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 118: J. Brown, “A testament to the practice is the person it produces”

J. Brown is a yoga teacher, former yoga center owner, blogger, and the host of the popular podcast  J. Brown Yoga Talks. On this episode, I ask J. about his yoga origin story as well as the current iteration of his yoga life — both online and off. J. also shares how the powerful words he said to his mother toward the end of her life have had a lasting impact on who he is today and helped lead him to yoga. J.’s mother died before he graduated from high school, and what he once saw as a wound he now sees as an event that has filled him with purpose and, ultimately, gratitude. PS: J. had me on his show a few months ago, the link is below if you want to check it out.

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 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.
