Episode 175 – Dan Nevins – Yoga / audio

Yoga

Dan Nevins (@DanNevins on twitter) returns to discuss yoga with host Craig Price. Past guest (episode 97) Dan sits down with Craig in Washington DC for what Craig thought would be an informative chat about yoga but became an emotional story of coping with depression, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and discovery.  Being a popular speaker for the Wounded Warrior Project, Dan was afraid to ask anyone for help when he started to get depressed because so many saw him as a role model of recovery and perseverance.  It can be hard to ask for help because just showing a crack of your humanity to others can make them think you’re really in trouble when in fact, you just need someone to listen. Thankfully Dan found yoga and it has transformed his life and has shown him new ways to heal, get over his own doubts and shame and help his fellow soldiers deal with their PTSD. Of course Craig can’t be all serious so they discuss downward dog, passing gas in class and more. He even commits to a yoga class with Dan! An unexpectedly touching, emotional and real conversation with a person who has normal struggles just like the rest of us despite his inspiring story and life. A can’t miss episode for sure.

SPECIAL EVENT: This August 20th, 2015 at 6pm EST, join Dan in Bryant Park in New York City as he attempts to break the record for the world’s largest yoga class. Go to http://flavorpill.com/nyc/event/classes/bryant-park-yoga-thursday-august-20-2015 to RSVP for this FREE class.

Episode 127 – Barbara Dolan – Roller Derby / audio

Roller Derby

Barbara Dolan (@Derby_Lite on twitter) invites host Craig Price into her home to discuss roller derby. While in Chicago (birthplace of roller derby) this past spring, Craig couldn’t pass up a chance to sit down with the Queen B herself, Barbara Dolan to discuss the history of roller derby. They talk about the rules, what the positions are called and how Barbara has taken some of the fundamentals of roller derby and incorporated them into her fitness company Derby Lite where women of all ages practice the skills and drills of the sport of roller derby. While Craig remembers watching bits of roller derby on Saturday afternoons in the 70s and 80s, a resurgence in the past decade has really elevated to sport into not only a safer sport but something people can readily participate in. The two even figure out a cool derby name for Craig. 

At Derby Lite their Certified Instructors lead high energy Fitness Skating exercise classes for Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced skaters where ladies become healthier humans – physically and emotionally – as they learn to skate with a roller derby edge, no impact or competition. Each workout includes off-skates dynamic warm-ups, on-skates skills and drills, upper-body strength exercises and cool-down stretching. It’s a balanced, whole-body workout that’s never boring, shows progress week after week, and brings you into a welcoming community of women like no other. It’s fun, fitness and friends. But mostly fun.
