This week I was notified that I would no longer be able to rent the space I was using to teach yoga. Interestingly, that very same day I had this moment when my inner voice was thinking of the possibility of taking a yoga teaching sabbatical. Then, I was actually given the opportunity to take one. Gotta love synchronicity.
I have been teaching yoga classes non-stop for over 10 years and group exercise classes for another 3 prior to that. I don't really know what it's like to come home directly from my day job and have the entire evening free to do with as I want. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE teaching yoga, but I also want to know what it's like to be completely done with responsibility after a days work. On Mondays, I leave for work by by 7:00 a.m. and don't get home until 6:00 p.m. Wednesdays I leave at 7:00 and don't get home until 7:00 p.m. It can make for some long days, and I am looking forward to having more evenings free. I am also looking forward to being able to attend more yoga classes. As an instructor, it can be difficult, although incredibly important to go to classes.
I know that this yoga teaching sabbatical will most likely not last long, as instructing yoga is a passion of mine. But in the meantime, I'm going to just enjoy the adventure of change!
