Episode 82: Restorative Yoga as Radical Self Care With Judith Hanson Lasater and Lizzie Lasater

Judith Hanson Lasater and her daughter, Lizzie Lasater, have been on the podcast separately before. On episodes 64 & 65 I focused on their backgrounds and on the mother-daughter connection. This time, I wanted back up and simply ask the question, “Why restorative yoga?” Why now? And why isn’t “regular” hatha yoga restorative enough? One response, in particular, surprised me — seeing restorative yoga as a radical act of self care in a society that’s so filled with aggression and violence.

Episode 73: How Talking About Adversity Inspires Positive Change

According to psychologist and author, Kelly McGonigal, listening to someone else’s story of resilience and overcoming adversity is has a powerful effect on the listener. Simply hearing someone’s “restorative narrative” can inspire strength and courage in you. In addition, if you’re the person doing the storytelling about your own traumatic event, and you both acknowledge the difficulty as well as the how it transformed you in positive ways, you are more likely to have better health outcomes. In this light, on this episode I share my breast cancer story and the four profound ways it has changed me three years later.

Episode 28: Andrea Ferretti – Reframing the Way You Think About Stress

On this episode, I reflect on one of the most important reads of the year for me — Kelly McGonigal’s book, The Upside of Stress. A psychologist and yoga teacher, Kelly’s book is filled with compelling research about how the way we think about stress may be more harmful for our health than stress itself!

I offer three important takeaways from the book including:

* The Challenge Response as a way to prime us for stressful events
* The Tend & Befriend Response as a way to help us reach out and connect to others
* How we can get better at stress
