I just had the most amazing yoga practice after an intense upper body workout. I’m getting stronger and so much more flexible it’s insane! I credit most of that to my workout-yoga fusion. With the help of my trainer friend I’m lifting 4x/week (2 days upper body with free weights + 2 days lower body lifting heavy using machines and barbells) and yoga everyday (home practice or class) I feel so incredible!
But nobody should ever look this good after a decent workout/yoga sesh! This is a #tbt to a shot that the awesome @mcduffphoto took of myself with the help of @muanicolefae ❤
What kind of fitness do you pair your yoga practice with?
This video has become so popular on YouTube that I’m considering making a second Bedtime Yoga Routine to upload! If you haven’t tried it yet, check out these comments and hopefully you’ll have a similar experience :)
How silly that I feel so successful when people tell me I put them to sleep. What specifically would you like and not like in a Bedtime Yoga Routine? Message me :)
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?
Vacation was wonderful, but it feels nice to get back into my routine. Teaching, working out and assembling wedding invites today
life is grand
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.
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
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 :)

I can’t wait until we can start hiking again! I’m going to need better shoes though.
Lakeside, MT is such a beautiful place and I’m going back in just a couple days! I might not make it to meditate/yoga on the dock considering it’ll be cold, but I’ll get to visit my lovely future in-laws, attend a wedding, view our own wedding venue and taste-test gluten free wedding cake! Is it Friday yet?! #flatheadlake #lakeside #yoga #meditate #engaged #dock #wedding
I’ve definitely never been on the side of a giant van before!
There was once a time where I only dreamt of being a model, then I did it. There was another time where I only dreamt of being a yoga teacher, then I did it. Same goes for my incredible fiancé, living in Colorado, and being completely healthy in a UC remission - med free! It’s safe to say, I’m living the dream. My dream :)
