Want to try yoga but too intimidated by the complicated poses? Or, do you think you’re simply not flexible enough to contort yourself into a pretzel? Then, you’re going to love 3 Week Yoga Retreat, coming in September exclusively to Beachbody On Demand.
3 Week Yoga Retreat is perfect if you’re new to the yoga mat, as this beginner yoga program will guide you through three weeks of basic yoga classes and help you feel less stressed, improve your flexibility, and increase your balance. The program doesn’t require any equipment (though a yoga mat, yoga block, and a strap are all helpful), and we’ve included a modifier for each of the moves to help ease you in.
3 Week Yoga Retreat makes the moves easy to understand  and was designed so you can easily follow along. Beachbody did an extensive search to find four trainers that you’ll not only love, but who are also masters of the practice. This trusted team of four will guide you through each session with cueing so precise you could do the program blindfolded (not that we’d recommend that).
After completing one 30-minute or shorter class a day, you’ll have a deeper understanding of yoga by the end of 21 days. You’ll also have the confidence to hold your own in any yoga class!
Each week builds upon the prior one, and the 21-day program kicks off with Week 1 led by Vytas Baskauskas, a trainer who already has a dedicated following in Los Angeles (and, yes you may have seen him on Survivor!). He’s been studying and practicing yoga for more than 15 years, and approaches the discipline in a functional and technical way that will help you understand not just the poses, but also why they’re important. During that first week Vytas will teach you yoga fundamentals so you can build a solid foundation for the weeks to come.

The Classes in 3 Week Yoga Retreat

Mondays are Core. The foundation of yoga starts in your core. This class focuses on exercises that engage, activate, and build awareness of these very important muscles.
Tuesdays are Stretch. This class is aimed at helping you stretch, extend, and lengthen all the muscles in your body with a variety of poses.
Wednesdays are Balance. Challenge yourself with a series of different postures that engage the core and help you develop better balance inside and out.
Thursdays are Flow. In this class you’ll put together everything you’ve learned so far and connect it with your breathing in a nonstop “flowing” format. This is Vinyasa Flow, Beachbody-style.
Fridays are Flow to Go, a shorter, more advanced version of Thursday’s class that features a little less cueing.
Saturdays are Relax. Faith helps you unwind from your week with this relaxing class.
Sundays are Take 10. These are short, 10-minute classes that will help you wake up, wind down, or work those abs. Pick one or do all three.
Are you ready to get started? The 3 Week Yoga Retreat is launching soon on Beachbody On Demand with 21 classes, a Quick Start Guide, Beginner’s Basic Video, a Pose Tracker, and a Class Calendar. It’s also free for Beachbody On Demand members!

Summer Strong, All Summer Long FITNESS CHALLENGE

This is exciting!! I decided to do something a little different this summer and offer an on-going, all summer long fitness and nutrition challenge. Why? Because I don't want people to feel limited on time and scheduling. Summers often throw us off our regular routines and schedules, but that doesn't mean that we need to completely fall off the healthy wagon, so to speak! That's why I created a summer-long program where my clients can jump in and out when needed...or stay with it the entire summer! It's totally up to you!

So, do you a vacation this summer? A reunion? Just want to feel and look your best? Get that bod healthy, strong, and bikini-ready because summer is just around the corner! Join my online fitness and nutrition accountability group where you'll get daily motivation, support, fun, and accountability! AND PRIZES TOO! Why? Because you deserve to LOOK and FEEL AMAZING this summer and beyond!


- I'm looking for women of ALL ages and ALL fitness levels (you will submit your fitness level and goals to me during the sign up process)
- You will receive motivation, daily accountability & 1:1 coaching from me 
- You will get to try Shakeology for 30 days (and beyond) to help you maximize your results
- You will receive meal plans, grocery list, and planning tools


Together we will work HARD towards getting healthier and in better shape. We will focus on your nutrition and fitness goals, while providing motivation and daily accountability! There will also be contests and prizes!

People see more success when they do it together with like-minded individuals who are also ready for change and want to surround themselves with others who want to see the same results. All of this will be done in our own homes, on our own schedules...what's more convenient than that? You can even choose a workout program that can be streamed instantly via laptop, tablet, or mobile device...perfect for those who travel. It's a recipe for success! No excuses!

This challenge will run in a private group and easily accessible with a challenge tracker app. You will be matched with a program/plan that aligns with YOUR specific health and fitness goals. You will also have the option to choose your own workout programs from hundreds of Beachbody workouts!

Zoodles (Zucchini Noodles) with Meat Sauce

I made this the other night for dinner and it was a hit! Following a Paleo/ anti-inflammatory diet keeps us away from wheat and grains, so we sure miss pasta dishes. It was fun to pretend we were having spaghetti night while getting in our veggies! Super easy to make and delish, try it!

How to Make this Dish!


1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound zucchini

Make zucchini noodles with spiralizer or julienne peeler
Heat olive oil in a large saute pan
Add zucchini noodles (add seasoning if you want) to pan
Stir for 3-5 minutes until noodles are tender

Meat Sauce

1lb organic grass fed beef or ground turkey
1Tbsp minced garlic or 2 cloves garlic
1tsp Basil
1tsp Thyme
1tsp oregano
Salt & Pepper to taste
1 Jar organic marinara sauce

Brown meat in large skillet while adding in spices and garlic
Add sauce and simmer 15-20 minutes

Pour over zoodles and top with Parmesan cheese if desired
Serve and enjoy!

Shakeology Cafe Latte Review

Can I just say, Vegan Chocolate Shakeology you've got some mean competition?! Until now, I've enjoyed a delicious and nutritious super foods shake made with vegan formula of Shakeology in chocolate flavor...which is TO DIE FOR. It's basically what keeps me from falling off the healthy wagon and shoving dark chocolate caramel bars in my mouth daily. FOR. REAL.  But then Beachbody just came out with its newest flavor, CAFE LATTE...and let me tell you, this is addicting! It only comes in the regular formula, which means there is whey protein and dairy, but I am willing to deal with that for how great it tastes! Think a healthy version of a Starbucks Frappuccino...and the recipes that come with your order, I've only made a couple so far since I received my order just last week.

Does Café Latte contain more caffeine than the other Shakeology flavors?

A: NOPE! The caffeine levels in Café Latte are exactly the same as they are in ALL of our Shakeology flavors. So even though it tastes like coffee, Café Latte contains 75% less caffeine than an 8 oz. cup of coffee.

What makes Café Latte so great?

A: It’s formulated with WHOLE Coffee Fruit, not just the bean—a coveted super food powerhouse that’s native to regions of Mexico and India. Coffee fruit is actually the red fleshy fruit that surrounds what we know as the coffee bean! Not only is Café Latte delicious, but the use of the entire plant also minimizes Shakeology’s carbon footprint.

What ingredients are in these shakes?

A. 70+ super food ingredients, like probiotics, prebiotics, antioxidants, protein, essential vitamins and nutrients, fiber, and more. Click here for the nutrition facts.

How Can I Order mine? 
A. Right HERE

And here are two of my favorite recipes made with 

Cafe Latte Shakeology:
