Just taking a quick sec to let you guys know that Athleta is having their semi-annual sale. You may remember my review of Athleta - I absolutely love their clothing. It's fantastic quality (better than Lululemon, in my opinion), and they have an incredible return policy. Their "give it a workout" policy let's you, well, give it a workout, and if you don't love your purchase for whatever reason they'll let you return it. How nice is it to have a company stand behind their gear like that?! Here are some of the things I'm loving:

Hey hey hey! We're back with another week of the Creative Yoga Sequencing Project where we're stringing together a series of poses in any old way that makes sense to us and sharing them on instagram.

You'll probably feel tired after the practice, but eventually it'll make you strong!Read More

On the Yoga Forum for more yoga chat with likeminded people. It's a great little supportive corner of the internet, and I'd love to chat with you there!
Personally, I find improving flexibility one of the toughest things to do because it takes a lot of time and patience - two things that the majority of us don't have (#amiright?!). I really haven't found any way around that (sorry!), but using props like yoga blocks is definitely a way to work on your flexibility if you feel like you've hit a plateau.Read More
For me, learning how to do crow pose was a pivotal moment in my personal yoga practice. All of the sudden, I felt like my practice had new dimensions and could go to new (literal) heights. It became less linear and the pose opened a door to something totally new. So when I teach the pose in class, I'm not surprised at the excitement I see in students.Read More
