One day while sitting in Whole Foods in downtown Sarasota(our other daily hangout) I noticed an advertisement in Natural Awakenings for Yoga Teacher Training at a local studio. I had been practicing yoga at the time about 8 months and I really wanted to take my yoga practice farther and dedicate more time to it and in my mind participating in yoga teacher training was a way to do that. After talking it over with Norwood I decided to visit the studio that would be hosting the yoga teacher training and see if it was at all a possibility.

Turns out the people were friendly and knowledgeable and I felt I could definitely spend five months of my life with them. Dedicating myself to the yoga teacher training meant one thing though… we would have to be in Sarasota for at least another five months. Although we had planned on leaving for the Keys in November 2011 we all decided that the yoga thing was something that I needed to do while we were in Sarasota. So we there we were anchored metaphorically and literally in Sarasota until January 2012. My yoga training is a whole another adventure that I will talk about in later posts and writings. But to give you an idea here is something I wrote while enrolled in the program…
Besides my yoga training there was just one thing left for me to do before all my land commitments were fulfilled and we could officially set sail and that was complete the Walt Disney World Marathon 2012. That of course is another adventurous story that I will have to share in yet another post but for now let me just say that… I finally finished that marathon!

So it was a week after the completion of my Yoga Teacher Training that we finally set sail. We left Bradenton on January 23 and started to make our way south. Our first stop was Sarasota (we went back to Bradenton just to take care of the car and a few other loose ends) then we headed out in a long first trek to Gasparilla Island… which I will tell you all about next post.
