Hi, hi! I hope y’all are having a great week. My week has felt a little jumbled because I’ve subbed some extra classes and had Finn on a night that I usually don’t but all is good!
I have some exciting news…
SUMMER CAMP IS IN SESSION
Doggie summer camp is in session! Bear arrived today to stay for a long weekend and I couldn’t be more thrilled to have this sweet boy with us again. He’s the seven-year-old golden retriever of a friend of mine and he’s been doing summer (and some holiday) visits with us since gosh…maybe 2015-16? Let’s take a walk down memory lane!

Finn, Zoey and Bear in 2019. This was about six months after I lost Sullie and having Bear in the house was what made me feel ready to think about getting another dog. Benji joined the fam about three months later!
Dogs are just the best. 🙂
You know who else is the best? Finn. Three has been such a joyful and fun age for us. Here are some of my favorite moments with him lately.
Finn is making so much progress with his swimming! He swam from the steps to a ladder on the side of the big pool on his own when we were at the pool a few days ago!

Did you even go to Home Depot if you didn’t ride the mowers?

I’m participating in a webinar on Thursday in partnership with the YMCA of Metro Atlanta. I’m speaking about simple strategies to nurture your body, mind and spirit. Registration is free and you don’t have to be a Y member to join in. Here is the link!
I spent a few hours yesterday afternoon shooting images and videos for yoga assist trainings. It’s been a goal of mine to create a more formal training with a manual that includes photos of each assist as well as a video library. I’ll use these materials in continuing education trainings that I offer to teachers as well as in my yoga teacher trainings. My model was one of the graduates of my yoga teacher training at Vibes last summer. I have another 200-hour YTT coming up at Vibes in January 2022 so stay tuned for dates and details.
In the meantime, I am leading a 10-hour assist refresh training for yoga teachers this weekend at Vibes. All the details and registration information is on the website!
I also have another 200-hour yoga teacher training kicking off at VIDYA in Tennessee in August! You can find details on that here.
That wraps up my update. I’ve got to make my way through some emails and work before heading back to the studio to teach yoga this evening.
Have you ever competed any fitness certifications? Do you have any on your radar/wish list?
Do you have a dog? How many? What kind?
How is your week going?
