I’m so happy to share this episode of Yoga Stories Project with you! I loved talking to Brian Leaf.

He’s a funny, insightful, and just plain real guy using the tools of yoga to live well and share with others. 

Brian shares how yoga healed his sickness as a teenager and why he needs the postures now more than ever.

Listen for his advice for parents who want more mindfulness. And you’ll love his idea of what it would be like if the Dalai Lama were stuck in the house with kids for 3 days.

If you are a parent, you will laugh-out-loud (as I did) at Brian’s book, Misadventures of a Parenting Yogi.

And if you love yoga and self-discovery, you’ll love his memoir, Misadventures of a Garden State Yogi. It chronicles his quest for healing, equanimity, and ultimately, happiness. I really loved and recommend both books.
