A Beginners Mind

A Beginners Mind

Play More & Cook Less

Play More & Cook Less

The Great Divide

5 Road Trip Tips

5 Road Trip Tips

I love a good road trip. There’s something about packing up the car with bikes and a limited amount of “stuff” and hitting the road that feels so good. The wind in my hair, a good soundtrack and the beauty of the landscape rushing by. In my younger years, road trips...

Reach Out Don’t Freak Out

Ease is the result of the effort. I plan my yoga classes, how my day will flow, what and when I’ll eat, when and how I’ll  move my body, and how I’ll spend my summer, all in advance. I know I'm not alone in this, but I haven’t always found planning to be a source of...

YOGA: Working Overtime

YOGA: Working Overtime

Your body is wise. I know I’m not alone when I say I came to my yoga mat to enhance my physical health. I’ve been an athlete all my life and have always had a desire to move my body in different shapes and forms. I get satisfaction from sore muscles. It’s a reminder...

YOGA: An Inside Job

YOGA: An Inside Job

There are many benefits to having a consistent yoga practice. Even though we may roll out our mat for the physical benefits, it’s common to experience benefits to our mental and emotional state as well as notice how it seeps into our life beyond the sticky mat. Yoga is “union”, and when there is unity, there is peace, vibrancy and connection.
