I know, I know. Pretty cliché. Girl finds herself in yoga, girl becomes yoga teacher, girl starts testing natural products, what’s next? Well cliché as it may be, removing chemicals from my daily skin care regimen has been a big priority as of late.
I don’t know the numbers or statistics or research behind using your every day antiperspirants, but what I do know is I don’t want 50 different chemicals seeping into my skin, especially near my chest, any longer.
So for the past four months or so I’ve been “experimenting” with natural deodorants. I say “experimenting” because unfortunately they don’t all stave off our natural smell as easily as the chemical ridden ones do. Here is where I’m at so far.

I can’t believe it’s already been one full year since I finished Yoga Teacher Training! It’s been quite the journey so far and sometimes I have to pinch myself that I am actually doing what I love. That’s not to say that teaching hasn’t had it’s ups and downs. I’ve learned a lot over the past year.

Hey there! It’s been a little while, friends. I feel like I’ve been starting every blog post this way for the past 6 months. The truth is, is that since I started this blog two and a half years ago (whoa) a lot has changed in my life.
And as I’m writing these very words I am remembering that I wrote a very similar post back in October. In that post I realized how different my life looked from the first post on The Primal Yogi. And now even since October, there have been more changes like getting engaged!
So since I don’t think I will ever be ready to give up the blog completely I will just continue to contribute and share when I can. To give you a glimpse as to what I’ve been up to lately I thought I’d share some pictures from the past few months.
Work has looked very different for me. I am no longer sitting at a desk all day long. I am up on my feet, educating active people on some pretty cool clothes, and developing myself and my team so that we can all follow our dreams and reach our goals. Outside of actually working I am in the community trying out new workouts with my awesome team. Bar, SoulCycle, Crossfit, you name it! And of course still getting on my mat a few times a week.
I’ve also been able to practice my photog skills at work. This has been a super fun part of my job. What’s better than meeting like-minded people and capturing beautiful images of them? Continue reading
