Welcome to my offline passion. I’ve been a web designer for 20 years (here’s my business website) – and I still do that full time – but helping people in their journey to better physical and emotional health has become a surprising and overwhelming obsession of mine. I’m a yoga teacher registered with Yoga Alliance (E-RYT200), and I’ve taught over 1400 classes–so far! 😉 Additionally, I’m a Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider® (YACEP®). I’m also a Certified Personal Trainer and Certified Nutrition Coach with the National Academy of Sports Medicine. No matter where you are on your journey: a competitive athlete looking for an edge or a senior looking to improve mobility and balance, I’d love to help. I’m located in beautiful Lake Tapps, WA.

Motivation is overrated

July 24th, 2019|

Motivation is overrated! Ok, y'all, buckle-up. Here comes some tough love. Those of you who only know me within the scope of my life as a yoga teacher, might not like this side of me [...]

I lied. Here’s another post for this week. Working on my #hollowbackhandstand handstand after class with. @cyogalife Not my best #hollowback. I was so tired my arms were shaking! Teaching 6am &6pm today. See Sunday’s post for meeting IDs. See you soon! ...

This will be my only post this week. Class schedule below.

I try hard not to post about politics on here. Even on my personal FB page, those types of posts are few and far between. If you know me in person, you know well that is not a reflection of a lack of opinion. I feel strongly about pretty much everything in life, but you have to ask for my opinion before I hand it over. I'm not a fan of people pushing their views on me, so I don't do it myself. That said, I want to say this: watching the destruction of my city (Seattle) last night had me in tears. I believe in the cause. The systemic racism in this country demands protest and change. I'm worried that the violence, riots and destruction stepped on that message. I hope not. I pray that the images of violence and vandalism don't distract and consequently serve as a tool to those interested in preserving the status quo. Only time will tell.

I will also say this: I was in tears once again this morning, inspired by the sight of so many people who took it upon themselves to show up downtown to clean up. With garbage bags in hand, they set about the task of restoring the dignity of our beautiful city. They didn't do it for reward or recognition. I see you. Thank you.

I won't be on social media much this month. Starting tomorrow, in addition to my full time day job, I'll be squeezing in a 300hr training with @cyogalife (I'm deliriously excited!). But I'll still be on the mat teaching! Hope you can join me for one of my zoom classes:

I realize that one day life will return to normal and I’ll be practicing once again in a room heated to 105 degrees and I’ll be grateful for that, but until then I will happily take every opportunity to have a 4 legged friend joining me 🥰🐶 This is Juniper. @hotyogaofbonneylake yogis know her well; she’s our studio dog 🐕. The room isn’t hot these days so she was able to join us. She doesn’t do paws on assists like @yogi_cinnamon which was a nice change tbh 🙄😂 thanks, @rebemfras for joining me 💋💕

I wasn't disappointed that it was a cloudy day today. I had so much work to do in the office and getting it done is a lot easier when the weather is crappy outside. Teaching a class bright and early tomorrow morning at 6am, if you want to join me.

This is pretty sloppy, but I had to do a quick check to make sure I could still do what I asked my students to do this morning. It’s been a long time since I’ve done the headstand transition because of my neck issues. Lol. Whew 😅 ...

Happy Monday! Hope your weekend was lovely. I decided to take the boys out to the desert on Saturday. Even though I had planned to get work done, I just woke up in the morning and knew that I had to get out of the house. I've been so committed to the stay-at-home order, but I reached my limit. So, we crossed the mountains and headed to the Ginkgo Petrified Forest in Vantage. My boys, ages12 & 13 gladly hopped in the car. No one asked to bring a phone or an electronic of any kind. We played music and for the most part, we sat in comfortable silence. They looked out the window and watched the foothills turn into mountains, and then the mountains turn into desert. The weather wasn't great (or maybe because of the stay-at-home order), so there was hardly anyone out on the trails. We laughed and hiked and Zach pointed out literally every single snake hole we passed. 😳If we're friends on FB, so you'll me post lots of memes about the hilarity and difficulties of parenting, but the truth is, I'm absolutely in love with my kids, and never more so than I was on Saturday. They are at that age where there are visible differences every day and I loved every moment of being with them.

Amazing how refreshed I felt when I returned. Ready to work again, ready to teach again. I guess it doesn't take that much to recharge the batteries.
What's your recharge go-to?
