Southwestern Veggie Scramble

I figured out in my early 20s that if I don't plan and prepare my meals in advance, I'm probably not going to eat. (Vata anyone?) The only problem with meal prep is the monotony.

That time we howled at the moon

Exactly a month ago, I packed my car with shorts, a swimsuit, 8 meals for 12 adults, and a long-lost friend from my early 20s to co-lead a wellness retreat in the tiny town of Mt. Ida, Arkansas.

Packed with nutrients and protein, here is one of my favorite, quick, easy, and (most importantly) delicious breakfasts: BRAISED KALE [...]

Prop Party: Increasing Flexibility

A few months ago, I noticed a student struggling to interlace his fingers behind his back in a deep stretch class. As most yoga instructors would do, I grabbed a strap and nonchalantly placed it in his hands to make the pose accessible. No brainer, right? Wrong. The student approached me after class, thanking me for [...]

When your dog steals the show.

Let's face it: No matter how brilliant, attractive, funny, or charming you are... If there's a baby or a dog around, they steal the show. No questions asked. Cute wins every time. I should have known better. But I let Mr. Darcy tag along to a Nativ photoshoot a few weeks ago. Not only did he [...]
