    Black Lives Matter

    Black Lives Matter

    Today’s episode features three guest hosts, Dianne Bondy, Maite Onochie, and Rocky Heron, all guides on the yogagirl.com platform and voices from the Black community. Coming from different global perspectives, they share their views on how they see the world right now - and how the world has seen them. Offering up their deep wisdom on everything from white supremacy, complacency and allyship, this episode will help you question your own attachments to race, and align your inner values with your outwardly behavior. 
    Dianne is a Canadian yoga teacher who focuses on inclusivity, diversity and accessibility on and off the mat. She is the author of the book, ‘Yoga for Everyone’ and offers online courses and workshops at diannebondyyoga.com. She also has two sons, and shares on this show her fears for them, the pushback she receives when she affirms that her life matters - that Black lives matter - and how we can all show up, as spiritual guides and as good human beings.
    Maite was born in Nigeria, grew up in Spain, and is now living in Costa Rica. She has a background in social anthropology and a specialization in international development which led her to work for different organizations around the world, including the United Nations. She is now about to birth her first daughter, and shares in this show the world she envisions her daughter growing up in - a world where she can be her authentic self, feel safe in her own skin, and see no limitations to her dreams. Maite speaks on growing up in a predominantly white society where she was left not feeling represented, beautiful or enough. To continue the conversation with Maite and learn about her current work as a yoga teacher and doula, follow her on Instagram at @maite_yoga.
    Rocky Heron is a musician and yoga teacher. He grew up in California with his mother, and shares his unique view of being a person of color raised in a white culture and how that forged his identity and allowed him to see multiple perspectives. With a passion to always continue learning, Rocky expresses the need for Americans to educate themselves on the history of their country, and demand more from leadership. You can find Rocky on Instagram at @rockyheron.
    Tune in to listen from the heart to voices that need to be heard, now, and always.

    What Helps You Remember that Your Body is Sacred?

    What Helps You Remember that Your Body is Sacred?

    In this episode, Rachel finds herself in a place of shame after realizing she has gained weight during quarantine. But here’s the thing - she felt no shame at all, in fact she felt great in her body, until she stepped on a scale. What was it inside of her that caused that shift? 

    This pandemic has brought with it a lot of change, and many of us are seeing changes in our physical bodies. The minute we feel shame, we have a tendency to try changing ourselves. But no matter how we try to change, whether it is through hardcore dieting or through yoga and green juice, it will all be rooted from the same place - a place where it is not okay for us to gain weight or be anything other than what society expects of us. We can also approach “changing ourselves” in a completely different way. Maybe it is not our bodies that need to change, but our mindsets instead, and the years of conditioning that society has fed us. Instead of dieting, or judging, or feeling shame - come back to that practice that reminds you that your body is sacred. Do things that serve you. Keep growing. Society has told women to shrink themselves for too long.

    This episode will remind you of the tremendous gift your body is and the wisdom it contains. Your body is divine, your body is sacred, and your body is an asset to your enlightenment - not a hindrance. Tune in to shed the layers and come back to a deep rooted self-love that has been inside you all along.

    You Have The Power To Change Your Life (and here is how to begin!)

    You Have The Power To Change Your Life (and here is how to begin!)

    In this episode, Rachel reflects on the patterns and relationships that haven’t been serving her throughout her life. There is one common thread between them all: she played a role in the decision making. The pace of her life, the people she invited into it, and the work she focused on was ultimately decided by her. What if this is true for all of us? Are we are all actively playing a part in the things that don’t serve us in life? 
    As society slowly starts moving again, there is a lot for us to make sense of – but ultimately, we are in control. The truth is, we don’t have to continue being the same person we were pre-corona virus. We have the chance to implement changes around infrastructure, relationships, self-care, and mental health, and we can water the areas of our lives that we want to nourish and grow. 
    What changes do you want to make to align with everything that you truly desire? Have you noticed anything come up that is keeping you separated from your heart’s purpose? Are there areas of your life that you feel you are neglecting, or not having the hard conversation, or looking the other way? This episode will remind you that if you want a different kind of life, now is the time. If you want to make a difference, start with caring for yourself, setting clear intentions and goals, and aligning with your deepest desires. You may notice that once you come into alignment, everything around you begins to flourish, too.

    Setting Boundaries and Showing Up for Yourself

    Setting Boundaries and Showing Up for Yourself

    How often has your intuition warned you that the exchange (physical or energetic!) between you and another individual was unfair, unbalanced or absolutely exhausting? More importantly, how often have you ignored your intuition to benefit that other individual’s needs before your own? In today’s episode, Rachel discusses the importance of setting and keeping boundaries for the sake of your own mental health.
    It can be so hard to set boundaries and stick to them. As women and mothers especially, we are taught that we are here to serve. But setting boundaries is a radical form of self-care – and when you are at your best self, everyone around you benefits, too. Doing what you need to do to take care of yourself and show up for yourself is a way to heal both yourself and co-dependent relationships.
    This week’s episode will help you take a deeper look into areas of your life that may need some firmly set boundaries and show you exactly how to set them. Tune in to learn one ultimate truth of life: you don’t owe anyone anything that drains you. The world can only benefit from you choosing yourself, each and every day.

    A Garden as a Metaphor for Love, Loss and Life

    A Garden as a Metaphor for Love, Loss and Life

    We are all subjected to one ultimate truth of life: nothing is permanent. Plants, people, jobs, relationships, and homes – everything that surrounds us is fragile and fleeting. In this week’s episode, Rachel has been watching her garden be assaulted by lizards, dogs, white flies, mildew and a multitude of other challenges, and she is suddenly hit with the realization that her garden represents a metaphor for all of life.
    We may not have control over the eventual outcomes, but we do have a choice when we are faced with obstacles or opportunities. We can choose to show up and nourish the plants regardless of the hardships, or we can give up and miss out on the joyful process of the journey.
    This episode will remind you that the magic of being is found in the journey itself, not in the final destination. We cannot let the fear of pain, grief, or loss hold us back from doing what we love. After all, it’s the fragility of life that makes it so valuable. All we can do is immerse ourselves in as much life as we can while we are here.

    A Coming Back to Earth: How to Live a Life that Sustains You

    A Coming Back to Earth: How to Live a Life that Sustains You

    We are on the cusp of a major life transition. We can choose to stray away from ourselves, or we can make decisions that put us in alignment with our soul’s true calling. But how can we know what that calling is?
    In today’s episode, Rachel reflects on the times in her life when she felt actual peace and genuine happiness. She realizes that all of those times have a common thread - they were the times she was able to slow down and come back, again and again, to yoga, to baking, to gardening, to the things that brought her into the present moment. As we have been socially isolating for the past few weeks, many of us have been able to return to the things we enjoy most, and it is sparking a world-wide epiphany. What was keeping us from doing what we enjoy in the first place? Was it a drive for success? For wealth? For social standing? Were we trying to ease the feeling of not being safe in our own skin?
    Whatever is holding you back from the life you are destined to live, now is the time to release it. Tune into today’s episode to make your peace of mind a priority, to put the ‘being’ back into the ‘doing’, and to connect with your intuition before you act. Maybe the true adventure is presence - and maybe the answers to our questions will come if we are quiet enough to listen for them.
