Why Retreating to the Middle of Nowhere is Good for You

July 4, 2018

I recently visited Toledo, WA, smack dab in the middle of nowhere, for the OmTara Resonance Restival where I taught Trap Vinyasa™. A grassroots wellness festival tucked away at lush Camp Singing Wind, this place offered the perfect weekend retreat! Although ‘roughing it’ isn’t new to me, I was concerned as to how the liberal aka hippie festival attendees would vibe with my gritty trap style. Upon arrival my nerves increased…

Trap Vinyasa is the New Yoga

February 28, 2018

Fall Yogi Style

February 28, 2018

I scored it several years ago at an antique mall in Wenatchee with my mama. I can tell it’s hand-knit by the tightness of the weave and I’d guess it’s from…
