A Night on the Rooftop with Sprouts and the Dallas Fitness Ambassadors.

I thought we’d take a quick break from the run chat to recap my evening with the Dallas Fitness Ambassadors! What better way to wind down on a Monday after the long work day than with libations, delicious bites from Sprouts, and a little yoga. This lovely event was held on the rooftop of The Alexan in Dallas. Perfect place to watch the sunset as we did a little meditation practice.

I am simply always go go go, and as a fitness instructor as well as a producer working behind the scenes in television my mind is always focused on my next task. So to slow down for an evening with some yoga nidra and yummies from my favorite local health food store was absolutely a real treat.

What is yoga nidra, you say? Well, it is nothing like power yoga or anything fast moving whatsoever. It definitely helps promote an overall sense of calm and relaxation.


I was definitely ready for some legit sleep after one session. This was perfect after my run I did a few hours prior.

It’s funny because shortly after this pic was taken the instructor made us hide our phones and keep them out of sight. It’s amazing how we are all glued to those things! It was really great to just unplug for a bit.

Sprouts also brought us a ton of goodies to take home, including nuts, dried fruit, chocolate and more. You had better believe I brought a bag of goodies home.

They also had fresh veggies, cheese, and cocktails on deck. Healthy happy hour at it’s finest.

After the yoga session I ventured over to the essential oil station where I made myself some body mist to take home. Lavender has the keys to my heart.

And of course we had some beautiful yogis that showed us some acro yoga poses after. That’s hashtag goals right there.

Overall it was such a fun, relaxing evening with my Dallas Fitness Ambassadors! I am so proud to be a part of this amazing fitness blogger/influencer network. To find out more, check out their website here!

  1. Hello, I have done Yoga Nedra many times, I felt like I wanted to go to sleep after. I really liked the intention part of it. I do hot Venysa yoga and love it, and also a cycling instructor. Not a runner like you, used to be a trail runner, I think the last fall did me in, but as we know you are running on dirt which was always fun. I lived in L.A. for about a year and half, and in addition to instructing, I fell in love with Flywheel, I felt so jazzed that the founder was in Phoenix last night, and I had the honor of taking her class. I really like reading your blog, last night for you sounded great!

  2. I have never heard of Yoga nidra, but it sounds heavenly. Maybe they will bring this to my gym. I love a gentle yoga, but this sounds even better to wind right down from a busy life.
    This event looks like a great time!

  3. I didn’t realize before that you were also in Dallas! This sounds like it was a lot of fun.
