Applying Ancient Yoga Principles to a Busy, Modern Life with Pleasance Silicki

Do you ever feel overwhelmed by the demands and pressures of your life? Do you struggle to find a healthy way through the daily ups and downs? Do you wish for a fairy godmother to wave her magic wand and take care of everything on your to-do list so you can catch your breath? (I’m raising my hand over here on that last one!)

Most of us want lives filled with joy and ease but our choices often set us up for something very different. Even if we’re making the best choices we can, the pressures of modern life are hard to juggle. 

It’s helpful to have a path to follow, a structure or practice that helps guide us toward a more ease-filled life. Today we’re talking about applying the ancient wisdom of yoga principles to busy lives in practical ways. Yoga is MUCH, MUCH more than just a body-stretching path to fitness!

My guest this week is Pleasance Silicki, a teacher, coach, magic-maker and community builder. She’s the author of the e-book Delight: Eight Principles for Living with Joy and Ease, and co-founder of the National Kids Yoga Conference. She also founded Lil Omm Yoga, a former yoga studio in Washington, DC, now an online community. Today we are talking about slowing down, simplifying, and giving ourselves permission to be ENOUGH.
