Pamela Seelig began her yoga journey more than 25 years ago when an illness (Bell's Palsy) interrupted her Wall Street career. As part of her recovery from that diagnosis, she she began meditating and it brought her some amazing results. Not only did it speed up her recovery, but the impact of meditating at during that time in her life led to a lifelong pursuit of sharing yoga wisdom with others. In this interview, she joins me to talk about Stress Relief, Meditation and "Threads of Yoga," her new book.

What that means for you is whether or not you are currently practicing yoga, there will be something for you to glean from this conversation.

We talk about:

  • The importance of breath and breathing to calm down
  • Calming your nervous system.
  • Meditation and the various kinds of meditation that can help you deal with every day stress
  • Santosha, which means contentment or gratitude in Sanskrit
  • Breath practices to try right now, or anytime you need to re-center
  • Her new book

I feel like this weaves in so beautifully with the theme for season seven, which is all about intentional comfort and joy.
