Intermittent fasting is becoming increasingly popular, but for all the yogis and yoginis out there intermittent fasting is not a new trend. In Ayurveda, we call it space eating and it is one of the pillars for a healthy life. Recently science caught up with the 4 millennia wisdom behind space-eating, and several studies have supported the health benefits of this practice. For the past month, Cate has been joined by several members on the Yogahealer Challenge, a fast track program, specially designed to help people overcome mediocrity to become an...

Transparency and Confessions. People always ask me how I ease into detox mode. I have gone into this in the past, but I haven’t always been ready to give you all the nitty-gritty details. Now I am. I’m ready to get real with you. Instead of just telling you what YOU should do, I’m going to tell you how things actually go down for me. After 15 years of leading this posse, I find my bio-rhythms shift into detox mode organically a week or two before the live detox begins. My kitchen starts...

A Sweet Sailing Life: My Cruise Ship Analogy For Understanding Your Nervous System Imagine a cruise ship sailing calm warm seas. You are on deck with the sun shining down on you. Attentive staff surround you, ensuring that you always have a cocktail in hand, preparing beautiful food, creating entertainment, or cleaning your room. Think about how you feel on this cruise ship.

Today Alex and Biondo and I rap about intermittent fasting, bi-annual detoxing, and why these methods are so important in keeping us healthy, clear, and vibrant.  Intermittent fasting, a tool historically rooted in ancient wisdom traditions, orients us towards biological efficiencies by taking the stress and overload of food off our metaphorical plate.  It allows us to have more time to process food, emotions, and experiences and gives our bodies a slower, cleaner burn. Learn to use your body as a science experiment. Play with intermittent fasting and detoxing to...

I’m here with Yogahealthcoach and Awake Living mentor Dana Skoglund and we are going to talk a little bit about what happens post-holiday and how people have the opportunity to feel amazing but it’s usually not how they think. What I want to talk about is a habit, The Earlier, Lighter Dinner Habit that we have. It’s the first and the number one habit in Yogahealthcoaching and Body Thrive. After the holiday's people have this desire to feel better! They want to lose weight, they want to get on track, they...

I’m all fired up for a shakti, agni, and Ayurveda question and answer session! For those of you who went to Podcast Q&A and recorded your questions on SpeakPipe, I get to a lot of those questions on today’s show. We really dive into the energies. What is shakti?

I have a pile of responses from the last time I wrote you: subject line: [Autumn=Rejuve] Why Fat Metabolism Matters. Most are provocative reflections and questions. But first I happen to open some fascinating criticism from Casey.(For positive feedback, scroll to the end.) Casey writes: "Oh my gosh! What is your issue or shadow with using the word pie hole! That sounds so derogatory. Why can't you just say "your mouth" or actual term of the body or part. You repeatedly used the word too on your webinar when I listened to it on...

It's been a while since I've done a live webinar, but they're so much fun! To me, they're a casual way for us to connect around things that I've been thinking about and practicing.
