Episode 93 – Yoga teacher Kathryn Budig on aiming true, goddess Diana, and how she approaches failure.

Woo hoo! I’m interviewing Kathryn Budig in today’s episode. If you haven’t yet heard about Kathryn, then I must tell you: Kathryn is an internationally known Yoga teacher, author and founder of Aim True Yoga. She is the Women’s Health Magazine yoga expert and a contributor for The Huffington Post, Yoga Journal, Gaiam, The Daily Love and MindBodyGreen.

She is also famous for her arm balances. Don’t believe me? Look at that.

Or, that…

This arm balance seems harder. Maybe 6 months for that? 1 year?

In this interview I am satisfying my curiousity about Kathryn, goddess Diana, and how Kathryn handles failure. As a Greek I am more than proud to discover how Goddess Diana from the Greek mythology acted as an inspiration for her. Let’s start watching!

  • Why yoga? What has a teacher like Kathryn gotten from yoga? (3.30)
