Hi I’m Alley! On this site you’ll find the adventures and thoughts of myself and the most amazing man in my life, Kyle! I can’t wait for you to get to know each of us!
Now a little background:
I’m so excited about the adventures I’ve had in this life, and all the ones yet to come. This page started as a passion project for my yoga and ideally you’ll still see a lot of that. I’ve had such a love hate relationship with my body and Yoga and Meditation has really helped me come out of that. I started yoga when I was 15 years old, so at this point that’s about 10 years ago…. I HATED it. I was NOT the skinny 15 year old that still had a bunch of flexibility. I was awkwardly shaped and felt so fat in comparison to every other person there. You know that feeling when your boobs squish your throat in Plow pose? Ya… That was my experience. I tried to continue it because I loved the idea of yoga and being in better shape because of it but it just wasn’t a fit for me at the time. Years passed and I would off and on hate it and love it.
Finally, after a horrible marriage ending in divorce, anorexia through high school, and a crazy weight lifting stage, I had found peace with yoga. It wasn’t until I was accepting of the fact that I was not like every other person in the room, that I was not your average yogi that I was able to love it.
For the newer aspect of this site – the Wander Where Lost Podcast, this is something I am so excited to share with you guys! Through this podcast I feel that it has brought further togetherness with friends and family, as well as those I didn’t know before the episode started. The focus is on traveling and with this big, giant world we have to explore there’s plenty of material! I hope you enjoy coming with me on these adventures as we talk about some Do’s and Don’ts as well as a ton of different stories and different countries.
Now who takes all these instagram photos and films all of the videos? Not to mention, provides all the numbers? That’s where Kyle comes into this. Not only does he let me know when I’m not nailing a pose, he has the photographic evidence to show me how to fix it. He’s the logical part of our duo and keeps me grounded. He majored in Economics and is a research manager for the State of Nevada. He has a very interesting perspective and I hope you enjoy his segments as well!
