Episode 124: Melanie Klein — Reimagine Your Relationship With Your Body

Today’s guest is Melanie Klein, a professor of Sociology and Women’s Studies, co-founder of the Yoga and Body Image Coalition, and author of the new book, Yoga Rising: 30 Empowering Stories from Yoga Renegades for Every Body. Her work has made her a respected leader in the conversation around yoga and body image.

In this interview, we talk about how she came to be such an advocate for the positive body image movement. Plus, since I am a former editor for Yoga Journal, we have a candid conversation about how media has contributed to this dialogue—for better and worse.

Here are some highlights:

* Melanie tells her “body story” and how yoga helped her move from an unhealthy preoccupation with her body to body acceptance

* I learn the phrase “the body project”—the idea that we spend so many resources working on our bodies in hopes that one day we’ll be “perfect”—and I feel like a giant lightbulb has been turned on. What would the world be like if women redirected all of that time, energy, money, and brain power toward other projects?

* The ways that being a yoga practitioner has perpetuated “the body project” for both of us

* The calling that Melanie felt to start YBIC

* How yoga teacher, Bryan Kest, helped Melanie shape her views on body image

Episode 123: All About the Ketogenic Diet with Dr. Will Cole

Dr. Will Cole Quote | Ketogenic Diet | Yoga Podcast

I’m so excited to share this interview with Dr. Will Cole! Dr. Cole is a functional medicine doc whose new book, Ketotarian, offers a mostly plant-based approach to the ketogenic diet that’s much healthier than the traditional bacon and bunless burgers regimen.

I’ve been on the ketogenic diet for a few years and I value Dr. Cole’s approach — it’s compassionate, research-driven,and balanced. Plus, it was a real treat for me to bounce all of my keto questions off of someone! I got to ask Dr. Cole:

* Is the ketogenic diet really suitable for everyone?
* What’s the science and history behind it?
* What’s his advice for balancing the strict aspects of keto without going overboard into orthorexia?
* If you’re in overall good health, how can keto be beneficial to you?
* We also talk about soy, lechtins, fancy cows, and the importance of self-compassion when approaching any eating plan.

Episode 122: Applying Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra to Your Daily Life

Living the Sutras | Yogaland Podcast | Yoga Podcast

There are so many interpretations of the seminal yoga text, Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra. This week, I talk to two women who’ve written one that is refreshingly different. Kelly DiNardo and Amy Pearce-Hayden join me to talk about their book new book, Living the Sutras: A Guide to Yoga Wisdom Beyond the Mat. Their book is not a formal, scholarly translation of the Yoga Sutra. Instead, DiNardo and Pearce-Hayden have created a guide that can help you take the sutras, reflect on them, and then apply them to your life. Their approach is lively, relevant, modern and also informed by years of practice and study.

Episode 121: Q&A – Ideas for Building Your Business (And Your Confidence) as a Yoga Teacher

I got a great question from a listener recently in response to episode 119, so I decided to start this episode with Jason’s response. The listener, Neil, asks, “If we’re creating a practice that’s sustainable, does it really makes sense to repeat the same sequence over and over again?” And what’s the best way to handle pressure from studio and gym owners to “freshen things up?”

We also answer a couple of other questions that come in often, in many different forms, essentially:

* What’s the best way to cope with pre-class nerves?

* How do I feel more confident about self-promotion?

You’ll learn about:
