I confess. I was a slob until my late 20s. Not a dirty, stinky slob, but I didn’t mind extraneous stuff laying all around, my bed unmade for weeks, and dishes piled in the sink and dishwasher for more than a day.

When I was 27, I stumbled into my first yoga-posture class and slowly I turned into someone who liked my environment neat and organized. Some might call it a coincidence, but it’s not. If you’ve been practicing postures for a while, you’re probably figuring out there’s not only a physical realignment that happens, but an energetic one too.

The need or urgency branches out seeking purchase into every area of your life.

And you know what’s super-cool about that? There’s actually a form of yoga for it.


Random Fun Facts

I’m born and raised in Texas. Between my Southern roots and yoga background, I have a pretty laid-back approach to life (most of the time).

I love unsweet iced tea and it’s rare to see me without it. And that’s about the only thing unsweet I like.

Until 2011, yoga was my number one passion and writing my second, then a certain blond-haired, blue-eyed baby boy took the number one spot.

I like ellipses (those three little dots you see everywhere, not the exercise machine) and parentheses.

I believe yoga is more than black pants, green smoothies and pretzel poses, and might be the original coaching program.

I’ve been called the girl-next-door and down-to-earth. I’ve never been super-bendy and I love cheeseburgers, chocolate chip cookies and coke.

I’m a walking billboard for “if I can do it, so can you.”
