This is it folks.
The last Yoga Lunchbox article for a few months. KL is leaving the building 🙂
I wish I could say I had something profound and meaningful to share, but I don’t know that I do.
And that’s kinda why I’m taking a break from publishing articles on the website.
Over the last three years I’ve written extensively about my life on the yoga path. I started this website the day after completing my first Prana Flow module with Twee Merrigan. I was all fired up about yoga again, and could feel in my bones that it was something super important to me.
At the time, I was in a challenging relationship, and writing speeches for Ministers of Parliamant, which was paying the mortgage on the house my partner and I were renovating.
I knew what kind of life I wanted to be living. I had all the right words for it. But I wasn’t quite there. Writing this website became my way of making sense of where I was in life and where I wanted to be. The process of writing, and publishing, helped me find clarity and gave me the momentum to create a new life for myself.
Now that I’m there, I don’t have much to say anymore.
Which of course begs the question – where on earth is the content going to come from for The Yoga Lunchbox?
That’s one of the things I’ll be contemplating in the next few months. I do have a few ideas. As well as completing a creative writing course ar Victoria University, I’m also finishing off the last few requirements for my 200 hour Prana Flow Certification.
By the time I come back, I’ll be the first certified Prana Flow teacher in New Zealand.
And after barely teaching for nearly two years due to pregnancy, childbirth and single motherhood… I think I’m going to be all fired up to teach again, in a format that works for my lifestyle.
Which brings us back around to content for The Yoga Lunchbox.
Maybe it’s time to have some short videos on practicing. Or maybe some short video interviews with yoga teachers.
Like anything, there’s a few factors to weigh up – like the time involved in creating such content, and the demand for such content. Whatever I do, it has to be balanced with paid work so I can support myself and my son.
So while I take some time out to finish my Prana Flow certification and do this creative writing course, I’d like to ask you The Yoga Lunchbox readers, to think about what you’d like to see on the website when it comes back.
- What kind of content do you want to read? Watch? Listen to?
- How do you see this content being created?
- Would you be prepared to create content?
- What would get you really excited?
- What is no other yoga website giving you that you just wish it would?
Leave your responses in the comments, and I’ll see you all in November.
