In this episode of The Movement and Mindfulness Podcast I'm chatting with Vanessa Hollo - an outreach worker and accessible yoga teacher supporting addiction and mental health recovery.
Straight up you need to know that in this episode we talk about substance use and addiction, mental health conditions and trauma. There is also adult language and a conversation about the rise of conspiracy theory supporters within the yoga community.
Vanessa shares with us:
> her own experiences with substance addiction, mental health and recovery and how that led her to sharing the work she does now
> why trauma informed yoga practices are so important in ANY setting
> why autonomy and choice are a vital element of a sustainable and supportive yoga practice and how to navigate the need many of us have for structure and knowing how to do it 'right'
> her views around the rise of conspiracy theory supporters within the yoga community - why yoga teachers are so susceptible to such beliefs and how it has divided the community in a dangerous way.
Tune in for the full conversation.
