    Getting Serious about Joy with Bradshaw Wish

    Getting Serious about Joy with Bradshaw Wish

    We can all use a little more joy and creativity in our lives right now -- especially after months of teaching and taking online yoga classes. Chicago-based yoga teacher Bradshaw Wish is just the breath of fresh air we all need. It matters not that much of the world is going back into lockdown -- Bradshaw's annual Mariah Carey Christmas Flow must go on! We talk about this upcoming not-to-be missed event, how it came to be, and how creating space for joy and creativity is a deeply important part of Bradshaw's intention as a yoga teacher.

    Unity in Yoga & Embracing Yoga's Roots

    Today's guest, Susanna Barkataki, is the author of a new book on yoga's history and culture called Embrace Yoga's Roots: Courageous Ways to Deepen Your Yoga Practice. This book is a call for all who study yoga to take a deeper look at how we interact with Indian culture, how we use our privilege, and how we can advocate for more equity within the practice we love.

    Andrea Jain on her new book, "Peace Love Yoga"

    Andrea Jain on her new book, "Peace Love Yoga"

    Religious Studies professor Andrea Jain is back on the podcast -- this time to talk to Jason about her new book, "Peace Love Yoga: The Politics of Global Spiritualization." Jain's book explores the connection between global spirituality and neoliberalism. While Jain acknowledges that yoga is healthy practice, she's concerned by the ways in which modern yoga (she uses the U.S., Canada, and India as examples) has been commodified and packaged to encourage complacency (think: "good vibes only" culture) and often overshadows the action that's required to create a more equitable world. It’s an eye-opening interview hosted by Jason. (PS: To hear the previous interview with Andrea Jain focusing on her book "Selling Yoga," listen to episode 200)

Authentic and inspiring

Andrea is like the best friend I never met. I always feel right at home when listening to this podcast. As a longtime yoga teacher I find myself nodding in agreement with Jason and Andrea on so many issues around teaching. Her interviews are top notch with beautiful guests and always invite deeper contemplation on my part. They often serve as inspiration for themes of my teaching. I’m a fairly new listener and can’t wait to dive into the history to see what other gems await. Highly recommended for any yogi!

Podcast

Andreas guests are pinpointed to my interests and the dialogue is always easy to follow and uncanny in so many ways because I would ask and want to know the same. To me that’s the hallmark of a good podcast..... is it informative, engaging, structured , satisfying

Yoga Edu-tainment!!

Yogaland has been a tremendous resource and inspiration both as a newer yoga teacher and long time practitioner. Andrea is a fantastic interviewer. Diverse and meaningful content. And when her husband Jason is on the show it’s a two-punch combo of education and entertainment—their back and forth banter is hilarious. Highly recommend!!
