Good Morning Yoga Flow (coffee included)

Happy Monday! How’s your morning going? Hopefully it’s beautiful and bright and you’ve got it going on! (I’ve already smeared my makeup and stubbed a toe all before leaving the house.) This morning I wanted to give you a reason to get up and moving. Free yoga while you drink coffee. Monday mornings are the […]

Downdog 101

Adho Mukha Svanasana. Downward facing dog. Downdog. The pose that everyone loves to hate. But why? Why is that simple-looking pose so effing hard? I’ve been practicing yoga for about 5-6 years now and downdog was an asana that took some time to learn properly. I want to break it down for you so you […]

Teddy Roosevelt was a wise man

Good day friends! I hope you all had an amazing weekend!! We had a crazy busy weekend over here. We spent the weekend running around like crazy trying to get the new yoga studio ready as well as getting our family ready for the week (cooking, cleaning, snuggling, yelling, loving… you know, family stuff). My […]

The first day of fall!!!

*Runs to closet and pulls out all scarves and hats and everything mustard colored*   “I FREAKING LOVE FALL! It is my FAVORITE!” – every Midwestern woman.   But truly. Who doesn’t love fall?! It’s amazing. The brisk walks, the chilly mornings, pumpkin and pecan flavored everything. sign. me. up. About 8 years ago I […]

Amazing changes in amazing places.

Hello kind souls!   I hope everyone is doing well! Things are going well here in the Midwest. We’ve got so much going on that my mind is one big clutter ball. (Clutter ball? I just made that up.) But really, I’ve been a tornado of ideas and thoughts and goals and tasks and AHHHHH! […]

The coolest news of the whole year!

Hey friends! What a summer it has been! Most of you know that it was a rough summer for my family but by the grace of God we are making it through. It seems that when you feel lost or “stuck” that God is always working on something way bigger, amiright?! God’s so cool. I […]

YOU MATTER. Wanderlust 108 Festival.

  I’m not a girl that’s afraid to venture out on my own. It took me years to get to this point in my life but I can say that I’m finally there. I LOVE LOVE LOVE going on little personal adventures; just me, myself and I. This past weekend I went to a yoga […]

Detoxing with twists- how to detox with yoga.

With only 24 days until I get the amazing privilege of teaching yoga on the beach I realized that I’m not quite beach-ready. Although I won’t be swimming in the sea I will be meditating in the sand and doing as many inversions as humanly possible and I want to feel as healthy as can […]

Using yoga to get out of a funk: being happy for no reason at all.

Have you heard of the after-holiday blues? I don’t know if that’s a real thing but good night I feel like I have it. Probably because starting in October you are so stinking busy preparing for the holidays and that doesn’t stop until about now. We keep so busy that once the holidays slow down […]

It’s ok to laugh hysterically during meditation

A personal practice is important, a personal meditation practice is more important, in my opinion. You need time to reset your mind, clear away negativity and simply remove yourself from the world even if it’s only for a few minutes. A few weeks ago I went to the Nelson Atkins Art Gallery by myself. Going […]
