Welcome to my offline passion. I’ve been a web designer for 20 years – 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 made my students do reps of one minute handstand holds at the wall today, so this is a show of solidarity LOL. 💪You guys are so inspiring! It is a joy for me to see all of my students get stronger and stronger and stronger. Love you!! ...

Full disclosure, I don't love this variation. I prefer #visvamitrasa straight-up with my balancing arm in front of my leg. Still, it's always good to marinate in the uncomfortable and embrace the challenge. Wanna come practice with me?  4 more chances to do it - all at @hotyogabonneylake

Tues: 8pm
Wed: 6am & 6:30pm
Fri: 6am

See you on the mat!

Sigh. I’m just overcome with grief over the billion animals that have lost their lives during the fires in Australia 🇦🇺🐨🦘. I’m praying that humanity snaps out of the delusion that we can just go on like this. #plantbased #vegan #climatecrisis #australia ...

Happy Monday! It's been a busy Monday workday for me, with a yoga class thrown in. Back in the office now and loving every moment of the rain outside happy on the roof. I actually love when it's pouring rain and I'm in the office. When the sun is out I wrestle with that nagging feeling I should be out there enjoying it. That said, I'm hoping it lets up by the end of the workday so Cinnamon and I don't have to run in it. I don't mind a little rain or mist, in fact I like it, but I'm not a huge fan of running in a downpour and neither is Cinny 😂 Alas, we'll do what we have to do. 🐶🤗 #yogaeverydamnday ...

I saw this variation of super soldier pose posted and I thought it was pretty cool so here we are. It’s not really a yoga pose. It’s not really anything other than a cool shape. 😂 but why not? Let’s make all the shapes while our bodies still can. ❤️ #hbly #hotyogabonneylake .

I love this pose and all of its complexity. It took me years—literally—to understand it. It’s one of those poses you can’t come close to cueing effectively within the scope of a vinyasa class because the hold would be unreasonably long. I can’t wait to teach an alignment workshop soon and spend some time breaking down this pose for students. Hopefully they will love it as much as I do. ❤️ #trianglepose #utthitatrikonasana #hybl #hotyogabonneylake #yoga #yogaeverydamnday #ashtanga #ashtangi #yogateacher #igyoga ...

Sad that you missed 108 sun salutes with me and Ommy on the winter solstice? Don’t be! It’s happening again 😊💕New Year’s Day at 9:30 AM at Hot Yoga of Bonney Lake @hotyogaofbonneylake it’s not as hard as you think. Modifications are offered. We take breaks and set intentions.
