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
