As a yoga instructor, runner, swimmer, climber, former triathlon-doing-yogi…I am passionate about the importance of staying active. I can’t remember a time when I didn’t feel good after getting my body moving, and not just because I burn loads of calories doing it. For me it’s the mental game that keeps me dedicated to fitness on a daily basis.

Yoga is so much more than just stretching and saying “Ohmmmm”, contrary to popular belief. It can be incredibly challenging on the muscles and lungs as well as the mind and spirit. Today, there are so many ways to do yoga that are fun and accessible. Classes are usually around from 45-90 minutes and are taught at all levels, ranges, and temperatures.
