This week’s podcast brought so much joy. I chatted with Karyn Nesbit, who’s become somewhat of a Soul Cycle celebrity. Soul Cycle is my cardio of choice, I’d do it every day if I could. It’s not zen like everything else, but there is something to it that’s more than just the workout. It’s a therapy session, jam session and cardio session rolled into one. I’ve learned a lot on the bike, pushing through resistance and working to failure inevitably brings up emotions, blocks and thoughts, many of which have manifested on WELL / AWARE. Karyn’s classes sell out in seconds, because her teaching style is fearlessly authentic and notoriously challenging among the Soul tribe. Her beats are also incredible, check out the Spotify link in the show notes. I first took Karyn’s class because a friend of a friend told me she’d recently tried it on a whim and was hooked immediately… actually around this time last year. I can’t believe it’s been a full year of classes!
FITNESS | I can’t help but write about my Soul Cycle experience because my instructor, Karyn Nesbit, is a beautiful soul who walks the walk just as well as she talks the talk. Somehow she helps me find me edge and then pushes me beyond it every.single.week and it’s 100% because she leads by example.
WELL / AWARE ELSEWHERE | An abbreviated version with more photos of my clean beauty favorites are on UPPERLYNE this week. Check it out!
BLOG LOVE | I’ve been really inspired by Azulie Yogic Life in all aspects — the imagery, subject matter and yogic lifestyle are all beautifully congruent. I’m excited to announce that we’re collaborating on a little special for the summer solstice. (Thank you for introducing me to their space, Mason!)
FRESH | Sometimes it’s a challenge to keep everything fresh without feeling like you’re falling behind, no? A few of my favorite things keeping it fresh right now are this cleanser, this probiotic and taking three-hour long walks with friends as a social activity. So many good ideas come from walking, it’s free and doubles as movement. I wish more people were open to walking dates!
