Nicole Tsong and Irie Love
Your body is made to move and is designed to adapt to a range of activity--climbing, sprinting, carrying heavy things, walking long distances. Yet today we move less than ever before. Yoga instructor and fitness expert Nicole Tsong wants to change that. She has tried hundreds of different types of movement and her book, 24 Ways to Move More (Mountaineers), she shares which of those are the most fun, accessible, and body-beneficial. Detailing two new activities for each month of the year, she describes her own experiences trying each movement, then lays out a road map for readers to embark on a similar adventure, starting at beginner level and moving up through "Reach" and "Adventure" goals.
Known for a playful, accessible approach to fitness, health, and wellness, Nicole Tsong wrote the popular column "Fit for Life" in The Seattle Times, She is also the author of Yoga for Hikers and Yoga for Climbers (Mountaineers Books). Tonight she appears in conversation with Irie Love, a BIPOC, born and raised in Hawaii on the island of Oahu. She spent most of her life as a full-time singer, touring, traveling and living all over the world, since 1999. She moved to Portland in November 2017 to work at CycleBar as an instructor and then Seattle in November 2018 pursuing a full-time fitness career! Now a Certified Personal Trainer, RYT 200 Rasa Yoga and Cycle Instructor, she is still making music whenever she feels inspired.
