Podcast Ep. 85: Breathe Into It with Yin Style Yoga

Alligators in Oklahoma who stuck their snouts out so they could breathe as unusual cold froze the water around them inspired a yin style yoga practice which asks you to breathe into discomfort. Like those alligators, when the next climate change crisis hits, and it will, we need to first set ourselves up to breathe. While we breathe into it, waiting, we gather strength, so when the ice melts we are ready to take action to help now or address the root cause.

Ease into the practice, and don’t forget to drink some water too.

Happy Holidays! Because there is so much Air element influence happening, I am sharing a quick but powerful breathing practice in this short episode.

Podcast Ep. 79: Yoga and Meditation to Hear Your Heart

Last episode I said I had been getting my post-COVID life figured out. I had not. I recorded this episode the following week and never posted it. I felt burnt out, out of alignment, and just generally useless. I considered abandoning the podcast all together, but I let it sit and Spirit gave me time, then nudged me back to it when I was ready to hear the call. I’m here for you and all the emerging advocates, activists, inspirational leaders, and co-creating changemakers out there, to help you see the gifts that are going to rock this world. This episode was inspirited by the Golden Egg from the Wild Unknown Animal Spirit deck, and invites an opening of the heart. I believe I was called to post this episode today, three months after recording it, because I needed to hear it. Maybe you need to as well.

Podcast Ep. 78: Yoga for Your Activist Muscle

After a brief break to get my post-COVID life somewhat figured out, I am recommitting to weekly episodes for you and all the emerging advocates, activists, inspirational leaders, and co-creating changemakers out there. These podcast episodes are always inspirited by an Animal Spirit, and the appearance of Owl Spirit today was aligned with that commitment, which became especially clear when I linked Owl to the solar plexus energy center. The core-focused practice is yoga for your physical and energetic activist muscle.

Inspired by the way living starfish dance on the ocean floor, this episode’s yoga practice is a reimagining of a sequence I created in 2011. Dancing Starfish is challenging due to ever changing focal points, like trying to look from one star to another on a clear night.
