“I can’t meditate,” is one of the most common phrases I hear in the yoga studio. Students somehow feel that since they cannot sit still or calm their mind, they are unable to practice meditation—but the opposite is true. The very fact that you cannot sit still or clear your mind, is exactly why you need to practice.

But how do you learn? And where do you get started?

On this week’s Yoga Talk Show, you’ll meet a meditator and innovator who has created the world’s first, drop-in yoga center in Los Angeles. Through her book, her studio and her mobile phone app, she is reaching hundreds of thousands with a very simple message: unplug your mind, recharge your soul.

What You’ll Learn:

  • How meditation can be as simple as 3 minutes daily
  • The 3 things that happen in just about any meditation
  • How meditation slows mental and physical aging
  • How to find the right practice for you

ABOUT OUR GUEST

Suze Yalof Schwartz is the CEO and Founder of Unplug Meditation (a bricks and mortar meditation center), the author of Unplug: A Simple Guide To Meditation for Busy Skeptics and Modern Soul Seekers, and the creator of the Unplug Meditation App.

In 2012 Suze learned a three minute meditation that completely changed her life and career. Today, Suze’s mission is to make meditation simple, powerful and interesting enough so that everyone will want to practice it and experience the benefits for themselves.

There are two types of people who say that flexibility doesn’t matter. The first group is stiff as a board and want an excuse for their lack of mobility. The second group consists of people who have always been flexible, the dancers and gymnasts who flop into the splits like it’s nothing.

For the rest of us, flexibility absolutely matters. It impacts our posture, our walking and running gates, and even our potential for injury.

On this week’s Yoga Talk Show, you’ll meet a yoga teacher working with professional athletes to improve their mobility—and the stakes couldn’t be higher. These are people whose body is their business. They need to train hard, recover fast, and injury prevention is a top priority.

What You’ll Learn:

  • How mobility training gets integrated into professional sports training
  • How yoga teachers can add value to athletes, adapting their teaching and language to meet students where they’re at
  • Why flexibility training should be done after (not before) strength or conditioning
  • How flexibility training can temporarily reduce power and joint stability, but why that doesn’t mean you should avoid it
