Sarasponda Yoga has gone quiet in recent months as I’ve moved through some major changes in my life. I’ve been focused on making this transition with patience and grace and have been sharing my experience primarily through my personal page on Instagram.
It’s been a time of massive growth and transformation, and I wanted to wait until I felt solid ground under my feet before sharing more on the yoga side of things. I started this business over three years ago in a hopeless time in my life and it grew into something so much more dynamic and fulfilling than I ever could’ve imagined. Sarasponda Yoga was born of love and hope and a deep trust in the universe, and I’ve always been conscious of honouring and respecting this business that has become such a beautiful blessing in my life. But, I've been neglecting this blog and I feel now like this is the perfect time to return to it.
I left my home in Southern Alberta about a month ago to begin a new chapter in my life, having accepted an incredible offer to join the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise as their yoga instructor. I’m living steps away from Lake Louise and the energy here is so palpable - this stunning landscape has breathed new life into my soul; this feels like a total rebirth, in the best possible way.
After having some difficult experiences working with small businesses over the past year or so, I was seeking a mutually supportive work placement that would encourage me in continued personal and professional growth. And the Fairmont has definitely delivered on this; I feel fully supported by my team and really the entire hotel staff. There is so much opportunity here, and I'm just getting started.
I’ve been truly blown away by the kindness and heartfelt generosity of the community within the hotel; the people here seem so uplifted by this experience and opportunity that there’s just a general sense of joy and liveliness everywhere you go. This is such an incredible group of humans and I often find myself asking how I got so lucky to become a part of it. Coming to Lake Louise has felt like being adopted into a big, beautiful, loving family; I have so many new brothers and sisters, and I love them with all of my heart.
