January 1st, 2014
This has been a whirlwind year for me with both good and bad things, such as dealing with a broken ankle to losing my beloved granny. It was also year of great accomplishments, with the first being that I am in good health after fully recovering from heart surgery. The biggest highlight of the year was fulfilling my goal to become a yoga teacher. Being a long time yogini I have always wanted to share my passion for yoga since it’s such a big part of my life. Over the past years I have shared my yoga experiences through my column and blog but now I have a new avenue to share my yoga experience with those with physical limitations like myself.
This is the time to recommit and make new goals to lead to new adventures. One of my commitments is to stay fit with eating healthy and my daily yoga and Pilates practice. I also vow to continue empowering people through my column and blog talking about disability issues and my life.
As for my goals I will be working to build my new venture of teaching chair yoga. I began this journey in October when I was a faculty assistant for teaching a seminar at Kripalu for the students to become certified to teach chair yoga. I very much look forward to helping others enjoy the benefits of yoga.
I have also decided its time to start writing a book about living with disabilities with the hopes of inspiring people with my experiences. I am excited to see what this New Year brings.
