#45 The Science of Yoga with Eddie Stern
Play • 1 hr 9 min

On the podcast today I welcome Eddie Stern

Eddie is a yoga teacher, author, and lecturer from New York City. He is known for his multi-disciplinary approach to furthering education and access to yoga, as well as his teaching expertise in Ashtanga Yoga.

His bestselling first solo book, One Simple Thing: A New Look at the Science of Yoga, examines in clear and simple language the underlying neurophysiological mechanisms that make yoga an effective practice.

We had a really great conversation today and some of the topics that I discussed with Eddie were:

  • How a punk rocker in the 70s became a Yoga teacher to the celebrities in New York
  • His time spent travelling in India and learning from the great masters of Yoga while on his travels
  • Why consciousness is an important concept to fathom and how the process of learning 'who we are' is important, rather the achievement
  • The studies that Eddie has been involved in, that demonstrate Yoga as an important tool for cardiovascular health
  • The vagus nerve as a root to mindfulness and changing your autonomic nervous system function

Do have a look at at the Summary and Guest Info sections on The Doctor's Kitchen Website where I've added a ton of more information that Eddie has been involved in and also some really interesting articles on The Vagus Nerve which I know you will find super interesting!

And have a look on The Doctor's Kitchen YouTube Channel - at the video I cooked with Eddie
