Here’s a piece I wrote for Medium about my job as the In-House Yogi at Clif Bar.

Rushing between meetings, emails, and spreadsheets, my students show up to relieve their creaky necks, backs, and hips. As the In-House Yogi at Clif Bar & Company’s onsite gym I unravel aching bodies and soothe frazzled minds. I teach movement medicine — the antidote to sitting disease.
As a leading maker of organic food for athletes and other active folks, we take sustainability seriously: both of the environment and our bodies. As cyclists, triathletes, and rock climbers we’re propelled by outdoor adventures but acknowledge the current research: being a weekend warrior doesn’t make up for a lack of movement Monday through Friday.
