24 Hours Till Lift Off

Well, with less than 24 hours until I fly out I'm starting to feel some angst. Mostly excitement, but there is a growing knot in my stomach that I have been carrying around for a few days now.

I feel like its the end of summer and I am about to start a new school. I'm moving to a new town, and going to a school with 450 other students. I wonder, who will be my new friends? Who will be in my class / study group? What will the teachers be like? Will I like them? Will they like me? More importantly, will I survive?

So to everyone who has helped me get here; all the friends and family who listened to me for the past two years, talk endlessly about my dream to go to Bikram Teacher Training and always believed I could make it happen (often with more certainty than me), I say, thank you.

To all the yoga teachers with whom I have had the joy of crossing paths, I say thank you. Thank you for your inspiration and motivation, and for sharing your love of yoga. For taking the time in class to notice my postures and offer words of correction and encouragement, which has helped me improve in so many ways.

A special word to Sean and Jodie, and the fellow yogis / yoginis of what has become my home studio in Burleigh. Thank you for welcoming me so warmly into your studio when I first moved here from NZ two years ago. My life wouldn't be complete without Bikram Yoga and so it has been wonderful to continue my practice here on the Goldie.

To you all, a most heartfelt, Namaste.
