Episode 137: How Speed Gets Trapped in the Body with Tias Little

Yoga and meditation teacher Tias Little returns to the podcast this week. (Tias joined me on episode 102 to talk about perfectionism). On today’s episode, we talk about how our culture of speed affects us holistically and why it’s important–but also challenging–to slow down.

We discuss:

* The new book that Tias is working on and how it’s different from other projects he’s worked on

* Why, from a spiritual perspective, moving fast and checking things off of a to-do list is the opposite of progress

* Which parts of the body are most impacted by our go-go-go culture

* What we need to do to feel like we have more time, both on a personal level and as a collective

* How Tias applies the lessons of slowing down to his asana practice
