I know it's been a while since my last post, but let's admit it's been a rough couple of years for everyone:
A worldwide pandemic that killed millions and sickened millions more that STILL isn't quite over (some due to the novel virus itself, some because many were afraid to get medical care for other issues BECAUSE of the virus, some because the virus was one more nail in coffin...).,
An economic that threw millions out of work as the world shut down (I was one of them),
The emotional toll the above two things have imposed on EVERYONE: those who lost family and friends, those whose children have suffered from the sudden shift to online learning, those who had to figure out how to get the financial help they needed in time to pay the bills that didn't stop coming, those who had to find work in other fields once the financial assistance came to an end.
While many yoga therapists and Ayurvedic professionals were able to restart their businesses (some were already offering online programs, some easily transitioned to that platform, some had other resources to draw on), I needed some time to figure out the right time and the right place to begin again.
I've found the place where I can begin again, an innovative and integrative wellness practice being birthed by one of my former yoga students! A brilliant and humble young man who told me many years ago that my yoga course at UMBC had changed the trajectory of his life, he has graciously offered to help me rebuild my dream and fulfill my life's purpose: to help others learn the skills and love the process of using the tools that yoga therapy and Ayurveda offer to us as we navigate the twists, turns, and challenges of living in a world that sometimes seems to have gone mad.
More will be forthcoming as our plans coalesce...
