List of Podcasts Paige enjoys

  • Stuff You Should Know – been around for over 10 years.  Topics vary and the two hosts are kind and full of knowledge.  Having a tough drive home?  Traveling?  Rushing around? Listen to the obscure topics and let it relax you. Plus it may put your own day into perspective.

  • DC Yoga Podcasts – New and the speaker is having talks with DC Yoga teachers to show the diversity of those teaching here in Washington, DC.  Topic will be based on that guest.

  • Jonathan Foust – Meditation Teacher and this is often a recording coming from his Monday night class.  You can’t attend his live class?  Then listen to his Dharma talk.  Most often the talk doesn’t include the times for silent meditation that he starts with.  His talks are so helpful though.  He was Paiges teacher at Kripalu.

  • LifeSpa Ayurveda Meets Modern Science – Dr John Douillard – Paiges has had the honor and privilege to study from him at Kripalu.  Has a wonderful way of explaining Ayurveda with scientific facts. He is also available on Yoga Journal for a six week on-line course.

  • Metta Hour with Sharon Salzberg – did you know there are different meditations?  Not everything is sound or mindfulness.   Sharon is an amazing author and teacher.  She often has guests on her podcast. Experience love or compassion mediation with Metta.

  • J Brown Yoga Talks – J has been interviewing Yoga Teachers from around the world for years now.  Although sometimes his talks seem to touch on mostly studio yoga teaching and the troubles of running the business, he does sometimes get those who teach out of that space.  So it introduces you to many different areas of practice such as prison yoga, elderly, and styles.

  • Clutch – a podcast from Icewater yoga – Some hosts like to lead the talk but this one is really great at asking good questions and letting the speaker explain.

  • Heart Wisdom Podcast – Jack Kornfield – very well known and respected meditation teacher.

  • Tara Brach – So many know her from her meditation lectures and books.  She teaches here in DC as well and can be found locally for her live meditations in the Bethesda area.

  • Curvy Yoga – Been around a long time – host is amazing and likes to talk about her experiences in the curvy world and often has speakers.

  • LOLA Community Podcast – good friend, Pleasance Lowengard Silicki – talks about intensions, health and has speakers from time to time as well.

  • Living It – New Podcast – the hosts just came out with a book and decided to also release a podcast.  On the podcast they interview speakers and sometimes refer to their book which compares the Yoga Sutras to modern day examples.   The hosts sometimes are more familiar with their styles of yoga and they are being enlightened by the guests knowledge and it may expand your awareness as well.
