Where Do We Go From Here?

My summer schedule for school is quite interesting. I am currently taking a class related to the physiological changes of aging. I wouldn’t go so far as to say that I have gerascophobia, but I do admit not enjoying the thought of aging. I’m some where in between Dylan Thomas and Robert Browning when it comes to aging. Logically, I know to accept it, and honestly I don’t really do anything in an attempt to prevent it. However, I have always felt like I haven’t done enough. I still feel like a 16 year old, but at least now I have a more clear path on what I want to do. I think before I had a path, but I couldn’t clearly articulate what that path was. I just wanted something to do.

This is just in the background, and doesn’t really surface to often. I totally understand that it’s clinging, and I just need to acknowledge the emotion, but the class tends to bring up these thoughts. This initial section is mostly approaching the topic from a philosophical direction before we being to dive into actually biological changes.

In other news I decided to sign up for a yoga teaching course. I know I seem all over the place, but actually it falls in line with the plan. So, far it’s been really fun. I have to complete the course before Dec 31 in order to be certified with Yoga Alliance. I should be able to finish up everything by Sept. if I stick to the plan.

I’m excited by the teaching requirements of the course, and this will allow me to finally start making some videos. I’m trying to figure out how to get my coaching business started. I have been attempting this for some time, but I have a greater pressure to make it happen. I know I can do it….

  1. How exciting re: yoga teaching! I never really had a plan. I still mostly don’t. Sure wish I did though.

    • It has taken a long time for me to know what I want to be when I grow up. I have been interested in teaching fitness/coaching for some time. The physical therapist thing is something that came about due to my mother’s situation. Learning how important it is to keep active and moving as we age has really lead me towards that path. However, PT school is really expensive. So, I’m looking for options to progress in the field from various directions. The yoga thing has always been an interest, and this year is the presents the opportunity.
