In a “previous life,” I traveled about every three weeks for business. Those trips were usually jam-packed and left little time for yoga on the road. In my “new life,” one of my own design and as a full-time yoga teacher, travel is almost exclusively for pleasure–even when it’s for my own business because my work is a pleasure! So, when the travel bug bites, I make sure to bring my yoga mat with me whenever possible.
That said, I recently accompanied my husband on one of his work-related trips to Seattle. I had hoped to practice with some of the teachers who I respect and are based in the Emerald City, but they were all traveling at the time. No matter–I found a little gem of an Ashtanga studio. Had a nice little practice in a very cool space. Thanks, Salt Room!
View from my mat.
I'm a work in progress.
Give me a sunny day at the beach followed by a late afternoon thunderstorm. My flip flops and running shoes somehow find rank and file among the melee of Manolos and high boots in my closet. I think finding bliss on a yoga mat is sheer happiness, but also enjoy lacing up and suffering...just a little bit...on a long run. Maybe this comes from my start in life. It began in Chicago, but we spent weekends and summers in a small beach town in Southwest Michigan. City mouse meets country mouse. Yin and yang. Juxtaposition. Balance. I'm fiercely independent, but after thirty-some-odd years on this planet realized that I'm also a little old-fashioned. *go figure* I'm mildly addicted to Kombucha. And eye cream. (I'm all about the moisturizer.) I appreciate good manners. Chivalry. Please and thank you. That's not to say that there isn't a little urban girl, punk rock heart still beating in my chest. There is. I've lived a lot of life so far...and miles to go before I sleep. So, that's me.
I'm an East Coast girl with punk rock heart and a yoga soul. Practicing, playing, teaching and sharing as much as I can.
I currently teach at two studios--it will be three as of September 1st, as I was recently named the Advanced Yoga class/workshop instructor for the newest location. Outside of my home studios, I offer workshops and private yoga lessons as well. Contact me if you want more information!
