THE ONLY THING CONSTANT IS CHANGE

One of the instructors at Whole Life Yoga was injured two days ago and will be unable to teach for the next few weeks. So there's been a whole lot of schedule shuffling and re-arranging.

That Energize and Strengthen series that I was going to start this Saturday? It's canceled.

Instead, I will be teaching a Core Strength class, which is a four-week series that starts this Sunday the 12th at 9:00 AM.

And for the next month or two I will be subbing the injured instructor's All-levels Drop-in class, Fridays at 8:00 - 9:15 AM.

Whole Life Yoga has been nominated for best yoga studio in Western Washington! Please support WLY and vote!

And more change: My baby turned 24!

Here's a photo of the Baby Surprise Jacket in progress, that I'm using as a teaching tool while teaching my expectant friend to knit. I've never made one of these before and I've been imagining all sorts of striping color combinations. Predictably, I started over, several times, with other colorways before I settled on this one. I'm using up some stash yarn ... but, naturally, that had to get supplemented with some purchased yarn, too.

BLOG ANNIVERSARY AHEAD

I am sure that long-time readers of this blog are feeling like they have flipped to The Yoga Channel. Looking back over my blog -- where it came from, where it's been, where it might be going -- blogging has meant different things to me at different times. My original vision, the idea behind "Ideaphoria," was that I was going to be a creativity coach, back in 2004, and use this blog to write inspiring posts. That career never really came to be.

Instead, this blog morphed into a place to promote Two Swans Yarns, as well as a place to post my personal knitting and fiber adventures. It also became a convenient place to post family news, for those readers who are family members. And currently, I see it as a place to post news about my adventures in yoga, both as a student and as a teacher. To wit:

I will be teaching an All-levels Drop-in class at Whole Life Yoga in Greenwood. It's at 6:15 AM -- don't laugh! -- on Tuesday mornings. (I have often taken the M/W/F 6:15 AM class, so I feel great about starting a 6:15 AM class.) This class begins September 7.

I will be teaching a series at Whole LIfe Yoga in Greenwood. This series is "Energize and Strengthen" and will be Saturday mornings from 9:00 - 10:15 AM, September 11 through October 16.

I also will be teaching at Heartbeat Healing Arts in downtown Kent. Also on Tuesdays, this class will be at 6:15 - 7:30 in the evening. This All-levels Drop-in class will begin September 21.

I am THRILLED!!!! to be offered these classes at these studios. And I am very excited to share my joy in yoga with other people.

And I am continuing to teach an All-levels Drop-in class on Thursday evenings at Seattle Viniyoga, 6:15 - 7:30 PM.

Is there any fiber news, any at all? Currently on the needles is a Baby Surprise Jacket, and currently on the warping board is some CottoLin for some dishtowels.
