Fall Back 2017

Wow, It’s been months and months since I’ve written a post. There are definitely things I want to share with you all. Just time isn’t on my side these days. You can keep up with me via social media and my monthly newsletter (you can sign up with the button to the top right.) On […]


Continuing to reinvent myself

At the end of my yoga teacher training in May 2014 we did an exercise in class where we pretended like we were all getting together a year later for a reunion. We talked about what we did. The idea was if we said it as if it did actually happen it would make it more real. We […]


Spring Forward 2017

It’s that time again to Spring Forward (Sunday at 2 a.m.). Twice a year I write about time change. (Read last year’s Spring Forward post here.) I have never been a fan of time change. I don’t get the point of it. I grew up in Arizona where time change doesn’t occur. I say, let’s Spring Forward and […]


Wine and yoga event

I am super excited to announce that I am partnering with Hip Chicks Do Wine for two wine and yoga events. Don’t worry, we’ll practice yoga first and enjoy wine after. Yoga before wine … you’ll be fine. There are two wine and yoga events planned for Saturdays, April 8 and May 6, from 1:45-4 […]


13/14 Days of Love and Yoga

I was invited to participate in a partner yoga challenge for 14 days from Feb. 1-14. My partner doesn’t practice yoga. But I still wanted to participate in the challenge. Some of my male yoga students came up with the couch/beer partner pose idea. I adjusted it slightly since The Husband is usually lounging in […]


Chair online yoga with Ann

During Portland’s last snowstorm I knew I would have many classes canceled. We’ve had several snowstorms/ice storms since December that it’s difficult to keep track. But one of the more major ones in December had me going stir crazy. I knew I couldn’t just binge watch TV during another–and yes there was another and another […]


Snowpocalypse Part 4

Wow, Snowpocalypse Part 4 came to Portland with a vengeance. Please be safe and stay warm. Only drive if you absolutely have to. The best way to keep updated with the status of my classes is to visit: gofitgirl.com/yoga-classes/. That will be the most up-to-date place to find out if classes have been canceled. (I […]


Goodbye, 2016 … Hello, 2017

Today is the last day of 2016. I know many are saying good riddance to this year. But really, why? There are some things that happened this year that I am not happy with. But many great things happened this year as well. And we can’t have joy without suffering and we can’t have suffering […]


New Year’s Day yoga class

I am teaching a special yoga class on New Year’s Day at Turtles Yoga and Wellness as we step out of 2016 and transition into 2017. As we enter the new year we will take the time to set our intentions for the coming year. We will start our lovely practice by setting our intentions and a […]

All proceeds will be donated to Standing Rock. Spots are filling up, but there are still some openings available. Space is limited. Sign up ahead of time to secure your spot. You can […]
