Ep. 5: J. Miles

J. Miles joins Jivana this week to discuss what it means "to go through the fire of life" as yoga practitioners and the importance of maintaining our practice as yoga teachers. Creator of Maha Vira Yoga, J has been dancing to the rhythm of life since childhood. A yoga practitioner, martial artist, bodyworker, retired breakdancer, community activist, and the son of a Baptist minister, J has been learning and studying Eastern arts and philosophy for nearly two decades. Over the years, he has crafted a style tempered by real life experience, humor, yogic philosophy, and the importance of breath as a guide and source of strength. He opens up about what it means to teach yoga and live as a Black man and how to maintain a feeling of joy and abundance despite various challenges in his life and community. Jivana and J describe the theme of this episode as "spiritual practice as compost" and explain why cultivating good soil helps to cultivate a good life.
