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.

Episode 13: Claire Missingham – Finding Flow and Having Faith

Hello, Hello —

I am so excited to share this week’s podcast with you and I can 100% guarantee that this guest has the most beautiful voice/accent of anyone I will interview. My guest is London-based teacher, Claire Missingham. Claire has over 16 years teaching experience and and runs a successful yoga teacher training program having trained over 125 teachers in the UK in the past few years. She is a Senior Teacher at triyoga, Europe’s leading yoga studio, and teaches worldwide. Claire is also a triathlete, competing regularly in Sprint Distance Triathlons after learning how to swim and cycle only in the past couple of years since turning 40!

I got to know Claire (@claire_yoga) well when Jason taught a TT in London a few years ago and I just adore her. She’s thoughtful, funny, and a devoted mom and she has a fascinating life story that led her to yoga — from her family’s practice of Sufism to her years leading a professional dance company, we piece it all together and talk about:

* Her spiritual childhood and the effect it had on her
* The importance of modeling self care and practice time for your children and family
* Her creating magic workshop (which I wish I could take!) and some of her ideas for carving out creative time
* Creating monthly themes for classes (and practicing with the flow of the moon!)
* Shradda or faith — How yoga helps us feel faith through tumultuous times

“Whatever reason people came to yoga in the first place, often the reason they’ll stay is a blossoming flower of faith inside of them. It’s faith that they’re not alone and that there are other people who believe what they do.” — Claire Missingham
