In this episode, Tony and I talk about a very important topic for this time of year…winter foods and how you can adjust your diet for this season. We go over why our bodies may be wanting different foods than we crave in the warmer months as well as suggestions for shifting your diet with the season. By making small changes in the foods you eat, you continue feeling great but also listening to what your body truly needs and wants. Be sure to tune in to hear all the amazing tips and tricks Tony and I reveal on today’s episode.
Next, my very special guest is a wonderful teacher of mine: the amazing and beautiful Shiva Rea. I’ve done various yoga trainings and workshops with Shiva over the years. Shiva and I talk about where she gets her creative energy from and how she has truly transformed the yoga space. Shiva shares her personal story and some insight on how she became the person she is today. Shiva shares her new online course that starts Jan. 15th called Yoga Alchemy, which brings her teachings right into the comfort of your own home. This interview is powerful and has bits of inspiration for everyone.
