Freedom through Limitation with Insiya Rasiwala-Finn and Eoin Finn

Freedom through Limitation with Insiya Rasiwala-Finn and Eoin Finn

November 16, 2020

“Yoga is a feeling, not just a shape.” So goes the mantra of Eoin Finn, founder of the yoga system Blissology. Today, we sit down with Eoin and his partner, Insiya Rasiwala-Finn, a Yoga, Ayurveda, and wellness expert. Here, we explore vital themes such as cultivating the habit of happiness, adopting a slower pace as a means to reconnect, and how to tackle our society's overwhelming trend towards disconnection. 

 

In this episode, Insiya illustrates the healing power of Ayurveda, a means to live life in tune with nature. This ancient science teaches us that true freedom is only found through our limitations. We close this invigorating conversation with a look into how and why we continue to innovate the practice of yoga.

Beyond Hierarchy with Namita Kulkarni

Beyond Hierarchy with Namita Kulkarni

October 26, 2020

Today, we journey to Mysore, India to chat with yoga teacher, world traveler, and writer of the blog ‘Radically Ever After’, Namita Kulkarni. Our conversation centers around the theme of hierarchy and how it reveals itself within society. Our current global pandemic has only risen a magnifying glass to these pressing concerns including violence towards women, casteism, and white supremacy.

 

We also reflect on how hierarchy shows up in yoga culture sparking a discussion on the importance of finding a yoga teacher who “points you to your own path” rather than simply showing you his/her own. Ultimately, in building a student-teacher relationship based on mutual respect, you are able to become the most "present and centered version of yourself.”

Drastic environmental changes and the lingering pandemic push us to reimagine a new normal. On that quest, we sit down with wellness entrepreneur, Jeff Krasno - founder of Wanderlust, CEO & Founder of Commune Media, and the host of the Commune Podcast. Through these mindful endeavors, Jeff strives to share the impact of like-minded community and hopes to enable others to take wellness into their own hands.

Wake up to the Sacredness of Life with Kia Miller

September 11, 2020

“Life begins when we wake up to the sacredness,” when we are called to “live like an awake person.” In these introductory lines, international yoga teacher and founder of Radiant Body Yoga, Kia Miller, shakes us to recognize the luminous possibilities held within the vastness of our inner worlds. We discuss how to approach meditation from a place of open curiosity, why we must take radical responsibility for ourselves and our own actions, and the fundamentals of both Kundalini and Kriya yoga. By intimately sharing with us her path to yoga, Kia helps us understand that continually showing up on our mats is one of the purest forms of activism.

Yogini, sage, and adventurer, Deborah Koehn, unveils the foundations from which she crafted her guiding mantra, ‘Nature as Teacher’- a derivative of a lifetime spent traveling throughout the remote landscapes of our world, from the high Andes to the Himalayas.
