    Dianne Bondy on challenging racism + spiritual bypassing: triyoga talks episode 34

    Dianne Bondy on challenging racism + spiritual bypassing: triyoga talks episode 34

    George Floyd’s brutal murder has sparked outrage on American streets. Many in the yoga community has expressed solidarity with the protests, and in this special triyoga talks podcast, we speak to Canadian yoga teacher and activist Dianne Bondy about the harm caused by spiritual bypassing, about how the yoga community can challenge the racist status quo, and about what being an ally in the Black Lives Matter movement really means. “It’s great to put up your black out on Instagram, but are you actually going to change your behaviour?”

    “Show up  in a way that is real, every single day,” Dianne said, “Take a long, dark deep dive into who you are and what you believe. Isn’t that the yoga practice?”

    Dianne will be teaching an online charity workshop at triyoga in the coming weeks – the entire proceeds of which go to Color of Change, a racial justice organisation that moves decision makers in corporations and government to a more human and less hostile world for black people in America. Details will be promoted on our social channels soon.

    Faith Hunter on emotional self-care + inclusivity: triyoga talks episode 32

    Faith Hunter on emotional self-care + inclusivity: triyoga talks episode 32

    At the height of the HIV/AIDS hysteria of the ’80s, Faith Hunter’s two brothers were diagnosed HIV positive after being treated for Hemophilia with contaminated blood. The experience brought her closer to her family, taught her how to express herself and, ultimately, took her to the mat. Now, she owns her own studio in Washington, D.C and works to help as many people as possible heal their wounds through yoga – whether they be emotional or physical.

    This episode Faith goes deep on difficult topics like losing a sibling to AIDS, learning to care for ourselves when we are taught only to care for others and what it means to ‘ghost your feelings’.

    We also talked to Faith about being a person of colour in the yoga world, holding more space for those who need it and serving our entire community – not just those who agree with us. It’s a must-listen episode for everyone looking for answers to the tough questions and some inspiration along the way.

    Gahl Sasson on astrology + the year ahead: triyoga talks episode 31

    Gahl Sasson on astrology + the year ahead: triyoga talks episode 31

    Just as he was planning to move on to his PhD in Clinical Psychology, Gahl Sasson’s professor stopped him. He refused to write a letter of recommendation. Why? Gahl was simply too creative for the profession. And thank goodness for that: Gahl left to go surfing in California, stumbled on the world of astrology and the rest is history. Now, he is a trusted astrologer, established author and has been teaching workshops on kabbalah, astrology and mysticism around the globe for over a decade.

    In this episode of triyoga talks, Gahl answers all our burning astrology questions, like: What is it? Where does it come from? How does it affect us? What should we expect in 2020? And what, really, is Mercury retrograde?

    Curious? We’d be surprised if you weren’t. It’s an exclusive look into this age-old practice and the year to come with one of our favourite stargazers. Once you’ve finished the episode, be sure to book your spot in one of his upcoming January workshops.

    triyoga talks episode 19: Lolly Stirk on active birth, pregnancy yoga + the value of community

    triyoga talks episode 19: Lolly Stirk on active birth, pregnancy yoga + the value of community

    Subscribe: iTunes | Spotify | Stitcher

    Lolly Stirk moved to London from South Africa in 1969. Upon arrival, she immediately found herself drawn into the world of yoga and psychoanalysis. She developed her yoga practice under legendary teachers such as Donna Holleman and Vanda Scaravelli, nurturing an intimate connection to her body and breath – both foundational principals of active birth.

    The joyful experience of giving birth to her daughter at home is what drove Lolly to start teaching yoga to pregnant women. Hers were among the very first pregnancy yoga classes in London in the early 1980s. Lolly has since dedicated her life to helping women give birth on their own terms. She is one of the pioneers of the active birth movement, a revolution that is changing the way women give birth in this country.

    In this episode of triyoga talks, Lolly shares memories from the birth of her daughter and how this powerful experience changed her life. She speaks about why pregnancy yoga should be more than modified poses and how her classes and trainings are created to enhance and support the natural changes happening during pregnancy.

    Lolly also discusses reasons why nurturing a close-knit community is so valuable for new mums and mums to be. She says, “This kind of building of community, particularly in a yoga studio is an incredible thing to do. It can become a bit anonymous if they don’t get that human factor of relating to each other and seeing the other person. It’s a wonderful thing.”

    Click here to join Lolly at her next active birth and hypnobreathing monthly workshop open to mums and their birthing partners at triyoga Chelsea.

    Mia Togo on doing the inner work: triyoga talks episode 30

    Mia Togo on doing the inner work: triyoga talks episode 30

    At the height of her career at YogaWorks in Los Angeles, Mia Togo decided to move to the other side of the world with little more than her passport and a promise: love. Now, she speaks to us about how to overcome fear, what yoga looks like in London vs. America, and how teachers – wherever they may be in the world – can and should empower their students. It’s a big one.

    When talking about the differences she’s noticed here in the London yoga community, she says “Here, people think advanced is hypermobility [even though] their bodies aren’t meant to be in [those poses]. Advanced [yoga] is the quality of your mind, the refinement of your breath, the clarity that you can bring when you’re in the asana itself.”

    And her final bit of advice to teachers? It’s simple: “Teach students to trust themselves.”

    Mia teaches vinyasa flow yoga at triyoga Camden and Chelsea on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Click here to see Mia Togo’s schedule.

Vicky Fox on Yoga for Cancer

An inspirational interview with Vicky Fox which really resonated with me. I was drawn to yoga 21 years ago after a diagnosis of breast cancer and have since become a teacher. I've just discovered this fascinating podcast after signing up to do her Yoga for Cancer teacher training. It's made me even more certain that this is an area of yoga that I want to specialise in. Can't wait to start in January 2020!
