    58 Ballsy, Vulnerable, and Funny as Hell, Leigh Koechner

    58 Ballsy, Vulnerable, and Funny as Hell, Leigh Koechner

    Whether you are finding your gift, owning your sh*t or gracing yourself with mindfulness, you will benefit from this conversation with Leigh Koechner. Leigh is a speaker, parenting expert and a spiritual teacher with a Masters in Spiritual Psychology and is committed to being of service by shining her Light and sharing her story.
    Leigh inspires others by being unapologetically who she is – she has been described as being ballsy, vulnerable, and funny as hell – and yes, she tells you to own your sh*t! Leigh relates her journey growing up in a family of 6 children with a mother who was mentally ill and unavailable to her. She explains that when she was a child, she thought she wasn’t even worth her mom’s attention. But she has learned through her life journey to let go of that disempowering belief and use her story to impact the world, teaching others the power of being connected to your authentic self.
    Follow Leigh on her Facebook Live Series “33” as she discusses mindfulness, relationships, self care, FYG & GYG (find your gift and give your gift), and her own unique style of “ownersh*t”, as the parenting expert on Deepack Chopra’s JIYO app, or work with her privately. She is also holding an event in Los Angeles on March 7, 2019 “Embrace your Messy Imperfect Life”.

    Explore Enlighten Evolve  - Celebrating 2018

    Explore Enlighten Evolve  - Celebrating 2018

    Explore Enlighten Evolve  - Celebrating 2018
    Join Sheila as she celebrates a year of podcasting in 2018 with her producer Tim Edwards of The InBound Podcasting Network, the one and only Lisa May of 95.5 KLOS and Kala Maxym of 5 Senses Tastings.  Kala created and presents a very special music and tasting story based on the Sound Mind & Body mantra – Explore Enlighten Evolve.  Listen to the extraordinary music and tasting that Kala procured as Sheila, Tim, Lisa and Kala reflect on the year and discuss the different ways they have explored, been enlightened and evolved.
    EXPLORE:  To seek out new experiences, information, and education with an open mind.  To get outside your comfort zone and try out new territories of mind, body and soul.  As Sheila says, “When I think of exploring I think of that feeling of excitement, and being a little scared when I’m trying something new.  That’s what I call those woo-woo moments.” 
    ENLIGHTEN: Through experiencing and learning, your mind, body and spirit are enlightened.  You discover new thoughts and feelings, new ideas and attitudes, and new places for you to shine.  The result of being enlightened is that you evolve.
    EVOLVE:  Sheila believes this is a life purpose to do her part to evolve in this lifetime, which in turn will help the entire human race evolve.  In order to evolve we must be open to explore and experience new things, new thoughts and new habits.  Through that we are enlightened and see our world differently. 
    We explored so many different topics during 2018 with all of our wonderful guests, what were some that resonated with you?
    The episode ends with a wonderful rendition of “Twas the Night Before Christmas” narrated by Sheila’s dad, Mike Melody aka Grampa Melody.  
    Happy Holidays to All!

    Meditation Master Swami Deva Arhato and Yogi Karen Russell of YogaNoHo

    Meditation Master Swami Deva Arhato and Yogi Karen Russell of YogaNoHo In this episode we continue to explore meditation with Sheila’s guests, Karen Russell, owner of Yoga Noho and Swami Deva Arhato (aka Shashi) – a Master Meditation teacher and Founder of Nirvana Yoga Shala, a yoga and meditation teacher training school and healing center in Mysore, India.
    Sheila recently experienced a Meditation Workshop led by Shashi at YogaNoho and was introduced to several different sutras (practices) of meditation based on sound and light. Swami Deva Arhato or Shashi -- is a Yogi, Shaman and Founder of Nirvana Yoga Shala in Mysore, India. At the age of 16 his mother’s sudden death created a deep desire to understand the meaning of life, and he started on his spiritual path. At the age of 27 he resigned from his job and started traveling to different ashrams in the Himalayas where he visited many ashrams to deepen his knowledge and in 2000 he was renamed to Swami Deva Arhato, which means “Divine Witnesser ”.
    In addition to being a Master Meditation Teacher, he is trained in yoga, massage, Akashic records, past life regression, Munay ki , Tantric Pulsation breathwork , Bardo and many more practices. In 2006 he started” “Nirvana Yoga Shala “ with the main intention to help spiritual seekers work simultaneously on Body, Mind, Emotion and Spirit for the multi-dimensional expansion of human consciousness.
    Karen Russell is a Master Yoga Teacher and co- owner of YogaNoho, but she was formerly a singer and dancer working with legends such as Michael Jackson, Madonna, Bette Midler, Kenny Chesney and Alice Cooper. A dance injury in 2000 ultimately led her to a professional yoga career and since 2005 Karen has been an active teacher, producer, community outreach representative, and owner of several yoga studios.
    Karen and Shashi are also partnering in a wellness channel soon to be launched this year.

    Yoga Nidra: Heavenly Sleep to Wake up your life! Dr Hanna Chusid

    Yoga Nidra: Heavenly Sleep to Wake up your life! Dr Hanna Chusid

    Sheila’s guest is Yoga Nidra expert, Dr. Hanna Chusid. Among her many years of experience and credentials she is a licensed psychologist, a mindfulness and meditation educator, a yoga therapist and teacher and a somatic healer.
    Dr. Chusid magically weaves all of her experience and education together into her healing and therapy and provides clients with sessions tailored to assist with their specific needs, however she calls the practice of Yoga Nidra “the gemstone” of all of these and considers it to be the “medicine of our time.”
    Scientifically proven to affect our biochemical and neurological systems, some of the benefits of Yoga Nidra include deep rejuvenating rest, improved sleep, increased emotional balance and regulation, energy and clarity for effortless right action, healing of trauma and daily stress, expanded and focused creativity, improved immunity, relaxation, intuition and reduced pain, anxiety and depression.
    The best part about Yoga Nidra is that it has no learning curve, and requires no prior experience. You can simply attend a session with an experienced practitioner, bring your yoga mat, blankets and pillow, lie down and relax through it, and reap the benefits. Deceptively simply, yet the effects are profound! Give it a try!

Ditidoc ,

Entertaining and educational

I'm really enjoying learning about peoples lives and their stories. Told in a casual upbeat manner, easy to listen and take away some gems every time.

CooknMC ,

This is my new favorite podcast!

I’ve listened to every episode and find each to be very entertaining and enlightening. They discuss topics such as wellness, charity and "woo woo” which are very inspiring. I now want to try strength training, harmonic products and thermography. Also, the Golden Tampons episode is brilliant (what a great idea)! I have learned so much from the wonderful stories on this podcast and look forward to new episodes every week.
