Last week I started going to pilates classes again (the last time I went was 3 years ago) and it reminded me how amazing it feels to experience different things in life. Especially when it makes you feel muscles in a way you are not familiar with. LOL.
Recently, I have been feeling like I am trying to put myself into a box. A box that fits it all. But I realized that I can't and that I don't want to. Because I don't fit a particular box. I am a mother, but I am also an entrepreneur.
I am a yoga teacher, but I also enjoy pilates, swimming, and a glass of wine (:
I love my kids and I adore my hubby but sometimes I feel claustrophobic at home and all I want to do is escape for a vipassana retreat.
I teach yoga that is based on my experience and my personal approach and it doesn't have a specific style.
I love the solitude, but I also need a tribe.
I can be joyful with my kids, then have a meltdown and the next hour teach a serious workshop.
I enjoy living in the city, but I recharge in nature.
Most of the time, I am craving silence, but music makes my soul expand.
Cool, dark spaces make me feel safe while a bright and open environment lifts my spirit.
I am a morning person who gets inspired by the moonlight and a sky full of stars.
I am a traditional, wild spirit, educator, mother, business owner, creator, student, and beach lover. I am all of it. And that's my magic.
If you also feel that you are limited by little boxes you are used to being in, remember this: Stop overthinking being YOU, don't struggle to fit any boxes. You are a multi-passionate and creative person and you are unboxable. And that is your secret ingredient. Its my hope that this article will inspire you to come to own ALL pieces of you.

The Art of Teaching Yoga Course was born out of a deep passion for yoga and my experience practicing & teaching this ancient practice for over 15 years. When I just started to teach, I was assured that what students needed the most was the information, but with time I learned that teaching yoga is about seeing others with soft eyes which begins with seeing yourself with soft eyes.
If you are teaching yoga and would love to join one of these workshops, I have an offer for you. Please email me.
Get yourself free. You are multi-dimnetional, You are unboxable. Yours in Yoga,
