It’s been a minute! Fall update…

 

It’s been a minute!

Several of you have reached out to say ‘hi’ and touch base and it’s been great to hear from you.  Thank you for keeping in touch. I thought I’d do the same…

My “New Normal”

It’s hard to believe my youngest son will be 9 months next week, and even harder to grasp the realization that we’ve been feeling the affects of this global pandemic for nearly that long. I’m sure many of us couldn’t imagine we’d still be dealing with such abnormal times.  Here in Ventura County, we’ve recently entered the “Red Zone” of our tiered reopening plan.  Along with other businesses, fitness studios have been permitted to reopen at 10% capacity. This is favorable news for studios who have been operating outside dealing with unpleasant weather conditions, road construction, and poor air quality.  I am sure teachers and clients alike were eager to move indoors!

For me, my new normal is working out well and I am content working from home teaching both yoga and Pilates private sessions via Skype and Zoom.  Buff Bones Mat Class via Zoom has also been going great, and each week I look forward to the group dynamic and community feel I love so much leading this class.  It has been very satisfying to connect with clients this way, knowing that I can offer an exercise option that is convenient, safe and rewarding to attendees as close as Camarillo and as far as Colorado!  If you are interested in joining me Thursdays at 10:00am you can find the registration link on my website.  I’d love to see you in class 🙂

Though I miss seeing so many of you who were a part of my weekly routine, working completely online has turned out to be a good match for my family, enabling me to be more present to the kids who are both home this school year. All things considered, I plan to continue teaching this way for the foreseeable future.  And while I realize it is not a match for everyone, I am very grateful it works for some of you.  It has been such a pleasure to continue to work together. There are not enough words to express my gratitude for your support and dedication!!
“The Kids Are Alright”

They truly are.  Like so many, we are doing what feels best for our small family.  We’ve moved from total quarantine, home haircuts and socializing solely on FaceTime to venturing out for Covid-style family visits, outdoor playdates, beach trips, and proper haircuts at the salon! (Wahoo!)  I think both kids are relishing in all the family time. Giove, my oldest, is fascinated by ALL things ocean related.  Days are spent pouring over ocean themed books, watching YouTube clips of marine animals or scuba divers, dressing up as a scuba diver and “diving” off the couch (*eek*), and visiting the local beaches or tide pools.  I am starting to feel like I live with a budding marine biologist.  Eliano, the youngest, delights in his brother, in my attention, and in finger foods.  They are happy, healthy, and LOUD.

As Always, Thank you… 

for taking the time to read and connect with me here.  I hope to hear from many of you to learn how YOU are doing.  Send me an email or text, give me a call.  Whatever works best for you.  I would love it! Till next time, stay safe, stay well, and keep moving,
