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.

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
