Greetings Rainbow Warriors!
I’m still in the middle of a forest in France, and ready for you to join me here in this Wilderness Wellness Experience through June 23rd, anytime it’s convenient for you for as few or as many days as you wish. We’re in a 300 year old eco lodge and spa in the forest, surrounded by pristine nature, and I’m teaching yoga here twice a day.
Check the show notes or my Visionary Lifestyle and Podcast Page for details on that.
Our guest today is one of my sheros, the one and only, Seane Corn.
Seane Corn is an internationally celebrated yoga teacher known for her impassioned activism, unique self-expression, and inspirational style of teaching.

I’m so excited to bring you this interview with one of my biggest sheroes! I met Seane back in 2011 when I invited her to join me teaching yoga in Los Angeles on 11/11/11 during the Occupy protest on the lawn at City Hall.
She showed up in spades on that day, bringing her whole tribe from Off the Mat Into the World as well as organizing all the top yoga teachers in LA to join us. It was a phenomenal day that I’ll never forget. Make sure to check out the show notes for pics of that.
I’ve interviewed Seane several times for different publications over the years because she stands, so firmly, for all the things I deeply care about. She is karma yoga in action.
She is a huge role model for me and so many others.
We recorded this interview last year in New York City at the United Nations on International Yoga Day where Seane was teaching a class to celebrate the occasion, with all my Rishikesh yoga tribe on site too. It was a truly spectacular day to be a yogi!
And guys, we’re almost at that time again. This Summer Solstice, June 21st, will be the 4th International Day of Yoga! I’ll be teaching in France and would love love love for you to join me here to celebrate that and join a worldwide group of people who recognize the tremendous benefits of yoga.
Seane and I deep dive here into what it means to be a yogi. I looooove this conversation and I just know you will find lots of inspiration in it too.
