Messy, Luminous, Being Podcast

There is a moment when our willpower fails us and we run out of steam. And when we're trying to make a positive change in our lives or start a new self-care practice, this can be so disappointing! In this episode, I wanted to talk about motivation. What works, what doesn't, and the new way I'm motivating myself to bring in new practices this year.

So we can step out into the world Whole. That is the purpose behind all of our practices. In this episode, I talk to Katonah yoga teacher Mary Dana about the way Katonah yoga maps the inner terrain as a 'magic square', and ways we look inward to experience the wholeness of ourselves. We also discuss the patterns of nature as they exist on the macro and micro levels within us, and how small practices can be big in the wider picture of our lives.

Suzanne reminds us that there is incredible power that comes with the changes women experience throughout life. We also get real about the messiness of motherhood & menopause. This is yoga at it's best!

Taking care of ourselves shouldn't feel like one more thing on our To Do list. But it can feel like that sometimes. In this episode I wanted to share how I have shifted my mindset around practices that 'fill up my tank', especially at super busy times where lots of output is required!

How can we understand joy as our natural state? How can we connect our individual meditation and yoga practice to the collective, so that we do less harm in the context of systemic injustice? How can emotional sensitivity become a superpower? These are some of the questions that arose in my conversation with Liz Getman. Liz is a yoga teacher, writer and podcaster who talks about our Big *S self and why "my liberation is connected to your liberation". You are going to love this conversation!

Messy, Luminous, Being Podcast

Feeling strong, energetic and able to move with ease are important ways we feel "luminous". That's why I believe Core Strength is a foundation of luminous being. In this episode I talk about why the core is even more important than we tend to think. I also share how we can shift habits in the body, habitual ways that we move, that may be causing us pain.

How can we learn to get into the flow and allow things to be easy? (Or at least easier...) In this episode, yogi Claire Graham reflects on the way we experience the fluxuations of yin and yang energy. She highlights how we are taught if we are not directing things and "making things happen" we are failing...and why this is exactly the opposite to the wisdom of yin and getting into the flow. And she shares her own experience of yoga and mindfulness practices as a way out of this habitual pattern of pushing, forcing, and working too hard.
