About the VulgarYogi® Brand
A fundamental flaw of the human perception is that it unconsciously wishes itself content, a concept gleaned from the cultural leaves of an unrealistic and unsustainable idealization of reality.
Years ago, “average” was my objective. Yet my accomplishments were unfulfilling, my emotions were uncontrollable, and no matter how much I tried, I just did not “fit” in with what was deemed normal. No one seemed to understand. So, with a ball of fiery hope in one hand and stinging vile of courage in the other, I did the unthinkable. I took off my clothes and bared my soul to the world. The good, the bad, the dirty and yes, the fucking vulgar.
Once exposed, I finally looked at myself from eyes that had never seen. A fierce warrior who was real, audacious, brave, out there, untamed and unbroken, looked back at me. Thereafter, I began taking direction from my soul, regardless if what I did was odd, uncouth, disliked or abnormal. I began following a holistic practice, freeing the creativity from within and expressing the insights and art coloring my head through my body and words. I let the insanity, the intensity and the “real” pour all over my body and cleanse me from the inside out.
From the insight of this empowerment, the line Vulgar Yogi® was borne. Vulgar Yogi® is a dynamic, versatile, growing brand of many types of yoga, personal training, pilates, HIIT, modeling, bodywork, and art. The brand’s focus is helping others, while promoting female empowerment and mental health, through the root foundation of love.
It is not the leaves of the tree or its many branches that hold it together, but the root—the heart— where all magic resides. A raw, wild and ever-adapting energy from within, and, although at times it may beautiful, vile, intriguing or… Vulgar…, through my practice I and brand, I hope to inspire others to grow from within, to depart from what is expected and to empower their strength and individuality.
Wild, strong, crazy, genius, focused, raw, determined, Vulgar Yogi® encompasses each one. As the brand’s founder, as well as a teacher and mental health advocate, I will build strength; I will cross lines; and I will continue to pour enthusiasm, willpower and love into my students. Every. Fucking. Day.

VulgarYogi® HIIT SHIT — a punch to the gut (your belly gut)! Want to increase your energy level and stop feeling sluggish? Want to get at peak performance in your sport? Got a photoshoot coming up? High-intensity interval training (HIIT), also called high-intensity intermittent exercise or sprint interval training, is a form of interval training, a cardiovascular exercise strategy alternating short periods of intense anaerobic exercise with less intense recovery periods, until you get too exhausted to continue. You WILL get your heart rate up and Vulgar WILL NOT let you half-ass it. This class is the fastest way to cut fat, burn calories, and detox. If done correctly, HIIT will keep you burning calories throughout the night over a single workout, that’s what separates it from any other workout you’ve ever done.
