Congratulations on the move! Loved the podcast - it is so good to reflect back on such a huge event. The studio looks amazing (especially love the wood on the changing room) and the cushions.... enjoy your opening party.

I stopped by the new studio this weekend and it looks fantastic -- congrats!!

I'd love to sew my own meditation cushion. Can your mom share her pattern??

CMB said...

My hubby and I listen to your podcast when we're commuting to grad school. You and Beau make such a great podcasting team! We'd love for you to bring him on more often for a male perspective on living a yoga lifestyle. :-) Congrats on the big move!

Super yay that you are back but it was worth the wait! I loved listening to you and HTB chatting about your life-altering transition. What a learning experience!
For ideas for future podcasts - can you discuss the beginnings of starting a teaching practice? How to make contacts, what types of classes to offer, etc.
Thank you!!!
