703. Personalizing Yoga for Your Busy Schedule with Brett Larkin of Uplifted Yoga

Dec 22, 2023



Brett Larkin, Founder and CEO of Uplifted Yoga, discovered gaps in how modern yoga practices are taught today. It often doesn’t take into account our busy lives or even our unique anatomies. 

In her effort to help people who don’t believe that a yoga practice is for them for one reason or another, she’s ready to share what she’s learned about yoga history in her latest book, Yoga Life: Habits, Poses, and Breathwork to Channel Joy Amidst the Chaos.

In this episode of Redefining Movement, Brett takes us on a quick tour of how modern yoga practices came to be and why it isn’t always about following poses strictly. In fact, she encourages you to explore and find what truly works for you and your body. 


In this episode, you’ll learn the following:

  • There’s no right or wrong way to practice yoga. It’s rooted in personalizing the practice for your specific needs and body.
  • Yoga is a physical practice and also a mindset you inhabit.
  • You don’t need a long yoga session to experience its benefits if you understand what your body needs at the moment.
