The Path Meant to be Traveled

Hello, friends!  It’s been quite some time since I’ve updated this blog.  I wasn’t really sure where I wanted to go with it for a while.  I wasn’t really sure where I wanted to go with myself for a while to be honest.  As you may or may not remember, last fall I plunged into the amazing journey of yoga teacher training.  Along the path I have had the opportunity to experience the teachings of master yogis, such as Tias Little and Gabriel Halpern.  I have created new friendships and looked so deep into myself that I have been brought to tears on several occasions.  It is as if everything I thought to be true about myself was not.  It has been an incredible journey for sure and I’m not certain I can describe it all in words.  I hope that you will see a reflection of my journey in my work and in my writings though.

On the business front, things took a major turn mid year in 2012.  I am receiving orders on a regular basis now and actually running a business.  My association with The Artisan Group has opened up so many opportunities for me and given me a confidence that I did not have before.  Actress/comedian, Amy Poehler, has been photographed wearing my jewelry.  My jewelry will also be making its television debut on CW’s The Vampire and Diaries and HBO’s hit series True Blood this year.  It’s as if someone whispered in my ear, “Its your time, Heidi.”  My recent work definitely reflects my love of yoga.  I am incorporating some simple yoga symbols with eco friendly materials and natural gemstones.

I have recently started to teach  a couple of yoga classes a week.  It amazes me how different what I thought teaching yoga would be when I registered for teacher training compared to what it really is like.  Again, I am at a loss for word to describe the love and gratitude that pours out of me when I am teaching.  One thing I am certain of is that I am on the path I was meant to travel.
