Some major shifts are happening in my life right now after an intense month of immersing fully and wholeheartedly in the teachings (Jivamukti Yoga) being with such incredible teachers who have this transformative force which has truly effected me and changed me. Teachers who reflect to you who you truly are and shine a light on the path so you know where to go. I bow down to all these teachers and I feel so blessed with all this month has given me. Such shifts and transformation.
I made some big decisions. One being to fully focus on YOGA. That is my future. It is what makes me happy and feeling fulfilled. Its where my passion lies and talent. The talent to be able to be the instrument & to transmit the teachings in a loving, fun, enthusiastic and dynamic way. I walk the talk, I live by example and I see the effect this has on those who encounter me, my classes, my workshops and mu teachings. So I choose this path. Now more then ever. Encouraged by the founders. (Sharon Gannon and David Life who I hold so preciously close to my heart, being with them truly was magical) Inspired by amazing teachers (Moritz and Rima you both touched me so deeply) who share this path and are way, way ahead of me but I step me feet in their footprints they have left behind and I learn from every step they have taken before me and I know they are waiting for me, with arms wide open, for when I am ready to arrive where they are on this path. So many more steps, such a bright bright future ahead of me.
I am going to fully focus on yoga as a student and a teacher. I am going to eliminate all other side projects, distractions, which stop me from being focused and in the flow of yoga. Its a huge shift to put cooking and other activities aside for now and just live yoga but that is where I see my future and I am so excited, determined, motivated and READY for all that is to come on this path. All the learning. The teaching. Perfecting my disciple-ship and asana practice so I can be a better teacher and servant to all who want to receive me and my teachings. Look out world, here I come. First stop YOGA SWEAT Birmingham with the love Keri Perkins. Many more to come. Check my tour schedule HERE.
