Happy day after Thanksgiving! I hope you are all feeling stuffed with love and gratefulness. This is absolutely my most favorite time of year. I am a total sucker for everything holiday. And yes, that totally includes crazy holiday treats, meals and drinks. And lights, and decorations and yes my Christmas tree went up before Thanksgiving this year! (Thanks BMW!) But most of all this season, I am trying to take little time keep up with my workouts, be more purposeful about what I put in my body and give myself a little time to meditate, pray and be intentional with my days.
Since it’s Fit Friday I thought giving us all a little reminder about the wonderful benefits of yoga would be helpful during this stressful (and fun too!) holiday season. A big thanks to my friend Jessica Fajans for being our Fit Friday this month! She teaches at CorePower Yoga here in Austin and we’ll dive into all her favorite things!
PS- major shoutout to my friend Jessica Johnson for providing all the gorgeous photography today! Check out her work @jessijoh if you’re looking for a photographer in Austin.
For this month’s edition of Fit Fridays, I am lucky enough to feature my friend Bryan Gonzalez! He works in food, just like me, and also teaches spin at LOVE Cycling Studio! So he’s the perfect workout, foodie guru that totally gets that boozy life balance we are all trying to achieve. Plus, he’s got two adorable pooches and I know you all love dogs as much as me.
I got the chance to check out Bryan’s class on Sunday morning with a few of my friends. Lucky for us it was a Selena v. Selena ride! #obsessed It was pure greatness and the best way to get my day started! Can’t wait for my next class! Now, I’m kicking it over to Bryan!
It’s time for Fit Fridays again! After a long (but somehow so short!) summer of traveling, I thought what better for Fit Friday than my beach loving, urban yogi, traveling wanderluster to teach us a couple of moves you can use anytime, any place! Jennifer Pierce is my lovely friend who happened to take umm the coolest sabbatical last year and became yoga certified in Thailand. Her colorful Instagram feed will have you booking a beach vacation in no time!
JP as she’s known to a lot of our friends is simply pure joy! It just sparkles out of her. She is simply a joy to be around. And lucky for you, she’s sharing her favorite yoga moves, how to create a great space for yoga anywhere, best post-workout bites and sips with us today plus an awesome playlist!
