In the short term, this affects your mood and waistline; in the long term, it reduces your healthspan and lifespan very dramatically.

------------

Listen & Learn:

  • Carbs vs net carbs – what's the difference?
  • Why there is no need to be scared of white sugar
  • How whole grains can actually be a problem

Why do so many yoga and meditation teachers talk in the third person, add in huge pauses between words, and hold awkward eye contact while teaching? Where did this caricature of a "spiritual person" come from, and is there really any point? As a career yoga teacher, I've fallen into just about every trap there is, including adopting "yoga speak," appropriating Eastern cultures (disrespectfully), and role playing a yogi. Unfortunately, this behaviour pushes more people away than it attracts, and I've done my best in recent years just to be myself.

Our guest on this week's Yoga Talk Show has built a huge online following basically making fun of people like me—and his jokes are so true, you can't ignore him. Beyond comedy, JP Sears is really a satirist, and his knowledge and true messages are worth listening too. He's a smart guy.

------------

Listen & Learn:

  • How comedy can be a great teaching tool
  • Why self-awareness is so important on any path of personal or spiritual growth
  • Why there is so much role playing in yoga communities
  • Why it's important to laugh at yourself (sometimes)
