The Right Stuff

I've climbed some of the biggest mountains around the world, from Alaska to the Alps to North India. Along the way I tested gear for Black Diamond, and learned early on that I had a small obsession for discovering the right approach, and the right tools, for every situation. This is a worthy challenge in mountaineering because the conditions are so variable, changing from day to day, and within each day as sun, wind, and precipitation constantly reshape your world. Today I have enough gear to outfit a small expedition, thanks in part to an especially adept climbing expert named…

Mommy Talk: Lessons from Baby Daisy

Hi Friends, I hope you all are well. I've written this particular note to you in my mind several times, and scrapped each draft in quest for a more useful, honest, and non judgmental message. I was certain (5 weeks ago) the topics I'm about to dive into could be covered in a simple "5 Lessons Learned" neatly-tied-up-type note. However, OMG I underestimated the profound nature and complexity of the iceberg I will humbly attempt to explore.

What You Need to Know About Practicing Yoga When You’re Pregnant

Yoga, at its best, has the wonderful capacity to heal, connect you back to your intuition and awareness, build balanced strength and mobility in your body, and energize your whole self. The secret is simple: The magic isn't locked in the poses. It's in you. How we practice, and how we treat ourselves while we practice, makes all the difference on the effects and benefits we receive. Of course, before doing anything, it's always a good idea to ask your doctor about these things. It's helpful to speak with a qualified professional who knows your own personal case history. If…

It Wasn’t Easy to Get Pregnant Until I Tried This. . .

Hi Friends, (originally sent out in the newsletter 8-24-16. make sure to get on the list for the latest updates.) Thank you for all the positivity and excitement and sweet words for our baby girl on the way. We're thrilled and pumped up, when I'm awake that is. Growing humans sure takes the mojo right out of you. But hey, that's ok. So, I wanted to share a bit of my lessons learned up until now, and happy to share my mistakes and trip-ups, so maybe you can save yourself some stress and time no matter what you're going through in your life. We…

Getting More Out of Your Yoga

Yoga can be easy and soft and at the same time challenging and intense, and that's fantastic. We want a practice that we can progress with, grow into, and continue with every stage of our life. What we don't want is to bring more tension and stress into our practice than we need. There are ways to collect more stress while going through your yoga that end up frustrating and no fun. There are also better ways to drop the stress and tension while practicing, allowing you to accomplish more as you progress and feel great during the process. One…
