We are more than halfway done with my first Teacher Training! it has been thus far an incredible experience; I couldn’t have asked for a better group of yogis. Since being involved with these trainings the last few years I’ve learned so much about how and why we practice yoga and why its so important. Mostly, how important it is as teachers to practice and to uphold the integrity of yoga and the integrity of ourselves. Read more
Most of you know I am an emotional eater, because….well…Food is delicious and it makes me feel good. Although I understand the science behind the “why” and have done extensive training on understanding the dynamics of emotional eating and the neurological responses it creates…I’m still human and sometimes, you just need to allow yourself to do it without judgment. This also shows up in the amount of workload I put on my plate, along with being around people that can be negatively impacting my state of flow.
I will be the first person to tell you how important boundaries are, because they allow you to keep your P R A N A (vitality) and sometimes you just have to take care of yourself and your energy.

That morning you wake up and it’s suddenly summer? Everything seems once again alive and moving. I’m in love with the sunshine and the light of the day that spills into the evening…

I’ve always said, I can’t be an advocate for change if I’m not willing to change. As a yogi and a coach, I have found that being faced with major change in life is when I need to bring my practice off the mat and into the world so it can help me propel forward. The practice can then support me as I work through the fear and confusion that change can bring. I have become quite a veteran of these radical life-changing scenarios, but it doesn’t make it any easier. I remember when I first left Los Angeles to move to Portland over three years ago, it took a moment or (a year) for me to get into the idea of living some place new. It had been about a year in discussion, but the planning happened in a matter of days. Read more
