Namaste at the Manhattan Beach Open!

Last Friday, I nervously walked up to the Manhattan Beach Pier to teach a sunrise yoga class to kickoff the AVP Volleyball Tournament. With my yoga flow scribbled on a piece of paper, I looked up to find a huge stage set up for the Manhattan Beach Open. Oh-em-geee. A lot of you know that I’m still new to teaching yoga, so I was literally shakin’ in my leggings. As I got closer I felt so much better seeing so many familiar faces from the TIU Community :)

I was so honored to teach in my hometown of Manhattan Beach and to open up the big AVP weekend with a beautiful flow. So many local friends came and a few even surprised me, so I of course started teaching with tears in my eyes…lol. All the girls came from the TIU HQ too, which was so awesome! Here’s a little video recap of the day. :) Thanks Brian for capturing!


My yoga goals are Jamie from @Selectivelyspiritual…freaking love her so much!

Thank you to AVP Volleyball and the City of Manhattan Beach for putting on such a great community event. Thank you JoJo L. Cortez for all the amazing pics and Brian & Caitlin for the video footage!

After teaching we went to to the tournament with our friends Angela, Eddie, & Liz!

Got in another lil’ workout… bike ride to the pier! 

AND THEN THIS HAPPENED! We were dancin’ and they put us up on the kisscam- is that what it’s called? Haha

Sushi night! I ordered seaweed salad, sashimi, cucumber rolls, edamame, shishito peppers! Oh and a glass of sauv blanc ;)

Best part of the night? Running into Melanie~ a TIU babe! We loved her kimono and she said it’s from Target…so we literally went the next day looking for it! Haha. Love her!
