I’ve been teaching non-stop since we returned from Nepal so finally here is a quick glimpse of our trip. The full documentary hasn’t been released yet, but here is some GoPro footage from the trek. The video really can’t do it justice. We were immersed in the most spectacular views I’ve ever seen. It was one of the most amazing experiences I’ve ever had, and look forward to returning again.
I’ve been saying for awhile now that I will be teaching more classes. Well guess what!?! When I return in November the new CorePower Yoga Foothills Studio is finally opening and you will have plenty of opportunities to come practice with me. I am so excited to be joining the CorePower team and hope to see you all in the studio.

I apologize for having been a little m.i.a. recently. Life happens, we get busy, it happens to the best of us. However, I have lots of exciting updates as a result… :)
The last year has brought about a lot of changes that ultimately have lead me to this really big one… Moving to Salt Lake City. I’ve grown up for the most part in Florida and after a few years in North Carolina, found myself back in FL again last year. I’ve always known that I didn’t want to stay there, even in grade school, but somehow kept ending up there. College because of scholarships, then I started skydiving and FL had ideal year round conditions, then there was a guy, the list goes on… And the whole time in the back of my mind I knew I wanted to see and do more. Experience more of what this amazing planet has to offer.
I love to eat. And if you’ve spent any time around me you’ve probably noticed that I enjoy documenting yummy eats. So here are some of the delicious highlights of my trip to England (you may notice a trend :P). Being the cold, wet, and dreary place that it often is, it’s no surprise that most of the cuisine here is very hearty meat and potatoes sort of fare. We passed on the meat, but I did have to try an authentic fish and chips while we were on the south coast.
A trip to England wouldn’t be complete without a visit to London. Jonathan and I took the train to Paddington Station and spent a couple days seeing the sights. We did the typical – Big Ben, London Eye, Buckingham Palace, Harrods, Camden Market, etc. I’ve been wanting to see Wicked for years and lucky for us we were able to get tickets.
The last stop of the cruise was Kauai. And luckily for us, my friend Tristen lives there and gave us a super special tour of all her favorite spots. Kauai is one of the most beautiful and lush places I’ve ever been. And having our very own guide to take us to all the secret locales and show us around was such a wonderful treat! I even got to try stand up paddle boarding for the first time. :)
The next morning we woke up in Hilo. My dad being the geophysicist extraordinaire that he is took us to Volcanoes National Park. Kilauea is still smoking, a rather eerie sight if you think of the potential destruction when/if she blows again. Jon got to walk through his first lava tube, a massive underground tunnel essentially that once had molten lava rushing through it. We drove through the lava fields leftover from her eruptions in the 70s winding all the way down to the southernmost tip of the island where lava continues to trickle into the ocean. The ground is a wide expanse of black hardened lava, an almost desolate feel compared to the majority of lush foliage and greenery around the rest of the island.
Last month Jon and I went to visit my family in Hawaii. At the last minute we ended up going on a cruise around the islands. First up was Maui. We docked in Kahului and rented a car so we could explore. We didn’t have much free time the first day, but managed to end it with a gorgeous sunset at Lahaina.
I got to tag-along and help Jon with a shoot at Radar Lake outside of Seattle. It’s one of the most beautiful and serene places I’ve ever been. Here are some pics I snapped with my phone, although it really doesn’t do it justice.
