    #152: Removing The Burden of Expectation

    #152: Removing The Burden of Expectation

    Tapas, the sacred fire we build with our vinyasa, lights up our inner flame. Whether that be consciousness, aspiration or purification, we honour the harmonisation of breath, body and mind. While in this sense we offer a continuation of ancient vedic rituals, it’s hard to ignore the contrasting desire to fixate on our outer worlds.
    Will I ever reach the full embodiment of this pose? What time should I meditate each day? Should I change my diet? These are all questions that we find ourselves proposing once the power of yoga has enriched our lives. Yet, in this episode, we remember the bliss of ignorance. Or rather, asking the correct questions.
    Because in reality, presence rules over any achievement. That harmony of breath, mind and body is the true state of yoga. Even when we witness the ever-changing nature of our bodies, trusting the process surmounts it all.
    We must surrender control and trust the natural cycle of growth and development. The outcome? Sweet fruits.

    #151: How Curiosity Takes You Further Than Wisdom with Indu Arora

    #151: How Curiosity Takes You Further Than Wisdom with Indu Arora

    In conversation with Indu Arora, precious memories are shared about meeting her teachers for the first time. This moment not only changed her life because of the sacred knowledge she gained, but it marked the beginning of yoga.
    Yoga can be thirty minutes of asanas or it can be the feeling of synchronicity with the rhythms of nature. If anything is true, it’s that yoga is everlasting. Yoga is a state of awareness.
    As the discussion meanders between the modern misunderstanding of yoga and the fundamental philosophies, it becomes clear that the main hurdle with true understanding is our eagerness to dilute the message.
    Yet, yoga is not something that can be endorsed, nor can it be forced upon someone. In this case, the most challenging obstacle between ourselves and real understanding is our individual readiness for the truth. After all, who said yoga was easy?

    #150: From Hedonism in NYC to Meditation in Mysore: A Conversation with Finding Harmony Podcast

    Join this relaxed conversation with Harmony Slater and Russell Case who are the brilliant hosts of Finding Harmony podcast and my long-time friends. This catch up explores generational scars, the evolution of yoga teaching, and even dips into those hedonistic NYC days in the early 2000s.
    That was a time before either one of us had fully committed to a path of yoga and spirituality yet it marked a pivotal point as a 20-something who was on a vastly different path. 
    In this episode, I openly discuss that former self along with the conversations I had to have with my parents and the way this new path transformed me mentally, physically and spiritually (witnessed first hand by Harmony and Russell).
    But not only that, we explore this present day and talk over 1:30 AM meditations, the discipline of writing and publishing a book, asana accessibility, veganism and so much more. 
    Enjoy this joyful catch up between old friends.

    #149: A Meditation for Compassion from Mysore, India

    #149: A Meditation for Compassion from Mysore, India

    While not one of us is a stranger to ruminating about the way we think, act or behave, leaving these thoughts unattended allows negativity to seep into our sphere.
    It’s time to drop any frustrations or shortcomings you may be holding towards yourself. 
    By honoring the practice of mindfulness, you can catch these moments of negativity and plant seeds of positivity. Tending instead to self-compassion can not only improve the relationship you have towards yourself, but it offers the chance to appreciate that we’re all walking a similar path.
    We’re all trying our best to tap into that infinite well of love. And, we’re all finding it just as challenging as the other, too.
    Try a solution. Take a moment to tune into peace with this meditation from Mysore and offer yourself the loving kindness you deserve.

    #148: Ashtanga Yoga with Adam Keen

    Adam has been practicing Ashtanga yoga for almost 20 years and teaching for the last 15, based in London but also internationally. He was fortunate enough to study directly with Pattabhi Jois and has continued his studies with Sharath Jois, obtaining Level 2 Authorization as well as completing the Advanced A sequence in Mysore.
    A humble and open-minded student of yoga asana and yoga philosophy, he has spent much time with the older teachers of the tradition as well as running his own yoga centres both in Europe and Canada.
    British by birth, he retains a sense of humour in his teaching, yet tries to convey clear and precise instruction. Adam is also a vegetarian/vegan chef as well as a trained medical homeopathic doctor.
    Tune in and learn how the pandemic has changed the perspective on teaching large classes. We also cover everything from importance of being flexible, accepting failure and staying true to your own message and values.

    #147: Accepting That The Bad Days Don’t Go Away, You Just Get Better At Them with Robert Mack

    #147: Accepting That The Bad Days Don’t Go Away, You Just Get Better At Them with Robert Mack

    Have you ever noticed that the people who have been to the darkest of places are the same people who end up feeling immense peace and happiness? Happiness and positive psychology coach, Robert Mack, can attest to that.
    Rob dug himself out of a dark hole by seeking out the people, places and activities that made him feel good. This sounds pretty simple until we learn the lesser talked-about fact that being in a deep depressive state can rob you of that knowledge.
    So you have to start from scratch. Start small until the light starts returning. Keep observing what lights you up because, with momentum, you’ll have built yourself some “happiness islands”.
    What also became apparent in this exploration of happiness is that even with the tools–or happiness islands–bad days are inevitable. Despite misconceptions, even yoga teachers and happiness coaches have bad days. 
    Perhaps you relate to the struggle of feeling like you ‘should’ feel happy but you don’t. Let's explore that. Because, what if happiness cannot be found through achievement? What if happiness is tangled in a false belief system?

If you’re a yoga student/teacher the podcast is an amazing recourse!

I’ve never felt so compelled to leave a review than after listening to todays episode #114 A Call To Ahimsa and a Prayer For Peace in Ukrainian. I’ve also never felt so proud to call Kino my teacher. Although we’ve only met in person one time I knew that her gentle yet firm way of teaching worked for me. I can easily understand the teachings of the eight fold path and with sustained practice it gets easier and easier but today was different. Today Kino is raw emotion and it is felt deeply. I sobbed as I listened but thankful to be here listening from a safe place as our brothers and sisters fight a war. I’ve stayed clear of the news before today because I know it doesn’t serve me too be so upset, afraid , angry at the situation but Kino explains what is happening in a way that I can hear it and pray/meditate/practice not only ahimsa but the other limbs of the practice SO that I may serve others without passing on fear/anger etc. I can’t wait to someday visit my teacher Kino in the new space in Miami! Peace and Love to all!

A must listen for yogis

Kino’s podcast is amazing. So nice to be able to receive teachings through Kino via this podcast. Episodes are packed with so much good information on the practice and philosophy of yoga. I often have to go back and replay episodes when I am not doing other things (driving, etc.) so that I can take notes of stuff I want to learn more about. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge with us Kino!

I’m here for the interviews

Kino is a great interviewer and chooses wonderful people to talk with. I’m always so glad I took the time to listen. The dharma talks however are a little disconcerting as she slides into broken English. This seems unusual since her interviews are in a beautiful, conversational, energetic voice. For this reason I’m having trouble recommending the podcast to others. Kino, I would love it if you could work through this with friends and colleagues you trust.
