Hi, I found through MUA, even though I am not so much into makeup anymore! I am a massage therapist, massage teacher, yoga teacher, and health and wellness enthusiast. I have recently gotten into Kettlebells. Jillian Michaels (30 Day Shred) peaked my interested in strength training and KBs are the result. I love forums and message boards and hope to exchange information in a fun way! I also ride the bike. My husband builds custom bicycle wheels and he rides a lot. It has worn off on me! I''ve been riding an old mnt. bike for awhile, but this winter he is building me a real road bike and I''m stoked! The yoga I teach and ascribe to is Forrest Yoga ( and it is a compelling blend of intensity, strength, flexibility, ab work (lots!), and bringing the light of awareness to our bodies and emotions.

    Im having a hard time deciding between a road bike & hybrid comfort bike your post gave me a good Idea to get a cheapo & see how it goes. since I started running 6 months ago I tried Moksha yoga (its hot yoga but not as intense heat as the bikaram yoga)
    I love it and it balances out the need for stretching I noticed on your page your using the kettle bells something Im also interested in LoL
    Question: why do you like them over dumbells weights, or what benefit over the other do they have?

    Hey, I was reading one of your comments on the yoga forum and your profile pic inspired me, and here I am. I was just looking at the Forrest Yoga page and... WOW! There are some crazy postures! Pretty impressive!! I am into Ashtanga, and despite the fact that it is a recent love, it is growing at an incredible speed! But I am far away from being able to do some of those abs poses (quite scary :)! ). Interesting stuff!
