Don’t Believe Everything You Think. Or at Least Get a Second Opinion!

Challenge Old Beliefs. “Modify Not Deny.”

“A lot of things have happened that don’t make much sense yet have become part of what we expect and what we believe.” ~ Sarah Haag

Sarah Haag, highly respected women’s health physical therapist, educator, and speaker, opposes the traditional treatment of pregnant women as being fragile or weak.  She says that pregnant women are often written off regarding their pain and reminds listeners that, when there is pain in pregnancy, there is help available! Ask for help!

“Play more.” ~ Sandy Hilton

To Thine Own Self Be True                                                            

“To be true to yourself, you have to spend time with yourself. You have to be still. You have to have a relationship with yourself. And that takes courage.”

~ Carolyn VanDyken

Carolyn VanDyken is a physiotherapist, educator, author, and researcher. She shares a little of her own history and some powerful commentary on the strength and courage that are required to be true to yourself. Has Carolyn always found it easy to ‘go against the grain’ and be a spokesperson for her beliefs?  Not necessarily . . .

Service Isn’t Just Volunteering:

How Practising Your Passion is Yoga “Off the Mat”

“Service is an attitude. It’s an attitude that we bring to anything. It can be the way we do our job or the way we take care of our kids. Figure out what you love, what you’re passionate about, and then offer that to the world.” ~ Jivana Heyman

Jivana Heyman is the founder and director of Accessible Yoga, an organization dedicated to making yoga more inclusive. He’s also an Integral Yoga minister. Jivana shares remarkable ideas on how we can practice service, and it’s easier (or more difficult) than you might think! Hint: service doesn’t necessarily always mean volunteering at a soup kitchen. Tune into how a simple adjustment of attitude can contribute to making a positive difference in the world today.
