Yoga off the mat Podcast

Greetings, I am so glad that you are here! I am your host Marie Russel and this is “Yoga off the Mat.” During this series, I explore how we can use the philosophy of yoga and the principals from “A Course in Miracles” to transcend some of the seemingly difficult poses -perhaps relationships and situations- that we find ourselves in – off the mat. I’ll be sharing practices, lessons, and tools that I have learned (sometimes the hard way) to live with a lot less fear and a lot more love. It’s a practice in learning how to access those easy breezy feelings we feel in a yoga class, off the mat and in our lives. It’s a practice in learning how to align to the YOU that YOU love to be with.

You can now catch this podcast on iTunes.

Episode Two: Stepping off the mat into yoga

Stepping Off the Mat into Yoga Yoga Off the Mat Podcast: Episode Two: Yoga in the West has become mostly physical with lots of words. Having led teacher trainings for over fifteen years I have witnessed hundreds (maybe thousands?) of people as they move through their own personal journeys - through the yoga practice to the Self- to that sweet spot where all is well and peace resides. Yoga is a practice in the mind. Yoga is a reworking of the way your mind turns. So you can be in the nature of who you are. So you can live from that place of authenticity and oneness with your creator and all that it is. n today's episode, I share how a big blue book and two master teachers, encouraged me to climb off the mat and learn to live a lighter life. Meet me on the bridge we share - when the mat rolls up and the day begins. Now is the time for yoga: Yoga Sutras 1:1.
