The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself

This book, by Michael Singer, was a game changer for me. It helped me to better understand and feel what it means to be in the seat of the observer with my thoughts. We can't be the thing we are observing, right?

Restorative Yoga with Assists
A Manual for Teachers and Students of Yoga

I can only begin to explain how beloved this book is to me and how amazing the author is! I was able to teach myself the practice of restorative yoga from this book. The pictures and explanations are fabulous. I use this book so much that got it spiral bound with a protective cover.

Yoga for Arthritis: The Complete Guide

I found this book at a used bookstore and it became one of my favorites instantly! Even though I don't have arthritis, I use it for myself and as a reference guide for teaching. I find the organization of this book to be very user friendly. There are photos of the poses, listed contraindications for each, and a step-by-step outline of how to do them.

Vuori Clothing

Years ago I had the opportunity to test this brand as they were emerging. I fell in love with it right away! This company invests in their employees, the community, and environment. I wear their yoga clothing often for my own practice and for teaching. My loungewear is primarily their performance hoodie and joggers.

Manduka Bolster

This is my go-to bolster! I own four rectangle shaped ones. I use them with clients and for myself. I've had them now for four years and they are as intact as when I got them. It is super easy to take off the cover, wash it, and put it back on!

Manduka eKO Superlite Travel Yoga Mat

I use this one for traveling. It easily folds or rolls up. Depending on the type of practice, I sometimes will put it on top of a public yoga mat if needed for hygenic purposes.
