    { 9 comments }

    I had the honor of spending last weekend leading a retreat with my dear friend Dorie at our fall Core Desire Yoga retreat at Wild Dunes Resort. First and foremost, I would like to thank the weather gods. Going into the weekend we had a 100% chance of rain. We arrived to find this on [...]

  • Introducing Core Desire Yoga

    Teaching yoga is my favorite thing in the whole world to do. While I love so many things about teaching, helping my students realize and believe in their own strength and start a journey of personal growth is high on the list. You see, what often begins as a physical practice that is a "good [...]

    This is the happiest kind of Friday of them all...a long weekend Friday! Although I'm not traveling anywhere, I'm hoping to make the above photo a reality. My grand plans for the weekend include sleeping, pool time with friends, movies and just hanging out at home. Sounds like the perfect stay-cation to me! Here are [...]

  • Fired Up Squat + Upper Body Workout

    { 50 comments }

    Welcome to Friday...the fired up edition! What am I so fired up about? First, squats! I LOVE SQUATS! My clients know they most likely won't get through a workout with me without doing some type of squats and push ups. They are two of my favorite movements ever due to all of their awesome benefits. [...]

    I have a quick exercise for you. - Make a list of five things you love about yourself. - Make a separate list of five things you wish you could change about yourself, insecurities you harbor, negative self-talk that runs on a repeat reel, etc. Which one was easier to write? If you're like me [...]

    Happy Friday everyone. A few things to share... How I've been working out.  Remember how I blogged yesterday about my 5 year BodyPump anniversary and that I was going to teach last night? Well, it was amazing and I felt so happy up there but it was SO HARD. Taking almost a month off of [...]

    Weekend in photos... I had to work on Saturday morning but it was pretty awesome. 1) Metro CrossFit was rocking and we had a great group for our morning classes with lots of new faces. 2) These sweet puppies were there overseeing the WOD! No really, every time people ran out of the doors to [...]

  • Friday Funday {Food, Music and Things to Read}

    Good morning and happy Friday! I had a 6 a.m. client today so I found myself wandering the aisles of Harris Teeter at 5:45 a.m. to restock my breakfast supply that I keep at work for these early mornings. I left with a Chobani Banana (really liking this new 2% flavor) and two products that [...]

    Happy Valentine's Day to all of my beautiful, loving and generally amazing readers.

    I am currently under a blanket with ice on my hip. It's really inflamed right now. It was feeling pretty okay despite the running I did last weekend until I decided to do a CrossFit workout yesterday consisting of box jumps, running and kettlebell swings. The last time I did a CF workout with a [...]

  • A Festive Sunday

    I taught yoga this morning, took from my favorite teacher this afternoon, baked gingerbread, bought holiday candles, had brunch with friends and am now curled up on the couch under a blanket with wine and How The Grinch Stole Christmas on TV. I think that classifies as a good day? Breakfast before teaching yoga this [...]
