hip tranquil chick #86: ayurveda 301

Bonjour! Welcome to the 86th edition of the Hip Tranquil Chick podcast: a guide to life on and off the yoga mat.

Today’s menu features a must-have pose in On the Mat, an insightful interview with Anne Thiel on Ayurveda in Off the Mat, and we’ve got Omwork and Savvy Sources for you too. View our shownotes at

On the Mat: bow

Off the Mat: Today’s podcast is on ayurveda with Anne Thiel. Anne is a teacher and the prenatal program coordinator at tranquil space. She has worked as a midwife in germany and delivered 450 babies before moving to the united states to enter a PhD program in german studies. She later left the academic world and has since then worked in various positions in environmental NGOs. Initially, she began practicing yoga to find relief from stressful dissertation-writing process, but has discovered that it is much richer than just a stress management tool.

: To encourage a sense of diving deeper into today’s podcast, I will post Omwork relating to this segment on this segment on our HTC forum. Please connect with fellow HTCs there and play with the following:

1. What is your dosha?
2. In what ways can you incorporate more cooling practices into your everyday?

Savvy Sources:

Haute Stuff Shoppe: Shop online for the book, CD, leopard print scarf, or crystal tee.

Signature Style: Capelet

Community Corner: Share what fun hip and tranquil events around the book and/or philosophy you have going on. Check out our desktop, ecards, and forum on our connect page!

Soirees, Chats, Booksignings & Retreats: Escape with me and like-minded women to our first international excursion in Costa Rica in September. Details for all special events at

Au Revoir: Share your hip tranquil chickness with me, request show ideas, or pass along feedback by e-mailing me at A reminder that we’re on MySpace and Frappr, so please connect with the community virtually there, too!

Thanks Kimberly! I love Anne! Ayurveda really appeals to me. I am so kapha its not funny. I wonder how far following an ayurvedic practice would go towards maintaining thyroid health?
