I'm a M.A.D leader - one who is trying hard to 'Make a difference.' That is what prompted me to say yes to demonstrating the tree pose in front of approx. 250 people at the Aspire M.A.D Leaders event in London. You can pretend that the above photo taken in Puerto de la Cruz is actually me in London, ExCel.
So in spite of my sitting here today a bit snotty and grumpy at my lack of energy, I'm trying to carve out some time time to reflect on what has been an epic eight days days in my life.
I ran my last children's yoga class for the year in Chiswick - a blessing as always.
It was my birthday.
I was part of the magic at the Aspire M.A.D Leaders event in London.
And I had a rather nasty cold and chesty cough.
So what does this mean for Yoga with Rupy? I'll shortly be announcing details about my weekly yoga classes starting in January in Chiswick and West Ealing in London, keep an eye on the bookings page. I'm also about to start planning for workshops in the UK in Summer 2017 and workshops in Europe in 2018! There I have said it, I am committed to doing something about it :)
Thanks to Gosia Gorna's 'Expansion Game' that I played at the Aspire M.A.D Leaders event I really believe anything is possible for 'Yoga with Rupy' and for your families and yourselves. If I add this to my learning this year that by tuning into ourselves, listening to our hearts, starting from where we are, and taking those small steps, they will lead to big change.
That is what I am telling myself, the snotty but now more lighter for writing yogini. I hope through our shared yoga practise and more reflective blog posts from myself and other M.A.D leaders, we can all share our experiences, supporting one another on our journey through life and shine our light on this day and every day.

There's another blog post to come about the Aspire M.A.D leaders event - I can't do the enormity of the event justice right now, till next time.
