This month I'm starting a special, summer series here on the podcast, where I'm featuring interviews and talks about the path of women's yoga & meditation. I'm sharing these in celebration of my soon-to-open (later this month!) online, 200-hour Yoga Alliance Women's Yoga & Meditation Teacher Trainiing. To start this series out, I'm sharing an interview with Angela Farmer, one of my yogini-heroines for the past two decades. A luminary in her field, she's studied with some of the world's greatest spiritual masters: B.K.S Iyengar, Patabhi Jois, H.H. the Dalai Lama, and more. But it wasn't until she stepped out of all traditions and dropped into the yoga of listening closely to her own body that she finally found what she was looking for– the experience of feeling at home in herself. This intimate conversation with Angela, which I recorded several years ago, truly feels like sitting at the feet of a wise, female elder. She shares with tremendous honesty and clarity how she has arrived at this place in her life of truly accepting and loving herself as she is, while helping others to do the same. You'll likely want to take some notes while listening to this, as there are so many rich nuggets to remember. Enjoy!
