Hey! I’m Camryn, a gypsy soul and wild at heart kind of girl. I live in the heart of Washington, D.C. with my husband (whom I’m smitten kitten for like crazy). I adore D.C., but despise politics with the fire of a thousand burning suns. I believe almost all first world problems can be solved with a glass of good wine. (FACT: I’ve done the research.) I’m a city girl who has always had a huge love affair with the great outdoors. Nature is my favorite color, and I would hug just about any tree or baby animal without hesitation.
I’m passionate about the rights of all living creatures—humans and animals alike, and I believe success has nothing to do with titles or prestige, but in living a joyful, compassionate life. I spend my time investing in the people I love, the people who need love, and the one who have much they can teach me. I prefer to collect experiences, not things. I believe in making memories from ordinary days and finding the magic in a simple, authentic life. Adventures are my favorite, and I can never get enough traveling in or read too many books.
WHY I PURSUE THE FIT LIFE: I love that our bodies can heal naturally. Health and healing are two of my great passions. After being diagnosed with Lupus, I experienced first hand the power of clean eating and yoga. When western medicine meets holistic living, the combination is powerful.
My first degree is a double major in piano performance and English, but my true calling was to serve others. I became an ICU nurse and yoga instructor, which led me to obtaining certifications in naturopathy (the study of holistic health), nutrition, and herbology.
WHY YOGA: Yoga allows us to find a place of deep spiritual peace and a connection to God. For me, my practice is my little place to have quiet time with God. Some people do this in church, others in a field; I do it on a mat. I thoroughly believe we all have incredible potential and great worth; truly, God has wonderful plans for each of us. I firmly believe in the healing power of yoga. My personal yoga teacher and mentor is Kino MacGregor, and I consider it a tremendous honor to learn from her and share some of my training. In addition to my 200 hour training, I also have done 100 hour training course with Kino and Tim Feldmann, 25 hour teacher training with Seane Corn and extensive teacher training with MarieBelle PR. Like all things in life, yoga is an area where we never arrive, we only grow in grace.
Thanks for stopping by! Feel free to share what you’re learning or ways you’re living a naturally fit life. There is so much to love and enjoy each day, and I fully appreciate that we can taste and see and know that life is good. In fact, it’s beautiful.
