Mindful Strength Podcast

The Mindful Strength podcast began in 2017 as a DIY project in my living room. Over the last two years it has grown into a full production that features the leading voices in yoga, movement, body politics and rehabilitation. This show also documents the continuation of my own learning as a yoga teacher turned movement educator and it provides top level information for teachers and trainers who are interested in diversifying their understanding of the body. I aim to bring complex topics to the forefront using simple language so that anyone interested in learning more about strength and movement can join the conversation.

As the podcast passes its 100th episode (airing on April 4th 2019) we are accepting donations and support so that we can continue to release high quality interviews that will remain advertisement free, sustainable and accessible to all. Here’s to the next 100 great conversations!

Thank you so much for your podcast and the materials you have made available online. I’ve been incorporating your strength training practices in my own practice and in my classes. Weighted squats, deadlifts and lots of lunges. I’ve had Rheumatoid Arthritis since my teens and for the first time ever, my knees don’t snap crackle pop when i climb stairs, or stand up from my yoga mat:)

Love the podcast too! I especially enjoyed the interview with Shante Cofield. She said something that really resonated with me and is guiding me, as a yoga teacher, slowly, toward my niche:)

Strength training is full of cultural messaging including “No Pain, No Gain” the desire for fat loss, and the idea that we have to push our bodies hard to see results. I’m here to tell you that working hard is great, but working in a way that builds the body up rather than breaking it down is even better. This course will introduce you to my method, it’s the perfect way to test out if Mindful Strength is right for you.
