Searching for a little inspiration, when a friend of mine here in Toronto asked if I wanted to try out a yoga class called Yoga for Creative Health, I thought ‘why not?’ With some encouragement from my best friend and yoga guru – “I love that you are always trying new and cool stuff!” – I headed to the creative yoga class and found myself making a four week commitment to yoga practice and creative activity. The instructor asked us to commit to a creative goal of any sort that we could work on throughout the month and share our progress, challenges and successes with the group. Through yoga practice, to which I am a hopeful beginner, we are opening our bodies and minds to creative thought and action in whatever way we are inspired.
For the past few years, my “summer to-do list” has always included “Create a blog! Write more! Get creative!” And yet summer would come and go, a few blog ideas swirling around my head but never once published. I would come up with a catchy title or two (credit on “Everything All The Time” goes to one of my favourite bands, can you guess who?) but the blog never became a reality.
