During my father’s cancer battle, I stayed busy. After he died, I refused to grieve for fear of completely breaking down. If only I had Kris Carr’s incredible new book on mourning which we dive deep into in this week’s episode. You may know Kris as a best-selling author and wellness leader, who’s been thriving with stage IV cancer for more than 20 years. But what shook her to her core was not her own cancer journey, but the death of her father to pancreatic cancer in recent years. Today, we connect around both our fathers’ passing and share all our best tips with you around fear, uncertainty, death, and spiritual growth. Learn:

🔹What is a “rupture” and how do we care for ourselves in times of rupture?

🔹The difference between fear and anxiety, and why anxiety is a “habit”

🔹Why anger is an “iceberg” that accompanies grief and how to cope with intense emotions.

🔹How to cultivate faith the unseen and turn your life into a treasure hunt to connect with those who have passed on. 

If you’ve lost a parent, child, or loved-one, do NOT miss this episode with one of our era’s wellness leaders. 

 

GUEST EXPERT: Kris Carr | kriscarr.com | New Book: I’m Not a Mourning Person

Join me as we discuss embodiment from a neurodevelopmental perspective with incredible physical therapist Lara Heiman. Do you love sinking into a low lunge? Lingering in hip openers? Flowing through feel-good movements? (My hand is raised!) While all of this is okay, our most sophisticated practice develops when we prioritize stability over mobility. In particular, when we truly honor the pelvis as our seat of power.   

 

Listen and learn:

🔹Practical functional movement tips to honor pelvic stability in your personal practice or public teaching

🔹Why you and your students’ hips may actually be “tight” due to overstretching 

🔹The importance of touching your body to provide feedback so you can change “the inputs” in yoga postures and find “side doors” that reconnect you to your most embodied self. 

Yes – we also touch on Kundalini Awakening. Don’t miss this spectacular anatomical conversation that touches on all the major trends in the wellness industry right now. Yoga geeks, get your pencils out!

 

GUEST EXPERT: Lara Heimann | @lara.heimann | www.lytmethod.com

A practicing physical therapist and yoga teacher for 27 years, Lara received both her undergraduate and graduate education from Duke University and as a licensed physical therapist, continued her studies with a Post Grad specialization in Neurodevelopmental Training with Recovering Function Organization through Stanford University. Combining her educational background in physiological studies and her passion for movement, Lara completed her 200-hour teacher training. After several years of teaching, she began to notice a void in the inclusion of anatomy in the conversations of yoga training. In the years to follow, Lara began to refine the LYT Yoga Method, combining physiology, kinesiology, neurology, and functional movement patterns to yield a more cohesive movement philosophy.

We hear so often that you should “embody the next best version of yourself” and then “become it.” BUT HOW? Especially when your current reality is *nothing like* the reality you're attempting to manifest. Or there’s zero proof of things going your way? 

Buckle up for this deep exploration of identity, adversity and emotion with one of my favorite conversation partners, Tracy Litt. We talk about practical steps you can take when “rubber meets the road” and your nervous system is in a state of hyperarousal, dragging you into old patterns. We put concrete examples of my own life, marriage and blocks through Tracy’s framework so you can see her method in action. Get ready to learn:

🔹Why affirmations and staying “high vibe” are a band-aid solution to your wounds – and what to do instead. 

🔹How your programmed not to *feel* by society and practical steps to fix this 

🔹What to do if you feel like by expressing big emotions like grief or rage, that you’ll open “Pandora’s box” and never be able to stop.
