Life spun me in a sweet direction the beginning of this month, with the opportunity to teach yoga at a women’s downhill mountain bike retreat. Cat-Sass – Ride the Enlightening , hosted by Retallack Lodge , BC Canada.
A few days ago, I rode a snowmobile out of the mountains. It was just after 7 AM and across the valley, the Valhalla Range glowed orange in the new day. After two switchbacks, we left the sun behind and buzzed beneath Western red cedars that smelled moist and alive, like spring. The sky was scraped clear of clouds and a brilliant, unapologetic blue, and as we hurtled through the forest, I felt both fantastically grateful and a little bit sad.
