Kinndli and I were at TED-x Oakville yesterday and I turned to her and said, “Let’s start a blog to capture our journey”. The response was “hmmm….okay….really? Who reads that stuff anyways”. Well today someone, and whomever you are I thank you, suggested that we start a blog. So here we are, our first ever PYC blog.
I’ve wanted to start this to document our path, as it has been quite a year! If you would have told me a year ago that if you soared out of your comfort zone you would find freedom I would have laughed endlessly. Yet, here we are knee deep in freedom.
I’ll never forget the afternoon in late August ’09 when Kinndli and I started planning opening up a yoga studio. I met her at Starbucks in Clarkson village, me in my business suit and pearls and her in her halter top suntanning. I knew right then that I wanted to spend my afternoons working on my tan as my son plays in the park. That is exactly how this summer went, working in the afternoons on our lap top, while sun tanning and watching the kids.
The intention of this blog is simple, to share the inner workings of PYC. I have learned that the best way to grow is to share your experiences with everyone. People ask me all the time what I do for work and I always answer I play at the yoga studio. Kinndli and I work all the time, but it never feels like work.
I have no idea if anyone will read this, but if you do I hope you enjoy the journey through the eyes of both Kinndli and I. Right now we are in the midst of opening up our second studio (third studio under PYC) and we are about to go back into KD mode. Just our inside joke (KD=Kraft Dinner – which we really don’t eat) to say that, here we go maxing up our line of credit and credit cards again! Here’s the very first picture of our second space. With the last studio we were painting, cutting trim and dragging sofa’s up the three flights of stairs. This time the studio is on the ground level and we will have contractors do what they do best. Although, I am sure we’ll catch Kinndli trying to assemble some type of Ikea something in her last month of pregnancy.
Here’s to new beginnings, new adventures and a brand new KICK ASS BLOG!!!
Until next time…P
