Hello sweet-ones,

So happy to be here together today. Here’s to our second week of twice-weekly podcasts. Episode 148 of Samadhi Rush is a discussion and short pratyahara practice. In this episode, I chat about the significance of our sense of smell in the practice of yoga.
The podcast examines physiology, psychology, subtle anatomy and yoga philosophy on the power of smell.
We dive into muladhara chakra, the vrittis, the kleshas and pratyahara.
So happy to have you here for our second week of twice-weekly posts.
