When Yoga Meets Pilates

I'm teaching a yoga-lates class every Tuesday from 11:30-12:30 and Thursdays from 12:30-1:30 at Rock Church! (and probably Saturday mornings at 9:30 AM if there is enough of a response...not starting until March 14th)

It's a very holistic exercise class...aiming to improve alignment, strength, flexibility and breathing to relieve stress/relax.

In this hour, we let our worries go...and let our bodies have a breath of fresh air! Haha.  It's awesome. God has created our bodies so perfectly...the way they move and the way we've been blessed to move is SO AMAZING!  

My desire to become certified was inspired by a wonderful woman of God, Jeannine, who taught me how to love my body and really praise the Lord with it.  She was this GORGEOUS curly dark-haired, spunky, fun, amazing woman who came into my life for a short time when I was at Wheaton. She taught yoga, pilates, and ZUMBA! and MAN, could this woman dance.  She spoke fluent Spanish (also something I am working at learning)...I think she was from Brazil.  

I love people who inspire me to be a better human being. Especially those who you actually get to MEET! (and not just read)

PS. This is a very important, exciting day in my life. WE GOT INTERNET AT HOME! haha, so hopefully I will be online more.  We are finally normal and I can post in my jammies with a cup of coffee every morning!
