Sarah Beth, what are your favorite yoga clothes?

Athleta! They sell yoga, running, swim & lifestyle clothes. I love that store! I get a great discount for being a teacher and their return policy is amazing. I brought my favorite jeggings back because there was a hole in the crotch and they exchanged them on site! They would have given me a cash refund but I really wanted the jeggings. For their specific yoga clothes, the fit is hit or miss, but they are still my favorite :) 


Back when I was in teacher training I learned that “the pose you like the least is the one you need to work on the most.” At the time my least-liked pose was Camel. I had very little flexibility in my upper back, a mild scoliosis that I wasn’t aware of yet and an aversion towards uncomfortable, nausea-inducing backbends!

But I worked on it like I was told I should. Now, not only can I breath in poses like camel and full wheel, but I actually like them!! What is your least favorite pose?

Can yoga be harmful to your joints or your back? I feel like I always have a problem with either one.

Yoga can help or hurt. It really depends on how you’re practicing, what you’re doing and if you’re listening to your body. Forget about what the poses should look like and find the way they fit in your body today, keep your abs engaged so you don’t dump into your back and make sure your joints are stacked. It might help you to sign up for a private lesson to have an instructor work with your body and alignment.

I'm a beginner to the yoga world. I was wondering if maybe you or some of your followers could suggest what kind of mat and/or other equipment I should buy to begin.

Considering that I don’t have any fancy mats maybe one of you yogis might have a recommendation? Include some details about why you like it as well. That always helps ;)


Yogini warriors, pay attention ;)

Top 3 experiences after a roadtrip:

  • long hot shower 
  • first sleep in the Tempur Pedic
  • first yoga practice

Vacation was wonderful, but it feels nice to get back into my routine. Teaching, working out and assembling wedding invites today

life is grand 

I miss the lake already. We’ve almost completed our roadtrip home and I’m itching to unpack the car, take a hot shower and practice some much needed Hatha yoga.

The trip was such a blast: seeing all of my future family, attending a fun family wedding, running our own wedding errands, playing cards & spending time with my fiancé by the lake (+35 hours in a car!) all in all, we’re super excited to come back in August to get married and share this beautiful place with all of our friends and family back in MN,

Pinochle at the lake. I’ve acquired the name “Lucky” and I like it :) Cards are like yoga for the mind, and the people here are limber!! How many of you play pinochle, cribbage, rummy, solitaire, war etc? #flatheadlake #pinochle #lucky


David Steindl-Rast: Want to be happy? Be grateful | TED 

The one thing all humans have in common is that each of us wants to be happy, says Brother David Steindl-Rast, a monk and interfaith scholar. And happiness, he suggests, is born from gratitude. An inspiring lesson in slowing down, looking where you’re going, and above all, being grateful.

You can ask the universe for all the signs you want, but ultimately, we see what we want to see when we’re ready to see it.

This is the part of wedding planning where the fiancé gets involved. You’re looking at the tastiest gluten free German chocolate, carrot and white cake in all of Montana. After swapping the strawberries for huckleberries these will be our wedding cakes! #sweetnotions #weddingplanning #nomnomnom


Very cool - X-ray video of a person holding and flowing yoga poses. I love seeing joints stack and imagining all the intricate muscles, ligaments and fascia that help support those poses. Our bodies are amazing.
