Not just for yogis!

Pursuit of Yoginess has quickly become one of my favourite podcasts. As a yoga teacher and self-employed person, Rudie's guests (and Rudie herself) provide really amazing insights that help me steer toward a clearer path in my personal and professional life.

It's also really helpful to hear the struggles faced by other yoga teachers and entrepreneurs in the community. "Am I the only one failing at this" is something I hear so often from my peers, and PoY goes a long way toward easing those fears.

While this podcast is perfect for yoga teachers, any entrepreneur could gain a lot from it. I've learned a ton from every episode so far, and I always look forward to the next one!

Inspiring

As a new yoga teacher in the Ottawa early, I love hearing from teachers in our awesome community. It’s inspiring to be able to learn from great leaders that work to make Ottawa the best yoga community there is! Many yoga teachers experience a bit of a slump or lack of inspiration one or twice or fifty times in their teaching career, but listening to POY gives me inspiration to keep teaching, learning and growing. Thanks for all you do, Rudie! :)

Ashley Notley ,

Inspiring and so authentic

It is so refreshing to hear from real yoga teachers who's perspectives are all different and relatable. Great podcast! Can't stop listening!
