Virtual Coffee Date – November 2017

Happy, happy Friday!

I don’t have any fun favorites to report on today so thought I’d stop by with a little life update. It’s been a hot second since I’ve done one of these. And I feel like that’s always what I say in regards to life updates.

Let’s catch up over some virtual coffee!

▶︎ If we were having coffee today… we’d talk about what I’m up to these days.

Answer: A little bit of everything:

  • taking two classes for grad school.
  • teaching yoga sculpt 3+ days at week at CorePower Yoga.
  • hosting events once a week or so with my company Holistic Happening.
  • freelance writing here and there
  • and of course all things Kayla in the City

Some days it feels like a lot and I’m paralyzed because I don’t know what to work on at any given moment. In those moments I usually make a new playlist for Sculpt because that’s WAY more fun than schoolwork. Other days I feel like an asshole because who am I to complain, I don’t work 9-5.

My schedule is weird and sporadic. It requires me to wake up at 4:15AM some days and go to class until 9PM other days. And sometimes I do both in the same day. This is my life right now. And I also know this weird schedule is temporary while I’m in school.

▶︎ If we were having coffee today… we’d talk about grad school. I CANNOT believe how fast this semester is flying by — and that’s something I never thought I’d say about grad school.

I’m taking two classes this semester and it’s going A LOT better than my previous semesters. This is definitely thanks to working with really good groups on group projects. It makes SUCH a difference! It also helps that I find the classes interesting — advertising and social media marketing.

I only have 4 classes left after this semester (!!!) which brings me too…

▶︎ If we were having coffee today… I’d tell you that I’m graduating this summer! AHHHHHHHHH!

I didn’t confirm this until last week and now I’m freaking out about it. Part of me is SO excited, as you know grad school hasn’t been the best experience for me. BUT the other part of me keeps thinking oh sh*t that means I have to get my life together!

What’s gonna happen after I graduate? Uh, good question.

My post-grad school aspirations could probably be a whole solo blog post. My career goals have shifted since I applied to grad school almost two years ago. I’m also a bit burnt out on all things social media if you haven’t noticed. Because of all this I’m not 100% sure what my path will be after college and how I will utilize my degree. I have a few hopes and dreams and ideas. But nothing concrete. My natural instinct is to freak out and do everything in my power to plan for the future. The other part of me knows I should relax and trust that things are working themselves out. We shall see!

▶︎ If we were having coffee today… we’d talk about how teaching at CorePower is going. I’ve been teaching a few Yoga Sculpt classes a week for two months now. With each class I feel more confident and comfortable teaching. BUT I still have many [many] moment of: Did I *really*  just say that!? Moments when I legit forget what a reverse fly is called. Really, Kayla? I’ll blame it on the early wake ups 😂

I still pinch myself that I teach at CorePower. Since I took my first CPY class in LA it’s been a dream of mine and I can’t believe it really came true. I’ve been thinking about doing a huge post on what you need to know about Yoga Sculpt and tips for first timers / newbies. Let me know if you have any questions about Sculpt!

▶︎ If we were having coffee today… we’d talk about Holistic Happening.

Leslie and I are already in full swing planning events for 2018. Before we announce all that fun stuff, we still have a few events to finish out 2017:

One last salty yoga class for the year! Perfect if you’re dealing with a cold thanks to the season change or nasty dry skin. Tickets + Details here.

Vision Board Workshop for 2018. I am SO excited to lead our second annual vision board event. Get ready to kick some ass in 2018 and get inspired. Tickets + Details here.

Your turn: If we were having coffee today what would you tell me about?

Class Review: Rumble Boxing

The Scoop on Rumble Boxing: I’ve being dying to go to Rumble Boxing for some time now. For starters, they’ve been targeting me on social media since before they opened. I’ve also heard great things from friends that have gone. When Armitron Watches invited me to come to Rumble for an event with them I couldn’t say YASSS…

How to Have a Healthy Relationship with Social Media.

My relationship with social media is the epitome of a love/hate relationship. On the one hand social media changed my life for the better: I’ve met SO many incredible people, friends and a business partner thanks to instagram. social media gives me a platform to create and inspire, which is what I love to do. I get to…

These Are a Few Of My Favorite Things // Vol. 4

Happy, happy Friday! I’m feeling a huuuuuge sigh of relief this week after taking a midterm Monday. Not gonna lie, it’s always hard for me to hunker down and get studying. I’d MUCH rather be writing and creating playlists + sequences for yoga. I even did procrastination laundry last week which means I was REALLY trying to…
