Voices of Yoga podcast is a place to listen to inspiring yoga stories and insights from yoga teachers and yogis from around the world. Often these stories highlight the benefits of yoga and in turn encourage beginners to start their yoga journey and more experienced yogis to delve deeper.
We initially created Voices of Yoga (previously YEDTalks) podcast to share insights and teachings about yoga for those new to yoga. We included our own personal yoga stories and how yoga came into our lives. We asked a few other yogis, who inspired us, to join us and share their story too. These personal yoga journeys became our most popular podcasts. We regularly received emails and comments from listeners saying how much they enjoyed hearing the variety of reasons why people found yoga, from overcoming depression, recovering from injury, loss, and good fortune and the benefits they experienced.
With so many interesting yogis out there with inspiring stories to share we knew we had to continue to share. Our new direction has lead us to becoming ‘Voices of Yoga’.
We (Lindsey Porter and Emma Frame) are both full time yoga teachers based in Scotland, UK. Coming from corporate careers in Banking and finance and the Media industry we love yoga in all its forms and are passionate about sharing its wisdom and benefits. Our podcasts are currently free but we do invite donations to reflect the insights and enjoyment you receive and for all the many hours of love and hard work we pour into making these what they are!
Find our voices of yoga podcasts on all recognised podcast platforms.
We are also more than podcasts.
Our passion for the benefits yoga can bring to all minds and bodies lead us to fundraise for SAMH the Scottish Association for Mental Health, raising over £2500 through creating a 2018 charity yoga calendar. We are proud to be Signatorys and the champions for the Mental Health Charter for Physical Activity and Sport - helping break down the barriers for people with mental health challenges to participate in activities such as yoga.
In Oct 2018 Lindsey lead a Parliamentary Reception on Yoga: Mental Health & Wellbeing at Scottish Parliament to MSPs, where the Minister for Mental Health opened with an address. This continues to have positive ripple effects helping spread awareness of the part yoga can play in supporting our mental health.
