I graduated from teacher training at the beginning of July. Since then, I have had the pleasure of sharing these teachings with some new students.

One friend told me that she would rather go to a HIIT (High Intensity […]Read more "Yoga is Intimidating "
I am one week in to my yoga teacher training at Yoga Vida. We learned philosophy (which I loved) and anatomy (which may be the reason I fail this class).

But having done a little research, it turns out I am doing a pretty good job. And […]Read more "Meal Planning"
