hip tranquil chick podcast #107: get your ayurveda on

Welcome to the 107th 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 ayurveda on with Anne Thiel in Off the Mat, and we’ve got Omwork and Savvy Sources for you too. View our shownotes at

On the Mat: prasarita padottanasana

Off the Mat: Today’s podcast is an interview with Anne Thiel. Anne is a teacher and the prenatal program coordinator at tranquil space. she completed the 200-hour yoga alliance -approved teacher training at tranquil space, is a certified prenatal yoga teacher.

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 ngo's.

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 are some nurturing rituals you could incorporate into your daily routine? (e.g. taking 10 minutes to sit and sip a cup of your favorite tea, try the daily oil massage in the morning)
2. How can you warm yourself: body, mind and soul? Create a "soothing box" with something soft to touch, a picture of something or somebody you love, your favorite tea, a candle and/or incense - use often; if you travel, take it with you
3. How can you slow down? Can you stay seated for just 5-10 minutes after you finished a meal; can you take 20 minutes out of your day to do something quiet you love (read, meditate, listen to music)

Haute Holidays: Shop online for my new retail therapy page complete with the Hip Tranquil Chick book, yoga CDs, and tranquilista gems. Here at chez moi, we wanted to encourage the sharing of hip tranquil chickness with others over the impending holidays or as a "thinking of you" gift for your favorite leopard-print loving girlfriends.
