Workout: I spin 11 hours per week because I’m a spin instructor. I also follow a weight training program 3-4 times per week. In the summer you can also find me surfing as much as possible. You can find my program BeachFIT on my website. It’s a 90 day program designed to get you a beach body!!!
Diet: I eat organic all natural foods 90% of the time. I eat well sourced meats, and organic vegetable. I try to stay away from processed foods, sugar, starches and most dairy and grains. Don’t get me wrong. I am all about balance, I love my tequila and chocolate as well. My favorite cheat meal is pizza and spaghetti.

Pattabhi Jois.
Workout: Acroyoga is the practice of trust and connection. The work done on my yoga mat in my personal practice which prepares me for my work in the world. It brings me deeper into a sacred space of solitude, while lifting my eyes up and out towards a universe that I feel very connected to. When working in a partnership–your eyes are met by ONE person and that person will serve as your mirror. A mirror to your potential, your power and your strength. As well as a mirror to your communication skills, your ability to listen, and your patterns.. Meaning– the stuff we are working through on our mats, gets amplified in partner work, and it does not come in short poetic dharma talks. It comes in the form of a living human being, offering their hands and feet to support you and you’ve just gotta TRUST and GO! One learns quickly that pointing fingers won’t get you anywhere.
Diet: I eat clean and local foods with an emphasis on as little “packaged foods” as possible. I take great pride in looking a farmer in the eye and paying them directly for their hard work. Truly, nothing gives me more pleasure and nothing comes close to the taste of a freshly picked cherry tomato in the summer or a raspberry straight from the source. I am a traveling yogi and acrobat, so most of my life is on the road and I supplement with granola bars and fruit in areas where I cannot find an organic grocer. I do not adhere to a single diet or regime, but work on staying balanced. Ginger is by far my secret weapon to ward off illness while on the road. It is the real deal and my body can handle A LOT of it.
