Slowing Down to Find Your Flow with Tara Stiles

In theory, we all want to slow down and live with more purpose but, in practice, the emotional and psychological barriers to changing your mindset can be incredibly challenging to overcome. On this episode, we host Tara Stiles, a global yoga, movement, and wellness expert, author, and Founder of Strala Yoga. She brings a revolutionary approach to being, moving, and healing, and offers some life-changing insights in our conversation today. Tara shares about her path into yoga and how her first experience reminded her of feelings she had as a child. You’ll also hear about the ‘Yoga Rebel’ piece about Tara that was published in the New York Times and some of the obstacles she hopes readers will overcome when they read her book. We get real about crises of spirit and talk about the conversations Tara has been having with her preschooler, and as well as the importance of teaching boundaries as a parent. We dive into how yoga is a part of her child’s life and the main thing she wants readers to take away from the book: yoga is already within you and you deserve to feel good! We hope you join us for today’s inspiring episode.
