To Fly or to Modi(fly)... That is the Question.

Sometimes when I hear the variation, my ego goes "fly Kate, fly!" and my body says "I'm in!" But other days, my ego says, "fly Kate, FLY!" but my body says, "please don't. I can't today." Some days I do what my ego says and I fly anyway - at the end of my practice I feel defeated and like I let myself down - like I didn't do my best. But I did that to myself - all because I listened to my ego and didn't honor my body and I didn't give it what it needed. No matter what sort of yoga class you go to, I promise it is the goal of your instructor to leave you in your own greatness - but that's on you whether you choose honor your true greatness or weather you try to "honor" your ego's. 

Happy 615 Day!!!

Happy National 615 Day! June 15... 6/15. That's today!! 

What's that mean here in Nashville? It means support your local favorites! So here's a list of some of my local favorites:

 

Shakti Power Yoga - This community... swoon. Owned and operated by the incredible Farina sisters who have always called Nashville home. Sometimes their precious parents stop by to help with things around the house, as loving parents do :) It's a family and they are so open to making you part of it. 

I've got a serious Girl Crush on Castilleja in Edgehill Village. In fact, I was there today getting a fathers day present. As a fitness professional, I always have water with me and these days it's always in my S'well water bottle which the amazing Hayley who owns the joint has gotten me hooked on. Hot for 12 hours (aka, my coffee, provided by Edgehill Cafe) and cold for 24 (aka, the water that would now be hot had it been in a regular water bottle throughout my class at Shakti)!

Music City Mise... because she provides locally sourced and fully prepped food to my belly. 

Stand Up Paddleboarding with Nashville Paddle Co - because laughing and sweating and sunscreen is exactly how I like to spend my weekends. 

Percy Priest - specifically the stairs at Belle Meade. I go up them once, run/jog/walk the white trail and then shower. Immediately. The sweat...

Lightning 100 - today they're playing ALL local music! Because it's National 615 day! Support your local artists and call in with some requests!

Porter Road Butcher - if you follow GetFit615 on Insta, you already know this. But I can't even express how important locally sourced and humanely raised meat is. It's healthier for you. It's healthier for the animal. And it's healthier for this planet. PRB is doing things right and I support that. 

The Turnip Truck - Every day. Sometimes twice. Best little grocery shop - go to the one in the Gulch for their hot bar at lunch. Having some sort of sickness or not feeling good? Talk to Miss Dolly. She literally cares for me like a mother.

OnTheEnd Crossfit - because if i'm going to lift really heavy stuff, I'm going to do it with people that support me and make me laugh and who also went to Belmont and who also can't keep their eyes open in pictures.  

The Yacht Club Co. - The owner texts me "cool beans." I like that. They sell shirts. They also make the incredible 615 shirt that you keep seeing everywhere! Click on the link and then shop GetFit615.

The Blowout Co. - They do your hair. They do your wedding hair. They do your date night hair. They do your oh-you-think-I-did-this-myself hair. They're amazing and kind and inspire me every day to do exactly what makes me happy. 

 

Those are just some of my favorite places. And I think they should be some of yours too! But if there not that's ok!! What are some of your favorite things to do in Nashville that didn't make this list?
