Last week’s episode on breathing generated a number of comments and we continue this week with an interview with one of our Beach Walks audience members, Celeste Dickson. Celeste is a yoga teacher, and comes at it with a very compassionate perspective. She used to be an overweight person, and remembers well the discomfort and sense of being out of place. She is determined to encourage all kinds of people to join her classes and is a very encouraging instruction.

Beach Walk Audio 9 – Breathing Brings Joy to Life

beachwalkaudio graphicBreathing techniques for stress reduction.

One of the main reasons I go to beach every day is to re-center myself, to wash away stress, to remember the things in life that I so easily forget. Like how to breathe when I am tense. Today’s episode is on one of my favorite techniques, a simple counting method that I find very easy and very quick.

Have you tried it? What other techniques do you like to practice? Share ’em with us please!

Beach Walk 57 – Daily Practice Works for Me

I’ve been thinking about the process of making a daily video, and despite the work involved, I love how it is freeing me from much of my perfectionism.

h3. About Today’s Show

I used to not try things if I didn’t have enough time or skill to do them really well. It was the curse of that saying, “Anything worth doing is worth doing well.” Now, we’re proving to each other via the wild popularity of podcasting and video blogging that, “Anything worth doing is worth doing poorly!” I have realized that people can enjoy my show regardless of the flaws I might see. And I am enjoying my show, so much, precisely because I don’t have to be perfect. I just get to be me.

None of that precludes the fact that I have a ton of ideas (and so does secret cameraman) and those will be fun to play with too at some point we think.

But for now, this “practice” is working dakine for me.

Tip: If you leave a message on the conch, please speak up so we can hear you! It’s noisy out there by the wind and waves. 🙂
