Are you a yogi….or are you a YOGI?

Some people have jobs…others have careers….and a few have lifestyles. Either you go to work and watch the clock, enjoy your job…but leave it at the office, or totally immerse yourself into your work. This is the same with teaching yoga. A lot of teachers completely immerse themselves into the yoga lifestyle. Feeling how the body moves with each breath. Being inspired by the different poses, becoming vegan, and much, much more. Now I personally know teachers that eat, breathe, and live yoga…which is totally fine. But, this is not my style of teaching. Personally, I focus on relaxing my clients, finding happiness, and telling my clients just to overall check in with themselves. I don’t live the yoga life style. I am a good, decent person…that tries to do the right thing. I love my job and all the awesome people I meet during it. But, I am not a total yoga expert by any means. I’m Leah, and I’m a yoga instructor. But, yoga isn’t my entire life and I’m ok with that. I love my family, friends, my amazing boyfriend. I enjoy watching documentaries and going for random adventures with my best friend Jessie. I like to sleep…a lot and I enjoy a caffeinated beverage most of the time. See, I have other people, activities, and things I like to do….other than yoga. And I don’t want to be frowned upon for that. I have a life outside of yoga and I like to keep it that way. I like the simplicity of being Leah, just Leah. Not the yoga instructor Leah…But, being someone’s family member, someone’s friend, someone’s girlfriend….being important to people in different ways. Because to me I’m not that important, I’m just Leah. The Leah that tries to hard…the Leah that cares to much…or the Leah that wants to help people all the time. So, I end this entry with a question….do you know the true you, the essence that makes you important people? Until next week….Stay beautiful, stay confident, and
stay you.

See you on your mat!
