Just Breathe: A Conversation with Melanie

Season #1 Episode #12

"Just Breathe." It really is that simple. That's what Melanie shares with us this week on the podcast. Her career involves leading a large international team and as the landscape evolves, she's constantly reminding others this one lesson she's learned from her eleven-year yoga practice.  She tells us the biggest lessons from her time on her mat are: just breath and things change. And, sometimes a headstand in the middle of the day, is the best medicine.  We cover a lot of ground in this episode, discussing the thought that "yoga is only for broken people," what it takes to break through the thoughts of "this is not for me," or, "I can't do that," and how her practice has brought her a greater strength and connection to herself.  If you are feeling stuck in rut, or are barely making it to your mat these days, give this episode a listen. There are so many take aways in this one that will ring true to you and inspire you to keep going or begin again.  Mentioned in this episode: Books: Hellbent by Benjamin Lorr, Professional Trouble Maker: The Fear Fighter Manual by Luvvie Ajayi Jones For more information of my online classes, including the New Student Special, https://meetmeonyourmat.yoga/ (click here). https://meetmeonyourmat.yoga/win-2-weeks-of-unlimited-yoga/ (Become a Meet Me on Your Mat Insider) and be the first to know about in-person events, retreats, online happenings, blog posts, and podcast episodes!
