#TakeTheLeap 30 Day Yoga Challenge Recap #1

Posted February 17, 2015 in yoga, TakeTheLeap, prAna and 5 more

I'm just a little bit more than halfway through the #TakeTheLeap 30 Day Yoga Challenge organized by SweatPink and prAna!!

I joined the challenge to get back into a regular yoga routine. For awhile, I was teaching up to eight fitness classes a week and yoga wasn't happening. I'm currently teaching five classes a week right now, so I have a little more time to get in my own workouts.

Now that I've done yoga every day for over 15 days, I'm feeling great!

Posted September 12, 2016 in yoga teacher training, yoga, yogi and 3 more


I woke up this morning and thought it was Saturday….it's Monday. I have a feeling it's going to be a long week.

I'm totally exhausted after being in yoga teacher training over the weekend. I plan to take it easy the next couple of days - keeping my workouts light and not scheduling too many health coaching consultations or client sessions. 

Here's a recap of my yoga weekend….

What I Learned in Yoga Teacher Training

I finished my last weekend of yoga teacher training! 

Going through the 200-hour yoga teacher certification program may have been one of the best decisions I've ever made. The experience was so much more than I ever expected. 

I went through yoga teacher training through Avani Yoga Studio in Hastings with Evolve to Harmony Yoga in Omaha. My teachers, Carole Westerman, Suzanne Wright and Elizabeth Israel, were absolutely amazing. I feel really lucky to have learned from them and the other teachers at Avani.

While I love taking studio yoga classes, they don't always fit into my schedule. Which is why I started practicing yoga at home.

The best things about practicing yoga at home are that you don't have to commit to a full-hour of yoga, you can wear your pajamas and you can drink coffee. Yes, something I break out of tadasana (Mountain Pose) to take a sip of coffee. 

The hard thing about practicing yoga at home is taking that first step to start an at-home yoga practice. I get it, binge watching Netflix can seem a lot more appealing than rolling out your yoga mat. 

But making time for yoga has about a trillion rewards for your mind, body and soul (that's an exaggeration, but it's a lot). 

So here are a few things you can do to begin your yoga practice at home...
