Zero Waste Vegan Chef Max La Manna: One Conversation Can Change Your Life

Can one conversation really change the course of your entire life? For Max La Manna, chef, eco-advocate and global zero waste champion, it did. In this episode, Max and I chat about how one short conversation with a couple in Hawaii a few years back sparked his passion and interest in the plant-based, vegan and now zero waste movement. We chat about: * Max's amazing parents and the role they played in where he is now * Moving from New York to London and the differences in the future of food in both * Where the zero waste, plastic-free movement is right now * What small steps we can all do to help * What happens when skeptics cross his path * What his Earth Day plans are * And of course, being an amazing chef, we discussed Max's favorite meal Max's infectious, joyful attitude toward what we all can do together in the zero waste arena has garnered him global attention and a following that has us all smiling ear-to-ear as we take a step toward our health and our communities.

Yoga's Path Back Home with Kevin Naidoo

We get lost, each and every one of us. Something happened. Maybe many things happened and at some point, we pick ourselves back up and start the walk back home. In this episode, I was truly honored to spend time with one of the most beautiful yoga souls, Kevin Naidoo. We discussed his amazing path to yoga, which was paved with the stones of addiction, lack of self-love and nearly going blind just 2 years ago. Here, Kevin will take you through the streets of London, the beaches of the Caribbean, the yoga-culture in Vancouver, and then finally to where Dear Kevin is today, Home! If you want to learn more about Kevin and his sacred offerings, please check out the following: Instagram: @kevinnaidooyoga Facebook: @kevinnaidooyoga Bali Spirit Festival (where Kevin will be hosting a session): www.balispiritfestival.com And his website: www.kevinnaidooyoga.com Kevin and I would love to hear from you on any questions or comments you have on this episode.

Wellness Lessons from Dr. Seuss and Kurt Cobain

Have you ever wondered what some famous people were thinking? Where did their genesis come from? How did their physical and emotional state of mind color what they left us? In this episode, I look at two famous men from recent history: Dr. Seuss and Kurt Cobain. Although seemingly worlds apart, Dr. Seuss and Kurt Cobain's lives had some similar threads. We look at what Dr. Seuss was thinking when writing The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, as it is a important reminder to us all of how art can heal, how from each of our individual sorrows can come greatness and joy, and how sometimes we all write stories not necessary for others, but things that we need to hear. With Kurt, I examined his mind-body type. From a young age he complained of having intense stomach issues, which is very common for Vata/Vata mind-body types like he was. We look at what can be done to help amazing souls like Kurt today and how to best understand this beautiful, gifted mind-body type. By looking at the wellness journey's of others, we can maybe see things on our own path that can now make sense, be understood. I so value each and every comment you take the time to leave me here. I am always looking for new show ideas and questiosn from you, so do contact me either here or on Instagram, Facebook or on my site www.thedetoxyogi.com.

The Future of Eating Out with Giorgo Mantas & Rob Bohay

"FINALLY!" is what your tastebuds, your digestive systems, and pretty much every other square inch of you is saying as the latest food trend is proving to not be a trend at all, but here to stay.  In this episode, I sat down with Giorgo Mantas and Rob Bohay, the visionaries behind Verde Juice Bar in Winnipeg, Canada, as we talked, well, food! How the hottest wellness movement of opening a plant-based restaurant became their reality, why organic is a no-brainer for them, how partnering with local farmers is changing the landscape of the foodservice industry, and how their clientele is not exactly who you think they might be. And then - after discussing their mouth-watering menu offerings - we did some tumeric shots together! Yum is right! Bottoms up! Marla I would like to extend a special THANK YOU to those of you that have taken the time to leave a comment here or reach out to me about what you thought of these episodes.

The Role Crying Plays in Your Wellness

Do you know why you cry? What role it plays in your health? It is facinating that we are the only species that is capable of emotional tears, as opposed to the other two types of tears that we all have (hydration tears - just keeps our eyes moist, and protective tears - like what happens when you cut into an onion, or when people get pepper sprayed, or a big dust of wind blows in your eyes). In this epsiode we go into: *  why do you cry *  what role it plays in your health * what you can learn from your tears * the relationship between our stress hormones and tears * how to deal with children and their tears and what we can learn from them May you never look at crying quite the same!

What is Your Mind Type and How Does It Impact, Well, Everything!

Hi There. In today's episode, I tell you the other half of the story. In episode 8 we discussed your body type and what each type means to you. Today, we look at your mind type: is it the same as your body type, or is iot totally different. We discuss what most impacts your mind type, how to realize when you are starting to mentally unravel (we all do it, so it is totally cool), and how to bring yourself back to your center. We will also chat about how your mind and body type marry, how they work together and dance through life as one, while sometimes being at odds with each other.  Let's take a listen together. Oh, and if you ever have any comments about any of my episodes, do not hesitate to reach out to me on my website.  To join me for one of my upcoming monthly digestive detoxes or to sign up for our Bliss Body Tribe Update newsletters, you can go to www.thedetoxyogi.com or over at The Detox Yogi, on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter Love and light - Marla To join Marla's Wellness Insiders' email group, you can follow the link here.  See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Toss The Scale (or Keep it?)

Are there numbers that make you crumble? That make you want to run and hide? For a lot of us numbers like our age, our weight, even our income are important. We form emotional attachments to what those little digits mean. But should it? In today's episode, you and I look at the power some numbers have over us, why it happens, what those numbers really are trying to tell us, and then, we take the power back. You will never look at your scale the same again. And then at the end I have a special treat for you. I am not going to ruin the surprise, but you will be totally blissed out by the end of this 29 minutes episode. Promise!

Amelia Barnes on Breast Health and the #1 Breast Cancer Prevention You Don't Know About

Now that we are in October, we see signs of Breast Cancer Awareness everywhere: Race for the Cure runs taking place every weekend, pink ribbons at every turn, and friends asking friends for donations to support breast cancer research. But you never see or hear people talking about the #1 reason women get breast cancer, and I am guessing it is because most industries don't want you to know about this. In this week's episode, I sit down with the uber-talented, world-renowned Amelia Barnes, visionary and founder of PranaVida Style. We talk breasts, breast health and what the garment industry doesn't want you to know. Then, with you, we solve the biggest problem together. Listen in on our most important episode to date, and PLEASE, Amelia and I encourage you to share this with every bossom buddy you know. Knowledge is power! And we don't want one more woman diagnosed with breast cancer, not one! To learn more about Amelia and her amazingly inspirational work, visit her on Instagram at AmeliaKYoga or PranaVidaStyle, of you can visit her online at www.pranavidastyle.com.

BONUS Episode: The Fall Solstice

Hi Dear Friends. This has been a tough week. Everywhere I seem to turn, we all seem a bit off, a bit shook. There is a reason for it, and it is what is happening right now. I hope this bonus episode sheds light on this time of year when all of us in the northern hemisphere close our spring/summer chapter and start to open our fall/winter one. This can be a very taxing, emotional time of year for almost all of us regardless if we say something or not, regardless if we cry or not, regardless if we feel added anxiety, depression, hollowness or now. Let’s work through this together in this special bonus episode. Wishing all so much love and light right now - Marla --- Also, at the beginning of this episode, you heard a quick ad for the Sound Off Media Company who produce this podcast.

Your Lunar Connection

Do you feel like you are swimming upstream? Do you feel like the world or the cosmos is against you sometimes. No matter how hard you try, what you eat, how often you go to the gym, things still are not quite working. But is there something that you are missing, something right underneath your nose. Cycles. If we don't fully understand how the cycles of the season, of the sun and moon impact our day-today wellbeing, it can feel like you are swimming upstream. Today we sit down with Chiara Stella, one of the more profound authorities on our wellness cycles, as we discuss the natural cycles around us and how these impact you today.
