Life. Yoga. Joy.
Inspiring a life with smiles...™
For months I have been running around excited that my sister-in-heart and her hubby were flying out to sunny SoCal for a visit. And then suddenly, they were here! After a few days of walking to the beach, hitting up a baseball game in San Diego (Red Sox lost but I did get to see Big Papi on the field), and convincing my carnivore bro-in-heart to eat some vegan goodies at Gratitude Cafe, we were off to our big adventure...YOSEMITE!
Trying to write this post was an enormous task. Should I share my reflections? Give you the ins and outs of each trail? A detailed account of every pinnacle moment? After looking through the pictures I had taken I realized that, in the words of one of my former students, "I can't even". Meaning I can't even begin to describe the majesty and magic of the park, so I won't even try in this post. Instead my peeps, you are getting the bare bones of my thoughts, and I'm going to let the pictures be the focus. (I did spend some time at the end of the post for tips and suggestions based on our experience. So if you are planning a trip to Yosemite, don't forget to read to the end.) Perhaps later I can process and reflect, but for now, enjoy the views...
In 6 weeks I will be heading off to the Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health to study for my 200 hour yoga teacher certificate. Taking a month-long sabbatical from work, friends, family, and my normal life in general is a HUGE undertaking. Just ensuring that I have enough yoga clothes alone to be able to not have to wash laundry for at least a week is costly enough! (LOL) Seriously though, this trip is the first leg on a new path I am on in my life. So the question becomes, why yoga, why now?
