I Am Love.

I sweat kayaking or paddle boarding down the muddy Maumee River. I am SUPYO Instructor & LOVER!  I sweat biking with my kiddos or jogging in the village jamming to Notorious B.I.G.. I sweat if I don't have Kale in my fridge. I am obsessed with MATCHA...its my jam...we are never ever breaking up.  I make sure to sweat everyday and when I am in pain, I usually hide it behind a smile. 

I believe smiling makes you stronger whether it's in a workout or in tough life situations.  I believe it’s important to be brave enough to let go of people or things that don't make you feel AMAZING.  I surround myself with people who make me feel loved and appreciated. I think it’s important to let go of connections in your life that do not serve you. You need to love yourself enough to realize when others don't and that's their loss not yours.

I believe yoga and a solid friend is the medicine for every heartache or catastrophe.
— Kimi Chapman

My very favorite place on earth is my YOGA mat next to my boys on theirs giggling, contorting and breathing.  I love concocting green juices with my Hurom or Vitamix in my kitchen.  I love sharing my mixology with friends and clients! I love writing about health and mental wellness for Elena Brower and on my blog.

I love all things exercise! My biggest fun is taking classes from other great fitness professionals.  It is so rewarding and gratifying for me.  I am most excited about the unknown and living authentically. I am excited to watch my mischevious little lads prosper into loving gentlemen who practice YOGA & live their dreams. I hope to always stay young at heart and try new things (I'll try anything once…okay, three times!) I am excited and blessed to teach my kids LOVE and the meaning of life...which I am still working on every day!

Much like Yoga, life isn't about how many handstands you can do or how many "things" you possess...it's about REAL relationships and spiritual connections. It's about what you do behind the scenes that counts. Integrity.  It's about living your dreams.  Great love in any aspect isn't always convenient.  Passion is vital and without it, everything dies.  I believe in making glorious mistakes and forgiving ourselves and others. 

I am most excited about what's yet to come. I am most excited because my heart is pure and it always leads me to what's whole, good and right (for me) IN THE END. I am most excited to continue to grow and learn how to be of service to others because that is where I believe true happiness exists for me. (The beautiful thing though is that it exists for all if we so choose!)  I am honored to be an alumni ambassador for Lululemon TOLEDO, a former educator at Lululemon Ann Arbor, Solow, AYCY, YOGA AFRICA PROJECT & TRIP TRIBE Ambassador. I am passionate about travel and YOGA RETREATS.  Check out my upcoming trips & workshops to Tulum, San Francisco, Palm Beach, & Good Old DETROIT!

I lead a YOGA RETREAT to Tulum, Mexico every year...mayan clay treatments, Temescal ceremony, Bikini bootcamp, & more. Temescal is a traditional Mayan Sweat Lodge which consists of 4 doors, each one getting progressively hotter as more volcanic rocks are added to the center of the lodge. It is led by a Shaman and takes about 90 minutes from start to finish. 

I am CURIOUS...Love my DR.Lu and cherish the Buddhist clean regimen I am on.  I am learning so much about reflexology, energy, eating clean and living a healthier plant based life.  Learning to take care of my guts is fun and enlightening.  I am not afraid to work on myself...I love it, actually.

You can find me at my home studio, teaching, practicing, laughing., YOGAJA YOGA in Cricket West, Ottawa Hills Elementary Community Classes, TWOS Athletic Club, Amansala, and sometimes in California teaching in "THE BU".  I can be found in the evenings cooking dinner in my kitchen listening to Rod or Ray. I can be found date nights or Girls Nights at HOME, Rose & Thistle, or Mancy's Steakhouse...or any establishment that has karaoke...or in Birmingham at my favorite YOGA studios:) Blu, Citizens, Yoga Shelter, Center for Yoga, and more!

Love watching Karma go full circle...it's a beautiful reckless cycle... Less talking, more doing.  Spend less, make love more.  Stay high on good vibes and take responsibility for your actions...at some point the truth will find you. 

Send Peace. 

Wrap your arms around as many people as you can.

Be the light, follow the light and be present.  Find things that keep a twinkle in your eyes.

I love teaching and traveling.  I love teaching in exotic places and at corporate retreats.

Peace, Love, less judgement & more SMILES.
