hip tranquil chick podcast #50: happy anniversary!

HTC: September 24 2006 Shownotes

Welcome to the 50th anniversary of the Hip Tranquil Chick podcast: a guide to life on and off the yoga mat. Produced from the Pink Palace in Washington, DC.

Today’s podcast is a celebration of our 50th episode together, topped off with some exciting news including a HTC retreat AND the location of the DC book and CD launch, along with a sequence of the podcast, and some groovy podsafe music by the artist on my new CD! View our shownotes at

I was lucky to interview 5 special listeners, this show wouldn’t exist without you. It’s exciting to share the voices that have emerged from the HTC community. I’m truly honored to have the chance to connect with each of you on this level.


1. How has the hip tranquil chick blog and/or podcast affected your life?
2. What does being a hip tranquil chick mean to you?
3. What hip and tranquil steps are you taking toward leading a mindfully extravagant life?
4. What role does yoga play in your life?
5. Anything else you'd like to share?

A special thanks to:
