With the blink of an eye it’s mid-June and summer is in full force. Our annual Memorial Day camping trip has come and gone, another amazing year at Camp Serenbe is in the books, and we are gearing up for some time in the Sawtooths. It is slowly becoming more natural for me to say, “I have a Yoga and Mindfulness coaching business…” and my elevator pitch for Growing Grounded is getting smoother. I feel excited just thinking about the new space for creativity which time is beginning to allow for, and better yet the impact that this work is having on my clients.
When people ask what the fall will look like for me, I answer with a nervous excitement that I don’t really know- I am watching things evolve and unfold and welcoming new opportunities This is a feeling I haven’t experienced, well, ever! But those of you who know me best know that there is, of course, already some structure in place.
I began teaching a Mindfulness and Meditation class at Peachtree Art Therapy this past Spring, and I immediately felt at home working with the women in this practice. We share the same holistic approach to emotional wellness, and with it’s own little Yoga and Meditation room within the office, it was obvious that this is a perfect place for me to hang my hat. We have continued our partnership and this fall I will be teaching three classes there on Tuesdays. I will be offering a literacy based Mindfulness class called “Books and Bends” to the littles, a Poetry based Mindfulness class to Elementary aged kids, and another Mindfulness and Meditation class for Middle Schoolers called “Balanced Bodies.”
When I said goodbye to my Trinity friends in May I promised that I would still be coming around and this is, in fact, the case. On Wednesdays I will be teaching a similar Books and Bends class after school, as well as an after school Yoga class. I am so excited to continue my relationship with Trinity, which was home to me for five years.
Other than that I will be working with an independent school to develop a 3k-12 Mindfulness curriculum to be implemented throughout the school day, leading Mindfulness seminars to local companies who are making big strides in committing to employee wellness, and teaching both Yoga and Mindfulness in small group and individual settings. And in my spare time, I am will be working to earn my health coaching certificate through Emory.
