    Interview with Hye Jin Kalgaonkar of The Hot Room + 5 Minute Meditation

    Today’s episode is an interview with an extraordinary person in the yoga community— an entrepreneur, yoga instructor, and the founder/owner of the Indianapolis based studio called The Hot Room, which recently opened another location in Chicago's North Shore. Join us as we dive into the ways that The Hot Room is changing the landscape of the hot yoga community-- from their consistent mantra to create a welcoming space, to the creation and offering of one of the region's first POC scholarships to their teacher training program, to the development of their Leadership Institute, to their global wellness retreats. Hye Jin and The Hot Room are also dedicated charitable partners to their community, with a commitment to making the maximum impact by partnering with local organizations like the Patachou Foundation (which cooks and serves wholesome meals to food insecure children throughout the Indianapolis area). In developing a home yoga practice, she recommends creating a space and showing up regularly, so that your practice becomes part of who you are. Get inspired to do more than just yoga classes, and find out what's the come. Plus, enjoy a five minute guided breathing meditation for use in your home practice, led by Hye Jin Kalgaonkar herself. For more information, please read: https://thehotroom.com/ @hjkyoga @thehotroomyoga @thehotroomnorthshore

    S2/EP#2: Yoga for Airplane Travel

    S2/EP#2: Yoga for Airplane Travel

    As you may know, airport travel is by far one of the most relaxing experiences available. What, no? That’s not your experience? You’re not alone. In fact, in recent years, there have been studies on the effects of airplane travel on the body, detailing that the pressure, temperature, and oxygen levels in the cabin fluctuate throughout the flight, and the humidity level is much lower than at sea level. The combination of all of these factors can easily mess with your body’s normal functions, by dehydrating you, and draining your energy through less oxygen absorption. Sitting in tight quarters for hours and hours can also affect your blood flow. Not to mention that the process of traveling itself could involve switching time zones, coming into contact with hundreds of other people, and creating additional stress as you navigate your personal time table and itinerary, against the odds of the chaos around you. In today's episode, experience some simple movements to maintain circulation and comfort as you travel. Enjoy your flight!

    S2/EP#1: Yoga Postures for Digestion + 23-minute Asana Practice

    S2/EP#1: Yoga Postures for Digestion + 23-minute Asana Practice

    Get things moving internally with a 23-minute yoga posture practice designed to stretch and twist the belly, bringing more blood flow into the abdomen and stimulating peristalsis (the alternating contraction and relaxation of the abdominal organs, which pushes the contents of the canal forward) . Experience postures like bow pose, camel pose, child's pose, supine twist, wind-removing pose, and more. It is not required, but you may want to locate a blanket to use as a prop throughout this practice. Make this practice your own as you unroll your mat in your designated practice space, or create room for yourself wherever you are. Let's go!

    S1/EP#12: Alternate Nostril Breathing 1:2 Ratio + 8-Minute Practice

    S1/EP#12: Alternate Nostril Breathing 1:2 Ratio + 8-Minute Practice

    Build upon the foundation of your Alternate Nostril Breathing Technique by increasing the ratio of your breaths to 1:2, making the exhalation twice as long as the inhalation. The focus on the exhalation stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system (the "rest and digest" or "rest and restore" response in the body), and helps to lower both heart rate and blood pressure. It also allows you to override the impulse of automatic breath, building discipline, while making each breath an act of purpose and intention.

    S1/EP#11: Yoga Philosophy: The Moral Observances (Niyamas) + Reflection

    S1/EP#11: Yoga Philosophy: The Moral Observances (Niyamas) + Reflection

    Build upon last week's philosophical, yogic foundation as you explore the second limb of the Eight-Limbed Path, (called the Niyamas), comprised of five moral observances.  Consider the principles of cleanliness, contentedness, personal discipline, self-study, and devotion to something greater than yourself, and then examine these values in your own life. Feel free to grab a piece of paper and a pen to jot down your notes or reflections, or simply sit back to process this information internally, and let's dig in.

Practical + accessible exercises for your mind and body

I look forward to Home Practice With Halle every week - and I also practice regularly in a studio. This podcast offers something I don't find there. Each of these episodes are completely accessible—whether it’s your first time stepping onto the mat (or towel, or carpet, or tile floor, or or or) or you’ve been practicing for years, there’s something fresh and poignant waiting for you, every time you tune in. And I love how PRACTICAL each of Halle’s episodes are — in one episode you’ll learn a simple breathing technique to calm anxiety, and in another she’ll walk you through a few exercises to release pain in your wrists and lower back.

My favorite episode so far has focused on a journaling practice that guides you through identifying elements of your everyday routine that leave you feeling both energized + completely emotionally drained. By the time you have your list in front of you and are like “OH GOD WHAT AM I GONNA DO ABOUT MY MESSED UP LIFE,” she tenderly guides you through an action plan to start shedding the layers that weigh you down + how to begin making deliberate space for the things that make you feel like your most free, best self. I’m not trying to be dramatic but I literally cried listening to this one — she invites a few friends to anonymously read their lists and I just felt so seen and understood.

But the very best part is that ^^all of this is^^ is delivered through Halle’s incredibly compassionate, sincere, and playful voice. You can literally hear her smiling while she talks to you about this stuff - that’s how you know it’s the real deal.

Amazing!

I have been listening to Halle’s podcasts every week, and I am continually amazed that she can explain detailed information and give instruction in a way that anyone can follow, even without seeing her. I have RA, and I have found that many of the podcasts are especially beneficial to those living with chronic pain who may have reduced mobility, especially the savasana and breath episodes. I have already practiced. She is clearly a skilled speaker and yoga teacher who also knows how to use a little humor to her advantage.

really excellent work

I'm grateful to find resources to support my yoga practice at home. It's often not possible for me to get out to a yoga studio, both for time and money reasons, and I actually really like the more subtle components that Halle chooses to focus on, like alternate nostril breathing, or guided savasana. I don't feel like those are things I'd get to experience in most regular yoga classes anyway. Her podcast is well-researched, informative, professional, and warm. I feel like I can hear her smiling :) I would definitely recommend taking a listen.
