About this episode
My special guest for this episode is Hope Zvara. Hope helps people, just like you, breathe and enjoy life again. Her goal is to help you reach your full potential so you don’t have to struggle to find what works because that can be frustrating. In this episode, we talked openly about Hope’s eating disorder that she struggled with for years, and how yoga became her weekly ritual of second chances for her to get her life together. Hope also shared her heartbreaking story of losing her daughter Faith, after only 20 minutes here on Earth, and the lessons she’s learned from that experience that she can use every single day of her life.
One Big Takeaway
You can cultivate tools and skills in yoga, like breathing and learning how to shift your mind’s focus, and learning how to live in your body. That means learning how to be OK with the skin that you’re in regardless of the thoughts and feelings you’re having in that moment. This is critical in a yoga practice where you learn about being in the moment and staying in a yoga pose even if you don’t feel comfortable and even if you might not like it. This is a mirror for everyday life when we’re in situations we don’t like or aren’t comfortable with, and have to learn how to let those feelings pass. You can learn these skills on the yoga mat and then take them off the mat.
Hope expressed gratitude for her husband, and had some very kind words to say about him.
