The places life takes you are often different than we expect. We all know examples of this.
About two and a half years ago, at a party, a friend was telling me about his new venture in life: teaching yoga. Off-handedly he mentioned that he thought I’d be good at it, and for the first time ever I thought seriously about the idea. I loved yoga, after all, and truly believed it would enrich other peoples’ lives.
A year later I was in the midst of my teacher training. Not long after that I met with the managers of BCIT’s rec program and got set up to teach in the Fall.
Now, a year after that, I’ve realized I won’t be going back. Some life-type circumstances have come up, and it looks like I win’t be teaching in a regular class environment for a little while.
It’s sad to say goodbye. There are a lot if things I loved about teaching at BCIT, including a great crew of students who I got to know well over the course of the year.
I’ll miss everyone there a lot, but it’s really awesome to know I’m following the new path my life is taking. Who knows where it will go, but I know that yoga will always be a part of it, as well as theatre. Aside from that, all I’ve got is some adventure ahead.
