When I set out to create my screen name, I knew what my future goals for the name would be, so finding a name that could be branded or carried on was important to me. I spent weeks going back and forth with names and ideas. Nothing seemed to stick or feel right.
Like most things, when you are not thinking about it, it comes to you! So here I was doing one of the 3 things that most people say they are doing when their best idea pops into their heads.
Yoga + Meditation = YOGATATION was born!
The practice of yoga in such a focused state of mind that it becomes a moving meditation. - Urban Dictionary, 2011
I took to google to research and to see if there was anyone else that had this screen name or brilliant idea. Someone in the UK had a studio named this already since 2011...my heart sank. Nooooooo! Urban Dictionary already had it added to their database at this point too.
At this point, I had not even combed the world wide web for names as I wanted it to happen organically. So to happen upon this was heartbreaking to say the least.
But, that did not stop me. I went back to the drawing board and this time inquired the world wide web for help. Finding out that I could use the name but alter and adept it to my needs.
That is were the CA came in. I live in beautiful Canada! So, it was only fitting that it be put at the end as a bookmark to the name.
August 27, 2016 was my first post to Instagram. The next month I locked down my YouTube channel name. Facebook page was created in and around the same time. Because you have to have ALL the socials to reach many demographics, ages and genders.
Since than, I have evolved and so have my channels and content.
I now have a website (which you are on now reading this post!) where I hope to keep expanding and changing as my practice evolves and grows. Eventually, I hope to have video series, workshops and merchandise. Maybe even go as far as my own wellness studio!
*Hello Universe, are you listening? I am manifesting my intentions for the future.
My hopes for my path are never-ending and always changing. As I evolve and grow as a person, so does my practice and channels.
Thank you to those that have been here from the beginning, and those that are just joining now, Hello and welcome!
Yoga is YOUR practice, YOUR time, YOUR journey. Let it be what YOU need it to be. Step on your mat and Let it all Go.
