    Yoga Podcast Ep. 50 :: Theo Wildcroft || Post Lineage Yoga

    Yoga Podcast Ep. 50 :: Theo Wildcroft || Post Lineage Yoga

    "Hierarchies are easy. That’s why we set them up. But the hierarchies have such a lack of resilience in response to rapid social change. And we're in a situation of rapid social change - in a profession that is seeing rapid changes." - Theo Wildcroft

    In today's episode, Dr. Theo Wildcroft talks about the identities and labels we attach to ourselves and our yoga practice and how we all benefit from moving from traditional linear models and towards more inclusive and horizontally organized networks.

    The Ashtanga Dispatch podcast is hosted, produced, and edited by me, Peg Mulqueen - along with Meghan Powell. Music is by Marc Pilley

    Yoga Podcast Ep. 49 :: Conrad Anker || Humanity in Nature

    Yoga Podcast Ep. 49 :: Conrad Anker || Humanity in Nature

    As one of today's most prolific explorers and mountaineers, Conrad Anker is a legend in the climbing world - though certainly not limited to it. Because Conrad has long been a source of inspiration for me. From his many summits (including Everest 3x and Meru) to his humanitarian work and activism - Conrad claims not to know anything about yoga philosophy, and yet his life says otherwise.

    In today's episode, Conrad talks to me about the necessity of risk, overcoming obstacles, facing fear, and getting older - as well as the responsibility we have as human beings to take care of each other and this world. (See? I told you he is a yogi - whether HE knows or not!)

    The Ashtanga Dispatch podcast is hosted, produced, and edited by me, Peg Mulqueen. Along with Meghan Powell. Music is by Marc Pilley

    Yoga Podcast Episode 48: David Keil || The Puzzle of Pain

    Yoga Podcast Episode 48: David Keil || The Puzzle of Pain

    As an anatomy teacher and neuromuscular therapist - David has spent most of his career working with people in pain and helping them find a way out. And as the person who literally wrote the book on Yoga Anatomy, it makes sense that yoga students in particular - often with an injury or other physical issues - look to David for answers. At the same time, answers are something David seldom gives. Instead, he’d rather hand the power back to students - encouraging them to do their own exploring and experimentation:
    1. Figure out what position makes it feel better relative to what body position makes it feel worse. So you know.
    2. Give yourself permission to change the way you’re practicing so you can get closer to that position where it doesn’t hurt. Until you understand more, figure out more.
    3. Once things calm down, start exploring even further and widdling things down

    Look for David's 3-D animated kinesiology course for anyone who wants to learn their muscles, functional movement, and how the asanas fit together. Visit https://3dmusclelab.com

    Yoga Podcast Ep 46: Meghan Powell

    Yoga Podcast Ep 46: Meghan Powell

    "Chanting has helped me become more comfortable with myself. And feeling the freedom to open up in a devotional sense, in an emotional sense. I think it’s really released a part of me that I kept tightly hidden - and I’ve become more comfortable with that. And that’s what we’re trying to do, become comfortable with ourselves, with who we are."

    Meet Meghan Powell, the other half of Ashtanga Dispatch and hear about her ongoing journey towards developing her own voice. You'll hear Meghan talk about her experience in Mysore, with her teacher, Dena Kingsburg, and why chanting mantras is her favorite practice of all.

    Yoga Podcast 46 || MC YOGI & Amanda Giacomini

    Yoga Podcast 46 || MC YOGI & Amanda Giacomini

    Today's guests are hip-hop artist MC Yogi and the creator of the 10000 Buddhas project, Amanda Giacomini. MC and Amanda met at a teacher training at It’s Yoga in San Francisco back in 2000 and have been spent the past 20 years, spreading their love of yoga to the masses through their music and art, but also more intimately, in their Point Reyes studio they began as a young couple and still regularly teach today.

    In this episode, MC and Amanda talk about their relationship with the practice, their teachers (Larry Schultz and Dorothy Divack), and especially - each other. Because while MC may claim - love at first sight - their story is no mythical fairy tale. It’s intentional. A conscious choice to align their lives - together.
