Motivation, Running, What I Mean When I Say

“I’m athletic”

Welcome back to another "What I mean when I say..." Today we are looking at a pretty silly topic. What do I mean when I say "I'm athletic"?

Am I Runner?

I Know My Body

Relax, this isn't going to be some highly opinionated, feminist article. It's not my style to write like that. This is not coming from a place of gender. Now that that's out of the way, I know my body. I'm an avid exerciser, I eat super duper well, and I've listened to and worked with my body… Continue reading I Know My Body

Do It Right Now

Nope. Don't wait until you finish lunch. Don't wait until the minute hand gets to the top of the clock or to the next marking on the clock. Don't wait until tomorrow.

When designing and thinking about this flow, I wondered how I could put all of those together to embody the feeling of summer. Today's yoga is a special flow centered on heat.
