I love finding new & fun ways to stay active when I'm not teaching Pilates or yoga. I recently started skateboarding. I have to admit I'm finding myself drawn more and more to my skateboard. :) I enjoy the freedom of hopping on and off my board whenever I choose. I can't deny, to be "one" with the environment I'm skating is truly an adventure. I love the freedom I have to move in any direction I please, at a moments notice. The freedom to be "in the moment" as I skate, is the reason I keep coming back. Skateboarding forces me, physically, to stay connected and aware of my changing surroundings yet mentally, I find stillness and peace as I roll. This type of freedom can only be described as a near spiritual experience. :) At my command, I can have a gentle breeze on my face and the warm sun at my back, in a matter of seconds. I think I'm beginning to understand why skaters are so passionate about skateboarding. I wish more women/girls would try skateboarding. I think they would love this new found freedom.
My new pastime is finding girls to skate with and exposing more girls/women to skateboarding. It's just to much fun to keep it all to myself. :)
