With the trying times we are facing, I want to be able to use this opportunity to connect and grow with my fans whom I consider family. Every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday at 12pm PST, I will be going live on Instagram for you to join me in the Zen Den. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, I will host a 15-minute home workout where no equipment is needed. On Saturdays, I will give you a peek behind the curtain on one of my many recovery, movement or fitness techniques. I’m going to take advantage of this time for personal growth, and I can’t wait for you all to join me. I look forward to seeing you in the Zen Den.
