Writing Wednesdays // Hello, Chicago!

Drum roll please…

We are officially moving to the Windy City, the City of Big Shoulders, and the Home of Cubs. It is the land of deep dish pizza, high taxes and highway traffic. It is a new kind of adventure containing concrete, public transit and overpriced coffee drinks.

I will continue to host events out in the suburbs and subbing occasionally, but my goal is to immerse myself in the city, the culture and north side neighborhoods. With that being said, I still have space left at Detox Retox this weekend Saturday, August 26th at noon at The Arlington Ale House. Sign up here or shoot me a quick email and bring cash. We will be opening up the event to drop ins, so if you are really feeling non-committal just show up with your cash on Saturday!


I am putting on my big girl yoga pants and will be jumping head first into the vibrant yoga scene. I feel like there is a yoga studio every other block each claiming to be the best at one thing or another. I would like to get my 500hr and prenatal certifications this year, and now that I will be surrounded by experienced teachers and well-established studios I feel that this will be an optimal opportunity. I need to start taking classes to get a feel for each studio, but, oh my, the list is endless! Where to begin?

Calling all Chicago yogis: where do you recommend to practice, train and teach?

Not much else to share on the blog this week as I am getting in the thick of it with moving preparations, job hunting for yoga and outreach dance positions, trying to figure out exactly where to store our 8 bicycles, deciding if the canoe will make the jump to urban living, and discovering where Luna and I will be running and yoga-ing in the very near future. #lunainthebigcity

Peace, love and Namaste,

Kristin (& Luna)
