#Handstand365 Take 2

I thought I had another couple of days until my second round of #handstand365 completed. While reliving the time around my move from Colorado (thank you, Facebook memories), I came to realize that I started #handstand365 December 1, 2014. Meaning my 2 year anniversary of this daily challenge was last Thursday. This past year I…

“I needed that SO much!”

My favorite thing to hear as a teacher after yoga class is, “That was so fun!” My very close second favorite thing to hear is, “I needed that so much!” Let’s be honest. I would love to teach back-to-back handstands and arm balances with some vinyasas tossed into the mix every class. But I just…

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…

Our options: Rowena Crest (a 1.5 mile jaunt along the Oregon side of the Gorge) and Dog Mountain (um, let’s just say the opposite). Well, we chose the latter. Except for…

36 Hours in Seattle

I couldn’t say when the last time was that I ran an official race. So when we got invited to join in on the initial 5k for the United Relay, we jumped at the chance! Literally… The race was at 6pm on Wednesday in Seattle. That means… faux weekend road trip with the girls! Jamie, Nicci,…

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…
