My Shamanic Life Podcast

In the My Shamanic Life podcast, I share the practices that keep me grounded and connected as a yoga teacher, a Shamanic Reiki practitioner and teacher, a mentor, and a wildlife rehabilitator and advocate. New episodes are posted weekly and include a 30 minute yoga practice. Listen here or find My Shamanic Life on iTunes or your podcast player of choice.

Podcast Ep 37: Fire Up Your Legs in Eagle Pose

Get your talons out! In this episode we explore yoga’s Eagle Pose with emphasis on the legs. Discover its fiery energy inspired by the Eagle card in Kim Krans’ The Wild Unknown Animal Spirit deck. The message from the card was “step into the unknown,” a message I’ve been hearing since returning from Washington State’s Hoh rainforest, where I was with my Shamanic Reiki Worldwide clan on a Wild Wisdom Retreat with Llyn Roberts. Check out these retreats on the Olympic Mountain Earthwisdom Circle’s website.

Podcast Ep 36: Yoga to Get Your Belly to the Earth

I drew Snake Spirit from Colette Baron-Reid’s Spirit Animal Oracle deck, reversed, and looked at what it means to shed the past in a way that keeps us whole and growing. The yoga practice invites you to be snake-like and get your belly to the Earth. You might want a thin blanket under your hips during the back-bending sequence.

Podcast Ep 35: Yoga for Activists in Frustrating Times

After saying a final goodbye to our elder dog this week, I was feeling a bit raw emotionally. Then I pulled Badger Spirit from Colette Baron-Reid’s Spirit Animal Oracle, reversed, and was challenged to consider how I let go of anger and frustration. Luckily I had hit the pavement in my running shoes earlier. The yoga practice offered takes you through a yang flow to shake off some of the anger and frustration you may be feeling if you are at all paying attention, then guides you into the yin of a long-held surrender. You will only need your yoga mat.
