Yesterday I woke to an email from Moksha Yoga Guelph (MYG). While I normally get email updates from the studio regarding classes, offers, events, and such like, today’s email was different. It was to remind me that August 22nd marked my 2 year yoga anniversary. That is to write, 2 years ago I took my very first yoga class with MYG, and to be completely honest, my first yoga class ever.
How did my yoga journey even start? Well, for that I blame my friend Lara. She called me up one day and asked if I wanted to join her. Having never gone, but knowing that it would be a huge benefit to me (especially considering all of the running I was doing), I said yes. Worse case scenario; I would go, not really enjoy it so much, but at least get some time to hang out with Lara. Best case scenario; this would become a part of my daily routine.
Of course, if you’ve been following along with my adventures here on Consumed By Wanderlust you know the outcome. Yoga has become an integral part of my life. Apart from the recent recovery phase of my surgery, I typically practice in the morning as a way to start my day, get the blood flowing, ultimately prepping for whatever might be thrown at me. I also make a point of trying to hit up the studio as often as I can. The MYG community is fantastic. I have met a lot of people, made a lot of friends, and thoroughly enjoy the positive energy that comes with practicing with a group. The instructors are amazing, and are genuinely interested in what the students are passionate about. They get to know you by name, offer an endless supply of smiles, and in some cases, an endless supply of hugs (something that I love).
While I have been to the studio twice since my surgery, I’m looking forward to getting back to a more regular schedule. And if all goes well, I’ll be starting another 30 day challenge very soon.
Anyway, a huge thanks to MYG. It has been a great couple of years and I can’t wait to see how the next several years play out.
