For more information visit: www.doctor-yogi.com Instagram: @doctoryogi Facebook:@doctoryogiandrewI'm really looking forward to sharing his delightful interview with you and as with Caroline Shola Arewa last week he talks about the difference between a very formal, very long daily yoga practice and a much more evolved decades later practice.As you listen, I encourage you to think about some of your own self-care practices and things that perhaps you've been quite rigid about in the past. How might you go easier on yourself now? So I hope you enjoy listening as much as I enjoyed talking to Andrew and let me know how you get on.And if you’d like to join the chakra journey, Love your WHOLE self 2024, you can sign up as a free or Extra Embodied member at evemc.substack.com ~ if you're listening later, you can still access these posts and moreWHO AM I?
