Growth is an amazing thing.
Even before I became a certified yoga instructor I knew I wanted to be in business for myself. I like being my own boss, and having flexibility to plan my life the way I want it to be. Being self-employed involves a lot of risk, and a lot of hard work, but it brings a deep sense of satisfaction.
I have been very fortunate this year, being employed part-time as a Child and Youth Worker has given me the opportunity continue growing my yoga business. After a year investing in it’s growth, it is once again flourishing. There is an ebb and flow with this work, and I finally feel connected to it’s rhythm.
Once again I find myself being drawn to invest in my own studio space. This was something I thought impossible, after five years of overwhelming costs running my own studio between 2005-2010. Three years later, the cost of running around and renting space from other’s is proving to not be much cheaper; and it leaves little room for growth. More classes, workshops or teaching a Yoga Teacher Training then add to my expenses.
I have always had big dreams. In the past I have acted on them impulsively, this time I will act on them from a much more realistic perspective. Slowly and thoroughly, and giving myself lots of time and space to continue this growth.
Gratitude to everyone who has been supporting The Gentle Way Of Hatha through 2013! Yoga has been such a blessing in my life, and it is even more of a blessing to be able to make it accessible to others.
Stay tuned for new classes coming in November!
