10 Minute Detox Flow

Lots of twists and turns in my 10 minute detox flow- a perfect sequence to do this weekend!

In January, most of us have made a resolution that involves getting healthier- a new diet plan, a new workout, to take the stairs more- etc. For the last two years I’ve kicked off my YMCA class full of twists and rotations. I call it my a detox flow. 

Benefits of twists and rotations in yoga:
  • Improves circulation
  • Helps with digestion
  • Calming nervous system
  • De-stress
  • Help ease back pain

I forgot I took a photo of this pose and then cut it out of my video. WHOOPS! Super easy bonus move for you!
Seated spinal twist! Sit up tall then bring right hand across left knee- keeping chest lifted; take deep breaths. Come back to center and then twist to the other side.

How cute are they? The little’s and I made a banner to hang up too. Add some apple cider mules and we are all set! I knew my day was going to be packed […]

Yoga Flow: Core Power

A thirty minute yoga flow that focuses all on that core power! Read on to get the full sequence! I’ve casually dropped here or there that I am now teaching a yoga class at my local YMCA twice a week. I am having so much fun leading my small class through vinyasa style flows. I want to start designing and sharing some yoga for you all too since most of my readers are not local! Funny thing, I gave my first try at recording a flow. Babes, it was terrible! The angle was off and my voice did not carry. […]

5 Reasons I love the YMCA

After a few free guest passes and one Group Power class my family joined our local YMCA this past summer. The heart of the Y is community and today I have five reasons I love the our local YMCA! As I started to write this post, I realized I probably have more than five reasons I love the YMCA. My top five all stem around a core pillar of any local YMCA- community.  Community is exactly what you feel when you walk through the front doors and walk down the hallways. You feel it when you’re in class or on […]

Body Loop Sculpt

Resistance loops are fabulous workout equipment to purchase- they are light, not expensive and give a killer sculpting workout!  In Body Loop Sculpt you will work arms, core and lower body. I frequently pack resistance loops when I travel because they are so light! The workout I’m sharing today I did in my hotel room when I was in Germany this past spring. Complete 10 reps of each exercise (on each side when applicable) and repeat each Block before moving onto the next! BLOCK 1: Tricep Dips Chest Fly Standing Side Bend Single Leg Glute Bridge BLOCK 2: Pushups Bent […]
