Episode 116: A Natural Approach to Autoimmune Disease with Claire Missingham

Claire Missingham quote

Claire Missingham is back on the podcast this week, and we’re talking about how she’s been using yoga and other natural healing modalities to manage a recent diagnosis of an autoimmune disease.

She tells us:

*How the grief of losing a yoga teacher in her community to suicide led her to start running, learn to swim (as an adult), and compete in marathons and triathlons

*How she became diagnosed with Lupus, and how she manages it through food, adaptogenic herbs, and other natural methods of healing

*Why she takes a freezing cold shower every morning before her yoga practice and wears a bikini in the snow!

*What herbs she found to be most helpful in her healing, travel, and daily life and why she says they’re worth every penny (Plus, she offers a few tips for stretching your dollar when buying and using herbs)

*How her diagnosis  has impacted her asana practice and her thoughts on how yoga is always changing to meet her where she is

Claire Missingham’s Be-All-End-All Smoothie

A spoonful of chia seeds/flax seeds (grind yourself for better for absorption)
1 cup almond milk
1 scoop of coconut manna
½ tsp Maca
Protein powder – Hemp is good or Moon Juice Protein
½ tsp Tocotrienols – This is a powdered form of vitamin E that gives a creamy thickness
Scoop of Plant collagen – currently loving Anima Mundi Herbs
½ tsp Blue magik (blue spirulina)
1-2 Iodine drops for adrenal function
Pinch of Cinnamon – adaptogenic herb great for cutting sugar cravings
1 tsp He Shu Wu to help with oxytocin levels
Couple of dates (Note: Soak dates overnight then remove the outer skin. They are covered in mold spores!)

No ice cubes, keep at room temp, add water as required.
Pop into machine and whizz up, drink immediately

Episode 115: Overcoming Obstacles and Living to Your Fullest Potential with Rosie Acosta

Rosie Acosta podcast | Rosie Acosta quote | Yogaland Podcast

On this episode, I’m joined by yoga teacher and holistic health coach Rosie Acosta. Rosie shares her personal story of growing up in East L.A. in the 90s where chaos and violence surrounded her daily. By the time she was a teen, she’d been arrested, she was physically unhealthy, and she didn’t see much of a future for herself. And yet, here she is now, living a bright, fulfilled life.

Her story is inspiring and speaks to the power of the human spirit and the power of a dedicated yoga practice. ✨ “The minute I walked into that [yoga] room, I felt like I was home.” ✨

Rosie shares:
– How one of the biggest mistakes of her life as a teen was actually a catalyst for positive change
– The internal conflict of wanting to create a better life for herself while knowing that the family feared losing her if she “got out”
– How growing up with instability created a deep internal craving for stability
– How she juggled several jobs and explored different paths before finding the right fit with yoga
– Her advice for finding the right yoga teacher for you

This interview is a must-listen for anyone who has ever felt the odds are against them.

More about Rosie Acosta:

Rosie Acosta is an Inspirational Speaker, Yoga & Meditation Teacher and a Yoga Teacher Trainer, a Holistic Health Coach. As the founder of Radically Loved: Yoga, Health + Wellness, she is also the host of the Radically Loved Radio podcast.

Episode 114: The Good, Bad, & Ugly of the Ego with Sally Kempton

Sally Kempton quote | yoga philosophy podcast | Yogaland Podcast

I’ve been thinking a lot about ego lately. I’ve been talking to Jason’s teacher trainees about social media strategy and putting yourself out there. And yet, I personally feel like social media brings out the most immature aspects of my ego. I thought it would be a good refresher for all of us to think about what yoga teaches us about the ego.

This week, Sally Kempton and I talk about the purpose of the ego, misunderstandings around it (no, you don’t ever annihilate your ego — if you did, you probably wouldn’t shower or pay your bills on time), and how to approach it from a yogic perspective. We get into how our ego is potentially affected by social media, and how our awareness of pure awareness (or consciousness or divinity depending on which language works best for you) is what can help us relax our ego when it’s triggered.

Summer Series 2018: Cross Training for the Win with Debbie Steingesser

Yoga Crosstraining | Yoga Podcast with Debbie Steingesser | Yogaland Podcast

A lot of people come to yoga to help them balance some of the activities they do on a daily basis. After all, yoga is a great antidote to sitting in a chair, looking at a computer or iPhone screen, and other things sedentary people do.

But you might not realize that if you’re an avid yogi who practices daily, it can be helpful to add other types of movement into your routine to counterbalance the effects of the yoga asanas.

That’s what today’s guest, longtime vinyasa yoga teacher and CrossFit trainer Debbie Steingesser, came to realize after she suffered a hip injury that required physical therapy and strength training to heal.

This week, I talk to Debbie about how strength training has changed her practice–and her life!

We talk about:

*How a hip injury led Debbie to physical therapy and eventually CrossFit and how that experience changed her view on what yoga could do for her

*What is CrossFit is and how can it be a complementary practice for yoga students

*How the benefits of cross training go beyond the physical

Summer Series 2018: Summer Self Care Using Ayurveda with Niika Quistgard

How to Use Ayurveda to Cool Down | Beat the Heat This Summer with Niika Quistgard | Yogaland Podcast

If you’re a vinyasa yoga practitioner you’re probably familiar with the term “building heat.” That might not sound so appealing to you right now, though–especially if you live somewhere that summer is hot and sticky enough without any additional heat, thank you very much.

This week on the podcast, our favorite Ayurvedic expert, Niika Quistgard, offers Ayurvedic summer self care tips. Niika has a gift for making the principles of Ayurveda easy to understand — once you learn them, you’ll know how to cool down and come back into balance.

She shares:

* How to adapt your lifestyle during pitta season–we get into how to approach your yoga practice, meditation, breathing techniques, and which  foods to eat (and avoid) during pitta season

* A few specific poses and practices that are calming for pitta

* The one thing that’s even more important than you dominant dosha. (It’s all about balance, baby!)

* What Niika  means when she talks about taking “self-leadership” on your yoga mat and in your life

* BONUS: Enjoy the soothing sounds of nature throughout this interview as Niika is talking to us outdoors among some particularly melodious birds.
