I have come to a new path on my journey. I have been standing still..stuck looking at two paths ahead of me for months now unable to choose between the two.
The path on my right is the business side of Iron Lotus Yoga and what it would take to have a successful yoga studio: advertising, promotions sale, accounting, net working, teachers, workshops and all the things it takes to run a small business.
The path to my left is a path that leads me towards a simpler more humble life of family, children, travel, yoga, meditation, retreats and simplicity.
My ego has been telling me to continue work harder, give 100%.
My fears are saying who are you if you don't run a studio? Will I be letting all of you down? will you understand? will we maintain our friendships? what will happen to the community we worked so hard to build? how will I pay the bills? will I regret this decision? My heart is saying restructure, don't be afraid you are fully supported and this is the right decision for you, Litha and Josh. So after much meditation, contemplation and back and forth, I have decided to restructure Iron Lotus.
The studio will hold workshops, community events and whatever YOU guys would like to attend or teach. Andrea and I will continue holding our annual retreat in April each year. PLEASE don't look at this as an End or Closing of Iron Lotus... instead let's look at this as a transformation into something NEW!! What we transform into is uncertain... so I put it in the universes hands, close my eyes and jump! Love always, Laura
