Yoga Off The Mat - The Movement For Modern Life Podcast
Kat Farrants

Kat Farrants, founder and CEO of Movement For Modern Life, talks with experts in different fields and looks at them from the point of view of a yogic lifestyle. With her discoveries, we learn how to take our Yoga practice off the mat and live a happy, healthy, sustainable life.

In this discussion we discuss what yoga teaching has to do with living a meaningful life, how we might find meaning in our lives, and the importance, as yogis, of living a life full of honesty and integrity and challenging complacency. Norman Blair is a champion of yoga teachers in his work highlighting teacher’s poor pay, and is known for being unafraid to just do the right thing. In a world where for so many people, teaching yoga is just on the mat and has nothing to do with how we live the rest of our lives, Norman shines a light on how our yoga practice is an everyday practice of living a life with meaning and integrity. In this discussion we talk about the small steps we might take to become a constructive agent of change, and how we can become more conscious influencers of change in the world.
