After over 17 years of practice and a 11 + years of teaching, there are a few things that I can emphatically recommend, they are :
Manduka Yoga Mats : I have had my ProMat Black for ever, it will last
Beyond Yoga : stylish, soft, and they stand up to repeated forward bends, they have a men's line too
Onzie : I just discovered this brand at Balance Oshkosh and I am in love - comfortable, fun, structurally sound and thin - they make a perfect base layer for the cold months
Angelina Skin Care : a local Bend OR natural skin care line made with ayurvedic and yogic intention, the best.
+ Banyan Botanicals
Moon Juice : just so pretty, to expand consciousness
Supporting local business is important to me. There is a wealth of experience and passion in those who take risks in creating business. Here are a few local Oshkosh businesses that I love :
Inner Sun Yoga Studio : fun, flowing, high-flying, bhakti yoga
Embody Yoga and Pilates : hot yoga and pilates studio- a clear bright space downtown
Balance Oshkosh : great yoga clothes, plus an awesome kids play area so you can shop blissfully
Bartelt Acupuncture : Regular acupuncture is essential to me. Megan is so sweet and a mama of two little ones and one big one.
Jenny Shufelt Coaching : I adore Jenny. She is revolutionizing how we view perfection in ways that are empowering, validating and real.
Liz Anderson : @Salon Mode for facials, seriously, wow.
Oshkosh Food Coop : become a member!
Growing Oshkosh Urban Farm : this is a non-profit doing amazing things in our schools and community. Do support.
Olden Organics : our CSA
My teachers are everywhere and I am constantly being fed by their wisdom and practice. My most influential teachers currently are:
And without Shiva Rea I would have never connected to my deepest essence and left my shell.
