Motivation Monday is a new weekly series on YBC® where we'll unveil that week's podcast episode of Namaslay with YogaByCandace®, a few inspirational uplifting or interesting bits from around the web, and new books, finds and other goodies our team is loving.
The week ahead is looking bright! We're starting our annual Santorini yoga retreat and on the schedule is lots of beach time, free time for boating, kayaking and wine tours, and, of course, yoga. I'm also in full-on prep mode for Namaslay® YTT in Tennessee, which takes place at the end of the month. I've got an exciting new docket of teachers lined up and I am so looking forward to helping a new group of students on their way to becoming teachers through the incredible team I've put together. In my down time, I've been reading a lot (whipped through this book in just a few days), and getting out to explore the gorgeous town of Oia here in Santorini. I found this beautiful linen wrap that I'm pretty sure is meant to be a jacket, but I decided to throw it on with a belt I got at the local leather guy down the street, and voila! A dress. It's handmade and they don't sell online, but here's a similar version.
So a few Mondays ago, you heard Part 1 of a Namaslay® podcast on what's been sliding into my DMs. I answered three reader-submitted questions that ranged from what I eat, to how to find a community in a new city. In today's Part 2 of that podcast I have more of what's been sliding into my DMs and this one will go down a little differently. I'd love to know if you have some questions you've been wanting to ask and what you think of this new style of answering, so comment below!
Namaslay® with YogaByCandace® Season 2, Episode 10: In today’s episode I’m answering a reader request to do a Q&A about Real Life. I'll discuss my secrets to self-care, if I would have done my Namaslay® book any differently, and how I deal with the insecurities of an online presence. However, different from most podcasts, after an Instagram poll, exactly half of you wanted to hear this via our YouTube channel vlog style, and the other half of you wanted it via podcast, so i’m going to answer half here and half on YouTube. I hope you enjoy! It is available on iTunes, Google Play, Google Podcasts, Spotify and pretty much anywhere you listen to podcasts. Or, you can also listen here. And if you have a second, would you mind taking this survey? We just want to get some demographics about who's listening to the podcast. Thanks!
