Back in Boulder after spending 3 weeks in Bali with @bodhiyogaacademy ❤️ I couldn’t be more proud of this group!
Sam- I can’t imagine someone I would rather teach with. Your passion is unrivaled 🔥 and it’s so clear how much you actually care.
Victoria- you were literally our angel on this trip. Thank you endlessly.
To our students- thank you so much for choosing us as your teachers. We love and appreciate every single one of you, you inspire us to keep going.
Thank you, thank you, thank you. (Second photo by @brookemichellej)


Working on the strength and flexibility for wide legged headstand press! @bodhiyogaacademy @samseesworld
We have TWO partial scholarships available for our training in New Jersey that starts this July 23rd. It’s not too late to join us! DM me for details on how to apply.


When I first started practicing yoga asana I skipped a lot of steps. I used the natural flexibility in my joints to try to force my body into different advanced asana. I honestly didn’t even realize I was forcing it at the time, I thought it was part of the process. While this method worked for a little while, eventually my body rebelled, my joints and muscles not strong enough to support the range of motion I was asking them to go through.
While, I definitely don’t claim to have it all figured out I do know this:
If you are a yoga student, focus on building a strong foundation (think chaturanga, downward dog, plank pose etc) for the first few years of practice.
If you are a yoga teacher, constantly encourage your students (and yourself) to re-look at their foundational asana in order to build a stronger, safer, more well rounded practice.

When did Instagram become a magazine for professional photos? Clearly I see my part in this 😂 but I get so bored looking at photos of myself in the same asana over and over again in a different pretty location. Every now and then I will get a picture like this one and feel like “okay, that one is cool,” though for the most part it feels pretty narcissistic 😝 #yoga ?
