It’s over. I’ve waited for it to be over. I’ve hoped that it would be over. I’ve been afraid of the day that it would be over. And now, it is.

Today, I graduated from Yoga Teacher Training. I’m officially certified to turn my friends, neighbors, and strangers into strange shapes. I know the sanskrit words for 20+ postures, and I know the benefits of back strengthening and compression. I somewhat know about chakras and yamas and niyamas. I’m especially glad to have my weekends back – the leisure of sleeping in, hanging out on the couch in the afternoons with a book or a good movie. But I’m going to miss so many things. The comraderie of 13 other people going through the same things I am. I’m going to miss learning so much in such a short period of time. And I’m going to miss the laughter that we’ve shared so many times along the way.
