Today has been a busy day of accomplishments. It started at 5:30am – like any other typical Wednesday – so I could head out and get to Greenfield in time to teach my 7am yoga class. Yes, it’s a haul…especially at that hour…but the people that show up to class are so awesome. Each Tuesday night I tell myself I need to give it up but each Wednesday after I finish class, I’m so glad I taught it.
And that’s about where my typical Wednesday activities stop.
When I got home I was greeted with a call from the General Contractor we’re in negotiations with for the north side expansion project. They wanted to clarify a few things and send over the contract for signature. I printed it….signed it…and sent it off. Shit just got really real. We are now contracted to officially start the buildout!! All the permits are approved…so there’s nothing standing in our way…this.is.happening! Breathe….
From that excitement, I popped up the street to a local coffee shop to meet up with my nesha partners. It’s the first time the three of us have been together in months…maybe since Staraya headed off to start her advanced program in October. It was so good to be together…catching up…and dreaming about the future. We were able to fill Star in on all our crazy ideas…including our dreams of a new space and community outreach…and she loved them. Further confirmation that our partnership is a good one. With all three of us working to manifest these new intentions, it shouldn’t be long….
After that I headed up north to meet with a woman that teaches the Alexander Technique. The simplest way to explain it is, every piece of equipment you own comes with a manual…except your body. She helps you to get more in tune with how it is built to work most efficiently. This means learning to sit, stand, walk, lift, do yoga…pretty much anything and everything…properly for your body. We were so excited listening to her pitch and I can’t wait to see how we can involve her going forward. Heck, I can’t wait to take a class with her myself!!
Next up, I headed to buy sheets/blanket for my Reiki table. Laura and I are going to staff a nesha booth at 317 Bride’s Bridal Expo this weekend. We’re promoting our Yin privates and workshops, Reiki, and Cards of Destiny readings to brides and offering them free Reiki sessions on the spot. I can’t wait! I was so excited, in fact, I popped over to the Athenaeum (where the event will be held) to take a look at our space. Super excited!
In between errands, I managed to scan Facebook to see that the Kids Yoga event Erin and I wanted to do next weekend is officially on the schedule! Woo hoo…finally. I’m not sure who is going to be more giddy in class…me or the kids! And this is just the beginning. We’re hoping to make the “playshop” a monthly occurrence at the Invoke Wellness Center and plan to take at least the first playshop to Coburn Place for those kiddos too.
Once I got back home, I settled in to catch up on some emails and was greeted with information on a yoga training specifically focused on learning how to work with cancer patients. Had I gotten this information a year ago, I might have overlooked it or thought it wouldn’t be a good fit for me. But now…after my mom and the Redheaded Gypsy…I’m considering doing the training. I know it would be yet another thing to throw on my plate but it’s a way to make sense of what happened to them. A way to help them and others. A way to spread some joy and bring some ease to an otherwise devastating period in someone’s life. I haven’t decided what I’m going to do yet. For now, I’m just going to sit with it.
The last bit of news today was that we might have our current nesha office space rented. This would be huge and would free us to fully manifest nesha 2.0…in a new space…with a new focus…filled with new energy.
So much freaking goodness today!!
Oh, and did I mention there was a pop up boutique parked right in front of my house?!? Seriously…bought some cute shit. Keep it coming Universe…and thank you. 🙂
