This week I’m joined by yoga teacher, author and my friend, Jennifer Pastiloff. In this episode we discuss how to live from a place of love, accepting and being true to yourself, self-compassion, finding beauty in unexpected places and so much more.
Jen Pastiloff offers a unique style of teaching through her workshop “On Being Human”, which is based on her bestselling book of the same name. She describes these workshops as “a hybrid of yoga related movement, writing, sharing out loud, letting the snot fly, and the occasional dance party.” She has been featured on Good Morning America, New York Magazine, Health Magazine, CBS News and more for her unique teachings which she has taught to thousands of women in sold-out workshops all over the world.
