Hooray! Hooray! I get to start physical therapy today!
Truth be told, I’m excited and apprehensive at the same time. Excited to get to start actively getting better but nervous because I know that it’s not going to be fun. And it’s going to hurt! Ouch. But it’s a good thing, right?
It has been a hard week or two. I wasn’t sure about publishing Monday’s post about finding your OK but it’s always those posts that seem to be the ones you know you should publish. But I’m slowly finding what OK means to me now.
And it seems like Spring has FINALLY decided to show its face around New York.
Remember how last year I went to the Yoga Journal Conference? Well, Yoga Journal Live! is coming back to New York City April 23-27, 2015. It’s pretty amazing when hundreds of yogi descend on a midtown Manhattan hotel and transform it into an unlikely yoga studio.
The theme this year is Awaken Your Practice and if there’s anything I need, it’s to awaken my practice. My yoga practice looks very different than it has in years because of my shoulder. But, I do appreciate the opportunity to explore and study the other limbs of yoga. Because it’s not always about the physical practice and I’m excited to learn more.
This year’s Yoga Journal Conference brings together some of my favorite teachers including Tiffany Cruikshank, Kathryn Budig, Jason Crandell and so many more teachers. In addition to the workshops and classes, there are special events including hiking yoga through Central Park; an evening of meditation, yoga, and tribal house with Shiva Rea and NYC DJ Tasha Blank; and an exploration of how mindfulness is shaping modern society with Sharon Salzberg (meditation teacher and New York Times bestselling author, Jeff Walker (philanthropist and co-author of The Generosity Network), George Mumford (sports psychologist and mindfulness teacher for the New York Knicks), and Gopi Kallayil (chief evangelist for brand marketing at Google).

So this whole sling thing is cramping my photo taking style. I don’t have many photos to share. Boo. But I do have some great articles and stories for you.
