I talk with the star of the Ultimate Yogi, Travis Eliot.  The Ultimate Yogi is currently the top rated yoga DVD series on Amazon.  But Travis is much more than that – he’s an Ayurveda expert, Kirtan musician, a sought after retreat leader, and the CEO of Inner Domain Media.   We cover a wide range of topic in our conversation including how he found his own among the already crowded field of popular yogis, the importance of rest, trusting your self and your path, and developing a positive mindset with respect to money and spirituality.  We had a great time making this, enjoy!

Travis can be found at www.traviseliot.com and on Facebook at Travis Eliot.

The workshop is a 10 hour, 4 class immersion in yoga designed to deepen your yoga practice. Everyone is welcome as long as there is room, and no prior experience is needed.

  • Practicing awareness in order to cultivate a beneficial mindset for yoga and life.
  • Increasing acceptance, presence, patience, focus, gentleness, and gratitude.
  • Decreasing judgmentalism, competitiveness, distraction, and self criticism.
  • Discovering comfort in the poses and in life.

This workshop is a personal sharing of Chris’ yoga style and philosophy with you. It is designed to provide an environment where your own unique understanding and perspective of yoga emerge out of direct experience and interaction with Chris.

I had the great honor of talking with Bryan Kest, one of the world’s best known and influential yoga teachers.  Bryan is the founder of Power Yoga and travels the world teaching thousands of student per year.  He was kind enough to spend enough time with me that we had to break the episode into two parts.  We discuss a wide range of topics related to consciousness & awakening including:

  • Living in India as an American.
  • Being ok with where you are and not taking life too seriously.
  • The importance of not bringing competitiveness into your yoga practice.
  • The great impact of Vipassana in Bryan’s life
