What a day, what a day... Warrior Love All Around!

The Bad Ash Tour continued today at Heading Om in Peoria, IL. Many thanks to the incredible people that came, participated & shared energy for the Warrior Workshop, Asana, & Getting Comfortable Upside down & on Your Hands Workshop.  Thank you to Tammy Mitchell at Heading Om for sharing her space with me, and welcoming me with open arms.  Much gratitude happening, when thinking about how fun this day was.  Next weekend, I'm in Farmington, IL for my last workshop before I Ieave for Bali.  Love darlings, have a great weekend!

Songwriter's Marketplace Podcast, featuring Bad Ash!

Once upon a time, I was a radio personality, very heavily involved with local music & helping different bands "get out there". Songwriter, musician, & entrepreneur Ken Lehnig (latest album The American Music Show) is a colleague & has become a friend over the years. Recently, Ken invited me onto his podcast for Songwriter's Marketplace to talk music business & what bands can do to stay relevant in this day & age.  It was a great chat, and gets me amped to be able to talk about one of my favorite things... music. :) Here's another interview I did with the web-site back in the day. 

Landed in Central IL... two weeks in Canton before Bali!

It was a busy weekend in Illinois on the Bad Ash Yoga Tour... Thank you to Chuck & BE Yoga in Decatur for having myself & fellow instructor Jolene Wright for our ALIGN with BALANCE workshop on Friday evening... just a little taste of BALANCE Yoga Retreat Costa Rica.

Saturday morning was round 2 for Yoga & the Voice in Bloomington, IL at Tonya Keach Yoga & Wellness.  What an incredible class!  I honestly love all of my classes, but Saturday morning's energy was beyond words.  Such an amazing group of students, powerful space & stellar vibe.  Thank you for having me Tonya!

Now I'm back in my hometown of Canton, IL & I'm teaching classes Monday through Friday for the next two weeks downtown on the square.  They are donation based classes, so pay what you can, all levels & all bodies welcome. :) 

Workshop in Ohio! - "What is Yoga?" Intro to Yoga Basics & Philosophy

Thank you to the nine lovely souls that came to our workshop today! What an incredible day full of yoga exploration, immersion, and shared knowledge... Feeling blessed, grateful & blissed out! 😉 🙏🏼

Well done and a huge THANK YOU to Carolyn Zanarini for orchestrating the workshop outside of Toledo, Ohio, and co-hosting with such poise and ease. Special thanks to Wendy for helping us with finding a location to hold the workshop.  Congratulations to Carolyn as well on starting a new job! This will be limiting her classes, but she is still available for private lessons in the area & will be subbing at various locations in the Toledo, Perrysburg & Sylvania area. If you would like to sign-up for her e-mail list message her at .

Carolyn and I met at our 200 HR yoga teacher training with School Yoga Institute in Fiji.  It was special to be reunited in person and able to have such an inspirational event.  The combination of the group brought terrific energy and enthusiastic conversation, I had such a blast! I look forward to the next time I can come to the area. 

My next stop is Indianapolis on the Bad Ash Yoga Tour... Join me or share with your friends that are in the area... or any area for that matter! ;) Much love for it, ciao for now!


Hello Richmond! ... Good bye Hair?

I've been playing with the idea of cutting my hair for a while now... and today was the day. After a week of my hair being a pain in my ass while surfing, and also taking into consideration my next few months of extensive travel... a little less hair would do a girl some good. There were plenty of people advising against this small little change... that it made me want to do it even more.  And of course... if you have long beautiful hair, if you decide to chop it, then you should give it away. Se la vie 10 inches & hello fresh, curly and light. Here ya go Locks of Love :) 

Why does cutting one's hair make you feel renewed in a way?  It doesn't really matter if I know the answer, because I'm liking the feel and the look! Thanks to Ruth at Images on Main Street for taking me right when I walked in the door, loving my new locks! Also, a huge THANK YOU to my friend Sara who understood upon my arrival at her house in Richmond that I was serious about needing to cut my hair immediately!


Before Mermaid Hair... 


And there it goes... 


Thank you Ruth & Images Main Street studio in Richmond!
