* Why continuing to make time to attend workshops and retreats as a student is still an essential part of Sarah’s life

Episode 133: Yoga for Life’s Transitions with Ty Powers

This week, I talk with Ty Powers. You might know Ty as the husband of my personal yoga teacher, Sarah Powers. He’s also an incredibly insightful teacher in his own right, a meditation teacher, and coach. Recently, he’s also been leading workshops called Changes and Transitions in Midlife–something that is of particular interest to me now that I’m in my 40s.

Here are some highlights  from our conversation:

*Ty talks briefly about parenting and race and how both of those things have impacted his life

*We commiserate about the challenges of having a spouse who’s an international yoga teacher

*We talk about how things change once a person gets into their 40s and 50s , the process of aging and how to make sense of the changes to your body. And Ty shares why he thinks people are beginning to ask the big questions about life and spirituality earlier today than ever before.

*How,  culturally, we’re missing the mark in preparing for all of life’s transitions, and how practices like yoga and meditation can help us to prepare ourselves for that process

Episode 132: The Art of the Yoga Sutras

This week’s guest, Melissa Townsend is the author of two beautiful books about the Yoga Sutras. Townsend, a long-time yoga student, artist, Sanskrit enthusiast, and psychic, wasn’t always enthusiastic about the sutras. But in the same way that psychic visions come to her, so did the idea to use her art to share the Yoga Sutras. On this episode, I had the opportunity to ask her all about the creative process of her Yoga Sutras art and translations. We’re also joined by Stephanie Snyder, a popular yoga teacher who loves to study and share the sutras.

We have an in-depth conversation about why we all find this work fascinating, talk about their approach to studying the sutras, and explain why the text is so much more than just the meaning of words or interpretations that you read. You might have to listen to the episode to understand, but I promise you’ll be glad you did. It might just change the way you’ve been approaching the study of yoga philosophy.

ALSO: Melissa and Stephanie are doing a free event at Lovestory Yoga on December 14th, 2018. Come by for refreshments, a Yoga Sutras discussion, Melissa’s art, and copies of her books available for purchase. Learn more and register here!

Episode 131: Yoga as a Form of Radical Self-Care

Historically, during times of political and cultural strife, people become more interested in self-care. That means that right now, self-care is an incredibly important and popular topic (to the tune of 9 million hashtags on Instagram!). Self-care means different things to different people. It’s not all bubble baths and mani/pedis (although, there’s certainly nothing wrong with those!)

I think of yoga as a radical form of self-care because yoga builds self-awareness — of your unique constitution, your needs, your strengths, and the parts of you that require extra attention and shoring up. That’s why I decided to focus on self-care for this episode. It’s a live episode recorded at the prAna store in San Francisco, with yoga teacher and astrologer Susannah Freedman and nurse practitioner Caitlin Hildebrand.

We talk about:

* How remembering one’s purpose can be a motivation for self-care

* Teaching yoga as a form of self-care

* What yoga philosophy says about self-care and how we can apply that to modern life

* The line between self-care and self-obsession/narcissism

Episode 130: Timothy McCall’s East/West Journey Through Cancer

One out of three people will face a cancer diagnosis in their lifetime. While a regular yoga practice might not prevent cancer, it can certainly help ease the fear, anxiety, and emotional anguish that can come with it. Today’s guest, Dr. Timothy McCall, is a medical doctor and yoga teacher, who talks with us this week about his road to recovery from throat cancer. His story is an inspiring testimony to the power of a yoga and meditation during hard times.

Timothy shares how he discovered his cancer, how he chose his care team, and which asanas supported him through treatment. He also talks about the benefits of fasting prior to chemotherapy and radiation treatments. And how he both prepared for treatment and convalesced after treatment in Kerala, India with Ayurvedic treatments — and the effect they had on him. You can pre-order Timothy’s book, Saving My Neck: A Doctor’s East/West Journey Through Cancer on Amazon.
