    I hope it goes well for you. I could not be gone that long.

      I totally understand, Cathy – it was tough to figure out how to take such an extended amount of time out of my life. however, I’ve met lots of folks who are in the extended training while I’ve been here, and it’s worked out very effectively timing-wise for them. If you’re interested in teaching, have you considered an extended training?

    Hi Nick! Just watched your video. How exciting you’re going to New York for training! I am beginning training in Tampa soon. I recently just decided on a total career change and am going to school to get my Masters in Acupuncture and starting Yoga teacher training as well – although the extended version. I often have the same questions – what am I doing and will I even be good at any of it?!? But it’s exciting and you’ve got it right – to live every day passionately is a blessing! I’m sure you’ll be fantastic! Hope to meet you sometime. I have another friend in Portland too – maybe meet ya out there someday. Good Luck! Christie-Jo

      Awesome, Christie-Jo! My acupuncturist loves yoga as well. If we ever meet in Portland, we’ll have to practice together!

      Good luck Christie Jo! Go follow your dreams! Life is way too short! Keep in touch!

    Howdy would you mind letting me know which webhost you’re working with?
    I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different web browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot
    faster then most. Can you recommend a good web hosting provider at a fair price?

    Many thanks, I appreciate it!
