Are you craving to go deeper in your practice and your understanding of yoga philosophy? If so, today’s episode is for you because I’m sitting down with someone who lives at the intersection of yoga and philosophy: Rebecca Polack.

Rebecca has been a yoga teacher for over 20 years and also holds a Doctorate Degree in Philosophy and Religion, with a concentration in yoga studies. In addition to her academic studies, Rebecca has been studying South-Asian philosophy and Sanskrit text, as well as producing coloring books as a contemplation tool for the Sutras of Patanjali.

Tune in this week to discover how to introduce a contemplative approach to your yoga practice and understand yogic philosophy on a deeper level. Rebecca is sharing what she’s learned through her philosophical and practical research on the power of getting creative as you work to understand what text like the Yoga Sutras means to you and your own practice.

What You’ll Discover:

  • Rebecca’s journey and evolution with yoga, practicing for 35 years and teaching for over 20 years.
  • Why Rebecca found yoga such a transformative practice.
  • How Rebecca came up with the idea for her contemplative coloring book series.
  • The power of making time to sit with text, absorb it, meditate on it, and decide what it means to you.
  • Why coloring is such an effective contemplative tool.
  • How to make your Asana yoga practice a more curious, playful, and contemplative experience.
  • Why the invitation to analyze your perspective and gain a deeper understanding of how you operate goes beyond your yoga practices.
  • How to meet your contemplation with self-compassion as you find your way in the world of yoga philosophy.
