✨ MY BOOK YOGA LIFE IS OUT! brettlarkin.com/yogalife

We’re on the precipice of the New Year. It’s the perfect time to reflect on what yoga means to you, how to start or (re)start your practice… and convince everyone you love to do the same. It’s also the first episode in which I am a published author with my book YOGA LIFE available worldwide! To celebrate *all the things,* I invited my friend and celebrity life coach Lauren Zander to join me on the podcast this week to chat about:

🔹 Why coaching and yoga work so synergistically together, and why you need both
🔹 How to kickstart your yoga or “pitch” yoga to those around you who may be skeptical about getting on a mat (especially if they’re older, think they’ll “suck” or are “inflexible”)
🔹 The history of modern yoga: proof that its always been evolving and why you must claim the permission slip to personalize your practice in 2024.

I also share dozens of “Yoga Habits” from my book so you can slip yoga in on New Year’s Eve and Day, even if you’re traveling, cooking or can’t make time for a longer practice! Get ready for some fun.   

 

GUEST EXPERT: Lauren Zander, Founder of Handel Group and InnerU https://www.inneru.coach/life-coaching-products/ 

Lauren Handel Zander is a celebrity life coach, public speaker, and the CEO & Founder of Handel Group®, an executive life coaching company based in New York City.

Candid conversation alert! Cozy up with me and my friend Sarah Ezrin where we talk about teaching yoga, being moms and why we strengthen our nervous systems by visualizing our children falling from the monkey bars at playgrounds while performing pranayama techniques (not kidding!). 

Sarah started out working in the adrenaline-fueled film industry. Then, took that “hustle energy” into her yoga teacher career, resulting in burnout. After much heartbreak and loss, she wasn’t sure she ever wanted children, but now applies ancient yogic wisdom to motherhood. This is a beautiful listen for any yoga teachers, prospective parents or those with kids at home.    

 

GUEST EXPERT: Sarah Ezrin | Buy The Yoga of Parenting book

Sarah Ezrin is a world-renowned yoga educator, content creator, and mama of two boys. Sarah writes extensively on the subjects of yoga, parenting, and mental health, often interweaving these themes.

Does your daily practice feel stagnant? Or like “hard work”? Maybe you’ve lost the joy. Or you’re struggling to find consistency. Perhaps yoga and meditation feel like another thing “to do.” If any of the above describe you, this episode is here to knock your socks off. It’s time to redefine the idea of “sadhana,” shift into devotion, realize you’re not “alone” when you practice, and to make your time on the mat the highlight of your day.

Listen and learn:

🔹The etymology of the word “sadhana”
🔹How this concept evolved in the Gita and Bhakti Yoga, and ways to use these lesser-known aspects of sadhana for your benefit
🔹Why revitalizing your home practice requires introspection, a hefty dose of pleasure, and does not need to take as much time as you think
