  • 2016 Dominican Republic Photo Journal


    I think I took over 500 pictures over the course of the week we spent in the Dominican Republic for our yoga retreat and vacation. I have quite a few trip posts planned for you in the coming weeks including full resort reviews of both Zoetry Agua Punta Cana and AlSol Tiara Collection Cap Cana. [...]

  • Yoga in Paradise


    Good morning from beautiful Zoetry Agua in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic! We arrived on Wednesday for our fourth annual Y2 Yoga retreat and our third trip to Zoetry Agua. This was the location of our very first retreat and we were also here for a friend's wedding two years ago. It's good to be back. We [...]

  • Zoey Update + Yoga Retreat Update


    Short post tonight because it is late and I teach early on Tuesday! First, biggest thanks to you guys for your concern over sweet Zoey. Happy to report she's made a good recovery and seems to be doing much better. (Can you believe how big she is!?) I will spare you the graphic details but [...]

  • New Music Sunday + Weekly Workouts


    I hope everyone is having a nice Sunday. It's 34 degrees and raining here but it makes for a cozy, productive day. It was especially nice for teaching hot yoga this morning. I made a new playlist for class. And here is the Spotify link to follow. I am really trying to embrace Spotify to [...]

  • Vacation Week Workouts


    Hi! I'm home! I kind of decided to take a break with the blogging for the last few days of vacation and focus on writing during my limited working hours and soaking up the experience the remainder of the time. There was a moment yesterday where I thought "I could blog or I could take [...]

  • So Much Beautiful


    Only two days left of this amazing trip so soaking up all the sun, friends, yoga and relaxation that I can. Here is a quick photo recap of what my days have looked like. It's truly been a trip full of beautiful everything...moments, people, scenery. I have been getting up at 5:30 or 6 most [...]

  • Arriving and Exhaling


    Hola from Mexico! My alarm went off at 4:45 a.m. and I happily bolted out of bed to get ready for an early flight. We have a great airport in Charlotte and I knew there would be lots of good breakfast options. It was nice not to have to choke down breakfast at home at [...]

  • This Week’s Eats + Off to Mexico!


    Happy Friday! This time tomorrow afternoon I'll be practicing yoga on an open air pier in Mexico with this view... This trip crept up so fast! I can't believe that I'll be spending the next week in Mexico on a yoga retreat with many of my close friends and students from Y2 Yoga. We had [...]

  • Grocery Restock, Cranberry Sauce Recipe, Tuesday Eats & Details On A Yoga Retreat


    Hi and happy Wednesday. I so enjoyed reading your comments on my last post about your travel mishaps. Smooth travel is definitely never a guarantee but I think it's worth it! :) As I mentioned in my last post, I spent most of Tuesday catching up and getting back into the groove. Here's a look [...]

  • Sunday in Photos


    It's been a good weekend but I haven't stopped moving so I'm just now checking in with you. My weekend has been full of CrossFit, teaching yoga, Ikea trips, house project, social gatherings...busy but good and fun busy. Today's biggest accomplishment was assembling my first piece of Ikea furniture all by myself. Like using the [...]

  • Yoga + Vacation + Friends = Paradise


    I arrived back in Charlotte around 7 p.m. tonight but not sad that vacation is over but incredibly grateful for the experience. The past seven days of vacation have been more amazing than I ever could have imagined. I think was more smiling, laughing, loving, happiness, peace and gratitude on this trip than there's been [...]

  • A Day in the Vacation Life…

There are 24 of us who traveled down here together to yoga and vacation. Basically, adult spring break. We practice twice a [...]
