PODCAST & BLOG


Brett Larkin joins me for a conversation about yoga. If you’ve followed me for some time then you know all about my push-pull relationship with yoga. What I love about Brett is that she talks about and teaches yoga from a practical standpoint.

Brett is the founder of Uplifted Yoga® and the author of Yoga Life: Habits, Poses, and Breathwork to Channel Joy Amidst the Chaos. Her book, Yoga Life, explores finding the ritual, poses, and breathing that works for you—as opposed to subscribing to a specific yoga modality or practice, which we also discussed throughout our conversation. 

In this episode, you’ll hear:

  • Brett’s definition of yoga. TLDR: it’s not about poses; it’s about awareness. (5:18)
  • Fun yoga habits anyone can practice without getting on a mat, like:  “Forget the poses. Focus on your breathing.” (10:00)
  • Belly breathing, how to do it, and the benefits of breathing (16:35)
  • Brett answers, “What is the Chakra System?” (22:30)
  • The benefit of designing your own yoga ritual rather than following along with an online video or app (25:28)
