hip tranquil chick podcast #87: scentology

Bonjour! Welcome to the 87th 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 Yamilee Bastien on Scentology in Off the Mat, and we’ve got Omwork and Savvy Sources for you too. View our shownotes at

On the Mat: Reclined twist

Off the Mat: Today’s podcast is on scentology with Yamilee Bastien. Yamilee Bastien is an international business advisor, motivational speaker, and entrepreneur. Her career and life path have been guided by the deeply-held belief that we are here to facilitate the realization
of human potential. This belief brought her to the field of international development, where she served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Benin (West Africa) and then worked for 12 years on social and economic development programs in Africa and the Caribbean. Now as her guiding principle is evolving to include spiritual growth and creativity, her activities revolve around conducting transformational leadership workshops, coaching people through career transitions, and leading yoga retreats. She has led 6 yoga retreats in Africa, the US, and India. When not running to catch a plane, Yamilee makes her own aromatherapy skincare products and raises funds to support entrepreneurship training programs for young people in Africa. She has recently launched an import/export company and is writing a children’s book on the 8 limbs of yoga.

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

1. What is your favorite scent?
2. How can you incorporate more play and scents into your everyday?
