Thoughts on a Life Well Lived

The Wandering Coach Podcast

TWC #15 - Elana Meta

Elana Meta is a dancer, teacher, choreographer and so much more. I came to know her at Wanderlust Whistler after watching her perform and attending her Breaking WaVes class. She is a beautiful mover, a beautiful person, and creator of the Meta Method, a way for people to connect with their bodies and create the time and space for personal growth. The Meta Methods provides a framework to find your path and access your true potential.

In this episode, Elana shares her story and how she came to connect her dance and movement with a larger message. We talk about self-work, developing a personal practice to insert some mindfulness and "response-ability" into your actions, and much more. 

This was a truly special conversation. She exudes so much conviction in her message and her path. Her commitment to truly live it inspires. I invite you to listen and share in our conversation. Enjoy.

Patrick is a local physical therapist and very knowledgeable about all things mobility and corrective movement.

TWC #8 - Slow Flow Yoga with Pixie Kastrup

This episode is a cool way for me to help Pixie out. Her mother wanted a recording of her "Slow Flow" class for when she is out of town. Pixie asked to borrow my digital recorder to record the class for her mom. We decided that posting it as a podcast would be a very mutually beneficial idea. She can now point her students to a free recording of one of her classes and this show will benefit from the broadened listener-ship. This episode will also serve a neat preview for her appearance on the show.

TWC#7 - Travel Stories with Adam Mulligan

This was my favorite podcast thus far. I had the chance to sit down with an old buddy to discuss some of his recent adventures and projects. Adam saw some of my podcast and website posts on Facebook and approached me about making some video content for the website. We spent several hours filming an interview about my travel plans and my motivation and aims for the podcast, blog, and website. Be on the lookout for the that video coming in the near future.

TWC #5 - Rebirth of the Podcast

I've decided that this podcast will take a bit of a different direction. In making the first several episodes I've come to a new understanding of what I want this podcast to become. I enjoyed the structure and flow of the shorter, solo episodes. This podcast will become a mostly solo venture upon my world travel embarkation, so why not start now? Give this episode a listen and see what the future holds for The Wandering Coach Podcast.
