I am constantly on the go. Between teaching yoga, running my own business, and wrangling a gaggle of animals on a daily basis, I need to make sure that I keep my body fueled and ready to tackle anything. For me, this starts with breakfast. While my morning routine changes depending on what I am getting up to that day, a few things stay constant: I always start my day by chugging a glass of water while the kettle heats up, I follow that by sipping hot water with half a lemon, I take my vitamins, ...

I’m a summer baby- I love the heat, the sunshine, the short shorts, and the summer produce, but here in Denver summer has been BRUTAL this year.

I’m going to just come out and say it- headaches are the worst. I come from a family with incredibly high pain tolerances when it comes to physical maladies; break a bone? Wrap it up and finish the game, tear a muscle (four in my case) don’t realize and try to walk on it (if you were wondering, that did *not* go well- I promptly fell back down!) but a headache?! I turn into the biggest baby on the planet. Pain that you can’t add pressure to to make it feel better is not my favorite thing in the ... Read More about DIY: Headache Relief Bath Soak
One of the most used captions on my Instagram feed is ‘Oh, Colorado, I love you.’ And it is so true- as a transplant from New England moving out to Colorado it was a culture shock in the best way. I loved the sudden access to the Rockies and I loved how focused Coloradans were on being healthy and active. Five years later I have gone full Coloradan (well, maybe not *full* Coloradan- I still appreciate my Oxford commas!) and have immersed myself into the work hard, play hard culture ...
