Listen to the podcasts I have been featured on below...
LIFE OUTSIDE THE LINES
In this episode, I join Tamsin for a wonderful conversation about topics close to my heart...
"Many of us, particularly in the West, think of yoga as a practice of physical postures that we do on our yoga mats during a visit to the local studio. But what if we learned that traditionally it is so much more than this and we could take the benefits of yoga off the mat and into our everyday lives? In this episode I’m joined by Yoga Teacher and Founder of My Wellness Company, Jyoti Chadda, to explore the core philosophies of yoga in a modern context. We chat about: The eight components, or 'limbs', of yoga, cultivating mindfulness, the power of introspection, capitalism and the commercialisation of wellness, including why this might be making you feel worse not better, and what to do about it, tailoring your yoga practice to your own body's needs, simple practices to integrate yoga into everyday life and more!
THIIIRD EYE VIEW
In this episode I join Kishan, founder of Thiiird World Ltd. We talk about how to take yoga off the mat, the benefits of meditation, how to combat negative thoughts & more.
"Episode 14 of the Thiiird Eye View Podcast is with Jyoti, who is the founder of @mywellnesscompany, and we speak about the importance of yoga and meditation! We start by discussing what does yoga truly mean, how to incorporate introspection in our lives and how to make life work for us instead of against us. We speak about her journey as a teacher in school to a full time yoga teacher and how yoga and meditation practices could help students."
VIDA & VIBRA
In this episode, I join Desi and Rafael - two beautiful souls from Ecuador who I met in India during my yoga teacher training. We talk about my journey with yoga, cultural appropriation within yoga and how we, as yoga teachers, can do better.
"As yoga gets more popular in mainstream culture, more and more people who aren’t connected to the practice’s roots are picking it up without the context of the essence of yoga’s meaning. Here our guest Jyoti, an Indian woman, yoga practitioner and entrepreneur living in the UK, shares with us the important things that we need to know when we are sharing the practice of yoga with others, how to do it better in terms to being respectful on traditions that go back thousands of years in South Asia and other places around the world, so here Jyoti share with us how to make sure you're not contributing to harm. Cultural appropriation is a process that takes a traditional practice from a marginalized group and turns it into something that benefits the dominant group - ultimately erasing its origins and meaning."
