• 31. Trust the Process: Abhyasa and Vairagya

    Oct 13 2021

    What is "the point" of yoga practice? What even counts as yoga practice? Listen to this episode to have those questions answered! I cover the ancient philosophy that gives background to why one would practice yoga, what that practice can look like, and leave you with several actionable examples of how to take this philosophy onto your mat and into your life. These concepts come from the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and the Bhagavad Gita. We even get into some more modern health and wellness concepts, like the differences between motivation and discipline.

  • 30. Impermanence and Aparigraha: The Yoga of Letting Go

    Oct 6 2021

    When you live life with open hands, by letting go, you create space for receiving blessings from the universe. It's not quite that simple, though--sometimes we have to exist in the awkward empty space between letting go of what was and receiving what will be. Listen to this episode to learn tips and tricks to letting go of attachments to things like titles, obligations, ways of being, material possessions, etc, to feel more at ease with what truly exists in life. This doesn't mean we can't still pursue material comforts and better situations in life--tune into the episode to see what I mean by that!

  • 29. Neurosculpting: Neuroscience and yoga for healing trauma with Jody Domerstad

    Sep 29 2021

    Eating well, exercise, and practicing yoga can prevent a lot of disease, but not all chronic illness is as simple as lifestyle choices. Tune into this inspiring interview with Jody Domerstad to learn about her experiences with numbing and seeking answers outside of herself, years of chronic illness despite an outwardly healthy lifestyle, and how she has learned to cope and thrive. 

    Jody shares about neurosculpting, a meditation technique designed by Lisa Wimberger.

Vata season, or Fall/Autumn to early Winter, brings qualities to the environment and our bodies/minds that are light, dry, cold, mobile, subtle and rough. The ether and air elements dominate the energy of this time, which might make you feel carefree or creative, but it also might make you feel spacey or scattered. Listen to the episode to learn tips on practices to warm your body, settle your mind, and balance these energies.

  • 27. Get Unstuck with Yoga: Pratipaksha Bhavana

    Sep 9 2021

    A common tenet of Ayurveda is "like increases like, and opposites bring balance". On this episode, we explore where that idea comes from in a few places in yoga philosophy (including ancient texts such as the Upanishad and the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali), as well as how practical examples of how to apply these concepts to your yoga practice and everyday life.

    The origin of the phrase "pratipaksha bhavana" (which roughly translates to cultivate the opposite) comes from Yoga Sutra 2.33, which says "When disturbed by negative thoughts, cultivate the opposite mental attitude." With that in mind, in this episode we discuss practices and evidence for changing negative thoughts to positive ones. I also discuss how this is relevant to deciding which Ayurvedic practices to choose, and how to get unstuck in your life using this philosophy.

  • 26. Holistic Wellness with Cassie Hoelzl from EVERYbody Podcast

    Sep 2 2021

    Tune into this serendipitous interview to get two seemingly different, but very overlapping, perspectives on holistic health. I met Cassie on a yoga hike (through namasteinnature.com), and we instantly connected based on our perspectives on holistic health, chronic pain, trauma, and more. We discovered on the trail that we're both podcast hosts and knew this interview had to happen! 

    In this episode, we have a conversation about sooo many health topics. From overcoming trauma, growing up in a family of addiction, suffering from addiction, big career changes, and more. We discuss the tools that helped us navigate life's circumstances with a little more ease--from incremental change to using exercise/yoga to satisfy all of the dimensions of wellness. Tune in for lots of nuggets of wisdom and realness!

    Check out Cassie's Podcast, which can be accessed from her website: https://www.everbodyhm.com

  • 25. Work Life Balance: A Yogic Perspective

    Aug 25 2021

     Is finding a balance between work and life frequently a struggle? You're not alone, and yoga can help! The good news is, yoga philosophy and especially Vedic astrology offer some validation that we will be constantly in a dance between the inner and outer worlds! In this episode, I go over several tools and techniques from yoga, Ayurveda, and Jyotish (Vedic astrology) to help make this dance a little smoother. Sometimes, one takes a priority over the other--we must take time off from work for our health or family, or sometimes we must focus more on work to meet a big goal. Listen for tips to find balance, and make sure you take advantage of the companion Dharma worksheet to this episode! 

    “As is your desire so is your will, as is your will so is your deed, as is your deed so is your destiny" - The Upanishads

    The primary tool described in this episode is the Purusharthas, or the Four Aims of Life. These are Dharma (life purpose, moral compass), Artha (pursuit of wealth and material comfort), Kama (pleasure, enjoyment, fulfillment), and Moksha (spiritual liberation or a sense of ease in this lifetime). We are all trying to balance these four aims all the time! I describe how to see these in your birth chart to see what your natural tendencies are, and how to use transits (astrological weather) to see if you might be headed towards a season of one area taking a forefront. You can also use the companion worksheet for this episode to help organize your thoughts and gain clarity on what you might need to do to find more balance.

  • 24. Venus, the Rose Lineage, and Divine Feminine Empowerment with Amber Brown-Short

    Aug 18 2021

    This episode is RICH with resources, stories, and inspiration from Amber Brown-Short, a Divine Feminine Empowerment coach who uses archetypes, embodiment, and so much more to empower women. Amber's story is nothing short of amazing, and the insights she offers from an embodied place are SO valuable for anyone wanting to shift away from toxic masculinity culture and be reborn into confidence, empowerment, and self-healing.

    Listen to discover how Amber works with motherhood as a spiritual awakening, her own somatic healing, and tuning into symbols and archetypes and the messages from the universe that they bring to now guide other people back to the divine feminine.

    We talk about mythological archetypes that transcend many cultures. Just a few of the topics you will learn about on this episode include the rose lineage (sometimes called the "red thread"), rose medicine, the story and orbit of Venus, chakras and the underworld, and divine feminine awakening. My personal favorite insight Amber shared was how she uses astrology as a lens to understand the self, especially the movements of the sun, moon, and Venus.
