February 2016 Newsletter

It was my love of yoga - the practice itself and the yearning to know the what, why, and how that lies underneath - that inspired me to apply for yoga teacher training.Eleven years later my greatest love is sharing my knowledge and passion of yoga to eager, receptive practitioners.

This month I'm in full-on prep mode for the 2016 Capitol Hill Yoga Teacher Training Program, which begins in March. I'm excited to have CHY teachers Ingrid Benecke, Tara Lemerise, Katie Rutterer, and Alyson Shade join me as teacher trainers for this year's program. By the way, did you know that Tara and I did our teacher training together in 2005? Among the obvious outcomes of participating in a yoga teacher training program, cultivating camaraderie and friendships that last a lifetime are additional benefits. 

I hope you will consider being on this journey with us to dig deep, learn more, enhance practice, and relish in the community of shared interests. If participating in teacher training is not for you, just know that you still benefit as this is our process to sustain the high quality instruction that you have come to enjoy at Capitol Hill Yoga.

  Yoga Kitchen - Spiced Yerba Mate Latte


This "latte" is a nice at-home spin on a traditional latte with steamed milk and espresso that uses mate instead of coffee. I use this beverage daily to increase my mental clarity & feel more energized.
