Let me just say, I love the life I live.
I help people feel better in their bodies by showing them how to stretch, breathe, and move properly.
Not just women – men, seniors, teens, crossfitters & veterans (yoga & movement don’t discriminate!)
I get to teach the hidden gem of Eating Psychology to my clients, besties, family, and not so strange ‘strangers’ from all over the world! I have time to plan and prepare my food so I’m not stressed out about what I’m going to eat next. I practice mindful eating, enjoying every bite that is put into my mouth.
My passion for movement is shared with all local clients at my studio through Strength, Stretch, Pilates, and Yoga classes (In the Denver Metro? Sign-up for class!) For everyone else around the world I love posting free yoga videos on my YouTube Channel and Facebook Live!
I have the positive kind of stress in my life. I’m not financially burdened. I get to do what I love to do, and my work schedule has never been so flexible. I finally found the secret sauce of Lifestyle Design!
I’m so grateful to live in the beautiful state of Colorado, while only a short drive away from my home in Kansas. All of this wouldn’t be possible without my husband, David. He’s my biggest motivation to live life to the fullest, and to be the best I can be.
BUT my life was not always this way…
I struggled with binge eating, overexercising, and negative body image throughout my young college and professional years. I was a collegiate track & field athlete, and for the first time in my life I had lost my competitive edge. This seriously messed with my ego, and stripped me of my self-worth. It was hard to no longer be the best. So naturally, I found a coping mechanisms to soothe the hardships, but unforuntately what I was doing was making everything even worse.
Not only that but I was living the college lifestyle – staying up late, eating terrible, drinking too much, and feeling stressed about school and athletics. The downward spiral continued even after I transferred schools, stopped competitive athletics, and studied abroad. I thought that after I graduated that it would disappear, like it was a college phase or something, but my first corporate management job made my misery even more intense. Coupling shift work, warehouse environment, little sun, 15 hour work days, weird eating patterns, relationship tension, and no time for cooking or meals – looking back it is no wonder I was feeling lost.
So finally I hit my breaking point – I quit my job, and started doing yoga everyday. This is when I began to feel a shift physically, emotionally, and spiritually. I took a leap of faith and signed up for yoga teacher training at Yoga Garden San Francisco.
The evolution continued as I sough after certifications in Eating Psychology and Lifestyle Design Coaching. I kept searching for the information and wisdom that I needed to heal, and began to manifest the lifestyle I truly desired.
If you can relate to my story, I invite you to join the hungryoga community and see what it has to offer!
