After moving to the desert, she began rock climbing, kayaking, and thrived on the meditative flow involved. When she found hot yoga she was instantly hooked and became an avid Bikram practitioner. She felt lacking whenever she missed a day. After moving to St George she completed 200 hour yoga teacher training.
