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.

15 hours in, 1 more to go. Snow, horses, cattle, mountains and country music. I can’t wait to get to Lakeside and relax with my in laws, practice some much needed yoga, and get ready for my fiancé’s cousin’s wedding tonight. :)!!!

Hi Sarah Beth, I have a quick question about levels of yoga. I am going to a workshop with my yogini mum in a few months and I have signed up to a class which says for intermediate and advanced yoga practitioners. I am beginning to panic. I have been practicing for over 4 years but I'm no way into the tying myself in knots or floating in handstands.... What is 'intermediate'?? Namaste and love, Ruth in Scotland

Hey Ruth! Since you’ve been practicing for a couple of years, you’re no beginner. I think this intermediate/advanced class will be so great for you! You might find some challenges but let them make you stronger. this will be a great learning experience and I think it will boost your practice! You’re exactly where you need to be :)


Screenshot from my latest video “Yoga to Lengthen & Strengthen the Lower Body.” This video specifically targets the hip flexors and hamstrings. Try pairing it with the Gentle Hip Opening video for a total hip transformation. (Link on my profile page) if you liked it, share it! #yoga #yogavideo #yogaroutine #flexibility #stretch

Roadtrip ahead!

Today my fiance and I are driving to Montana to attend a family wedding and meet up with our own wedding vendors. You know I’ll be doing discreet yoga at all of the gas stops along the way ;) 

Please share/like my newest video if indeed you did like it, and I can come home to all sorts of comments and messages to respond too! I’ll most likely instagram throughout the trip, but then again I might just take a weekend away from electronics and focus on my pinochle game instead.

Have a wonderful weekend yogis! 


Yoga Routine to Lengthen & Strengthen the Lower Body (16 minutes) 

Try this complete sequence to improve your lower body flexibility and stability. Great for back health too!

This was designed to target the hip flexors and hamstrings, which are stubborn and tense areas in the body so take it easy. You’ll get much more out of this by practicing it with modifications a couple times a week, than trying to bulldoze through it just once. Enjoy :)
