Transcription

00:00:27.600 --> 00:00:30.400

Hello, this is Tim. And this is Vie and we're back.

00:00:31.100 --> 00:00:34.400

We are back. Yep. It's been what nine months. It's been

00:00:34.400 --> 00:00:37.400

yes since October.. Yeah, we've

00:00:37.400 --> 00:00:40.500

had a lot of things going on. So we were stuck not

00:00:40.500 --> 00:00:43.600

being able to do this. We sold our property we moved

00:00:43.600 --> 00:00:43.900

we

00:00:44.600 --> 00:00:47.500

Didn't sell the property we moved back. We sold property

00:00:47.500 --> 00:00:50.800

we moved. We didn't sell the property we moved back and now

00:00:50.800 --> 00:00:52.400

we sold the property. Yep. For good. So we had to do

00:00:55.500 --> 00:00:58.500

a lot of packing unpacking getting things

00:00:58.500 --> 00:01:01.300

ready and now we're done and we're

00:01:01.300 --> 00:01:04.800

back in podcasting world. Yes,

00:01:04.800 --> 00:01:07.900

so we'll be going back to doing every

00:01:07.900 --> 00:01:10.300

Thursday every Thursday and it's going

00:01:10.300 --> 00:01:14.200

to be on ayurveda and yoga and it's going

00:01:13.200 --> 00:01:15.700

to be marvelous.

00:01:16.500 --> 00:01:19.500

It's gonna be way more fun than it

00:01:19.500 --> 00:01:22.500

was. Yes, no more having to work on

00:01:22.500 --> 00:01:25.600

selling the property less vata derangement

00:01:25.600 --> 00:01:28.300

Yes. Less. Not no

00:01:28.300 --> 00:01:31.400

vata derangement just less so with that

00:01:31.400 --> 00:01:35.400

We're going to start a little series on ayurveda

00:01:35.400 --> 00:01:38.100

for mental health, and so we're going to

00:01:38.100 --> 00:01:40.700

start that just after this message.

00:01:41.800 --> 00:01:43.500

Stay tuned. We'll be right back.

00:01:52.600 --> 00:01:55.700

And we're back and we left a subliminal

00:01:55.700 --> 00:01:59.400

message in the music that said share our

00:01:58.400 --> 00:02:01.600

podcast with all your

00:02:01.600 --> 00:02:04.800

friends and sign up

00:02:04.800 --> 00:02:07.800

to listen to all our future podcasts

00:02:09.200 --> 00:02:12.500

And give us the greatest reviews ever ever.

00:02:13.600 --> 00:02:16.300

So what I want to do before we start talking

00:02:16.300 --> 00:02:19.700

about yoga and ayurveda is a little bit about what

00:02:19.700 --> 00:02:20.600

we've done.

00:02:21.400 --> 00:02:24.600

So we sold our work live. We're no

00:02:24.600 --> 00:02:26.000

longer there we closed our studio.

00:02:26.800 --> 00:02:29.800

We haven't opened

00:02:29.800 --> 00:02:30.300

a studio.

00:02:31.600 --> 00:02:34.800

We've moved we're no longer in Saint Pete, which is

00:02:34.800 --> 00:02:38.200

a great great town. But it changed so

00:02:37.200 --> 00:02:41.500

dramatically in the last couple years. It's huge

00:02:40.500 --> 00:02:44.200

compared to what it was. We're now

00:02:43.200 --> 00:02:47.200

living a little smaller life

00:02:46.200 --> 00:02:49.700

in a little town

00:02:49.700 --> 00:02:52.100

trying to figure out what we want to be when we

00:02:52.100 --> 00:02:55.800

grow up. Exactly. That's what it feels like. Yep. We

00:02:55.800 --> 00:02:58.500

got a puppy. Yes. Because we're not traveling anymore.

00:02:58.500 --> 00:03:01.700

Yes. We got a wonderful puppy named Freyja. She

00:03:01.700 --> 00:03:04.600

is what next week

00:03:04.600 --> 00:03:07.400

Well when this podcast is out, she's gonna be three months

00:03:07.400 --> 00:03:10.600

old. Yeah, and she's a border collie mix

00:03:10.600 --> 00:03:13.500

we don't know what exactly she is yet

00:03:13.500 --> 00:03:16.100

or how big she's gonna be. She looks like

00:03:16.100 --> 00:03:19.700

she's gonna be big. Yes. We got her from a Kill shelter. Yeah, so

00:03:19.700 --> 00:03:20.000

which

00:03:20.800 --> 00:03:23.100

Was bad that it's a Kill shelter, but

00:03:23.100 --> 00:03:26.300

it's good because they don't do anything unless they

00:03:26.300 --> 00:03:29.400

really really have to yes, so they hold

00:03:29.400 --> 00:03:32.400

on to dogs and cats for a very long time and

00:03:32.400 --> 00:03:35.400

take care of them and try to get them owners. Yes. So

00:03:35.400 --> 00:03:38.100

we got a puppy if you

00:03:38.100 --> 00:03:41.900

go to our Facebook or our Instagram. Yeah, you

00:03:41.900 --> 00:03:44.200

can see pictures of her because she's the ayurvedic

00:03:44.200 --> 00:03:48.000

puppy. She's yep completely ayurvedic puppy and

00:03:47.700 --> 00:03:50.900

we're just doing construction and things

00:03:50.900 --> 00:03:53.300

like that. So now we

00:03:53.300 --> 00:03:56.700

can get back into talking about

00:03:57.800 --> 00:04:00.500

Our beliefs in yoga and Ayurveda. Yes. So

00:04:00.500 --> 00:04:04.000

one of the things that we have seen is that

00:04:03.400 --> 00:04:06.700

ayurveda is extremely

00:04:06.700 --> 00:04:09.400

important today compared to say

00:04:09.400 --> 00:04:12.500

three years ago. Yep, so I will

00:04:12.500 --> 00:04:13.300

go with Vie

00:04:14.600 --> 00:04:17.200

You're an ayurvedic expert. Please tell me

00:04:17.200 --> 00:04:20.200

why true ayurveda or real

00:04:20.800 --> 00:04:23.200

ayurveda is so important to the world

00:04:23.200 --> 00:04:24.500

now.

00:04:26.400 --> 00:04:27.100

well

00:04:28.500 --> 00:04:32.000

The world is obviously shifting in many many

00:04:31.300 --> 00:04:34.500

ways. So no matter where

00:04:34.500 --> 00:04:37.500

you actually live. I'm sure

00:04:37.500 --> 00:04:41.300

you have seen major shifts in

00:04:40.300 --> 00:04:43.500

your world in

00:04:43.500 --> 00:04:47.100

the last couple of years and these shifts keep

00:04:46.100 --> 00:04:48.900

increasing and keep increasing.

00:04:49.900 --> 00:04:52.600

A lot of times it feels like there

00:04:52.600 --> 00:04:55.800

is nothing you can do about it about those shifts

00:04:55.800 --> 00:04:58.800

and very often That's true

00:04:58.800 --> 00:05:01.800

right there is nothing you can actually do.

00:05:03.600 --> 00:05:06.200

Or it feels it feels like there is nothing

00:05:06.200 --> 00:05:09.900

you can do. You can't make these shifts stop,

00:05:09.900 --> 00:05:10.500

right?

00:05:11.300 --> 00:05:15.000

But what you can do is actually

00:05:14.900 --> 00:05:18.200

adapt to the shifts and

00:05:17.200 --> 00:05:21.200

keep improving your

00:05:21.200 --> 00:05:25.100

life and your community's life by taking

00:05:24.100 --> 00:05:26.300

certain actions.

00:05:27.200 --> 00:05:30.000

That's what ayurveda says that's what

00:05:30.900 --> 00:05:33.400

charaka says that you have

00:05:33.400 --> 00:05:37.300

to actually figure out ways

00:05:36.300 --> 00:05:40.800

to always adapt to

00:05:40.800 --> 00:05:43.400

the changes that are happening to keep

00:05:43.400 --> 00:05:46.600

making yourself healthier and

00:05:46.600 --> 00:05:49.800

happier and your community healthier and

00:05:49.800 --> 00:05:50.100

happier.

00:05:51.200 --> 00:05:54.600

So charaka says you pay

00:05:54.600 --> 00:05:58.500

attention you pay attention you study and

00:05:57.500 --> 00:06:00.300

you figure things out

00:06:00.300 --> 00:06:03.800

because there are always ways to do that. And I

00:06:03.800 --> 00:06:06.900

know that in our yoga that we taught we worked

00:06:06.900 --> 00:06:09.900

a lot on strength to make your body stronger. Yes.

00:06:09.900 --> 00:06:12.500

We also worked on making our

00:06:12.500 --> 00:06:15.400

body more mobile not flexible, but mobile

00:06:15.400 --> 00:06:18.200

big difference huge difference. We also

00:06:18.200 --> 00:06:22.600

worked on making our lungs our breath stronger

00:06:21.600 --> 00:06:24.500

last longer be more

00:06:24.500 --> 00:06:27.400

adaptable actually. Yeah, and we

00:06:27.400 --> 00:06:31.100

also worked on making our mind through meditation

00:06:30.100 --> 00:06:33.700

through different mantras

00:06:33.700 --> 00:06:36.700

mudras things like that to be able to stay focused

00:06:36.700 --> 00:06:39.600

longer. Yes, so and not be stressed

00:06:39.600 --> 00:06:42.200

exactly. So that was our style of

00:06:42.200 --> 00:06:45.800

yoga and I know that our style of ayurveda works

00:06:45.800 --> 00:06:48.400

a lot again on making giving our body

00:06:48.400 --> 00:06:50.900

the right Foods in order to build

00:06:51.100 --> 00:06:55.200

Muscle to assist the body in feeding itself

00:06:54.200 --> 00:06:57.600

properly to become better mobile to

00:06:57.600 --> 00:07:00.200

also give the brain the ability to

00:07:00.200 --> 00:07:03.800

become adapt quicker. Yes and to

00:07:03.800 --> 00:07:06.600

also become more agile.

00:07:06.600 --> 00:07:10.500

I would say yeah. Yeah brain agility.

00:07:10.500 --> 00:07:13.700

yeah it's huge and with that Also We

00:07:13.700 --> 00:07:16.700

also use astrology. Yes

00:07:16.700 --> 00:07:19.200

because astrology I like how you always say

00:07:19.200 --> 00:07:23.800

it's a unfit or un Something challenge or

00:07:23.800 --> 00:07:26.400

what? It's unfair Advantage. Yeah, that's it.

00:07:26.400 --> 00:07:30.400

Yes because it tells you what tomorrow

00:07:29.400 --> 00:07:32.400

might be exactly because

00:07:32.400 --> 00:07:36.200

it's all based on statistics exactly and statistically this

00:07:35.200 --> 00:07:38.600

could happen tomorrow. Yes. It's a

00:07:38.600 --> 00:07:41.500

higher statistic and I know that when this

00:07:41.500 --> 00:07:44.300

comes out, we're in a pretty s***** time.

00:07:44.300 --> 00:07:47.400

Yeah. It's actually rough

00:07:47.400 --> 00:07:50.700

time the next few months are pretty rough.

00:07:51.200 --> 00:07:54.900

So with that you can actually see it and

00:07:54.900 --> 00:07:57.600

work with it and then you it doesn't

00:07:57.600 --> 00:08:00.900

affect you and make you more it actually

00:08:00.900 --> 00:08:03.700

assists you from not becoming depressed or

00:08:03.700 --> 00:08:06.600

not becoming weak or not becoming something because

00:08:06.600 --> 00:08:09.600

you already know that it's gonna happen exactly. It's

00:08:09.600 --> 00:08:12.600

a like the Marcus Aurelius

00:08:12.600 --> 00:08:15.500

meditations, right Marcus Aurelius would get

00:08:15.500 --> 00:08:18.800

up every morning and he would tell himself

00:08:18.800 --> 00:08:21.900

that his day was gonna consist of

00:08:21.900 --> 00:08:25.400

people who were going to try to hurt him

00:08:24.400 --> 00:08:27.800

you know, kill him

00:08:27.800 --> 00:08:30.500

execute him and all these and he

00:08:30.500 --> 00:08:33.800

would also encounter people who were gonna help him all

00:08:33.800 --> 00:08:37.400

that stuff. So he was preparing himself

00:08:36.400 --> 00:08:40.200

mentally, right? So nothing would

00:08:39.200 --> 00:08:42.700

throw him off. That's that's how

00:08:42.700 --> 00:08:45.700

I look at astrology. Yeah, and it

00:08:45.700 --> 00:08:48.800

gives us the ability to see that okay like today

00:08:48.800 --> 00:08:51.000

when we're recording this

00:08:51.200 --> 00:08:54.500

It says we shouldn't really be around people right? Yes.

00:08:54.500 --> 00:08:57.500

So it's a good day to stay in or

00:08:57.500 --> 00:09:00.500

hang out without people around

00:09:00.500 --> 00:09:03.500

exactly and if you encounter a

00:09:03.500 --> 00:09:07.600

possible confrontation just change

00:09:06.600 --> 00:09:09.600

the tune so that it

00:09:09.600 --> 00:09:10.700

doesn't escalate that's all it is

00:09:11.700 --> 00:09:15.100

So with that you

00:09:14.100 --> 00:09:16.300

combine

00:09:17.400 --> 00:09:20.900

The yoga we teach along with the ayurveda we teach along

00:09:20.900 --> 00:09:24.600

with astrology in order to help you not

00:09:23.600 --> 00:09:26.400

become stressed and to get

00:09:26.400 --> 00:09:29.400

rid of depression and to help yourself to become

00:09:29.400 --> 00:09:31.000

the healthiest

00:09:31.900 --> 00:09:35.000

Person that you can be. Yep. And so

00:09:34.200 --> 00:09:37.500

with that that's what we're going to be talking in

00:09:37.500 --> 00:09:40.700

This series is using those three things. Yes.

00:09:40.700 --> 00:09:43.200

Am I correct in using those three things? Yes, absolutely

00:09:43.200 --> 00:09:46.600

to be able to be the best You can

00:09:46.600 --> 00:09:49.000

be exactly is that an Army commercial be the best you can be

00:09:49.300 --> 00:09:52.700

be the best you can be. Well, yep. Actually that's what ayurveda

00:09:52.700 --> 00:09:55.700

says, ayurveda says you always wanna be

00:09:55.700 --> 00:09:58.800

the best you can be for yourself

00:09:58.800 --> 00:10:01.700

and for your community and that's

00:10:01.700 --> 00:10:04.900

why we named the podcast also Spartan mind

00:10:04.900 --> 00:10:07.700

strength because that was the idea of the Spartans

00:10:07.700 --> 00:10:10.900

to be the best You can be not just

00:10:10.900 --> 00:10:12.200

for yourself

00:10:13.500 --> 00:10:16.400

For yourself within your community.

00:10:17.600 --> 00:10:21.200

So ayurveda looks at

00:10:20.200 --> 00:10:23.600

looks at everything

00:10:23.600 --> 00:10:26.800

you can do within your environment

00:10:26.800 --> 00:10:29.900

in order to make your body

00:10:29.900 --> 00:10:33.000

mind and emotions healthier.

00:10:33.800 --> 00:10:37.200

Because there are always Solutions your

00:10:36.200 --> 00:10:39.600

environment gives you but what happens

00:10:39.600 --> 00:10:42.800

to give people that information.

00:10:58.700 --> 00:11:01.900

Because he could see that people were missing

00:11:01.900 --> 00:11:04.400

out on amazing things that

00:11:04.400 --> 00:11:06.600

they could be doing that they were not doing.

00:11:07.900 --> 00:11:10.100

Okay. Now with that is it

00:11:10.100 --> 00:11:13.400

difficult real ayurveda is

00:11:13.400 --> 00:11:16.400

very simple. The reason

00:11:16.400 --> 00:11:20.000
