One day not too long ago I walked into YoYoYogi in Northwest Portland to learn there was a sub teaching my favorite class that evening. The owner assured me, since she knows how much I love my badass yoga and the dude who teaches it, that I’d like this girl. She was absolutely 100% correct. […]

To say I’m honored and humbled to be featured next to some very popular yogis would be a drastic understatement. But there it is. Sandwiched right in between @laurasykora and @stephynow. Two incredible yogis whose practice is way more advanced than mine, but where I aspire to be as some point in the future. They […]

In a recent yoga class, one of my most favorite instructors told the class that he had nothing to talk about. That it’s hard to think of something thoughtful to say every week. And that maybe we should give it a try sometime.
I’ve been going to this particular class for at least two years and it didn’t occur to me until that moment that he does a damn good job of giving his students food for thought all the time. And that I’ve come to rely on this guy as my personal living, breathing buddha to tell me about life.
