The Crack that Lets the Light In with Parham Neal-Pishko
Parham is a 200 Hour Registered Yoga Teacher, with a background in trauma informed yoga, as well as some personal experience in this area. We share on this episode our own experience with trauma and some steps that have moved us in the direction of our own healing.
We talk about what qualifies trauma, why we compare our trauma to other people's, and generational trauma.
She also shares a RECONSTRUCTING FEAR MEDITATION, that is so powerful. Feel free to go back and use this meditation whenever you feel like you need too.
Meditation starts at 78:44, with music and will fade in.

The Subtle Science of Breathing with Kailee Karst, DPT, RYT200
Kailee Karst is a doctor of physical therapy and owns a practice right here in Richmond, VA called Mindful Movement Physical Therapy. She is also a yoga teacher, and has been teaching for a while, but her background in physical therapy gives her a unique way to deliver this practice.
We thought it would be fun in this episode to talk about the science behind the breath (and give us a chance to nerd out on some anatomy!)
So in this conversation we talk about the anatomy of breathing, the effects it has on your nervous system (and frankly, your entire body,) and how that ties into your meditation practice.
