Gina Caputo has so much to offer to Yogaland: In addition to practicing and teaching yoga for nearly two decades, she’s been on the ground floor of opening and managing three different yoga schools — Sacred Movement in Venice, California, Kansas Siddhi Yoga Studio, and and The Colorado School of Yoga in Boulder, Colorado. Gina also has a FANTASTIC sense of humor. One of my favorite things she says in this interview is, “Be sincere, not serious.”
On this episode, I asked Gina to share her thoughts and stories about self-awareness practice, specifically her recent experience of doing a 10-day silent meditation course. Spoiler alert: She made it through 10 days of silence! But not without some support from a banana or two.

I live in a state of duality when it comes to New Year’s resolutions. On the one hand, I loathe them. I loathe the intense focus on self-improvement and self-achievement that’s emblazoned across magazine covers in the month of January. And YET, I love the idea of taking a moment to pause and reflect on the previous year and to think about how I’d like to live in the coming year,
And so. This episode focuses on three resolutions that really get to the heart of what has created happiness in my life:
* Use Your Yoga Practice to Get To Know Yourself
* Practice Self Acceptance
* Be the Love
What do you think? I’d love to know what you’re working on. And, my friends and listeners who are from outside the U.S., I’d love to know if you feel the same cultural pressure on self-improvement around New Year’s!
