Yesterday, was one of those days where as the night was closing in I felt an overwhelming sense of gratitude. Gratitude for the weekend that I had, the weeks that have passed and growing years of happiness. It has taken me a while to get where I am and I know that I am just going to keep moving forward. I just sat on our couch and smiled as I looked out the window.
About two weeks ago a friend of mine invited me to a special yoga event at the Four Seasons Atlanta, hosted in their penthouse over looking the Atlanta skyline. I jumped at the chance, I knew this was something I needed to do. Many of you might remember me writing about how much I love Yoga and what it's done for me, you can review it here ---> Finding the power of yoga. I have always wanted to go to a yoga event and couldn't wait to go.
Yesterday, jumping out of bed and running around my apartment with excitement waiting for my friend to get to our apartment. i probably changed my outfit three times. I mean, yoga at the Four Seasons, i should probably look somewhat dressy right? Well, in the end I decided that it was a better idea to be comfy for yoga, and I had to throw in my sense of humor by wearing my Pug life tank. As my friend and I pulled up to the hotel we were greeted with a super awesome bell boy with a Fedora, and as he took the car, we couldn't help but to squeal in excitement, we made it.
The service didn't stop there, as we walked in to the hotel lobby we were met by the event hostess who lead us to the next stop and escorted us personally to the special elevator. We were on our way up, jumping around and reciting the pretty woman elevator scene the whole time. The doors opened and yet another host to show us around the penthouse and let us know where everything was. It was beautiful. Yoga mats perfectly aligned, cucumber water fountain, smoothie bar complete with snacks, and fantastic 360 views of Atlanta. We got there a bit early so we got to meet the beautiful Chelsea, sign in, and pick our perfect spot. It was so exciting.
Once the yoga session started I was instantly transported into a place of absolute "zen". Chelsea was amazingly talented and I absolutely loved her yoga sequences and transitions. At first I was nervous because I hadn't been to a class in a while, but after the first few minutes my confidence rose and I began to let go. After an hour and a half I was completely rejuvenated and was full of inspiration. I just kept repeating my affirmations, "I am where I'm supposed to be, I am perfect the way I am, I am here, i am present," and so on.
After the yoga session they had set up a smoothie bar and healthy snacks to help boost us back up with energy and feel all yummy inside. As my friend and I were leaving, of course not before taking silly selfies up in the penthouse ( I mean who wouldn't?), we both were saying how going to this session on top of the world really showed us that we are on our way. by taking our leap, even though it's hard and slow sometimes, it has the most wonderful rewards. We just completed a yoga class...in a penthouse...in a fancy hotel...for only a few people! Omg!! I felt so big and bad waltzing out the door! I can't wait for the next adventure!
