June is ALL About the Yoga



I mentioned last month that I was trying to do a unique yoga workshop every month this year.  I did well January through April, but didn’t find anything that fit into my busy schedule in May.  Although my mom and I did do an Intro to Aerial Class last week…

I hinted that June was going to be exciting…and now I’ve added some extra fun.  On Wednesday, I am taking a yoga continuing education course.  A coworker and I will spend the day learning about how yoga can help our peds and adult patients and how to market a yoga practice in the clinic. Then…Thursday, I fly out to NYC!  Which is exciting enough.  But, even more fun because I am taking the Rainbow Kids Yoga 3 Day Teacher Training Course!  I am psyched because I will be flying out Thursday morning and will have the entire day to play in the city and meet up with some family members for lunch before spending Friday-Sunday in the training class.  I have arranged to ‘teach’ 3 different age group classes at work this summer and the response has been overwhelming!  So the fact that I am traveling to one of my favorite cities and will learn tons of fun stuff to share with the kids and teens this summer has me dancing in my seat!




On top of all of that, my mom and I have signed up for an Aerial Yoga and Meditation workshop at the end of the month.  Like I said…June will be all about the yoga.  I will be SO Zen by July!



May Goals

1. Cook from cookbooks one recipe a week

     -Not quite met, but I did make this Easy Orange Chicken one week!

2. Go for a bike ride

     -Woo hoo!  I did a warm up bike ride followed by 30 miles on Lake Shore Drive!

3. Register for a fall race

     -I was all set to do this, but then changed my mind on which race I wanted to run.

4. Stay present and enjoy the little moments

     -I have to say that this is where I put my energy this month and it paid off.  Typically, spending 3 straight weekends downtown bouncing from one fun family event to another would have me a little stressed out.  Instead of staying two steps ahead and planning for the next week or weekend, I kept myself in the moment and enjoyed the ride.  I had to make a few compromises to do this…I slept a little less, spent way less time on the computer, haven’t watched a TV show other than the Hawk’s game in weeks and dug into the freezer for some stews and chili for lunch.  But it all worked out tremendously well!  And I learned a lot in the process : )


June Goals

1. Stay healthy and active on vacation (I’m traveling the first two weeks of June)

2. Cook with farmer’s market produce

3. Do some ab exercise daily (I’m working on the LC challenge)

4. Keep strength training

  1. Ahhh this sounds like soo much fun! I can’t wait to hear all about it! Namaste in June to you! I need to find some of these types of classes close to me!

  2. Where was that backpacking/tree pose picture taken? Pretty & fun 🙂 That kid’s yoga class sounds so awesome, but I would go crazy if I was as busy as you are!!

  3. What an awesome opportunity! Can’t wait to hear more about the course. Have a blast! I haven’t had enough yoga in my life lately… heading to class this afternoon!

  4. That’s so cool to be taking that course in NYC! I can’t wait to hear all about it. Good luck on your monthly goals. I am still trying to do my ab challenge too. Not daily but at least 4 times a week although I don’t do the side plank regularly either. Instead I do side bends with weights. 🙂
