Asia Nelson: on Yoga and Other Adventures

moving the podcast – interview from January 28, 2014

~~~

Episode 23. Asia talks to me about yoga and about her experience hosting an international travel tv series. She also shares all about the business she built around her passions for yoga, learning and teaching other people. I learn that yoga is really a mind-body workout, with physical, mental and emotional benefits, and that it’s perfectly okay to be multi-passionate!

Asia Icon

“It’s a living thing, you know? It is an actual relationship that you’re developing with yourself. So as long as there is something more for me to learn and to accept and to move through, then there will always be a role for yoga within my life.”

0:00 ~ 26 countries in 9 months
9:45 ~ “television is not an easy industry”
14:15 ~ finding yoga (by accident)

A clip I had to cut for length, where we talk about being multi-passionate:

“It doesn’t matter what your next thing is, as long as it’s creating more of the experience you want to have in the world.” ~ Asia Nelson
