February 21 Day Challenge Day 1

I am getting a slow start to my 21 day challenge. It’s already day 3 of Feb. and I have just completed Day one of my challenge. I’m pretty sure that it’s going to come down to the wire and I will have no extra days left by mid-month and have to go everyday till the end of Feb. I haven’t exactly been super disciplined lately and this is going to take sheer determination to be mindful of the words that I have put out into the universe and follow through once I have set an intention to complete the challenge. I decided to start my challenge off with my husband’s class at noon in San Jose. I am trying to take all of the YB teachers this month and switch it up. There are 21 teachers at YB so this will have to be a feat in planning and getting myself out of my routine and trying new timeslots.
Days like today I am reminded how lucky I am to share my life with an amazing yoga teacher like my husband. It’s hard at times to view him in the same light as everyone else because I tend to get caught up in William the person and forget that we have been on this yoga journey together for a decade now and I am lucky to have someone that I share my life with to walk side by side. He makes me a better teacher, I have someone to nerd out with yoga. I get to talk about the sequences I love and the unique transitions, when I learn a new move or when he learns something we share with each other the little victories we take along the path. I feel lucky today. This isn’t something common among the other people I know. The person that was there on my first day sharing in my personal practice is there 10 years later sharing in my path as an instructor.
I’m happy to be back on my mat today. It’s a good day. I hope you all are enjoying your time in the challenge and reconnecting with your practice at another level. It’s a magical journey if you find the time and place for it in your life.

All my love,
Aaron
