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.
