In this episode I talk with Strala Yoga co-founder, best-selling author, and mama to six-year-old Daisy, Tara Stiles. Tara shares the unexpected ways that both yoga and Tai Chi have helped her manage her energy as a mom and the joys and challenges that arise with each new stage of parenting. She also shares the tips she’s learned for getting through challenging days with a little one and super-practical ways that we can use our body position to conserve energy (including an especially helpful tip for ending a conversation when you need to!)
Other topics we cover:
- Caring for our own parents as they age and navigating the grief we experience after losing a parent.
- Changing priorities and being okay with letting things go.
- Observations on being both a yoga teacher and a mom.
- And why you might just want to take up knitting!
Tara Stiles is the co-founder of Strala Yoga, best-selling author, and well-being expert.
