episode 17: yoga & slacklining w/ guests Rachel Sherron & Mike Matrejek (part 1)
In this episode, we talk with two really amazing souls and they just so happen to be married. Rachel is a yoga psychotherapist. In her counseling sessions she utilizes talk therapy, yoga poses, breathing techniques, and meditation to release symptoms related to stress, anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress, and addiction. We discuss her journey and why yoga is so important in her life and what it can do for others. Her husband Mike talks to us about slacklining, which is a bit like tight rope walking. You use a form of webbing that is tensioned between two anchor points to balance. This is Mike's form of meditation. It allows him to sync up body and awareness and allow intuition and instinct to kick in. Mike started The Chicago Slackliners Association which has over 300 members who meet up across Chicago and slackline. He also started Breathe: a Slacklining and Discovery Festival. Breathe is the manifestation of a dream to create a collaborative community of like-minded individuals who value balance, mindfulness and fostering a creative lifestyle. It serves to promote a deeper connection to the self - whether spiritual or physical - and the surrounding environment.Stay tuned for part 2 where we will go more in-depth on these subjects. This was a very meaningful conversation and we hope you can feel the good energy vibes coming through the podcast.To find out more about Rachel and her services, visit her website http://www.rachelsherronmatrejek.com/ To find out more about slacklining in chicago, visit http://www.chicagoslacklinersassociation.com/To check out Breathe, slacklining & discovery festival (started by Mike) head to http://www.discoverbreathe.com/
