    160 | You Deserve Rest | Feat. Tracee Stanley

    160 | You Deserve Rest | Feat. Tracee Stanley

    How many times have you heard yourself saying “HARD WORK.” Rather let me rephrase that, how many times have you heard me say, “I AM WORKING HARD''. I never once stopped to bother and think, “Why can’t the work be work but not hard all the time?”. Like why is it I have to create even its tone that it’s difficult? Tracee Stanley blew my mind when she brought me to the realization that it doesn’t always have to be hard. That we, in fact, deserve to rest.
    How many times did I have to burn out to realize this? (3… 3 is the correct answer in case you were curious...lol) This week on the podcast, I am thrilled to have Tracce back on the show. We met a few years back on the festival circuit. I had heard so much about her but never had the opportunity to practice with her; in fact, I had never even done a nidra before. But when I did, WOW. Just wow. In this episode, we talk about her new book Radiant Rest. It has been such a treat to see her put all her magic into this book. I have already taken a deep dive into it, and I love it so much we’re using it for the next book club in May, so be sure to grab your copy. I know her magic will do wonders for us all. Listen and enjoy.

    159 | Navigating as a Human | Feat. Jack Workman

    159 | Navigating as a Human | Feat. Jack Workman

    It’s HARD being human!!!!! Am I right? Navigating what labels society assigns you, navigating the way that others see your physical body (and the way that you see your physical body), navigating any depression or anxiety that comes along with that... You get where I’m going with this, right? I recently had an email come through thanking me for being so courageous and real in my storytelling. It’s important in my teaching and leadership to be authentically me so that others feel seen and represented and not alone. I’m here to share hope and show that there is a path forward towards being our true selves.
    This week on the pod, I connect with @jackworkmanyoga, a fellow queer yogi. He brings courage like no other on this episode. He had a recent IG post about his own experience with body image issues and I knew I had to hear him speak more of his truth. Like many of us, Jack has gone through ups and downs, but his reliance shines through. Yoga teaching is not always as glamorous as some people might assume. Listen for yourself... Enjoy the chat with Jack, yogis!

    158 | Hello Shadow Self | Feat. Mia Togo

    158 | Hello Shadow Self | Feat. Mia Togo

    We call them stories. Or shadows. Sometimes even trauma. We give many names to our life experiences, the ones that have shaped us for the better or worse. Mine include a laundry list of drugs, alcohol and self-inflicted harm. I did most of that, because I truly believed I didn’t deserve any better. I felt that way for a long, long time until I decided to get to know my pain. My shadow and trauma work started in yoga. The practice gave me the container to feel safe enough to hold what was there. As a teacher, I never want to force a student into a pose or position they’re not comfortable or ready for, physically or emotionally. Holding space for all of that requires a certain kind of mindset!
    Mia Togo @miatogo and I have been in each other’s orbit and I finally caught up with her to chat and go deeper into the wide world of shadow work. She has a unique gift of creating a container, whether that be in person or in online environments where she helps people feel safe to go in and excavate what is going on inside. On this week's podcast, she and I dive deeper into shadow work and how important this work is. Given the context of our world right now and that we’ve all just been through something that shook up our lives, I found that this episode gave me hope. Listen and enjoy, yogis.

    157 | Yoga Teachers Should Thrive| Feat. Celest

    157 | Yoga Teachers Should Thrive| Feat. Celest

    Knowing that I’ve found my passion and what I believe to be my dharma has been a gift; however, I know for a fact that I wouldn’t have made it this far without the guidance of my mentors. I’ve studied myself long enough to know that I can only get so far on my own. When I want to go further, I call on the support and insight from those who have walked the path before me. I not only call on my mentors, but I also call on those loved ones who will call me out on my shit and help keep me honest. I can happily say, “I LOVE WHAT I DO” every single day of my life -- even when it’s hard! This is my dharma and it is purposeful.
    Celest Pereira feels the same. I don’t know if she knows this or not, but she was a mentor to me before we ever spoke. Watching her be her authentic self has given me permission to do the same. She’s no stranger to the yoga show, and we’re both super passionate about helping our fellow yoga teachers turn their passion or niche into a decent living. She has this way of being inspiring even when she’s not trying to be. If you’re a yoga teacher, listen to this episode! If you know a yoga teacher, send them this episode! Celest and I jump into why yoga teachers should adopt a thrive-mindset towards their business. Sometimes all we need is a little nudge in the right direction to get moving. Listen and enjoy, yogis.

    156 | Zoom Yoga Injuries | Feat. Dani Ibarra

    156 | Zoom Yoga Injuries | Feat. Dani Ibarra

    I’m injured…. again. Yoga isn’t feeling good in my body (at least flow yoga anyway). I have a little bit of blame on ZOOM, but I do take full responsibility for my current injuries. It’s my own dang fault for not learning when to take a break. I often preach to students that you can make the practice yours by adjusting the intensity and I have never really thought about making that choice in my teaching practice. Why not give myself permission and lead by example? I feel like my injury came at the right time since I’m in an online teacher training that’s a bit slower than my normal vinyasa-based flow stuff and it’s slowing me down. Forcing me to pay attention.
    Dani Ibarra is one of those humans I call a COVID blessing. She’s one of the main teachers in a teacher training program that I am a part of right now. She’s a seasoned teacher who studied with someone whom I have always admired over my yoga career, Maty Ezraty. In this episode of SEEKER + SAGE she points out how we need to adjust both our practice and our teaching to fit the landscape of what the world is right now. Like me, she too has some COVID injuries. We get deep into how to take care of yourself as a teacher and a student participating in ZOOM yoga. Tune in and listen to the wisdom of my sister from another mister!

    155 | The T Word, Trauma | Feat. Jennifer Harper

    155 | The T Word, Trauma | Feat. Jennifer Harper

    The T-word is out this week! TRAUMA... We've all got it. And although it's sometimes hard to talk about, it's important to acknowledge it. I'd never heard of Jennifer Harper before, but this wonderful human is helping kids and adults unpack this thing we call trauma. And she is getting us a bit more in tune with what's going on inside of ourselves. This is one of those episodes where I sat back and took notes the entire time! Listen, learn, and enjoy!

Can’t Wait For More

As a teacher I find it’s sometimes hard to find teachers you can resonate with in a flood of teachers today. I love this podcast. It’s real, Danni talks about real things, real people and where yoga is and was and where it’s going. And as a teacher he offers other teachers perspective and great insight when it comes to teaching and being a student of yoga, through his interviews. I’m blessed I came across this. First yoga podcast I’ve ever played more than one episode. If you’re a teacher check this out! If you’re a student who’s curious about yoga check it out! So blessed I’ve found this. Thanks Danni!
