Well, it’s finally here!
We have opened our doors and are ready for business. I wanted to take some time to reflect this month on this experience and create some intentions for the space and our community.
Yoga has helped me in many areas of my life. I actually can't imagine what my life would be like without it. I first started doing yoga in high school and started practicing regularly in college. I loved it, but mostly for the physical aspects. Then, I came into one of the darkest times of my life. I lost sight of who I was, lost some close friends, and became dependent on someone else for my happiness. I vividly remember driving home one morning crying, called my mom, and we booked a yoga retreat. This retreat was what my body, my heart, and my soul needed. I started to learn the healing powers of yoga, and slowly started to feel like myself again and step out of the dark and into happier times.
Fast forward a few years, I knew I was ready to learn more about yoga and decided to enroll in a 200 hour yoga teacher training. This training completely changed my life. It taught me how to live in a yogic way. It taught me the power of yoga on a deeper level. I started living out my yoga. This is all a practice. Some days we are on and feel great and sometimes we can hardly put one foot in front of the other.
That brings us to Muddy Waters Yoga Studio.This is a dream, and I’m grateful to everyone along the way that has helped me get to this point. Here is a look back on where we have come and where we are going.
I remember the moment Shawn, my husband, talked to me about the possibility of opening a yoga studio in the building. At first I said, “No, I can’t do that.” And that was that. Then, I started to sit with it, "Well, what if I could do it?" There were still so many logical things keeping me from saying yes, but eventually I made the decision my heart wanted and said yes and never looked back.
We are looking forward to creating community and space for Winona and surrounding areas. Our schedule starts TODAY! You can download yours here! We ask that you register for class to ensure your space. This is also a great way to plan the classes you would like to take during the week.
All the gratitude and the biggest love,
