Who among us has not been paralyzed by fear? In this episode, award-winning journalist Jaimal Yogis explains why fear so often dominates our lives, what makes it tick, and how we can use fear to our advantage. He shares with us his experiences living in a monastery, overcoming heartbreak, and how we all can emerge triumphant from even the most paralyzing of fear, sadness and loss. Learn how fear evolved in the human brain, how to use the latest neuroscience to transform fear memories. Discover why fear spreads between us and how to counteract fearful "group think," and how to turn fear into a performance enhancer - athletically and at work.

A graduate of the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism, Jaimal Yogis is the author of the best-sellers Saltwater Buddha, a coming-of-age memoir about how surfing and the sea helped him transition back to the world after a year in a Zen monastery (now also a documentary film); and The Fear Project, which looks at the neuroscience of fear and courage, using science, mindfulness, and sports to reveal ways in which humans can live more fully. His new book, All Our Waves Are Water: stumbling toward enlightenment and the perfect ride, uses the sea as a metaphor to explore the true self. Jaimal's writing has appeared in ESPN Magazine, The Washington Post, The Chicago Tribune, and many others. He teaches meditation and creative writing at places like Spirit Rock, Kripalu, 1440 Multiversity, and the Writing Pad.

Think you know all there is to know about yogic breathing? Think again! In this episode, Lucas Rockwood challenges us to redefine yogic breathing into “water, whiskey or coffee.” Learn practical hacks like how to “check” your nostrils to know if it’s a good time to work, eat, or exercise. Discover how you can manipulate your breath to wake up and fall asleep. Lucas also shares with us why C02, not oxygen, is what we need to focus on and understand when analyzing our breath. 

Lucas Rockwood is a yoga teacher trainer, nutritional coach, writer, and serial entrepreneur. He’s studied with teachers like Pattabhi Jois and Paul Dallaghan. He’s trained in Hot Yoga, Ashtanga Yoga, Gravity Yoga, and the Yoga Trapeze.  His company YOGABODY is an internationally-renowned nutrition, education, and publishing organization serving 81 countries.

We all want to take our yoga practice beyond the mat, but what does that practically look like? In this conversation with Sivana’s new podcast host, Brett Larkin, you’ll learn how to personalize your practice by “dating” multiple yoga styles, how to create a daily ritual combining yoga, journaling and meditation, and simple tips to integrate yoga philosophy into the mundane moments of daily living.
