    Episode 15 We Talk to Yoga Journal About The Changing Face of Yoga

    I never thought I would see the day when I would talk to Yoga Journal. As most of you may know I have had a long difficult and painful relationship with Yoga Journal.  I recently received a heartfelt apology from the editor and I think it is time to turn over a new leaf. If people and organizations are willing to change I am open to discussion.

    In today's podcast,  Dee and I speak to the Brand Creator and Editor in chief of Yoga Journal, Tracy Middleton about the changes in what one of the biggest and most influential Yoga Magazine is doing to open the dialogue around equity in yoga. What's the future of Yoga Journal?

Can’t stop listening!

I’ve been listening to this podcast non-stop! Every episode so far has kept me engaged and wanting more. Dianne and Dee have a great dynamic and are informed, intelligent beings that I love to learn from. From the episode on Body Image to How wellness got Whitewashed, these lived experiences are extremely important to talk about. Learning about Canada’s black history also blew my mind. I’m in.

Love this podcast!

Every time I listen to an episode, I think, “Okay, THIS is my favourite episode” and then the next one comes out and that becomes my new favourite. Dianne and Dee are so knowledgeable, thoughtful, and fun to listen to. The episode with Irene Moore Davis blew my mind and taught me so much about Canadian history, especially in my town. This is my new favourite podcast and I look forward to each new episode.
