My dearest yogis,
Hello my HYP tribe. I wanted to let you all know that after a long time of considering, I have decided to take a personal leave from HYP. This may come as a surprise to some of you and to others, not so much. I have gone back and forth about this decision in fear of losing what we have all built together. I want you to know my goal and heart is still 100% to open my own space someday with the vision of reaching a population that does not have accessible yoga. My vision still remains the same. However, there have been many set backs this year including several promises of finances and funding coming through, partnerships not panning out, lease spaces not working out, and more that I do not wish to go into at this point in time. I have had many physical set-backs in my own life as well as my families lives that have hindered me from giving 100%.
I must take some time to focus on me and my family. My own practice, my health and wellness and the long-term goals of this business.
I am so thankful for your involvement and excitement for this project. And we are still pursuing buildings and partnerships with other communities to see if it makes sense to work together in the future.
So what does that mean? The hard part will be letting my Monday and Saturday classes go as I know our community truly enjoys these classes. I trust that when the time is right to continue our community classes, you will join me in re-launching and I will be so excited to see you all.
This next 3-6 months I will be taking a leave of absence. I will be focusing on my own practice as well as my nutrition and mental health. I will be taking some time away from social media mainly on HYP but on my personal pages as well to reconnect to my foundation and family.
Please know my heart breaks as I write this and I hope you can all understand where I am coming from. I still 100% desire to have a space of my own. I hope you can all see this not as weakness or failure but strength for admitting and recognizing when I need to take care of myself. I am not giving up. It took a very long time for me to admit to myself that this is what I need to do. I kept wanting to push through and give it my all but I just wasn’t able to.
Once again thank you so much for everything. I wish there were words to express my gratitude and how amazing this journey has been. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me personally as I am still on your team and hope to stay as connected as possible. As always, TRUST THE PROCESS, and Happy New Year 2019.
Thank you all so much once again. Much love and grace to you,
