Episode 10: Shannon McFarlin on Talkspace and Internet Therapy

This is a super interesting interview! I got a chance to speak to Shannon McFarlin who is a therapist from Talkspace. Talkspace is one of the biggest platforms for internet-based psychotherapy for an affordable price. I do private online therapy, but I was not familiar with larger platforms like Talkspace, so this was totally enlightening for me. I walked away with a very positive impression.

If you or a loved one is thinking about trying out online therapy, check out http://talkspace.com and be sure to visit Shannon and say thank you over at http://shannonmcfarlin.com.

Episode 8: Lindsay Istace on Rage Yoga and Being Zen as F**k


In this episode, I interview Lindsay Istace who is the creator or Rage Yoga (http://rageyoga.com). You have probably heard of Rage Yoga already since it blew up on the news and social media. It is an alternative approach to yoga that strips away the BS and encourages you to release your inner tension through the use of a few choice expletives and “fist unicorn” additions to your normal yoga poses. This was a really insightful interview and I hope that you enjoy it as much as I did.

Please take a minute to check out all things rage yoga:
