Episode 66: Jessica Berger Gross — The Courage to Choose Happiness

Jessica Berger Gross is the author of the beautiful, moving, hopeful memoir, Estranged: Leaving Family & Finding Home. Jessica was raised in a seemingly typical middle class family in Long Island. But behind the scenes she suffered physical abuse from her father. She made the decision in her late twenties to stop communicating with her parents not knowing that the decision would become permanent. Now, 17 years later she’s written a memoir that Elle Magazine included in their guide to the “best books of summer,” and that Glamour called “gripping.”

Jessica was first introduced to yoga in high school and immersed herself in the practice after the estrangement. She practiced many different styles — Jivamukti, Baptiste, vinyasa — before settling on Iyengar as her chosen path. We talk about how yoga helped her reclaim her body, how it informs her choices now that she’s a mom, and how it kept her sane and inspired during the writing of this book.

Episode 65: Lizzie Lasater — Taking the Longview of Yoga Practice

Lizzie Lasater teaches the pleasure of deceleration through Restorative yoga workshops and digital trainings. Lizzie is the daughter of venerated yoga teacher Judith Hanson Lasater, so I was keen to pick her brain about how yoga was (successfully! without rejection!) passed onto her.

Lizzie also offers great tips for incorporating Restorative Yoga into everyday life. And, as she’s witnessed both of her parents growing older and benefitting from lifelong yoga and meditation practice, Lizzie talks about the importance of taking the longview with asana practice.

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.

Episode 63: Kino MacGregor — Practice Until Your World Changes

Kino MacGregor is an Ashtanga yogi in the lineage of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and is the co-owner of the Miami Life Center in Miami Beach, Florida. Kino also has a new book out called The Yogi Assignment, where she shares 30 days of “assignments” to help you bring the philosophy of yoga into everyday life. Kino talked to me about the surprising story of meeting her teacher for the first time, what it’s like to be trolled online, and how the yoga practice “ferments” with time. You can practice with Kino online on her new channel, Omstars.
