Listen -- I’m not your traditional yogi: I’m the carnivorous, red wine and French cheese-loving type and I teach vinyasa flow. My aim is to keep my classes fun and accessible, both in the studio and online. You won’t hear much Sanskrit, I totally forgive you if you don’t know your asana from your elbow, and I firmly believe that yoga is for everyone, from the kale-loving vegan to the prize-winning deer hunter. I may be a Bad Yogi, but if I’m being totally honest, teaching yoga has been one of my greatest pleasures; I practice to feed my teaching, but I teach to feed my life. Get your yoga on with me where ever and whenever you like with my online classes on MyYogaPro.

If you haven't been asleep for all of 2012, you've probably heard the praises of foam rolling. I'm not one to jump on trends for the trend's sake, but this is no joke! Foam rolling helps to create and maintain long, smooth muscles by massaging out the knots and releasing...

Yoga's Dark Side

There's a giant pink elephant on the yoga mat, and I'm just gonna come out and say it. How come when I go to any new-to-me yoga studio, or hang out with a group of "yoga people," I feel more judged there than anywhere else? At least half the time...
