hip tranquil chick podcast #106: graceful edge

Welcome to the 106th 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, getting your groove on with Elayne Chow in Off the Mat, and we’ve got Omwork and Savvy Sources for you too. View our shownotes at

On the Mat: Down Dog – great stretch for calves

Off the Mat: Today’s podcast is an interview with Elayne Chow. After many years of management consulting, Elayne left the corporate world to live her dream of spreading the love for leading a fun-filled adventurous life with like-minded women.

Elayne was tired of the constant focus on promoting physical activity to lose weight and improve appearance. So she started Graceful Edge to inspire women to get out there, all in the spirit of having fun.

Originally from Canada, Elayne is partial to all things cool. Winter running, skiing, toques for every occasion and ice cream. Visit to learn more about upcoming events, great tidbits on gear and apparel, and check out the great panel of experts (including moi).

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 activity has always intrigued you?
2. What steps can you take to start it?
3. How can you infuse flair into your outdoor passions?

Yay! Yay! YAY!!!! I love this Podcast! I'm about 20 minutes in, and this is awesome! I picked up the book Backcountry Betty from Jennifer Worick and I'm laughing my way through it. I'm no Betty, but I'm definitely a Hip Backcountry Chick. Thanks for this podcast - I LOVE IT! :)
