It has been a busy week for me with lots of teaching, getting back to running and watching the Olympics. I love watching swimming, I swam in high school and like the world I am amazed by the talent of Michael Phelps and of course Kaite Ledecky (I mean wow). They are both fierce in the water, focused on their goals and realize their own potential. I do know there are many other atheletes and people that have the same fierceness and focus on their own potential. I find these people motivating and inspiring particularly those that are also humble, kind and respectful.
Part of my week was spending two afternoons leading a great group in Tranquil Space's Level 1 Teacher Training at the Arlington studio. They were fun, curious and open to learning which is always so motivating and moving to me. We all hit times in our lives or weeks or days where motivation to do anything is sadly lacking. Sometimes we need to shake things up like experiencing something that scares you (maybe a workshop) or sometimes we just need to really look at those around us. Here are some things that kept me motivated this week:
My motivation in this moment is to enjoy this very summer weekend with my family, probably with a run, yoga, some pool time and anything else to keep us cool.
I am a DC based yoga teacher, wife, mother of two kids and three animals who is using yoga both on and off the mat to find balance.
