I Love You #PDX

What’s that song? … “Summer days drifting away…” AH! I think it’s from Grease. But, not the point. It’s stuck in my head and these summer days are going by way too fast!

I recently passed my one year anniversary of living in Oregon. And I can honestly say that I am so happy that I made the move. Yeah, I am still figuring stuff out. Yeah, I miss my family. But I cannot express in words how much I love this state. From the mountains to the coast. From the endless trails to the ever flowing waterfalls. All the coffee shops, all the vegan food. And most importantly all the amazing people.

I encourage anyone and everyone to follow your heart. If there is anything in your life that you have been craving to do. It could be a move or a new hobby you wish to explore, do it. Don’t let the fear of failure or judgment of others deter you. You can make it happen. Believe that.

On to the updates…I know it’s been a while. One big thing… I have been transitioning in and out of a couple different career opportunities. Right now, I am very happy where I am. I am working as a swim instructor and sometimes lesson coordinator at a great athletic club in Portland. I absolutely love what I am doing, the people I work with, and the members I serve.

I am also teaching yoga at Flex & Flow and again love the community that is growing there. That space feels like home. My teaching schedule can be found here. I keep that link updated, but you can also check out our home page. Subbing lots over the next two weeks so come and check the place out if you haven’t already!

You can also find me at Two Suns Massage & Therapy. A little outside of Portland, but classes are beginner friendly, and focus on the needs for your body.

And I am guiding youth and adult hockey players through yoga asana classes. I have partnered with Doug Lynch Hockey and it has been a blast! (More details on this to come!)

And then there has been my normal exploring of the trails, eating all the good food, and oh yeah, I moved! So I have been having fun exploring northeast (#allthefood #allthecoffee). I’m usually posting all that through my Instagram!
