On this Thrivers Podcast episode Donny gets me to answer all of my least favourite questions such as “To what extent am I self-taught and to what extent do I follow the path of my teachers?” and “What are the biggest misunderstandings that I resolved over time?”. He even gets me to talk about my past (shudder) which I generally prefer to remain a big secret (haha). We are also talking about who influenced me the most and how I ended up teaching yoga (At the time I was a garbage truck driver. The truck broke down in front of a yoga studio and the teacher on that day hadn’t showed up ….just kidding). Anyway, the podcast is a massive hoot…
