  • One Awesome Sauce Yoga Experience!

    This customer comment by Ayden B was just too good to go left unrepeated. Plus, it totally encapsulates the pure awesomeness of Tammy Rowe’s newest Core Fusion cardio class.

    Here it is…

    "AWESOME SAUCE * Be prepared to sweat all over with the vivacious encouragement of a pro dancer. This was great fun and a motivating challenge to see everyone in the class in on the action."

    Dude, how could you not want a piece of this flow after that comment? Get yourself in on the sweaty, awesome sauce action.

    tammy rowe exhale spa

    Oh, and here’s a working definition of awesome sauce just in case you’d like to start incorporating the phrase into your vernacular…

    awesome sauce (n) :

    • The essence of awesomeness.
    • Something which is awesome, cool or spectacular.
    • A beautifully assonant phrase which can and should be used on any occasion where joy and elation are expressed.

    Example 1 :

    Yogi 1: Did you try out YogaVibes yet?

    Yogi 2: Yeah, two words: Awesome sauce.

    Example 2 :

    Yogi 1: Dude, check out this tattooed yogi in Astavakrasana!

    the tattooed yogi

    Yogi 2: Dude!!!! That variation is a huge bowl of awesome sauce!

    You get the idea.

    For an additional serving of awesome sauce, check out Tammy Rowe’s complete collection of Core Fusion yoga videos filmed at Exhale Spa.

    Vibrating yoga awesomeness,
