Feet to Head Does Not a Backbend Make

A few weeks ago, I got real in class. We were in splits, which I’m NOT good at. Getting better, putting a lot of work into it, but I’m not uber flexible in that way. Hello, hamstrings! (Yeah, sorry about that one guys.) I generally have the same thing to say to my students when we’re hanging out…

Spring is springing – #prAnastyle

It’s official! Spring has sprung in Portland! Flowers are blooming and I’ve skied 50-degree days to prove it… Though that last one was in Utah and Colorado. Don’t get me started on the fact that it dumped snow in all 4 ski areas I’ve been to this year after I left. (read: tone is bitter)  …

One and done?

I was inspired last night. I saw a video of my friend and student Christy Prior flowing between Sundial and Flying Splits, and looking gorgeous and effortless with it. I realized how long it had been since I’d given Sundial a go. I think it was even back in 2014 when we took the following picture…
