Anna Kooiman: The Purposeful Transformation From Maiden To Mother
Welcome to another episode of the DNA Of Purpose Podcast.
In today's podcast, we are shifting the focus to the purpose of parenting. Why? Because becoming a parent is one of the most challenging transformations we go through in our adult lives, and for women, this transformation is a spiritual one, but let's face it. It's also a physical one. Any new mum will tell you that navigating the often vulnerable postpartum period is challenging, and it is during this period we often need to implement a very gentle approach to rebuilding who we are as a parent and as an individual in a purposeful way. This means we need to be purposeful about how we heal our bodies, our minds, and our spirits to adapt to a new sense of who we are in the world. An evolution of our DNA.
Now, it would be fair to assume that today's conversation is one for the ladies who have been lucky enough to conceive, and in many ways that is definitely the focus. That said, I know for some of you listening you may not have children. Regardless of who you are, there are chunks of gold here for everyone, with the most significant point being that childbirth is an epic transformation for a mother, but in many ways discovering our purpose is also a birthing process. The theme of rebuilding our sense of self when our lives change is one we can all connect with.
Today's guest is Anna Kooiman. Anna Kooiman is a certified personal trainer, group fitness instructor, prenatal and postnatal corrective exercise specialist, women's fitness specialist, and international TV host. She is also the founder of Strong Sexy Mammas who helps pre/post-pregnancy women get and stay fit.

Dr. Shyam Ranganathan: Yoga Philosophy & The Practice Of Purpose
Welcome to another episode of the Decoding Purpose Podcast.
Now today's episode is one that I hold close to the heart for several reasons, and that is because this subject, this practice, this process and philosophy is one that has literally kept me sane throughout the craziness that has been 2020. In Fact it kept me sane through various chapters of my life. What I am talking about is none other than the art and practice of yoga.
So what does yoga have to do with our life purpose? In my opinion everything. See just like yoga, I am a firm believer that purpose is a practice, and that a huge part of living with a purpose is all about showing up on the mat. Leaning into the postures, just as we lean into our lives.
Just like yoga, there will be days where the postures flow, and other days where we feel challenged, but as we move through the process, and as we keep showing up for the sovereignty that is our life purpose we continue to move towards an integrated state of being. A state of wholeness and a place of union. A coming together of the possibilities for our life, channeled through us, and through our bodies. Though our purpose.
Personally practicing yoga has been so much more than a form of exercise in my world. I have found my dharma on the mat. As we discuss in today's episode in exploring the nature of yoga - It has enabled me to stop viewing my life as an autobiography, in order to play an active role in creating my own script with the golden ink of purpose.
For all of these reasons, in today's podcast I wanted to talk to someone who is way more qualified than I to decode yoga philosophy. Coming all the way from Toronto, Dr. Shyam Ranganathan is the founder of Yoga Philosophy - a scholar-practitioner initiative - and a virtual school of yoga. He is a field-changing researcher, scholar, author and teacher of philosophy, and an expert in the neglected traditions of Indian moral philosophy, which covers practical questions of how to live, what to aim for, and what we should value-including Yoga.
So without further delay let's get on the mat, and get ready to decode our dharma, through the lens of our limbs, our breath and all the beautiful states of being the practice of yoga provides.
Welcome to the podcast.
