The blog has a new name and a fresh purpose!
Since my last post, plenty of new and exciting things have happened. I've become a certified yoga instructor, have been teaching classes since March and, among other things, I suck way less at running!
As I work to make yoga a bigger part of my professional life, I want to expand the purpose of this blog to include more than just fanciful stories of mountain excursions. Obviously outdoor adventures will always be a big part of my life and wont be absent from the blog, but you'll begin to see some more variety in the content.
"Get off Your Mat" is the embodiment of how I strive to live my yoga.
There's the physical asana practice that most of us attach to that little rectangle of rubber in a tidy studio space. Then there's the rest of yoga that winds itself through the other 23 hours of our day.
My challenge to myself and to any growing yogi to "Get off Your Mat" is a challenge to take your yoga with you. Romp in the dirt, connect with Mother Nature, practice outside, breathe the fresh air, meditate by the ocean, think outside of that colorful rubber box. Take the love, the compassion, the peace with you to work, to school, on dates. Live your yoga, take it with you...
Get off Your Mat.
