Welcome to Yoga Voice! The idea for this podcast came as I crossed the Australian desert on my motorcycle. I rode 19000 klm around Australia and listened to a lot of podcasts along the way. I was influenced and inspired by what I was listening to and wanted to create a conversation about yoga with the beautiful and brave people who teach it. When Im riding I experience moments of profound clarity and presence. I become open to receive the teachings in whatever form they may come and am inspired to bring the practice into everything that I do. It is from this space of deep gratitude and wild adventure that Yoga Voice was born. I hope you enjoy and contribute to the evolving conversation of yoga.

Josh Chen

Can you imagine teaching yoga at 16? Neither can I. Josh Chen, on the other hand can see no other way. He has such a great mix of innocence, wisdom and squish his cheeks cuteness. My favorite part is when he talks about how much hes grown from the ages of 15 to 16. Right, I think the lessons he learned in one year has taken me about 10! To each their own right??? Josh is a great reminder that our teachers come in all shapes, sizes and ages and if we keep our mind open we can learn from them all. Thank you Josh.
Here he is in action

Sjanie McInnis

Sjanz, as she is affectionately called, let me interview her for 90 whole minutes, all while her little bambinos snoozed. Sjanie, without a doubt, has been a very influential teacher in my life. Because of this I had a family of hyper active butterflies in my belly even though I have known her for years and she is one of the most accessible and humble teachers going. I wanted to do her students proud, she is so loved and I didn't want people to be listening and cursing my name because I didn't ask the questions they would have asked or I didn't allow space for her to drop any thought bombs. Lucky for me it's not hard to get the goods from Sjanie and no matter what she will make you stop and think. I was worried though, as I always am after an interview, that I didn't quite "get it" or that I didn't get to the heart of the teacher and that I didn't live up to my intention which is to add to the deeper conversation of yoga and possibly a deeper understanding of the teachings, possibly. Im going to keep on plugging away at it though and learn from each one because my motorcycle and the desert told me to.
Listen to her interview and then go to her blog to find out everything you need to know. 

She will also be teaching at the Wanderlust Festival in Whistler, B.C.  http://whistler.wanderlustfestival.com/

Are you going to Wanderlust?? Yes! lets play, it will be oh so fun!

Thank You for listening!
I would love to hear from you

Alex Mazerolle

Yay! This is my 10th episode!
Among many things, Alex Mazerolle si the founder and creator of Girlvana Yoga.

Girlvana brings the practice of yoga to teenage girls in an accessible and relevant context. I think we can all agree yoga would have helped navigate the muddy waters of high school, if only for an hour at a time. I think it's a bit obvious and redundant for me to sing the praises of the teachers who do the podcast, as if I'm going to bad mouth anyone, but Alex is seriously awesome! She was super bubbly and personable and very easy to interview, so easy I almost forgot we were recording at times.

Here is a video of Alex introducing Girlvana!
