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 […]

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 […]

Reflective/self-care sequence

My theme over the past week was about being reflective and showing self-care. The sequence was more about being in the pose than getting into it. Reminding ourselves of peace, love, compassion, kindness and acceptance for ourselves. I was really excited to teach this and share it. But then Snowpocalypse part deux happened in Portland. […]


Take Time for You

As we get ready to enter what I call the Crazy Time Season we have to remember to take care of ourselves. Self-care is so important but we tend to neglect taking care of No. 1. I truly believe you can’t take care of anyone else unless you take care of yourself. Self-care comes in […]

We can be strong and support each other

Preparing for Fall Back 2016

Twice a year I write about time change. And we are upon that time once again. For most of us in the U.S. we will Fall Back on Sunday at 2 a.m. Many of my readers are from Arizona, so this post doesn’t apply to you as much. (And note to my family, starting Sunday […]

Today was my last Thursday teaching two classes. Two super fun classes. Two classes with amazing students. About a month or so ago I gave notice for my Sunday classes. I realized I needed another day off. One day off a week (where I was still quite busy and sometimes subbing) was just not enough. […]


Sundays off

Today was my last day regularly teaching on Sundays. I made a decision for me. I needed another day off. I needed to be able to spend more time with The Husband. I needed to be able to sleep in on Sundays. I needed to be able to make a brunch on Sundays with out-of-town […]
