Episode 6: Kathryn Budig – Body Positivity, Hard Work, & Aiming True

This is where the subhead goes where we talk about how you need to do your research and two other things 

Hello Yogaland!

On this episode I talk to Kathryn Budig. Kathryn (@kathrynbudig) is an internationally celebrated yoga teacher and she’s just come out with her second book, Aim True: Love Your Body Eat Without Fear Nourish Your Spirit and Discover True Balance.

I’ve known Kathryn for about a decade and she’s the real deal — a gem in the yoga world. She’s hard-working, deeply knowledgeable, an adept practitioner, a compassionate teacher, and a creative, funny soul. In the course of our talk she shared:

  • The story behind her “Aim True” message
  • The surprising pose that was out reach for her when she started practicing
  • Thoughts on body dysmorphia and creating healthier body image within the yoga community
  • The importance of honing your craft instead of focusing on popularity
  • Her favorite and least favorite yoga poses
  • How she came up with the term “meat suit”

And many more interesting tidbits. I hope you enjoy it.

“I get comments like, ‘Oh it’s so great to see you be so comfortable with your body.’ I’m a size 4. If my size 4 body is viewed as something that isn’t tiny in the yoga world, we’re doing something severely wrong.” — Kathryn Budig
