this is what I do every day

Uncategorized Jan 31, 2023

Wanna know what my daily rituals are?

Though I'm still capable of one-arm handstands, they are no longer part of my daily practice.

Disclaimer: I realize not everyone is able to dedicate hours to their daily rituals. It's a little easier for me. I have no kids, I live by myself, and yoga is my life—personally, professionally, and academically.

The key is to decide what's right for you.

Even 5 minutes a day—done consistently—can change your life.

I've been developing this daily ritual since 1998 when I became obsessed with health. My wellness journey began 25 years ago (when I weighed 100 pounds more than today).

So here we go, my daily rituals (and yes, Hanna would call this my bootcamp ...but I love it!):



4:15am—cold plunge (bathtub)

4:25am—adrenal cocktail (lemon, fulvic minerals, salt, water)

‍ 4:35am—yoga asana

4:45am—pranayama (breath work) 

4:55am—mantra meditation

What is Bhatki Yoga?

Uncategorized Jan 19, 2023

Bhakti is the yoga of love & service. 

This past year has been a full immersion into the heart-centered practice of bhakti.

To give you a little taste, our friend Ragu shared these 6 pillars of bhakti:

no criticizing

be tolerant of situations / other people

take no offense

see the good in others & let them know it

be quick to apologize

cultivate a daily gratitude practice

Imagine what your life would look like when you live these principles every day. 

Yoga Teacher Training is about becoming the best version of yourself. 

It's about looking within and upgrading your thoughts, your practices, and your peer group. 

Ultimately it's about connecting to your heart and your truth. 

The online RYT-200 Hero's Journey starts soon! 

Get certified from the comfort of your own home, while continuing to work and be with your family.

Are you making this mistake?

Uncategorized Jan 10, 2023

Let me guess...

You freakin' love yoga.

But you think don't have a ton of experience. Yet.

I get it. 

That's exactly how I felt when I was newer. 

And then a friend said I should do yoga teacher training. 

"What? I'm still new! No way I'm ready yet!" 

But I went for it. 

It turned out to be one of the best decisions of my life

Cause here's the deal...

Yoga Teacher Training is about learning to love yourself. And becoming your best self.

It doesn't matter how much experience you have.

It doesn't matter how much experience others have.

It's about your growth.

And the truth is: You Are Ready Now.

Our next 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training starts soon!

There's a reason it's called The Hero's Journey

The future of yoga

Uncategorized Jan 06, 2023

It's been nearly three years since our whole world changed forever. 

Rather than being stuck in the negative, yogis elevate their awareness and train themselves to focus on the positive. 

We have so much appreciation for our loved ones, our health, and our extended family of 600+ yoga teacher graduates.

Since the pandemic, more people are working from home than ever before. 

And guess what?

That includes you! The yoga teachers and the wanna-be yoga teachers.

Some people have the impression that online training is "inferior" to in-person training. 

We've led in-person training around the globe for 10+ years, and can confidently say that's just not the case. 

We have perfected our online RYT-200 Hero's Journey. 

When you choose to train with us, you're getting the best that online learning has to offer. 

 Peers keep you motivated and accountable from day one until we celebrate your graduation,...
