Body, Please Keep Going!

I wake up some days saying aloud, “I can do this.  Body, please continue to work for me.”  A physical career is what some of my clients dream of, but don’t exactly know how demanding it is. 4 years ago, I looked at my yoga teachers and thought, “Man, I wish I had that life.”  Crazy to think that now I do.

I love my life + job, don’t get me wrong.  But I have to take care of my body, nutrition & energy more than ever, because if I get sick, there is no other J Mauss to push you through your vinyasa or make you laugh when I say a dumb joke.

I’m sure all my fitness teacher friends agree, these are what the days look like:


  • Health Coaching Sessions – 2 clients today.  Each 1 hour long.  Each wonderful + open + willing to change.  Spend 1-2 hours writing + sending individual session notes with meal plans, exercise routines and lifestyle tips.
  • Marketing Event – Gotta pay the bills.
  • Create music playlists for 7 classes.
  • Workout.
