One of my favorite things to do is to talk with people about my work, how I support clients on their paths, and how my own journey with big life experiences & transitions and mental & emotional well-being has informed and inspired the work I do with others.
Please enjoy some of these interviews from workshops, conferences, podcasts, and IG live events that I've done over the years. And if you'd like to connect with me about an interview or live discussion, please reach out to me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
I view the practices of yoga and meditation primarily as an opportunity to drop into the full experience of the moment through attention and awareness and, through that presence, to experience the fullness of life. These practices offer practitioners a way to take care of their entire selves (physically, mentally, emotionally, energetically) allowing them to be more balanced, strong, healthy, alive, and present and to bring those qualities into all aspects of their lives.
My Digital Resource Library has over 100 recorded short & long yoga classes and short & long guided meditations to support you in your home practice.
Practice when you can, where you can, and as you are.
For a long time, I’ve held my opinions of yoga and the many forms in which it’s practiced close to me (admittedly, those close to me have had an earful, though) and err on the side of “non-judgment.” You know, to each his own, truth is one, paths are many, right? What I’ve come to realize over the years is that while we are taught, through our practice, to cultivate discernment/viveka, we’ve somehow turned that into the generalized “quality” of non-judgment. Non-judgment, on the surface, is lovely. Pure non-judgment or totally acceptance on an internal level can, in fact, change the world.
Ultimately, the only way we make it through any transition, big or small, chosen or not, is in the placing-of-one-foot-in-front-of-the other, step-by-step, breath-by-breath, meeting of the moment. Can’t bypass it, can’t avoid it, can’t pretend it’s not happening - though all of those options can sound so wonderfully inviting.
If I told you that in order to change any problem (“problem” being defined as something that’s holding you back or creating disruption in your life) all you need are three things, would you believe me?
