You may or may not have noticed that I haven’t posted much on my blog lately. You may or may not have been wondering what I’ve been up to instead. Well, I’ve been spending less time here:
And a whole lot of time here:
This past summer, a yoga studio opened here in Mayberry. You might not think that Mayberry is a likely place for yoga to take off and admittedly, Aunt Bea has not yet donned yoga pants and tried a class, but surprisingly, Mayberry has embraced yoga in a big way. Because the truth is that yoga is for just about everybody – all ages, sizes, shapes and abilities (or lack thereof).
I had never done yoga before, but I started taking some classes. Then I took more classes and now I can’t seem to stop. In fact, I’ve become such a fan and spend so much time there that I’m now the Director of Communications for Sacred Space. It’s the perfect job for me – I can continue to freelance for other clients, I can set my own hours, perform my duties in the comfort of yoga pants (okay, I always write and work in yoga pants, but now I write and work in yoga pants that I’ve actually worn to yoga, so they’re sort of like an official uniform), and I get the remarkable perk of unlimited yoga classes.
If you’ve never tried yoga, you may think it’s only for young, thin, flexible women who look super annoyingly cute in yoga clothes. I am none of those things and neither are most of the people who practice yoga. You simply show up and start from where you are and you’ll likely end up feeling calmer, more energized and, as one of our clients said, “we leave your studio feeling like a better version of ourselves.”
If you’re ever Mount Airy, NC, come on in and do some yoga with us – we’ll make y’all feel right at home!
