Yoga Revolution: Facing Challenges with Yoga with Rane Bowen

Season #1

This week's guest is Rane Bowen (he/him), a long-time student of yoga and meditation. He shares his personal journey with stomach cancer, how the practices helped him cope with the emotional difficulties of a terminal (mis)diagnosis, and how he's deepening his connection to his Maori heritage.

Rane has an insatiable curiosity about the yoga teachings and how they can help people in their daily lives and in overcoming adversity. Alongside his wife Jo Stewart, he teaches yoga at Garden of Yoga, a home-based yoga studio, and co-hosts the Flow Artists Podcast, which features teachers and thinkers about yoga, meditation, social justice, and more. Jivana and Rane discuss how the yoga teachings connect to death and how spirituality can help us address suffering and tap into a deeper level of compassion. The two also consider how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the way we care for others and view freedom and collective care.
