Season 1 Episode 13 – Yoga and Faith with Elizabeth Sitzler

Join Hillary and Elizabeth as they discuss the joy of faith and yoga. Elizabeth is the Mysore Director at Prana Das Yoga Therapy & Healing Arts Center in Haverford, PA.
While she was studying history and political science, applying to law school, and competing as a Division 1 tennis player, her father persuaded her to try yoga for the first time, thinking it might help her manage stress. The dynamism of the practice instantly drew her in and she quickly fell in love with the beauty of linking movement, breath, and mindfulness. Soon enough, she was practicing yoga every day; experiencing positive transformations in mind, body, and spirit. As she delved deeper in the practice she discovered Sri K Pattabhi Jois’ Ashtanga Yoga, the Ashtanga Yoga School of Philadelphia, and her first teacher: David Garrigues. The integrity and structure of the Ashtanga Yoga system was a perfect and natural fit for her. Elizabeth taught at and helped run David’s School, AYS Philadelphia, from 2013-2017 before opening her own program at Prana Das.

Season 1 Episode 12 – Food and Faith

From the Last Supper to coffee hour, food is an undeniably important part of the Christian experience. Kendall Vanderslice is a chef and theologian who explores, as she puts it, “the intersection between food and faith”. In this conversation we discuss Kendall’s experiences with food, in particular her time touring the country to experience different food-centric church services for her upcoming (and as yet untitled) book. We also talk extensively about that most central of church feasts, Communion, and how to bring food into your personal practices. A show best enjoyed over a good meal!
