Episode 64: Judith Hanson Lasater — Trust Yourself First

Judith Hanson Lasater Ph.D., physical therapist, has been teaching yoga since 1971. Judith has written nine books and is one of the founders of Yoga Journal Magazine. I had many opportunities to interview Judith during my decade as an editor there, but this interview was so refreshingly different for me because I got to ask her whatever I wanted!

She shared how she found yoga, the importance of following your intuition, and her tips for learning to communicate clearly. I have the utmost respect for Judith — her body of work, her insight, her compassion and care for her students all shine through in this interview.

  1. I could listen to Judith tell stories and weave her wisdom through her experiences all day long! What an amazing interview! Thank you, Andrea. I was tearing up at the end when she was telling you to take care of yourself, etc. she is a special person (and so are you)!

    One more thing…Yogaland is the first podcast I’ve listened to, and I’ve been listening from the beginning. I’ve tried to listen to other podcasts, but they do not resonate with me the way your podcast does. You have a calm, yet confident voice, and you speak with clarify and brevity. Thank you!

  2. I have been sharing things Ms. Lassiter said during your chat with her with many people. I really enjoyed listening to her very wise thoughts and experiences. I am not surprised it is one of your most well received podcasts. I thoroughly enjoyed it, but I enjoy all of your podcasts. I volunteer at a local hospital once a week doing simple clerical tasks. I look forward to listening to your podcasts while I work.

  3. I absolutely love listening to Judith, she is so inspirational and can put points across in such a down to earth, easy to relate way that it makes it easy learning. Thank you for inviting Judith, Thank you Judith for accepting to come in to the podcast, it is wonderful.

  4. Love,Love,Love Judith Lasater! She’s so relatable with her smart and funny details.

    ♥️I appreciate your podcast and the effort you both put forward to disseminate a variety of information related to yoga. I feel your struggle with keeping up with the podcast as it’s time consuming and probably a lot more work (on your end, Andrea!:) than what we, as the consumers realize. And I want you to know that as a yoga practitioner of 25 years, teacher, nurse and all around big mouth I OFTEN tell people that your podcast is “the go-to” for everything yoga. My hope for the both of you is that people will resonate with your content and pursue other outlets (i.e. Teacher training, yogaglo subscription, etc.) Namaste Debbie
