As a yogi, you may consider yourself a breathwork expert. But my BFF Samantha Skelly wants you to experience the power of breathwork as its own vital modality that’s distinct and separate from your yoga or movement practice. Sam educates us on the difference between integrative and meditative breathwork, the four main breathing patterns she teaches at Pause Breathwork and how to increase our breathing stamina. 

Nerd out with us on: 

🔹Why breathing through the mouth can be good

🔹How to approach rigorous breathwork if you have high vata and/or trauma

🔹The distinct stages of a 30-min breathwork practice  

In this episode, I share some of my own deep resistance to breathwork as well as how I’ve cheated (yes!) in some of Sam’s breathwork sessions. Experience loving guidance and troubleshooting tips. Listen in!

Even though it’s been years since news broke of the Yogi Bhajan scandal a lot of practitioners still question the integrity of the profound practice that is kundalini yoga. Today’s episode is a conversation between my Kundalini University partner Guru Singh and myself in which we answer all of the community’s questions on this topic. This is a full lecture from within the program so I had to split it into two parts to share with you. In Part One we discuss:

🔹The true origins of kundalini yoga and it’s lineage

🔹The fact that nobody “owns” yoga because it is a science

🔹How to separate the teachings from the teacher

Don’t forget to keep an eye out for Part Two where we’ll start with the question, “Is 3HO a cult?” I’ll see you there!

Special guest alert! Dr. Micheline Nader is a Health Care Entrepreneur, Best Selling author of “Leap Beyond Success” and “The Dolphin's Dance,” Executive coach, Motivational speaker, Philanthropist and President of Jesra Foundation. Today, we discuss how to:

🔹 Discover your “Emotional Logo”

🔹 Discern what’s your intuition…and what’s not

🔹 Program your emotions

🔹 Align your mindset to accelerate your success

Most yogis are self aware. But according to Micheline, self reflection is a huge part of leadership, and that leadership can tie into our own personal development work. I learned so much in this incredible episode about how our past traumas inform our present-moment decision making. And I know you will too!

You probably think of social media as “one more thing” that’s stealing your time. Or as “one more thing” you have to DO in your wellness business. But what if instead of another task, it was the ultimate mirror to fuel your personal development and evolution as a healer and leader? Today, I speak with my incredible friend and fellow entrepreneur Amanda Bucci about how to get over yourself, show up authentically on social media, and conquer imposter syndrome once and for all. Listen to learn:

🔹Why defining your “North Star” and creating a boundary document with yourself and your audience is essential for your growth, success and sanity

🔹How to “pre-process” your fear of posting and being seen on social through emotional regulation techniques 

🔹 What to do about mean comments, haters, trolls, and how to use what triggers you to fuel your personal brand and evolution
