“Perspective is everything when you are experiencing the challenges of life.” {Joni Eareckson Tada}

73 | theTYPEAhippie Podcast | ChiCast: Transitioning With Time, Expectations and Faith (Petra Strand)

I met Petra a long time ago when we were both embarking on a 200 hour yoga certification. She’s lived a lot of life since then. She’s become more authentic and is living a life that is more in alignment with who she is. I stumbled on an older email thread from when we were on that yoga journey and it struck me what can happen in 10-11 years as the email sender was Peter rather than Petra. We have the potential to grow and change and become more vulnerable, authentic, real and add to that the...

70 | theTYPEAhippie Podcast | ChiCast: Surviving Sexual Abuse (Chidimma Ozor)

So this week I just shared from the heart about my own experience as a survivor of sexual abuse when I was 7 years old. I also discuss current events around #metoo and the predators of Congress, Hollywood, women’s gymnastics and in everyday living. I hope this reckoning is a wake up call. I also talk about what has led us here, the common disrespect that men** display towards women under the guise of humor, admiration and more. Chidimma Ozor is a soul coach, podcaster, educator, writer,...


69 | theTYPEAhippie Podcast | ChiCast: Surviving Sexual Assault (Ksenija Simmons)

I am looking forward to meeting Ksenija because our souls are already connected, we just need to be in the same physical place at the same time. She provides her experience as someone who has lived in multiple places and has had a wealth of unique lived experiences. My passion for yoga came from a journey of finding healing in my own story of experiencing trauma. The first time I stepped onto my mat for a Holy Yoga class I knew something was different. As any beginner would, I experienced...


68 | theTYPEAhippie Podcast | ChiCast: Surviving Ovarian Cancer (Christina Mensah)

I knew that Christina Mensah was a cool chick the first time we were texting. She extended grace to me when I was going back and forth (aka being indecisive) and had such an easy way of being.

65 | theTYPEAhippie Podcast | ChiCast: Surviving Losing a Parent (Tonia McIntosh)

I love Tonia. We’ve known each other for years when we both lived in Las Vegas. She attended tons of my Yin and hot yoga classes when I first began teaching yoga at a local hot yoga studio and we became fast friends. Spending time before or after class catching up. We always made time to celebrate birthdays and life together over meals. She’s a facinating, kind, loving and tolerant human. Her quiet strength is remarkable. Tonia McIntosh was born and raised in Michigan and later moved to...

Michael Smith is overwhelmingly an easy going man despite his life experiences. He has an easy laugh and adores the people in his life.

Michael Smith was born and raised in Grand Rapids, MI and is a descendant of the original Black settlers to the Central Michigan area. He graduated early from Creston High School at...

Salem Afangideh is a lawyer, a yoga instructor, and chief space creator at THRIVE African Girl - a hub for African women. She is dedicated to using her voice and...

59 | theTYPEAhippie Podcast | ChiCast: Racism, The State of the Union & #BlackGirlMagic (Maythinee Washington)

Maythinee and I connected over laughs because a woman was convinced I was here. Friends, we look NOTHING alike. We’re both beautiful, yes. We both teach yoga, yes. And we’re both women of color (WOC), yes. She is multiracial with longer, wavy hair and I’m Nigerian-American with jet black tightly curled hair that is short. These are some of things we talk about along with the state of the Union, activism, advocacy, privilege, racism and sexism amongst other things. Maythinee’s bio: Coming...


58 | theTYPEAhippie Podcast | ChiCast: Recovery, Buddhism & Life (Noah Levine)

Noah Levine is one of those people that puts you at ease when you’re in his presence.
