My BIG News!

I have 2 very exciting things to share with you too!  Some of you know this already, but I was hired to start teaching yoga at a studio in Minneapolis!  I'll be starting shortly at Yoga Sanctuary and I am so excited about it!  I took a class there a few weeks ago and loved the vibe, so I contacted the owner who invited me to come in for one of her classes and to chat.  Turns out, we have some crazy connections that go back to when I was in high school!  Yoga Sanctuary is a beautiful little studio located in the basement of Solomon's Porch, which is "A holistic, missional, Christian community" but Yoga Sanctuary is not affiliated with any religion and welcomes all people, though it does recognize that yoga is a spiritual practice for a lot of people.  It's so crazy, because I used to hang out at Solomon's Porch all the time when I was in high school.  Back then, it was located in a loft space in the Linden Hills neighborhood in Minneapolis.  It was this cool open room full of old couches with a drum set and stage set up.  I hung out with a pretty musical/artistic group and we used to all hang out there at night playing music...seems like so long ago now!

Anyway, I am now on their subbing list- so I will be filling in if a teacher can't make it to their class.  I am also going to be teaching at 9:15 on Sunday mornings for the Karma/Donation class. A few teachers rotate in this class, but I will let you know when I am teaching if you want to come!  Of course, I would love to see some of my lovely readers there!

I thought this little sentiment was appropriate for both pieces of news that I have for you.  I have decided to make a big change that will certainly add to my happiness.  Yesterday, around 1pm, I walked into my boss's office (at Hennepin County Medical Center) and gave my 2 weeks notice.  After spending 3 years in inpatient psychiatry here, my last day here will be August 5th.  I am going to miss some parts of this job, but I am really happy that I will be working only with eating disorders at Melrose and teaching yoga from now on. 

I am very grateful to be able to make these changes, I feel so luck that I get to do something I love for a living. What are you thankful for today?  Share with all of us by visiting Steph and linking up!
