🔹 The movements yoga is “missing” and what to do about it

🔹 How you should be weight-lifting with easy ways to start

🔹 Is yoga cardio? And how much cardio do we need?

EPIC conversation alert!!! Today I get *in it* with one of my visionary friends, Katie Silcox, founder of Shakti School. Through concrete examples like online dating, your dog getting bitten, your husband’s obsession with drainage and house maintenance, Katie and I weave deep lessons on tantra, polarity and somatics. Listen and learn:

🔹Why somatic work alone isn’t enough and can become a “feeling trap” 

🔹How massive amounts of shakti energy are stored beneath your shame

🔹Exactly what releasing irritation looks like from a “yogic” perspective taking into account tantric and buddhist teachings.

Buckle up, yogis. This conversation might take you places you never thought possible.

I bet you thought the goal of yoga was to achieve samadhi or enlightenment, right? WRONG. More precisely, yoga is about dismantling the 5 kleshas (obstacles) which prevent us from realizing that samadhi (bliss) is our natural state. Deep dive with me into eleven critical epithets: Verses 2.1 to 2.11 of the Yoga Sutras, where I’ll give the often overlooked kleshas - the obstacles and afflictions that cause suffering - the attention they deserve. Discover:

🔹 Why the concept of avidya (ignorance) is often mistranslated and misunderstood 

🔹 How the kleshas aren’t created equal, but actually function in a hierarchy 

🔹 How to “grade” your kleshas using Patanjali’s framework   

🔹 Why the kleshas likely won’t be eliminated (no matter how much you practice), but how you can leverage them to become more discerning in your day-to-day life. 

If you enjoyed the episodes where I’ve read the Yoga Sutras aloud, you will love this nerdy episode.
