"Yoga came to me in early adulthood when my life was full of wrongs, imbalance, excess and disconnection. Through the grace of countless teachers and dedicated practice I have come to find all aspects of this practice to help me see my innate goodness and to challenge who I am beyond my self-conceived bounds. Each time I come to my mat or the cushion I find an opportunity to remember and reunite with the qualities I need to amplify in order to more skillfully ride the waves of my life. These include but are never limited to; patience, perseverance, surrender, kindness, curiosity and finding joy in the rise and fall of life.
With over a decade of diverse practice and study and a degree in Exercise Physiology I...Read More
Many people have approached me since the recent Vail Daily article regarding our Live It Group Training program. https://www.vaildaily.com/entertainment/get-out-of-your-fitness-rut/ Most of these inquiries are regarding whether this program will lead to the physical and mental changes they seek. It led me to write this article about the productive process people go through to elicit a positive change. This process can be useful across many facets of your life, but for the purpose of this article I will keep it only to the scope of health and fitness.
FACTOR IN THE COST/BENEFITS OF NOT CHANGING
When we first think about making a positive change we contemplate the cost/benefit of making that change. How much time will I need to exercise? What is the expense of a gym membership or training program? Will this take time away from my family or business? These are all good costs to think about prior to beginning your program. But the risk/reward step most people do not consider is:...Read More
Several years ago I read a quote that has stayed with me …."Most people have no idea how good their body can feel,” and the last few months have solidified this belief. I was living back in my home town for five months and while I saw things are slowly shifting for the better, I missed what I had here in Colorado. I quickly came to realize that Vail is home and will always have my heart. It was time to head back and I couldn’t get here fast enough. I love Vail for many reasons, but the number one being the all-encompassing healthy lifestyle.
As a Colorado girl hailing from the mid-west where deteriorating health, poor diet, sedentary lifestyle, is the norm, I was enlightened to a lifestyle so opposite the first time I visited Colorado. Health and fitness are a way of life. I wanted to live the Vail lifestyle. This eventually prompted me to make the move.
In Vail, I have found a great community that constantly strives to be better than they were yesterday. Everyone is out living...Read More

Step 1 – Change Your Mindset

ARE YOU READY TO UNDERTAKE A TRANSFORMATION?
When transformation comes knocking on your door, it unapologetically asks you to let go of parts of yourself and your life that are no longer of service in order move toward that which is. Sometimes, the welcoming of the new is right there to greet you. The key is to have the awareness to recognize it and the courage to take the actions for positive change.
Monumental life transformations don’t happen all that often, but they are the primary shapers of our lives. After reflecting upon my own experiences and those of my clients, I’ve been able to parse many of the signs indicating when we are in the space to commit to a positive transformation. Awareness is like a road map of understanding that can help you feel more positive while facing transition. May this road map serve as a support net for you, when you are ready to step over to the other side.
