Dangers of Modern Medicine with Dr. Robert Pearl
How much would you spend to feel healthy and energized? If you were truly sick, you’d probably spend everything you had to feel well again. The USA currently spends about 20% of GDP on healthcare, and if that meant we were all glowing with health and living our best lives, the price would be a bargain. But that’s not what’s happening.
Sleep it Off with Stella Loichot
If you sleep badly, it can create a metabolic storm that leads to elevated stress hormones, food cravings, and increased fat storage. Poor sleep makes it very difficult to manage your weight over time. On this week’s podcast, we’ll talk about the role of sleep in the size of your waistline.
Improve Your Posture with Matt Hsu
Do you have a hunchback? Have high heeled shoes led to shortened hip flexors? Postural imbalances can sneak up on you in a matter of months as your body rearranges itself to new stresses and movement patterns. That’s the bad news. The good news is you can often reverse and correct your posture with self care. My guest on this week’s show will help you get started.
Does Yoga Work for Weight Loss with Lucas Rockwood
Does yoga actually help with weight loss? Does it burn more calories than running or gym workouts? Summer is here, and I’ve been getting loads of weight loss questions. We’ve covered food and nutrition extensively, so this week we’ll deep dive into the mind-body effects of physical yoga practices for weight loss.
Self-Care for Pain & Injuries with Dr. Dan Ginader
My first two years as a yoga student, I was on-and-off injured constantly. I went to sports therapists, chiropractors, and massage therapists trying to find someone to fix me.
A good therapist can be life-changing, but at the end of the day, you and your body have to work together to heal. On this week’s podcast, you’ll meet a physical therapist who will help you rethink pain and injury.
Magnesium, a Love Story with Dr. Carolyn Dean
Magnesium is a favorite among yoga students due to its crucial role in nervous system health and as a muscle relaxant. Magnesium is everywhere, but oddly, many people are still lacking in their daily diets. On this week’s podcast, we’ll unpack the myriad of health benefits magnesium provides.
Magnesium is a central atom in the chlorophyll molecule, an essential part of the process of photosynthesis.
I LOVE EVERY EPISODE!
As a massage therapist and a user of the Yogabody trapeze for years, I’ve gotten familiar with Lucas’ face all over my social media. I’m very late to listening to podcasts “party” but recently started last month. Of course his face popped up (again) as a recommended listen & OMG! I have enjoyed every single episode! I’ve heard every guest say “Wow Lucas, that is a very good question!” Awesome host, very knowledgeable with a kick of charisma, lol! Thanks Lucas, you are making a difference. 🙌🏼
Do you want to live a better life?
This podcast is so awesome. Lucas brings the best of the best to help anyone with whatever you need to live a better, healthier and happier life. There is a huge range of topics that are all so edifying.
Hope and encourage
Thank you for being my link to yoga throughout the pandemic. I learn from your shows,yep, all of them. Even your introduction reminds me to be humble and remain a student-no matter what.
