Hello Healthy People!!!
No not Bach the composer, I just wanted you to hear my voice/emotion. Seriously though I am finally back to the blogging world.
I have to say thank you to Lightpaw for emailing me some reassuring words, I haven’t been that into blogging since post college life, but am ready to begin again…
I now am officially moved in to Florida…and working three jobs!!!! I guess I tend to be a go getter after all.
My main job is prettttty freaking awesome. I teach yoga to the public and to elite amateur and professional athletes. We also used weighted yoga balls between 4 and 5 pounds to increase the intensity to our practice. Nothing makes me more proud of yoga when a football player who can squat in the 500’s and bench a small elephant comes up the yoga studio and recognizes how difficult and challenging yoga really is.
Sometimes they even look like this:
But in all honestly the coolest thing about it all is seeing the improvements in participants abilities. The East County Observer, a publication in the area, came to interview me about our program…if you would like to check that out click here. It’s great to see the athletes response to their bodies after a class. They are improving each session and it is truly a game of mind over matter.
I also teach group fitness classes at two different gyms, one is associated with Sarasota Memorial Hospital, which I have found is just a wonderful place to be a part of. After a spin class one day a woman came up to me and said I should consider selling shirts that say “I survived Jess’s SPIN”
…made my day.
So I want to catch you all up on my fitness oriented new world post grad, I also had a few ideas for posts a while back I will write about too. Videos are soon to come especially because I got a puppy 🙂 Say hello to Mr. Finley Jack
But now I must leave to teach power yoga! Woo, namaste my friends.
Happy eating and exercising!!!
