A yoga teacher, a yoga student, & a yoga business coach: A conversation with Amy McDonald

Season #2

Welcome back to the Meet Me on Your Mat Podcast! This week we are chatting with Amy McDonald on all things yoga.

Amy is a yoga teacher, yoga student, a self-proclaimed yoga nerd, and a yoga business coach hailing from just outside Melbourne, Australia.

As the host of the podcast, "The Abundant Yoga Teacher," and a true force in the yoga world, Amy has so much to share with us about her own yoga journey. There are more than a few good nuggets in this episode to chew on. 

Here are some takeaways from this episode: 

  • There are so many phases to a yoga journey when you stick with it longer than a couple of years. And, you never know how it's going to unfold.  
  • A candid explanation of what Anusara Yoga entails and how every lineage of yoga has some sort of scandal in its history. Does that mean the teachings  are no longer valid? 
  • You can't take anything personally - in yoga, in teaching yoga, or in your yoga business.  
  • Being a yogi = trying to be a good person.
  • Keep doing your yoga, but it doesn't matter that much. It doesn't matter if it's perfect, or what you look like. It matters that you do it. 

Note: The name of the instructor we blanked on in the episode is Richard Freeman.
