Yoga To Me Is…

My first official assignment for yoga teacher training at CorePower Yoga was to write an essay defining yoga, what yoga is to me and talk about why I practice. We were specifically instructed not to base our essay on Webster’s definition of yoga. Just incase you’re wondering what that is, yoga is defined in the […] Read more…

Yin Yoga With Jordan

I was so excited when I found out Jordan was teaching the 10am Yin Yoga class this morning at Bikram Yoga Everett. I met Jordan in the first Bikram Yoga class I ever took at Bikram Yoga Everett back in December. She was the photographer for the class during the studio’s holiday party. I recently […] Read more…

It’s Okay To Unplug For Yoga

I’ve practiced at quite a few yoga studios where there’s a sign posted on the door to the studio that blatantly reads, “No Cell Phones Or Conversations Allowed in The Yoga Room” and rightfully so. The yoga studio should be considered a sacred place. Even though this may not be a place of worship for […] Read more…

Balanced My Chakras in Yoga Tonight

Tonight’s 5:30 Hot Power Fusion By Candlelight class with Jill was a special HPF class. In addition to practicing the HPF sequence by candlelight, we also did some chakra balancing. I didn’t know much about chakras, let alone had ever done anything with them in a yoga class before so I really wanted to check […] Read more…

Can We Talk About Hands-On Assists?

Tonight’s Hot Power Fusion class was at the Ballard studio with Jessica. One of my favorite things to do on a cold and rainy night is to practice yoga in a hot room. On my way into class, it was pouring out so I was really looking forward to being in the heated studio. Before the start of class, […] Read more…

My Best Hot Power Fusion Class Yet

Tonight was my best Hot Power Fusion class yet. First of all, I snagged a sweet spot in class. I walked into the studio and set up my mat in the front row, in the right hand corner. I didn’t even consider setting up in the back row. Class tonight wasn’t super crowded either so […] Read more…

How I Fell In Love With Yin Yoga

Up until two weeks ago, I had never taken a Yin Yoga class before. I didn’t even know what Yin Yoga was. I’ve been living in a Bikram Yoga bubble for the last six years and had only recently gotten out of my shell by exploring hot yoga with Hot Power Fusion classes at CorePower […] Read more…

Confession Time With Bona at Bikram Yoga

Bona teaches the 8am Bikram Yoga class on Saturday morning at Bikram Yoga Everett. I always look forward to her class because she’s hilarious and her classes are always a lot of fun. Her commentary during the postures makes the 90 minutes seem to breeze by. This morning, I walked into the studio and saw […] Read more…

Finally Got My Flow On

New studio, familiar face. Even though I’ve been going to classes at the Ballard studio all week, tonight I decided to pop into the Greenwood CorePower Yoga studio to take the Hot Power Fusion By Candlelight class with Jill. I loved seeing Jill’s familiar face at the front desk. I also loved how the Greenwood […] Read more…
