007 Travis Eliot – Becoming the Ultimate Yogi



(listen with the player above or subscribe & review at iTunes or Stitcher),




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.

Practically Conscious Progress

A quick update on the progress of the Practically Conscious Podcast…

I’ve conducted some really great interviews over the last couple of months, editing them down into some shows that I really love and am excited to soon be sharing with all of you.  These shows already have tons of great nuggets of information and advice about yoga, meditation, consciousness, and how to live a really great life.

Practically Conscious is now set to launch mid-September, and will be released weekly on Thursdays.

I have been trying out different intros at the beginning of each episode, here’s the latest:

“This podcast is here to show you that bringing your life to the next level IS possible.  It is possible to live an enlightened, conscious, wonderful, passionate, healthy, and rewarding life.  It IS possible to live in an almost continuous state of bliss.  I’ve been passionate about personal development since I was a kid and I’ve often asked myself, ‘why is that?’  Well, I’ve always wanted to maximize my bliss, those most amazing peak experiences that are the highlights of life. This doesn’t mean I didn’t have some pretty rough times along the way, but I did figure a lot of this stuff out. Eventually people started asking how I made such a profound shift, and I found I really enjoyed sharing what works for me.  Once you shift your lens to view life this way, the whole thing becomes a heck of a lot more easy, your life falls into balance and everything flows naturally. We’ll explore the tools for how to get you there, and if you’ve already found your way, we’ll have entertaining and inspiring conversations that’ll help keep you in an awakened state.  Welcome to Practically Conscious…”

I’d love to hear your suggestions for show topics and ideas for people to interview!  Feel free to make a suggestion in the comments section below, or e-mail me your ideas at chris@chrisbrownstudios.com.

Lots of love,
