Focused Attention for 2014: A Letter to All Capricious Yogi Readers

Dear Capricious Yogi readers,

If you follow my site Yoga for Digestion (YFD), then you know by now that I've decided to put that project on hold for a little while. I'm still really excited about the project, but I started to feel like I was being pulled in too many directions. To be honest, I am having a hard time separating the work I do there with the work I do here on Capricious Yogi (CY). I started this blog in 2009 and just can't part ways with it! Writing here year after year continues to provide me much needed inspiration and I'm always amazed when I meet people who have visited this site and read my articles. It continues to blow my mind!

I'm attached to CY, what can I say? While I still have a passion for digestive health, I still also have a passion for all things yoga related. The two cannot be separated. With all my energy going to YFD I was falling further away the foundation that is this blog and so closely tied to my practice. Separating the two just didn't work. Which is why I've decided to bring them together.

Further, I was recently promoted to the Director of Teacher Training for Mind the Mat in Alexandria (a role that appeared on my vision board a year ago and is now happening). I'm excited for this position, but it requires lots of attention. I'm also working hard to finish the requirements for my 500 hour Life of a Yogi Teacher Training with Dharma Mittra. My goal is to be done by this Spring. With so much to do, my pet projects need to take a back set for now.

As I bring the sites together, I'll be revamping this site and transferring it to a more modern layout. My goal is to write more and yes, still provide lots of digestive health info related to yoga. I hope you'll stick around. If one things for sure, it's going to be great!

Lots of love,
Rachel :)
