Keeping up during my week with snacks

We all need to make sure to take care of ourselves. I find it even more pertinent as a teacher, especially a teacher of yoga. I teach at multiple places for yoga and cycle, which means I drive from one class to the next multiple times a day. My eating schedule depends on my teaching schedule […]


A year later

A year ago today I graduated from my yoga teacher training at Piedmont Yoga Studio in Oakland, Calif. Wow, it’s already been a year? Wow, it’s only been a year? Marilyn, my mother-in-law, asked if there would be video of my graduation. I told her no, but there would be photos. Curt did end up […]


The Real Go Fit Girl!

As a yoga teacher, an indoor cycling instructor and a health and fitness blogger I try to reach the biggest audience I can. Besides with actually teaching and blogging I try to keep up with the kids (and the rest of us) with social media. (I can’t possibly understand all the social media out there, […]


Livin’ the dream

At the end of my yoga teacher training we did an exercise in class where we pretended like we were all getting together a year later for a reunion. As I type this I realize our reunion would be about now … We talked about what we did. The idea was if we said it as […]


Our bodies need energy, fuel

Like a car we need to fuel our bodies. I was talking to a friend recently telling her how I am teaching five cycle classes a week (among numerous yoga classes). Her next question was, are you in crazy great shape? (That’s not a quote. But she said something like that.) I told her I […]


Life without contact lenses …

I have been wearing glasses since I was 4. When I was in high school my eyes actually started to improve and I only had to wear glasses when I read, drove or was in school. That didn’t last long. In my early to mid-20s I decided to try contacts for the first time. I […]


Supporting, encouraging & challenging students is what teaching is about

I am currently working at LA Fitness (and soon another gym) as a cycle and yoga teacher. Click for my schedule here. I have taken indoor cycling classes as a student for seven to eight years. Indoor cycling is a cardio workout on a stationary bike where the students are guided by an instructor to ride […]


Taking on the teaching

After returning from a visit with the family in Tucson I jumped into my teaching gig at LA Fitness. On Wednesday night I taught a yoga class. Usually right before I teach a new class I get a little nervous. My students were kind and welcoming and the nerves went away rather quickly. I felt […]


Momentum is not a muscle

This is gonna be a smorgasbord of a post … First, I am now an LA Fitness employee, a yoga and cycle group fitness instructor. Starting soon I will be teaching three cycle classes and one yoga class with the hopes of adding some more yoga classes. I’ve been taking yoga classes at the town […]


And GFG! is back

I’m baaaack! Years ago Curt and I were in the Philly area visiting his brother and family along with Curt’s parents and grandma. Some of the family went on a canoe outing. Our nephew James was about 4 at the time. As we got closer to the canoe spot James started to recognize it as […]
