30 minute vinyasa yoga for balancing your 5th chakra

Today’s yoga practice is for balancing your 5th chakra and toning your voice. The 5th chakra is centered at the throat and is how we communicate with the world. The throat chakra is what allows us to express our inner world and our values. We need to learn to speak with integrity and love, which sometimes means keeping quiet. On the other hand, we need to speak up for what we believe in and share our truth. In today’s practice, I’ll help you find the balance between open and closed.

Cooking for Two Different Doshas

Just when you think you’ve figured out your Ayurvedic dosha, you realize that your partner or roommate doesn’t have the same dosha as you. Now what do you do? I think it’s safe to say most of us don’t have time to cook two meals every night…

That’s why in today’s podcast, I’m sharing how to cook for two doshas in the same meal. That way, you can stay sane, minimize your time in the kitchen, and still balance your body and mind.

In today’s episode:
-What flavors and foods to favor for each dosha.
-Three ways to adapt your food to be balancing for all three doshas!

20 minute vinyasa yoga to find fluidity

Today’s yoga practice is about cooling our bodies from pitta season and finding some fluidity in our bodies. One of the things I love about yoga is the sense of grace that it gives as you move smoothly with your breath and body. I wanted to invoke this feeling of moving through water so we could all feel grace, ease, and calm in a busy, fire-y time of year. Enjoy!

How to reduce conflict

How many interactions with others do we have every day? Whether with acquaintances or our longest friends, conflicts happen. It’s inevitable when we all have our own motives, schedules, needs, and impressions about what’s happening in front of us. But I recently got to think about even when we feel most “innocent”, we are co-creators of our situation. That means it’s time to look at our own attitudes and actions to reduce the conflict in our lives.

In today’s episode:
-Why we co-create the conflict (or the joy) that happens in our life.
-Questions to ask yourself if you’re trying to reduce conflict.
-The different ways you can speak up, regain your autonomy and stay authentic to who you really are.

Life as a newborn: from fancy hotel to Berlin nightclub

Ok, ok, ok, there’s a bit of an extended metaphor in this podcast, but stick with me. We’re talking all about why babies are the way that they are in the first few months of life. They don’t sleep through the night, sometimes they eat for 4 hours in a row, and you can never predict when they’re going to sleep. It’s not their fault! The transition from life in the womb to life outside is tough.

In today’s episode:
-Why life in the womb is like staying at the best hotel imaginable.
-What happens when your baby is born.
-How you can best respond to this poor, disoriented baby!

30 minute vinyasa yoga sequence to soften your heart

I’ve been feeling like a broken record in my yoga classes this last few weeks – “open your heart” and “soften your heart” have been the theme of multiple classes. But I think it’s for good reason. We have become very good at building barriers around our hearts – good at creating separation between “us” and “them”. In this practice, we’ll relax the muscles and connective tissue around the heart and shoulders to that we can access the deep sense of peace within.

Why I love Banana Nice Cream

I’m an “at-home” sweetener, which means I’d rather add sugar myself to a product than have it already present. That’s why banana nice cream (i.e., frozen bananas blended to be like ice cream) is one of my favorite desserts!

In today’s episode:
-When fruit can replace sugar.
-How to make banana nice cream.
-My favorite combinations!
