hall in Cronulla- so nervous to speak out in front of the curious eyes starring at me!
It felt scary, and amazing at the same time! I wanted to make this my full time job, even though at times I had people say it wasn’t a good idea.
I kept on showing up! and showing up, dedicated to just teach and share this powerful practice!
Sometimes id get 6 people (amazing) sometimes I wouldn’t get any! (More time for self practice) Each class was and has been a blessing and teaching in itself.
It has been years of peeling off layers (yoga tends to do this self inquiry stuff) to find confidence again and courage to get up and show up.
I am deeply grateful for my ‘job’, all of my students that I get to guide and the all spaces that I teach and have taught in.
They have paved the way to where I am now.
Dreams do come true- Keep on putting your wants and dreams out there! they WILL come to light. It may take some patience & a humble attitude, but trust & find that deeper knowing that everything will come in its right time!
Now I’m on this different path - and no doubt there is lots to learn and more to grow from. Its humbling to know that I am forever learning, always a student & that this journey is a never ending one- ever evolving!
Looking forward to seeing you on the mat!
or in the New space!
