Introducing Our Guest Blogger & Recent RYT Graduate – Heather Charney

“I took a deep breath and listened to the old bray of my heart.  I am.  I am.  I am.” – Sylvia Plath

When Dharma first asked me if I’d like to be a guest blogger, I was honored and excited!  All these thoughts of what I’d like to share with you, what I’ve experienced over the past 8 months, and how in the world I got here, swirled in my head.  Then, I was tasked with introducing myself.  At first, this seemed like a simple enough task, but when I began to put pen to paper, it ended up being quite a bit more challenging than I had originally anticipated.

Why was I so stumped?  I love to write!  From the time I was little, journaling has been a natural outlet for me to express myself, work through feelings, and scrapbook my life.  I usually have quite a bit to say.

It was the looming question that got me.

“Who am I?”

Quite the existential question, no?  One that many a person has spent an entire lifetime trying to figure out.

It is one that I am still trying to figure out and the answer can be quite fluid.

So, with that disclaimer, today, here’s what I know so far.  J

I am (or try to be)….

  • Brave, except when it comes to snakes and spiders.  Then, not so much brave as scared.  (Here is where that whole trying-to-be thing comes in.)
  • Smitten with the ocean, sunshine, green tea, and the smell of coconut.
  • Fearless in the kitchen.
  • A student of yoga and a teacher-in-training.
  • A documentary junkie, with an irrational love for reality dance shows.
  • A newlywed, daughter, and friend.
  • A bookworm.
  • Honest, tempered with kindness.
  • Open-hearted.
  • A lover of dogs, cats, and a rescuer of strays.
  • Not perfect.
  • Realizing every day that the more I think I know, the less I actually do.
  • On a path that is not always easy, but it is always worth it (even on days when my ego says it isn’t).
  • A Yogini-In-Progress.

I hope you’ll join me as I share how in the world I got here, what I’ve experienced over the last 8 months during teacher training and other musings along my yogic journey.

Wishing you love and peace,
