Day 1️⃣ of #UnblockYourPotential with @cyogalife ➡️ #Fish with block or #Matsyasana variant 🏆🥊🪵
This was all relaxing fun and games until I realized I had to lift my legs. Totally changed the experience!

Jumping in on this challenge. I’ll be on vaca for quite a while so I may not always have props available to me, but it’s been a while since I’ve done a challenge so here we go.

Repost from @cyogalife

Announcing August’s challenge: #UnblockYourPotential. I love to propose challenges with props. Whether it’s a wall, blocks, a strap or extra mat, it’s fascinating to find new uses for them, both to make poses more achievable or more difficult. They’re so versatile, you can let your imagination run wild 🙋🏻‍♀️ and create your own variants. This month is going to be all about blocks, we’re going to need a couple or, if you don’t have, a few sturdy books and a big towel can play the part (you can also get creative with that!). If you take a look at the calendar, I included a bit of everything: backbends, hip openers, inversions, balancing, strength… where blocks can help make our lives easier, isolate actions, highlight certain elements, but also, complicate things more😉. Not to worry, the majority are postures I teach regularly in my classes and students get A LOT out of them. They love them. I hope you will too and your #practice will take a big leap🏆. Don’t get stressed about some, remember I don’t like to leave anyone behind and always give alternatives to practice. I used to sit in a corner and watched other people do amazing things. I swore myself that if I ever taught, I’d never let anybody feel that powerless so, don’t hesitate and let’s take the journey together!💥💥 As usual, to join, simply:
1️⃣ follow @cyogalife
2️⃣ repost this, comment, tag 2 friends (easier to finish!)
3️⃣ participate and post using #UnblockYourPotential
Besides my daily pose & explanation, my fellow helpers this month, Katy @katydoesyoga and Christine @christines.moves , will provide with further modifs and insights. Plus, awesome gifts 🎁, await the winners at the end🙌🏻. Get ready, we start in few hours!!☀️

*** Last chance to do some outdoor yoga this summer (with me anyway 😉) 🧘‍♀️🤸‍♀️ Hope to see you there!

Reposting from @gethotyoga‘s page. I wanted to share this post because I took Sean‘s (@1bluheron ) gentle flow class a couple of Fridays ago at the studio in Bonney Lake. It was really good. I have to tell you, it takes a lot to surprise me in a yoga class. I have taken literally tens of thousands of classes in my life. But, he comes to the practice with his background in martial arts and a completely fresh approach to movement. It was really great. Take it.

MEET SEAN. "I am inspired when I see others vulnerability despite the odds and their comfort zone. Especially when they are being authentic and going after their dreams. Inspiration abounds!
About 15 years ago I injured my knee in a skateboarding accident. I decided to take a yoga class. I had only heard of yoga and the schedule said “beginners series”. So, I show up in jeans and a t-shirt in this 110-degree room. The instructor takes one look at me with a smirk and says “you probably want to lose the shirt”. Everyone was like that; funny and sweet. Also, my knee healed up within weeks. So initially, I came for restoration work. What I found was a health-conscious community built on self-improvement.
I am moved by the shift I see in people when they take charge of their yoga practice. Someone might be in pain and they leave my class pain free. Or perhaps they achieve a state of peak performance while practicing. I experience a shared awareness of gratitude when people walk away from my class with the best possible result and transformation.
Fun fact:
I am ridiculously good at making cat noises……"
~As a fellow teacher, Sean’s classes are ever inspiring and full of knowledge. He has a mindfulness about him and a unique understanding of the movements and capabilities of the human body and truly meets his students where they are. His teachings are a reflection of his experiences, unique in the best way, strong, mindful with a little bit of humor trickled in. Side note: Sean is also an extremely talented musician! We are so grateful to have Sean a part of our yoga family! You can catch Sean on Friday nights in Bonney Lake!

I'm back in the PNW after a way-too-short trip home to NJ. But, I'm happy to see everyone here: husband, kids, dog, and of course, my students.

Auburn Yogis, join me tonight at @longevita for hot Vinyasa at 6:30pm

*** NEW class alert ***
Starting next Tuesday I will be teaching a 45 minute HOT CORE class at 6 AM. Just once a week on Tuesdays, so don’t miss it! Register at @longevita

Hey, Bonney Lake yogis! THIS IS NOT A DRILL... This Thursday at 6pm I'm teaching my first hot yoga class in Bonney Lake since March 2020. 6pm Vinyasa (and 7:30pm yin too, but who are we kidding? 😬😝). So do what you have to do... take off work, get a fu*king sitter... whatever! Just get your ass in that room.

Happy Friday! I have a new free Vinyasa class up on my YouTube channel: 360° of Core Vinyasa

When the request for core happened today, I decided to explore what that really means. It’s easy to confuse core strength with only ab strength and specifically, six pack muscle strength. Your core is so much more than that. Your back muscles, your glutes, and ALL of the muscle groups of your abdominal wall (iliopsoas, rectus abdominis, transverse abdominis, internal and external obliques) play a role in core strength. We hit them all in this hour.

There are many, many more onDemand class videos on my website available by subscription. Check it out at

and of course, there are many opportunities to practice with me either virtually, or live in-studio, each week. 😘

It's Wednesday! Join me for hot yoga tonight at 6:30 PM @longevita in Auburn. 🔥🔥
