Times are a‘changing…again
A few years ago, I wrote an entry about our relocation from Minnesota to the Chicago area. I mentioned that it was abyasa (practice) and vairagya (detachment) that enabled me to get through two- plus years of no income for my husband because God, in His infinite wisdom, provided for and managed to help us start a new business.
Looking back on it now, almost 3 years later, it was a more difficult move than those earlier in our marriage because this time we were moving as empty nester neophytes. Then the added stress of a new business had us asking God a lot of questions. Oh, we had our fair share of samsaya (lingering doubt) but we determined not to let alabdhabhumikatva (lack of perseverance) keep us from achieving our goal. We weathered the storm of the economy and can now see the light at the end of the proverbial tunnel. Now the light is telling us to a make a dramatic turn.
Home is calling
It’s now been 10 years since we left our home in Austin, Texas for the move to Minnesota. That is a long time! A new opportunity has presented itself and it means we get to move back home. The business venture in the Chicago area is thriving and we will leave it in the capable hands of our partner. It is time my husband returns to the corporate sector where he spent the majority of his career and where he feels more comfortable.
I have enjoyed building my student base in the NW’burbs, though it did take me a while. I apologize to those I have only recently connected with and do truly hope you will continue to pursue the method that is Iyengar yoga because it is so obvious to me our paths were meant to cross. I also hope if you ever find yourself in Austin that you will look me up and I can show you around the fine South-by-Southwest little town that has almost doubled in population since we left in 2003.
Classes through July 2013
I plan on holding classes at my home studio through July 24 with the last class at The Yoga Place in Glen Ellyn scheduled for Friday, July 26th. I hope you will all keep coming to class and continue learning how to build your home practice. My next posting will include a list of recommended Certified Iyengar teachers in the area. Thank you one and all. I have thoroughly loved knowing each and every one of you and sincerely hope our paths will cross again.
