Happy Holidays!

This is a busy time of year for most of us. Work, school, family are all pulling us in so many different directions that it can be hard to take time for ourselves.  It can also mean eating treats we normally wouldn’t and traveling to see family and friends.  This week’s video is here to save your holiday!

I have put together a series of poses to help everyone spending long amounts of time in a car or plane or just sitting more than usual.  Plus, BONUS, many of these moves will also help us with our digestion.  […] Read more

The Mod Squad – Yoga Gear

The Mod Squad – Yoga Gear

How many different types of yoga mats can there be?

Any new sport often involves new gear and yoga isn’t any different.  Most yoga studios will have mats available for you to use, but if you don’t want to be on top of mat that everyone has been sweating on, then purchasing your own yoga mat is a must.  There are a wide variety of yoga mats out there and largely what you get will be based on personal preference.  Do you want a lot of cushion or very little.  Does the mat have enough grip to keep you from sliding off once […] Read more

Let’s talk feet…

Now I know that sometimes feet can cause a major ewww factor for some people but power through this because the end result will be worth it.  Today we are talking about two of our most important appendages and some ways we can start to treat them right.  We don’t always put as much focus on our feet in yoga as we probably do on our other body parts, but there is definitely more we can do to help these guys out!

I have had a couple of people ask me recently for yoga moves to help sore feet […] Read more

The Mod Squad…and breathe

The Mod Squad…and breathe

Inhale, Exhale, what was I doing again?

Today we are taking the Mod Squad way back to basics. We are all about breathing. Breathing is something we do all day, everyday without even thinking much about it.  That is until we get to our yoga class.  As a teacher I always try to get my class focused and conscious of their breathing before we even start moving into poses. What does focusing on our breathing even mean?

Often we connect movement to our breath in an attempt to help us be aware of our body and what we are doing and how […] Read more

A Mod Squad Special Announcement!

A Mod Squad Special Announcement!

Get ready to elevate your yoga!

When I first started doing the Mod Squad videos, my primary goal was to try and help as many people as I could.  Yoga can be intimidating and I wanted to make sure people felt like yoga was accessible to them and beneficial as well (there is a method to all my yoga madness).  The videos are doing just that!  I really love and enjoy the feedback I have received, but it still feels like something is missing.  And what might that be you ask, well the personal touch!

I want to be able to talk, […] Read more
