I’ll never forget the moment I considered what life would be like without eggs, meat and dairy.
Background (which most of you know): I’m originally from Central Wisconsin. I lived there my entire life, up until I met Sean and moved west. My “motherland” is that of milk, sausage, cheese and the Green Bay Packers.
The way I grew up eating wasn’t gluttonous or unhealthy by any means — but the way I thought about “things that go on a dinner plate” was definitely locked in. You cook some sort of meat. A vegetable. And a grain. Done and done. I created that habit long ago, and I’d never considered changing it.
... until I did.
It was the night of my 32nd birthday in 2018 — something shifted.

Optional Weekly Zoom calls on
Tuesday nights at 7:30 MST (also recorded)
Here at Yoga Hive, Blaine and I have been working like the busy bees we are to create an opportunity to serve and nourish our hives with a Plant Based Challenge. It gives us all a reason to stay out of the Halloween candy bowl and reign it in before the Thanksgiving feast.
A challenge like this also brings you community: a group of people sharing an experience together — both on the live Zoom calls, with your accountability buddy (that we pair you up with!), and on our private Facebook group. The community aspect is not just a side benefit, but rather a direct and meaningful part of the experience.
And whether you stick with the plant-based life long after the challenge, or perhaps just utilize this chance to try something new, NOW is the perfect time to dive in and see what happens! Yogis don't wait!
When we let go of one thing in our life, we make space. And who couldn’t use a little space over the next few months?
Ready for the challenge? It's slightly different than our other challenges. Here is how it works:
There, I said it.
And everywhere I look these days, someone is vying for my attention. They want my vote. They want my money. They want my commitment. And I'm tired of hearing empty promises (followed by big asks) from people who don't walk the walk. Talk all day long about how you can heal me, help me, coach me, teach me... but a little sniffing around on social media, listening to your podcast interviews, and reading every email you've sent me?
Yeah. It all feels empty.
That's the thing about yoga — as I've consistently practiced all aspects of movement and stillness, I've become sensitive to people around me. My discernment improves daily. My attention is mastered and re-mastered all the time. I've become more equanimous in daily life — like the eye of the hurricane.
With consistent practice, and increased sensitivity to truth, authenticity in marketing sings out like church bells on a quiet day. Fake news wears a neon sign that says NOT WORTH YOUR TIME. And sales pitches? I'll be blunt: I don't really care what you offer. I care how you — the teacher — live your life. And if I like how you live, and if I want what you're offering, then sign. me. up.
