Emmy Singer on the Union of Opposites
Y’all are about to be shook when you hear that my guest for this episode is, wait for it… a YOGA TEACHER. Why yes, I *am* hilarious since 4 of my first 6 guests have been yoga teachers — but, hallooo, so much more than only that, and each one a gem in her own right. This week’s guest is Emmy Singer, founder of Inner Light Yoga studio and one of my biggest inspirations and teachers in the yoga world. Like a few of my other guests so far, Emmy is a fellow Nashvillian —and unbeknownst (isn't that a fucking great word? hah) to me until we recorded, originally hails from upstate New York very near last week’s guest, Sarah Jane Chapman (www.wonderwelltherapy.com/blog/wtfp-07). Hello, small world! In this episode, Emmy and I talk about: * the winding path that landed her in Nashville, where she and her husband Lee opened up the city’s first music-based yoga studio, Inner Light Yoga (where I am so fortunate to get to be a part of the team) * the importance of healers and teachers of all kinds being REAL as opposed to trying to seem like you have all the answers * our shared curiosity about astrology, tarot, past life regression, and dreams, with some tips for beginning your own dream analysis * how she views union of opposites as a framework for living — stillness and movement, connection and solitude, hustle and heart * simple practices for opening up a little more to kindness, compassion, and non-judgment * our musings on the law of attraction, the pieces that make most sense to us, and where we see its limitations For full show notes, head over to www.wonderwelltherapy.com/blog/wtfp-08 . And if you dig this episode, it would mean so much if you'd share it with a friend or on your socials, and rating/review on iTunes (www.bit.ly/WTFP-review) helps more people find it!

Sarah Jane Chapman on Body Liberation, Yoga, and Spirituality
I recently had the privilege of interviewing Sarah Jane Chapman, a massage therapist, yoga teacher, and heart-of-gold human who I am lucky to call a friend. In the conversation, Sarah Jane and I delved into: * why she believes “yoga always wins” and how her personal practice and teaching have evolved * how getting diagnosed with diabetes further complicated her eating disorder * the practice that was most transformational in healing her mindset from toxic diet culture * spending time in nature, gardening, sustainable farming, and seasonal eating as ways of connecting with spirituality and honoring our interconnectedness with the earth * making the tarot relevant and useful in day-to-day life And just an audio heads up — on the morning we were recording, Sarah Jane was having some laptop issues so used her phone for the recording, so there were a few vibrations in the second half of the interview, but not too bad. About Sarah Jane Chapman Sarah Jane Chapman was born in Upstate New York where she would spend her days climbing trees and laying in the grass. She started practicing yoga at age 14, which helped her through some of the most difficult times of her life. In 2012, she traveled to Rishikesh, India where she became certified in Hatha Yoga, and shortly thereafter moved to Nashville, Tennessee. Wanting to offer more to students and expand her knowledge of the body, Sarah Jane attended the Mind Body Institute in 2015 to begin her work as a massage therapist. She now offers a plethora of body work and Reiki, as well as astrology and tarot readings. Sarah Jane lives in east Nashville with her husband and pitbull, still climbing trees and laying in the grass. You can find her on instagram @ sarahjanechap.
