Commit-o-phobe

Yes, that’s the best way to describe me…or it has been for years.  I like to live in the now and commitment guarantees an outcome.   I don’t believe in guarantees.

I’m simple.  I like coffee in the morning.  Quiet time to myself.  New material to study.  Oh and people who can entertain my overflowing and ever-changing train of thought.

I’ve found a beautiful balance within my work.  My business’s that grow themselves and my lineup of new tasks and clients.  

Right now – literally today – I will be emersing myself in a change of seasons.  Where my world changes from a meditative aquatic therapy class to exciting out-door hooping tricks and events.

This will be a sweet ending to my second year at the Temple Gardens Hotel and Spa.  A beautiful two years with a company who sought me out and set me loose to develop my own program.  This is my newest baby turning two!  The evolution has been a calming yet inspiring experience that I’m grateful for beyond words.  

Classes begin again September 1.  This is a commitment that excites me ~ I look forward to a third term with the spa for 2017/2018.  I hope to spend more time with those familiar faces and meet more beautiful travelling souls.  

Many thanks to everyone who took the time to grace the waters during this 2016/2017 season.  Enjoy your summer!

Perpetual Expansion

This accurately describes my intention in this life.  To learn.  To expand my knowledge and push my boundaries.   Through various classes I’ve realized the methods that don’t work for me, along with many that do.  It’s part of the process, my process to higher education.  

As an instructor, my task is to continually learn and challange myself.  To be constantly expanfing and finding tge best ways to relate the informatin to you.  I hope as I do this, you’re inspiration will be sparked in a way that’ll drive your desire for more knowledge and more practise.   

Some classes are best led with clear detailed step-by-step instructions.  Others by movement and repeated physical/visual examples.  It’s hard to know how a group of people learn best in any setting.

If my goal is to teach the basics of hooping.  Allowing you to pick up a hoop and hoop-dance to any song there needs to be at least 4 classes of straight instruction and skill development along with a few classes of flow example.  

If my goal is to lead a class through an aquatic therapy meditative session, I need to have a clear, repetitive script ready with small changes along the way.

Each group is different.  Birthday parties, outdoor events, mother daughter team yoga.  

The key is staying present and really feeling into what will create the best ongoing experience for this group.  As soon as I pose that question, I begin to learn.

I love what I do and can’t wait to see you in class.
