HTC: May 1, 2006 Shownotes

Welcome to the 30th edition of the Hip Tranquil Chick podcast: a guide to life on and off the yoga mat. Produced from the 600 sq. foot Pink Palace in Washington, DC.

Today’s podcast is a muse on being hip AND tranquil, topped of with a pose of the podcast, hip tranquil chick suggestions, hip tranquil chick chat, and fun podsafe music! View our shownotes at

Hip= external.
Tranquil= internal/substance behind style.
Chick= youthful spirit.

Hip Tranquil Chickness = a philosophy of living. Create a signature style. Let challenging yoga poses help you gain confidence and take risks off the mat. Get smart about your finances. Let your environment at home and work be soothing. Be a conscious citizen—volunteer, give back, connect with a charity, help others. Let creativity infuse your world. Do things differently. Find your professional passion and let it grow. Determine what your vision is and take steps daily toward it. Find relationships that feed your spirit. Make self-care a part of your daily routine.

Hip Tranquil Chick Chat:
“I listened to your post-Tobago podcast while on my Sunday run this morning, and the mention of Australians on your Frapper has shamed me into doing something I’ve been meaning to do for ages – write you an email to say thanks for being so inspiring and keep up the good work!

I stumbled upon your podcast earlier this year when browsing through iTunes for something to help get me back on the mat after a time away. The first Hip Tranquil Chick podcast I listened to was “get your yoga on” and it was love at first listen! Since then, I have found a studio just down the road from me which I attend regularly and I am beginning to develop my own home practice, something I have always wanted to do.

But it’s not just on the mat that you’ve provided me with inspiration and motivation. This is a big year for me, because I’ve finally decided to take a leap and pursue further studies in my true passion, mathematics. In September, my beautiful boyfriend and I will be moving halfway across the world to Canada where I’ve been given the opportunity to study under my mathematical hero. We’re so excited to be embarking on such a wonderful journey. Your musings on taking risks and leaps have helped me to remain open, optimistic and fearless in the face of this major life change.

I’ve also found value in your insights into creativity. I’m looking forward to reading The Artists’s Way (next on my reading list) and applying its teachings to my life and work. Contrary to what some may believe, creativity is fundamentally important in mathematics!

Thanks again, Kimberly, for your inspirational work. It’s had quite an effect on my life, in more ways than just what I’ve mentioned here.”

Point d'orgue: We’ve expanded the community to MySpace, please connect with me virtually there, too!
