Welcome to Yoga Voice! The idea for this podcast came as I crossed the Australian desert on my motorcycle. I rode 19000 klm around Australia and listened to a lot of podcasts along the way. I was influenced and inspired by what I was listening to and wanted to create a conversation about yoga with the beautiful and brave people who teach it. When Im riding I experience moments of profound clarity and presence. I become open to receive the teachings in whatever form they may come and am inspired to bring the practice into everything that I do. It is from this space of deep gratitude and wild adventure that Yoga Voice was born. I hope you enjoy and contribute to the evolving conversation of yoga.

Julia Mccabe

Julia Mcbabe! And she is, a total babe. There is something special about Julia and her classes. When I first took her class I couldn't put my finger on what it was that I loved so much and I think that's why I loved it so much- you digg? I think Julia's magic happens somewhere between earth momma desert dancer and ac/dc party girl..... that could just be me though. I think you'll have to take her class or go to Nicaragua with her and report back to me.
Check out her scholorship program, this is an amazing opportunity.... it really is. Its called The passion Project and the deadline is August 24th,

Josh Chen

Can you imagine teaching yoga at 16? Neither can I. Josh Chen, on the other hand can see no other way. He has such a great mix of innocence, wisdom and squish his cheeks cuteness. My favorite part is when he talks about how much hes grown from the ages of 15 to 16. Right, I think the lessons he learned in one year has taken me about 10! To each their own right??? Josh is a great reminder that our teachers come in all shapes, sizes and ages and if we keep our mind open we can learn from them all. Thank you Josh.
Here he is in action

Sjanie McInnis

Sjanz, as she is affectionately called, let me interview her for 90 whole minutes, all while her little bambinos snoozed. Sjanie, without a doubt, has been a very influential teacher in my life. Because of this I had a family of hyper active butterflies in my belly even though I have known her for years and she is one of the most accessible and humble teachers going. I wanted to do her students proud, she is so loved and I didn't want people to be listening and cursing my name because I didn't ask the questions they would have asked or I didn't allow space for her to drop any thought bombs. Lucky for me it's not hard to get the goods from Sjanie and no matter what she will make you stop and think. I was worried though, as I always am after an interview, that I didn't quite "get it" or that I didn't get to the heart of the teacher and that I didn't live up to my intention which is to add to the deeper conversation of yoga and possibly a deeper understanding of the teachings, possibly. Im going to keep on plugging away at it though and learn from each one because my motorcycle and the desert told me to.
Listen to her interview and then go to her blog to find out everything you need to know. 

She will also be teaching at the Wanderlust Festival in Whistler, B.C.  http://whistler.wanderlustfestival.com/

Are you going to Wanderlust?? Yes! lets play, it will be oh so fun!

Thank You for listening!
I would love to hear from you

Alex Mazerolle

Yay! This is my 10th episode!
Among many things, Alex Mazerolle si the founder and creator of Girlvana Yoga.

Girlvana brings the practice of yoga to teenage girls in an accessible and relevant context. I think we can all agree yoga would have helped navigate the muddy waters of high school, if only for an hour at a time. I think it's a bit obvious and redundant for me to sing the praises of the teachers who do the podcast, as if I'm going to bad mouth anyone, but Alex is seriously awesome! She was super bubbly and personable and very easy to interview, so easy I almost forgot we were recording at times.

Here is a video of Alex introducing Girlvana!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fr2gSKLkepU&feature=player_embeddedIf you live in Vancouver and know any teens who could use yoga send them to Alex!! Actually if you love in Vancouver and could use some yoga, send yourself to Alex! 
Thank you for listening!

Mark Eilers

Neti Neti, not this not that, a meditation Mark learned during his time at the Sivananda Ashram in Rishikish, India. Marks' Grandfather has lived as a swami at this ashram for over 40 years while his other Grandfather served as a minister in Vancouver, B.C. Mark is a solid guy with a lot to share and although he is not technically a yoga teacher I consider him to be a great source of inspiration and knowledge both experienced and studied.
Mentioned in the podcast:

Will Blunderfield

Tuned in, tapped in, turned on.  Will Blunderfield was so much fun to talk to, I felt like I was getting my own personal show complete with characters, singing and piano playing. I have never taken one of Wills classes but his reputation precedes him and I knew he would be a great person to have on the podcast.  I found myself at the same cafe as Will one afternoon so I took the opportunity to introduce myself and ask him to be on the podcast.  Immediately Will was on board and genuinely supportive of my adventures in podcasting and my intention behind Yoga Voice. Will told me about being a young gay man with no public role models, the power of eye liner and harem pants, The Secret, his struggle with depression and insecurities, humping stationary bikes in spin class and his vision of being the light house. Will has a lot of love to give and a lot to share, if you see him in a cafe or yoga studio do not hesitate to introduce yourself!! Thank you Will for another great conversation.
 Out the pink elephant!!

Daniel Shaw

Daniel is the second person I have interviewed who once lived in my current apartment. It has great hardwood floors and lots of natural light, its no wonder this apartment has attracted so many yoga people, or yogis I guess we are called. Daniel teaches all over Vancouver and gets himself to class on his trusted and loved fixed gear bicycle.  I learned a lot about Daniel in this interview and what I found most intriguing was his life as an aspiring body builder! Daniel holds sound healing workshops throughout the city so be sure to check out his latest one on Saturday June 9th at Eastside Yoga Studio from 2-4pm and again on July 14th, same time same place. You can find information for the work shop here, http://www.facebook.com/events/353008788093958/
