  • Without A Plan, Your Goals Are Just Wishful Thinking

    PlanBasically in my online group coaching program I give my clients a weekly plan of attack to follow that has already proven to gift amazing results to their bodies, minds and spirits!

    Rigid lines and rules to follow are NOT my approach. They will burn you out and are not a long term success plan. BUT a plan that is inspiring, grows with your potential and is proven effective IS where it is at! (more…)

  • Yoga & Fitness Tips: Episode 6 & 7

    backbend_sunsetSo today I am sharing 2 tips that will rock your body’s potential. One for yoga and one for overall fitness!

  • Why You Want To Blend BOTH Yoga And Fitness: Episode #5

    runI love yoga and high intensity training! Duh. These disciplines both have many benefits when practiced individually; but when practiced together your body will experience new levels of potential!

    Yoga works mostly slow twitch muscle fibers; but do you know that approximately 50% of our muscle fibers are fast/super fast twitch muscle fibers? This means that 50% of your body’s muscle potential may be left unchallenged if your only practice is yoga. Being a die-hard yoga junkie, I played just in that world for about 10 years. About 4 years ago I branched out and took all the amazing, fabulous things I loved about yoga, and spiked it up by adding weight training and high intensity interval training.

    I now strategically weave plyometrics, high intensity interval training and unique strength training exercises into my fitness classes to strengthen the muscle fibers that get under challenged in yoga. And my body feels more alive now at 39 than I did when I was 29! That is why I am so fired up about sharing such a synergistic blend of movement and play for optimal health and vibrancy! (more…)

  • Episode #4: I Wrote Myself A Love Letter

    200672_10151364639496730_202471069_n-300x300One of the first assignments I give my online yoga and fitness I work with in a private group setting is to write themselves a love letter.

    This is an assignment I was first introduced to by a mentor of mine here on island, Jane Winter, and it is one that holds such powerful resonance that I now share it with those I coach online too.

    Today’s fitness tip goes way beyond the physical and straight to the heart of our spiritual physique. This is a practice that I promise you will change your life if practiced consistently and can make a HUGE shift in your energy and inspiration right away too. One of my newest VHB (very happy bodies) members shared a PROFOUND testimony from stepping into the VHB assignments full out her first week. You won’t believe her testimony. I wonder what you will receive too?

  • Brussel Sprouts Confession

    brussel sproutsConfession time. I jumped the gun. I totally judged a book by it’s cover. Before really ever getting to know the truth, I held tight to my preconceived notions and I swore I hated (yep, I said it) brussel sprouts.

    But really they are delicious! Delicious and oh so nutritious!

    If you have never prepared them, maybe because you thought you didn’t like them like I did, then here is how you do it (how I do it anyways):
