Read an Excerpt

Body Sculpting with Yoga will show you how to achieve your health and fitness goals through the powerful sculpting, toning, and strength-building benefits of yoga-inspired exercises.

It is not my intention to scare or intimidate you about my life’s work with professional athletes. Quite the contrary. I tell you my journey so you can rest assured that the exercises and workouts in this book have been built off of my time-tested techniques and will bring results.

In Body Sculpting with Yoga, I give you the basics of yoga and then bump it up with weights and repetitions, along with creative series, so even if you have never tried a yoga workout, you can still feel comfortable with this hybrid approach to training. I ask that you just do it!

There are no excuses. The first step is reading this book and the next step is taking action. Set your goals, set your intention, and set your pace, then watch what happens. You’ll notice increased energy levels, an improved body image, and better sleep. Be a doer, not a watcher, and redefine your purpose to achieve fitness goals you never thought possible.

Every day, I help people transform their lives from good to great, helping my clients reach their highest potential using my power yoga for sports philosophy to Attain fitness, find Balance, Create goals, and Define personal happiness in work, school, family, and life the way only an intuitive yogi and seasoned mom can. Now let’s get started building the body you’ve always wanted!
