Okay, it’s official … I am ON the Yoga Journal site. My first post ~ Meet Pamela Walsh ~ is now up! Check it out! Read, comment, have a glass of wine! Time to pack. My flight is at noon tomorrow. Here’s the link (and the bio anyway)! 🙂
Pamela comes to the San Francisco conference from Texas and the yogic world of Anusara Land. A young yogi in a middle-aged body, she “found” yoga just a little over two years ago. Shortly thereafter, she down-dogged her way into Christina Sell’s class, heard her laughter and her teachings, and she’s never been the same sense. Besides THAT one moment, this self-proclaimed “YogiTechChick” credits four life-changing yogic experiences:
— The afternoon she opened Light on Yoga and found that her college party trick was actually a yoga pose;
— The first time she “caught air” in bakasana;
—The day it dawned on her that savasana actually happened in EVERY class! (Well, except Christina’s, but that’s another post); and
— The precise moment she discovered that — despite looking deceptively similar — a big scoop of wasabi tastes nothing like guacamole. (Okay, so that wasn’t “yogic,” but it was life changing.)
Pamela honed her sharp journalistic skills during a 10-year stint writing a weekly newsletter for her local elementary school — Go, Kiker Comets! — where she reported on such challenging issues as overdue library books and contentious PTA meetings, not to mention the great cupcake controversy of 1999 for which she was nominated for a Pulitzer prize.
She lives in Austin with her husband, a dog, three sons, and two Mac computers. When not blogging for Yoga Journal (which, okay, is most of the time) she posts on her OWN site, PotentialWithin, about yoga, road trips with her parents, and anything else that amuses her.
Like to Twitter? You can also follow her conference tweets between her YJ posts.
Side Note: Pamela was first discovered blogging in the lobby at 2 a.m. during the Yoga Journal Conference at Estes Park last Fall. She has since been issued a key to her own room.
