Greetings, I am so glad that you are here! I am your host Marie Russel and this is "Yoga off the Mat." During this series, I explore how we can use the philosophy of yoga and the principals from "A Course in Miracles" to transcend some of the seemingly difficult poses -perhaps relationships and situations- that we find ourselves in - off the mat. I'll be sharing practices, lessons, and tools that I have learned (sometimes the hard way) to live with a lot less fear and a lot more love. It's a practice in learning how to access those easy breezy feelings we feel in a yoga class, off the mat and in our lives. It's a practice in learning how to align to the YOU that YOU love to be with.
Trusting our brothers & sisters is not hard, it's just different
In this podcast I share about a friend who is going through a separation and how her practice of this Course in Miracles lesson is playing out in her life: “I trust my brothers who are one with me” is a powerful lesson that we A L L could learn a little something from. Trusting the Spirit in someone is different than trusting their egos - and in these times as we grow more and more out of our egos, we get to unite with others in the space where #onlyloveisreal! SO MUCH MORE FUN!
Listen in and feel the flow of forgiveness direct you as you uplevel your interactions with the humans in your life.
A conversation about “unschooling” with Rebecka Koritz
Learning about Self-directed education, unlearning, and living each day as if you were on vacation with your children. In this conversation Becka and I go deep on the history of schooling, indoctrination and honoring children’s innate wisdom. Given all that is happening on a world scale as it relates to education, this is a must see/listen with one of the world’s leaders on this subject.
Fearlessness is about fearing fear, less
Join me in the conversation around how to approach our discomfort. On the mat, we observe, we honor our limitations and its the same off mat! Fear is a part of life and it's a great teacher, if we learn how to listen to its perspective we get to fear the fear, less.
A Conversation with Danielle LaPorte
You guys, this podcast was such a thrill for me to do! Danielle is an amazing human above all her accomplishments (which are many... including 5 million visits to her website each month!)
We talk about meditation , question the importance of therapy, human trafficking, wrestling with demons, cancer & forgiveness- all through the lenses of deeply committed Course in Miracles students!

Your parents are saints, yes even yours
Healing the parent/child relationship is a major step in spiritual alignment and subsequently growing into the man or woman you want to be. In this episode, Marie Russel breaks down some of the ways in which our relationship with our parents shows up in other aspects of our lives, and also how to shift the energy and move towards a more equal way of existing in this relationship. Wherever you personally fall on the spectrum of parent/child relationship dynamics, be it worst case scenario, best case scenario
