One year ago today, I stepped into the studio at barre n9ne, and taught my very first barre n9ne class.
As I stepped into the studio this morning, I couldn’t help but think back…
...to stepping into the studio for the first time, an opportunity of a lifetime (unknowingly) ahead of me.
…to getting certified in the barre n9ne method, after hours and hours of training, learning, practicing and gaining confidence.
…to helping launch the second location of barre n9ne studio, a studio I now call my second ‘home’ (and a mere 5 mins from my true home!).
…to experiencing what Jess and I like to call #everysingletime where no matter what mood, time of day, etc. we ALWAYS feel like a million bucks, like we helped our clients work towards their goals, that we inspired, welcomed, pushed, and enjoyed every.single.minute.
…and to being part of a family and community of clients and instructors that care so damn much about each other, that motivate, support, and truly care for each other. I firmly believe that to achieve that level of community is incredible difficult, it cannot be replicated, it cannot be forced…it just…happens. Naturally.
And, more than anything, after now teaching hundreds of classes, meeting hundreds of clients, and experiencing day in and day out such a passion, I truly feel so blessed to be doing what I am doing. It feels surreal…and one of my biggest blessings, one that I vow to continue to pay forward day in and day out. Because I believe in it, I love it, and I cannot imagine *not* being part of this family.
As we lovingly say…#b94lyf. And to Tanya…thank you. A million times over.
