Podcast Ep 74: Playful as an Otter Yoga

When the Otter card showed up as inspiration for this episode, it was a call for you to tap into childlike innocence as you approach your yoga practice, and your life. You’ll get to be playful in some variations of common poses and deepen without overthinking.

Podcast Ep 59: Your Mind is the Big Sky

Meditating on your mind as the sky opens your awareness to your crown chakra and the expansiveness of your consciousness. Inspired by the Cosmic Egg card in The Wild Unknown Animal Spirit deck by Kim Krans, let this episode’s guided meditation bring you into that awareness. You’ll only need a comfortable and supported place to sit to be the big sky.

Podcast Ep 57: Making Space for Really Loving Yourself

My theme for February is really loving myself. When the Firefly card from Kim Krans’ The Wild Unknown Animal Spirit deck showed up asking what I was doing to be ready for a creative burst, I wondered what I would do when that flash was over. Through lots of practical magic in January, I’d opened up both time and physical space for some creative projects but, if I am really loving myself, I need space for feeling low energy or uninspired, too. This episode’s yoga practice is perfect for those times. Grab a yoga strap or a creative substitute and unroll your mat.

Podcast Ep 54: Learning to be Uncomfortable in Yin Yoga

There is power in being uncomfortable. Panther came out of Kim Kran’s The Wild Unknown Animal Spirit deck before I recorded this episode, which portends unexpected havoc. While it is uncomfortable, we cannot grow when we are stagnated. Learn to welcome the wild unholiness and discomfort of change with a Yin Yoga practice that asks you to sit with everything that comes up. You might want a folded blanket or cushion to support your hips in the seated poses.

I see your deep desire to change the world but understand it often feels more like dreaming than doing. You are ready to step up. Join me on Monday, January 27, 2020 at 7:30pm EST / 4:30pm PST for a free webinar. I’ll share the shifts I made to take impactful aligned action in both my business and wildlife advocacy, and how I choose an extraordinary life every day. Register here to get the webinar link.

Podcast Ep 45: Resting With Crocodile

In Yoga’s mythology, Makara is a huge crocodile-like creature and the ocean god Varuna’s steed. The pose dedicated to Makara is crocodile pose. Makarasana is a relaxing pose that releases tension in the low back and invites deep diaphragmatic breathing. When I pulled Crocodile from Kim Krans’ The Wild Unknown Animal Spirit deck, with an energy of submerging to rest and gather energy, I had to offer you a short restful practice which begins and ends in Makarasana.

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 11: Yin yoga practice to soothe the heart

This week I said a final goodbye to one of my dogs and experienced the death of a young deer the team at North Country Wild Care and I rescued too late. I recorded this episode with a heavy heart but allowed myself to be vulnerable and share. I sequenced a 30-minute soothing Yin Yoga practice to caress the heart and allow the emotional hurt to be there, held but not squashed down. A few folded blankets or cushions can add extra support during these poses.

Podcast Ep 10: Yoga to Connect with Fire and Air in Eagle Pose

When the Eagle card from Kim Krans’ The Wild Unknown Animal Spirit deck came up today I was taken by surprise. I’ve been battling depression and anxiety, partially seasonal and partially due to dread and helplessness over the imminent destruction of the National Butterfly Sanctuary for a section of unneeded wall on the southern border of the U.S. Lifting to meet Spirit like Eagle felt impossible while I was feeling heavy. But the Universe knows that if I get into my body and start to break apart an asana, I can shift out of feeling powerless, even if it’s just for a little while. I dropped into Garudasana (Eagle pose) and broke it down for you, focusing on the interplay between the fiery core work and keeping your heart open for air, in a 40-ish minute practice. You won’t need anything but your mat.
