About Ignite

If you had 5 minutes on stage what would you say? What if you only got 20 slides and they rotated automatically after 15 seconds?

Around the world geeks have been putting together Ignite nights to enlighten us – quickly.

10 things they don't tell you about hot yoga - and probably the 10 reasons why they don't

not related to my proposal topic


I love sports, being outside, riding my bike, paddling my SUP board, surfing, sailing, hiking, skiing, Bend, friends, my BFF hubby Ed and being a Grammie. I am a wellness and education consultant/project manager by trade - but the topic I am proposing is pure hobby.

Bend is a yoga mecca - with every type of practice available and a community of amazing people supporting it. I have tried quite a few studios and styles but for some hellish reason (as in "hot-as") I gravitate toward the hot kind - but it isn't always pretty. And, thankfully, it doesn't have to be serious
