    # 2 THE YOGA LOCAL Podcast | Can I eat meat and be a yogi?

    Does doing Yoga mean I can’t eat meat, eggs or dairy?

    5 things that Ayurveda has taught me and guides my choices.

    Today we’re taking about two things.

    Ahimsa and Veganuary.

    Ahimsa is the yoga concept of ‘do no harm’ and something we’re working on this week a part of #takecare month. What that looks like in our home practice is making more use of blocks and straps, working into postures with compassion, not forcing, criticising, judging.

    It’s also ‘Go Vegan in January’ month… or Veganuary.

     

    So sit back relax and find out how I’m guided to make choices through the teachings of Ayurveda on this week’s podcast.

    # 1 THE YOGA LOCAL Podcast | Sadhana – What You Need is a Plan.

    The Yoga Local Podcast | What You Need Is A Plan.

    Routine, habits and working in a systematic way to move you towards your goals (spiritual, physical or otherwise) is the topic of this week’s podcast.

    And it kind of relates to what’s playing out for me in my yoga business right now. If you go through my archives you’ll notice I was podcasting well before I opened the physical studio space 18 months ago and it got sidelined as other areas of the business naturally took priority.

    Honestly, other areas of my life continue to take priority and quite frankly unless I find the space, create the habits and make systematic steps, it’s unlikely that picture will change any time soon.

    So, I decided to just start. To just greet the moment. And do something towards making it happen. And hey presto here’s the outcome of that choice.

    The Sweat and No Sweat of a Start Up

    With Northampton Hotpod Yoga Franchisee, Alice Williams.

    To meticulously plan, or go with the flow? What’s best when it comes to starting your own business?

    Is the blood, sweat and tears 😅 a necessary part of the doing-it-for yourself deal? What about pursuing a path of Least Effort?

    Is that even possible?🤔

    YIB Podcast #6 | A Tale On Starting From Scratch

    Hey there. I’m back with a new podcast and before you tune into this one, I’m asking a question.

    What’s possible for you? Do you ever question your potential?

    When you next doubt what you’re capable of, if you’ll ever make it, that you may as well quit your dreams, I want you to think about my podcast guest ö-Sel Nyima who rebuilt herself after a near fatal accident and then went on to build a business she loves.

    This story is pretty incredible and is going to inspire you to get on your A game. Enjoy.

    #3 Yogis In Business. The ART of Remembering

    …with Northamptonshire Landscape Artist, Sara Penrose.

    Ever been terrified of ‘going for it’ in your business?🙀 Yeah me too, frequently.

    In this episode of Yogis-in-Business I talk to Sara Penrose, who found herself at the start of her entrepreneurial journey terrified about trading in the life she’d successfully built as a chemical engineer to follow her second passion – Art. Was her ‘bold’ move to quit her job to ‘go paint’ idiotic like she feared and how did Yoga help her see the bigger picture? 😉

    Tune in to find out.
