Hometown: Lakewood, CA Childhood aspiration: I knew from a young age I wanted to do hair & makeup. It was either that or a Jazz singer in a smoky basement bar haha When and where was your first yoga class: I believe it s was 2007, here at Yoga Tribe. A friend drug me to a 5:30am 90 min class. I'm NOT a morning person!! I told her I'd go 5 days in a row with her. Each day I felt so great after. I was going regularly for a few years. Took a year off to see what else was out there. Nothing compared & I came back full force. I did teacher training a yea ..

WHEN DID YOU START YOGA AND WHERE? My first class was at a Bikram studio in 2005. I had never practiced yoga before. I didn't last. My second class was a few days later at what was then Huntington Beach Hot Yoga. It was taught by Jason Wilkerson. I lasted that time, and I was hooked. Twelve years later, after many moves, many changes, and many different studios, here I am again. I cannot begin to express how grateful I am for this tribe. HOW OFTEN DO YOU PRACTICE YOGA? Before I had my daughter two years ago, I couldn't miss a day of practice (and often, I'd doubl ..

It’s got to be the most recognised of all yoga poses, right? Adho Mukha Svanasana, or Downward-Facing Dog appears in most styles of yoga as either a strengthening pose, a transition pose, or a resting pose. Getting the alignment right is not only important for your anatomy, it also helps you truly love this pose. I really do understand those of you who have an aversion to the inverted V. Honestly, this pose was my nemesis when I first started practicing yoga. I’d groan internally whenever the teacher asked us to “rest” in Downward Dog, because  ..

These gorgeous ice pops get their color from the combination of strawberries and beets. The strawberry flavor is definitely what you’ll taste most, though this is a great way to introduce your kids to beets. Look for frozen beets or refrigerated cooked beets for even simpler prep! Ingredients: 1 1/2 cups strawberries (fresh or frozen) 1/2 cup beets (cooked and cooled) 3/4 cup apple juice 1 tsp lemon juice or balsamic vinegar (trust me!) Directions: In a blender (preferably a high-speed blender), puree all ingredients until completely smooth.  ..

WHEN DID YOU START YOGA AND WHERE? My 1st yoga class was at Pasadena City College 39 years ago. Since then I've sporadically taken classes through the years. Until last year when I attended a 225 hr yoga instructor class and received my certification from the Holy Yoga (HY) school that promotes Christ centered practice. This June I will complete the HY 9 month Master's Course. HOW OFTEN DO YOU PRACTICE YOGA? Currently, I practice 5 days a week at the Yoga Tribe Studio. Their instructors are stellar, the environment is clean and orderly. The variety of yoga opti ..

Beginning students are just as likely to feel the joy that comes from yoga as are their more experienced comrades. But beginners also face a pesky collection of obstacles. For one thing, the vocabulary of yoga can be difficult. Despite its beauty, Sanskrit has a tendency to make Western eyes glaze over (read the words pashchimottanasana and paravairagya quickly and see if it still happens to you). Another problem is that even relatively common practices may require more than a casual explanation (“You want me to pass salt water from one nostril to the other?”). Final ..
