Self-Care for Extremely Busy Women

Oct 25, 2022

How do we REALLY calm down at the core? With Yoga, for one thing. It’s a 2000 year old practice proven to relieve stress. Suzanne talks to yogini Kashi Ananda


In the spirit of slowing down, I thought I’d do a two part over this episode and next on the root of calming ourselves deeply through yoga and mindfulness. Nothing unplugs us like these two ancient, venerable traditions… so it’s time to talk to two experts in these fields.


This show begins with a bit of a chapter of my book, The Extremely Busy Woman’s Guide to Self-Care, titled ‘Why Self Care is Not Ultimately About Time Management’. Because really? That’s what it’s all about –the stuff of life!


In this episode I interview Northern California yogini Kashi Ananda about what really makes yoga so very, very good at helping us slow down and go within. Personally, I’ve sworn by it for almost 40 years!


Among other things, we discussed:


  • What it is about yoga that helps cultivate the still mind
  • What yoga is beyond the movements
  • Does video yoga ‘work’?
  • Suzanne’s wild yoga experience while giving birth
  • How to get started even if you think you can’t do yoga
  • Yoga for staving off midlife aging
  • The magical flow that is Tri-Yoga


May you enjoy this as much as I did!


With love,
