It was July 19th 2011, when I facebooked a note about an Aha moment that resulted from an exercise class which I surprizingly knew I wasn't ever going back to. Here is just a part of what I wrote..."I walked into this studio really hoping to find a place where I can get refocused and centered. The other area where I felt this class lacked was the inspiration to look at myself, really look inside and push myself, feed my spirit and take note to the beauty of that moment. As a mother, we are so wrapped up in our kids moments that we forget to take the time to look inside and remind ourselves of who we are, that deeper place that needs to always be fed and nurtured. I needed this class to not only be a physical challenge but one that puts me in another place in time. "
It has taken me 6 months to find a place where I can focus on me and continue to explore my spiritual growth. I recently found a home, a teacher, and am ready to start my long awaited journey. This journey will take me thru 40 days of yoga practice, spiritual growth and a transformation of my mind, body and spirit. Being who I am, I am mostly present in my work (which I absolutely love) yet as a result, I have been hiding behind it and avoiding the signs that kept showing up at different times and places. It is finally time to unravel the inner self again and embark on the journey towards an awakened spirit. Ive learned that the word yoga means "to join one point to another," "to leave one place, space, condition and move toward a better one." Where I am going, I dont really know, but I promise to take you with me and share what I am learning along the way. I invite you on this journey as I am going anyway and the results will be life changing!
So today was definitely a different day from the rest. I woke up at 4am very excited about our new website www.LIfitMoms.com and started my work day. I then notice Maya getting up at 8:00am only to give us 30 minutes to get her washed up, breakfast, dressed and do some of the homework we didn't get to yesterday. Needless to say it was a mad rush to get her on the bus, so I decided that instead of taking the time to lace up my sneakers, I'd just put on some slip on boots to take her to the bus stop. I then headed to the Source Mall for my first class in 2012 all giddy about the new year, getting back into a routine again, seeing all our moms after missing them all week, thinking of the exercises I wanted to do today, the launch of our new website and having our classes back at the mall. Like most moms, a lot goes thru my head as I drive to class in the mornings! Concerned I would be late, I did my best to get thru the traffic that was caused by an accident on the meadowbrook. I quickly parked, geared up my stroller and headed into our new warm up spot at the mall so excited to see all the mommy and kiddy faces that awaited me. So as I am warming up I look down at my feet and notice I am still wearing my boots...This is a definite 1st for me! Not even two minutes later, Sharan, one of our instructors let us know that someone has left their car door wide open. What do ya know...Its mine! So granted I had one of those mornings, but nothing changed the way I felt and what I was determined to have today....it was going to be a great class and a great day! Even if class was taught in boots and half a brain! :0)
It was only a few hours ago when I started asking around about having a website so that our Long Island moms can have all our programs highlighted and they can explore fitness and fun all in one! Here I am excited to launch our website and am writing my very first, of what will likely be many, blog post! SO excited to share my joy with you. It was one of the most enjoyable experiences looking thru 5 years worth of pictures, videos, articles, etc. As I enter 2012, I am infused with so much enthusiasm and can not wait to take this year by storm! WELCOME 2012 and WELCOME www.LIfitMoms.com Lets ROLL!
Nothing is Impossible!
