Yoga in NW PDX with Kristi Cole of YoYoYogi

{Rachael} Makeover Photoshoot in NW Portland + Why Professional Portraits Are Important To You

It’s amazing how when you pick up a healthy habit, you happen to fall into a community of seriously wonderful individuals. In this case, the YoYos of YoYo Yogi. In my search for a yoga studio to call home, I fell into the YoYo world and never looked back. The owners, Alex and Terri, are […]

Why You Don’t Do Yoga (But Should Anyway)

I talk about yoga. A lot. To yogis and non-yogis alike. I talk about yoga like other people talk about snowboarding or skateboarding. You know, the ‘bro’ talk, but more girl-ish. What I’ve found through my incessant chatter is that I’ve noticed some alarmingly repetitive statements from people who have spent little or no time […]

Jill Knouse Yoga Exploring Industrial Portland {and 3 years without a gym membership}

It was about 3 years ago when I decided to throw in the proverbial towel on a regular gym membership in search of a yoga studio to call home. In the months I spent making whores of various studios through Groupon and Living Social deals, I ended up at a CorePower C3 class with none […]

Why Mermaids Are Real

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.

A Rejuvenating Escape to an Island Yoga Retreat { Koh Yao Noi, Thailand }

After spending a whirlwind couple of weeks rock climbing on Tonsai Beach, I wanted to go somewhere quieter. Most of the islands in my Lonely Planet guidebook didn’t quite seem to fit the bill. In fact, Koh Yao Noi isn’t even listed in the SE Asia LP guidebook. I stumbled onto this piece of paradise […]

Rocking Climbing, Kayaking, and Getting Back to the Art of Travel on Cat Ba Island, Vietnam

This past winter the stars aligned and I took off to Southeast Asia. I’d had this trip in the back of my mind pretty much since I returned from South America in 2010. Having not left the country in nearly four years, wanderlust got the best of me and I booked a flight a month before I left the country…

{Rachael} Makeover Photoshoot in NW Portland + Why Professional Portraits Are Important To You

Fellow photographer Rachael hit me up last fall to shoot some portraits. The intention was that these images would ultimately become Christmas presents for her family. How sweet is that?? (And how awesome is Rachael’s hair that changes color depending on the light?)

It’s funny how, when we’re little, our parents drag us off to the crappy portrait studio in town every year to have cheesy photos taken. They then proceed to order a hundred copies of all different sizes, frame a couple, give away as many as possible, and then the leftovers sit in a cabinet in the basement until the end of eternity.
