  • Words + Songs


    Just a quick check-in tonight. After a day of teaching, training and computer work, I cooked my favorite lemon parmesan salmon recipe for dinner. And we took Zoey and Sullie for a sunset walk. It's been so hot here this week but we had a quick storm this evening that cooled everything down nicely. It ended [...]

  • On Being a Possibilitarian


    I regularly share readings, quotes and stories from my own life experiences in my yoga classes. As a student, I personally enjoy when a teacher adds this "little something extra" so it's something I try to bring to my classes as well. It's so interesting to me how many times a student has come up to [...]

  • Flip Dog to Full Wheel Video Tutorial + Yoga Reading: You Are Not Broken


    While I love every yoga class that I teach and do my best to bring my all to each one, I spend a lot of time preparing for my weekend classes. They are my "special classes" where I put extra effort towards putting together a new playlist, sharing a reading or a message and having a [...]

  • Worthy Now. Right This Minute. As Is.


    I woke up this morning feeling kind of blah. I got on the computer and started working on a new playlist for my Sunday yoga church class. I was feeling a more chill and relaxed playlist and that came together nicely. The message was another story. I was at a loss for words. My heart [...]

  • Weekend: Slowing Down + Opening Up


    I spent the summer getting outside of my comfort zone and focused on creating connection and experiences with new and old friends. I put myself out there in a way that I really haven't in the past. I said yes to almost every invitation I got for everything from dinner to beach trips to workouts [...]

  • Being of Service


    Today is a day of honor. Today is a day of remembrance. Today is a day of gratitude. For the incredible sacrifice made by those men and women who served our country. Whether they're strangers, brothers, friends, mothers, spouses or grandfathers, each act of service was equally as important and honorable. I am really blessed to [...]

  • Mother’s Day Yoga + New Playlist


    Happy Mother's Day! While I wish that I could have spent the day with my mom I am so happy that I was able to celebrate Mother's Day with her while I was in Florida last weekend. I spent my Mother's Day with beautiful, beautiful yogis teaching class, taking class and with teacher trainees. This [...]

  • Easter Yoga + Playlist


    Happy Easter! For the last few years I have spent my Easter Sundays the same way I always spend Sunday mornings...teaching my 90 minute hot class at Y2. After two days of pouring rain I woke up this morning to find the sun shining, the air crisp and everything green and vibrant. It's the perfect [...]

  • This Week’s Yoga Readings + Playlist: On Taking Care


    Last week I shared that I'm going to start posting my weekly readings/discussion topics that I use for my yoga classes. I thought that in addition to that I will also post my playlist. Many of you have told me that you enjoy seeing my playlists (students, fellow teachers and readers looking for new music) [...]

  • Letting Go Of “Should Be”


    When I first started practicing hot yoga I looked so forward to my weekly Sunday afternoon class with Suzanne Bergen. It was not only hot and physically challenging but also spiritual and sacred. Suzanne always had a message to share with us at the beginning of class and it always seemed to be exactly what [...]
