    09 - Taking the body to its limits... or not

    In this episode we talk about sports, Olympic athletes, and embodiment for achievement at high levels, the limits of our anatomy, whether or not a structured practice is useful, and so much more. This conversation was something different entirely than what I had planned, and it is one of my favorite conversations with A&V yet.

    07 - Space is the Place

    07 - Space is the Place

    In another episode full of deep wisdom worthy of a relisten, Angela and Victor talk about the importance of finding space in our bodies and in our lives and learning to fill that space with more resourceful and alive parts of ourselves. Jumping off directly from our last conversation about Healing, feeling interior space is a central aspect to the healing journey and a friend for our preparations for death.

    The title of this episode comes from a signature line and song title of legendary intergalactic jazz musician Sun Ra. Here's one of my favorite clips of music where he completely deconstructs Billy Strayhorn and Duke Ellington's "Take the A Train". It's wild. Talk about space!

    06 - Our Own Power to Heal

    06 - Our Own Power to Heal

    In this rich episode I ask Angela and Victor to help me understand what we have to heal and what healing is anyways. If you have found yoga to be a healing practice for you, if you've had trauma(s) in your life, or if you're just curious about a deeply gentle and personally empowered healing practice looks like, you will enjoy this episode. You may want to listen to this one a few times. I know I will.

    05 - [Meditation] Presence, Grounding, and Coming Alive (Angela)

    Join Angela for a deep and gentle grounding practice that will help you slow down and find aliveness right here in your body in the present moment. This was recorded in 2011 in Chapel Hill, NC. A special thank you to Molly Drake for organizing this workshop and many others. Molly is the reason so many of us in our area got to know A&V. She's an awesome guide for inner explorations and leads online classes at mollydrakeyoga.com.

    04 - Heads or Tails (...always tails)

    04 - Heads or Tails (...always tails)

    In this exploration we talk about tails -- a centerpiece of their teaching. Building off of our last episode where we talked about developing our observation of the natural world and bringing natural imagery into our practice, we dig deep here and talk about one of the concepts that makes their teaching so real and dynamic and different: the energetic and imaginative side of yoga. By accessing our tails (and our roots) and learning to “try on” different tails, we can open whole worlds inside ourselves and gain new perspectives on our yoga, on being human, and in our lives.
