James Uncovers The Truth About Claudia

Here is something unusual for The Yoga Podcast.

This time James Altucher (my husband) is interviewing me (the Yoga Teacher).

james altucher

And he is not holding back, he asks about personal things (very personal),

For example: about yoga:

  • About what brought me to it,
  • What it did to me,
  • What it can do for you, and
  • How it influences every moment of my life

Claudia Yoga

There was talk ranging the whole gamut:

  1. from Patanjali,
  2. The Hatha Yoga Pradipika
  3. To Professor Krishnamacharya and his student: BKS Iyengar and Pattabhi Jois (founder of the Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga System)
  4. To Tiwari (one of the top pranayama (breathing) teachers in the world
  5. To Paul Dallaghan who taught me pranayama after learning it from Tiwari
  6. To Jessica, Kino, Gregor … everybody who came on the Yoga Podcast!

Michael Singer Second ‘Ever’ Live Interview Here

Let me tell you what happened to me when I read “The Surrender Experiment”” by Michale Singer, which by the way, JUST hit the NY Times Best-Seller… Of course.

It was a big surprise!

 

Mostly because I did NOT read it.

Instead… I EXPERIENCED it!

It went something like this, in every chapter, and in an endless loop…

– Wait. What!”

– Oh C’mon! Seriously!?

– And he surrendered to THAT?

– Really?

– And then THAT happened?

– WOW…. wow wow wow

Next chapter: Repeat… and on, and on, and on…

I could not put it down, in fact,  I switched between reading and listening in audio.  … Read the rest

What is Compassion if You Can’t Help? Paul Dallaghan

Paul Dallaghan has a yoga retreat that I can only describe as the Richard Branson’s Isand for yoga

Any yoga “real thing” you’d like is there, at his place in Ko Samui, Thailand (I’ve been to the place twice). For example: ayurvedic treatments, infrared saunas, pool, steaming showers, excellent food, exceptional yoga and pranayama instruction and amazingly beautiful accommodations by the ocean…  [ If you can’t see the window with the play button click here to start listening ]

And he is one of the most humble people I know.  Maybe that is why everything good comes his way… Although life is not always easy…

I found out in a rather “brutal way” for podcast standards so to speak, that he is no longer with his wife… I went unconscious and said:

“I’m sorry”

To which he laughed and said: “Nothing to be sorry about, but yeah, go ahead”

Just like comedian and philosopher Louis CK says: divorce is a good thing…

When two people’s journeys come to an end, then so be it…

Laruga Wakes Up at 2:45 AM For Yoga!

Laruga Glaser couldn’t help but being a yoga teacher… Life kept drawing her into it, even when she was kicked out of a yoga teacher training, it was not because of bad behavior but because… well, I’ll let you hear it from her:

The Yoga Episode #9 – Joy Marzec – A Movie Director In 4th Series Of Ashtanga Yoga

Joy Marzec is a movie writer, producer, director, a music band member, an idea machine, a complete choose yourself case (she invested what she would have paid in film school into making her own films), OH AND…

A yogi practicing the fourth series of Ashtanga Yoga (which in plain terms means something like winning an olympic gold medal three times, not that asana should EVER be on the olympics… But just to give you an idea)
