Guys! 30 episodes already? Can you believe it?
For our 30th episode, I sat down with Jeremy Falk. I met Jeremy on line and then realized we had many friends in common in San Francisco. Yoga is a small world. When I saw that he was an ambassador for Yoga Journal and he was going travel around to document the impact of yoga in the west, I was in total awe with him, and so inspired to think that maybe someday I could do something like that myself. I knew right away I wanted to sit down with him to talk about that and a bit of everything else he does to get to know him better.

What’s your biggest take away from the whole experience? What one thing you really brought back with you?
I would love to hear a little bit more about a few different events. What city or event made the biggest impression on you? And why?
Can you name one person you met who transformed you as a student? And one who transformed you as a teacher?
