Perfectly Imperfect

Perfectly Imperfect

You are strong enough.

This week I am taking a break from my usual videos to talk about patience and progress.

It can be very easy in the beginning to see results and to feel great and to challenge our bodies and our minds past what we were used to. Eventually the results aren’t coming as fast and it can be easy to get discouraged about what we are doing.

When I first started practicing yoga about 4 years ago, […] Read more

The Mod Squad – Friday Night Lights Special!

Who’s ready for some amazing workouts!

It’s hard to believe the Crossfit Open is here again. Seems like we were just watching the games! The excitement around the announcements, workouts and clues is all over the place and the enthusiasm is contagious.  We have some amazing people competing and I thought what better way to keep everyone healthy and moving than a little yoga!

I put together a 10 minute flow to stretch our back, hips and shoulders (places we all seem to hurt 😁). Now you can take as much time or as little time going through the movements as you like. […] Read more
