CBC Radio interview on Mindfulness and Meditation

I recently had an amazing opportunity to walk back into the halls of the CBC where I spent 5 years working as a journalist. This time, I was a guest on a very cool radio show. The topic? Soul Searching.

The show was hosted by my friend and fellow yogini, Erin Noel. I am so excited to share the link with you and share a bit more of my personal story about what meditation has done for me. As I said in the piece, I have merely scratched the surface and I'm looking forward to seeing where this practice takes me next. You can listen to the full story online here (my interview is around 13:50 mins). 

I hope you like it and if you want to talk further about meditation or yoga ... there's no time like the present (get it?! PRESENT?! Because meditation takes you into the present moment? ok... I'll stop with the bad jokes). :)

Namaste.

 

Connect and Return to Wholeness

I wanted to tell you my yoga story, or at the very least the beginning of it.

Like many, I began practicing yoga in my teens as a way to manage stress and anxiety. At that time these concepts were totally new to me. My mother recommended yoga as a self-care tool. And as many yogis can attest: it was love at first class. 

Since then, I have taken my yoga practice with me everywhere. Life has been, and will continue to be, full of ebbs and flows -- but what I learned from my practice, is that it’s how you deal with those changes that will determine your success.

Before becoming a yoga teacher, I worked hard at being a journalist. I also started to disconnect from my practice. My mind and body paid for it, and in time I found myself returning to my mat for solace. I practiced for peace (worldly and inner); I practiced for solitude; I practiced to find myself again. Through this work a part of me was transformed.
