    Seva, or the Yoga of Selfless Service, with Bobbi Paidel

    If you are a yogi, you are probably on the path of self-realization. There are many pieces to that puzzle, and service is a very important one. My guest today, Bobbi Paidel, is a yoga teacher, practitioner, and seeker with more than 18 years of deep studies in contemplation of the human experience.
    Bobbi has devoted her life to living and sharing the spiritual principles of yoga and oneness. She joins me for a discussion on Seva Yoga and why service is so important. We even talk about concrete actions you can take today to start making change if service isn’t already a prominent component of your life.

    The Key to Feeling Safe, with Erika Belanger

    The Key to Feeling Safe, with Erika Belanger

    If you experience fear, worry, or anxiety on a regular basis, you’re the kind to wait for the other shoe to drop, or you either try to control the world (and the people) around you or you hide parts of yourself, then today’s episode is for you. If you’ve experienced any of these feelings, it might be because you don’t feel safe.
    Join me as I talk about the difference between safety and feeling safe, why it matters, why we don’t feel safe, and the key to feeling safe. This is not an episode on how to be more safe, it is an episode on how to feel more safe.

Oops

Sorry, wrong podcast! Meant to review a different one!

So mood boosting and life changing!

I found Erika’s podcast on a gloomy, snowy day. I listened to the episode on how aromatherapy can greatly affect your yoga practice. I choose this one because I have an interest in aromatherapy and also yoga. I loved this episode so I decided to check out more and now I am a frequent listener! Every episode I have loved! I really enjoy turning on this podcast to boost my mood. I go about life day to day and always think about Erika and her guests and how they have changed my outlook on so many things. Definitely would recommend!

This podcast is a godsend !

Just finished my 200 hr teacher training this past may 2022 and found this gem shortly after.

Cannot thank Erika enough for this podcast ! I constantly listening or relistening to episodes and am always filled with inspiration and always learn something new.

As a new yoga teacher, this podcast really facilitates the passing down of the numerous topics in the yoga world. Each episode is a breath of fresh air and I’m so grateful to have Erika and guest share their expansive knowledge !

- namaste my loves
