mexico yoga teacher training - greetings from tulum!

Hola Amigas!

I arrived safe and sound in Tulum on Thursday. I had two days at Maya Tulum to rest, relax, get massage, eat de-lish food, dp prep work, and check in with the kind folks here at Cabanas La Luna about specifics for our training.

Crazy things has happened with this trip to's been almost the whole time! On Saturday I was actally a tad concerned that some yogins flights might not make it in.

Try as you may though, you cannot change Mama Natures mind. She's clearly been doing her thing and we've been doing our thing. All is working out. All is well. At Maya Tulum I stayed in my most fave cabana and now at Cabanas La Luna I'm in a cabana that sorts makes me sigh each time I walk in.


With all 12 yogis present yesterday we started out first day of training. I think it's safe to say we all felt a bit of the "first day of school" jitters. We're all getting to know one another during this exciting beginning stage of yoga teacher training.

So special. Really. I'll say it over and over, so be prepared.

Today was our first full day, beginning at 6:30 a.m. and ending at 6:30 p.m. And guess what? They already taught a sun salutation Yep. Rock on yogis. We'll continue to learn and build and add on but they have taken their first step, taking their spot, claiming their voice in being a yoga teacher.

I'm hoping, imagining, assured that things are running smoothly at home with my baby, Barefoot Works of course.

I gotta say though that I rarely think about what's happening (unless I get an email from a student or teacher) on the homefront yoga studio. I miss my home yoga peeps but once this training begins it gets All of me. My days begin at 5:30 and end....well right about now.

I've already lost track of the day.

Sunday, when the beach yoga teacher training fog clears. Yes, Sunday. We had two classes. Taught by two gifted teachers. Of course things are good.

I've gottne numerous email from friends and students seding amazingness this way.

Thank you so much. I appreciate it. And love you for it.

The sea is beginning to lull me to sleep. Buenos noches amigas.

The sweetest of dreams to all of you.
