#45 The Science of Yoga with Eddie Stern

On the podcast today I welcome Eddie Stern

Eddie is a yoga teacher, author, and lecturer from New York City. He is known for his multi-disciplinary approach to furthering education and access to yoga, as well as his teaching expertise in Ashtanga Yoga.

His bestselling first solo book, One Simple Thing: A New Look at the Science of Yoga, examines in clear and simple language the underlying neurophysiological mechanisms that make yoga an effective practice.

We had a really great conversation today and some of the topics that I discussed with Eddie were:

How a punk rocker in the 70s became a Yoga teacher to the celebrities in New YorkHis time spent travelling in India and learning from the great masters of Yoga while on his travelsWhy consciousness is an important concept to fathom and how the process of learning 'who we are' is important, rather the achievementThe studies that Eddie has been involved in, that demonstrate Yoga as an important tool for cardiovascular healthThe vagus nerve as a root to mindfulness and changing your autonomic nervous system function

Do have a look at at the Summary and Guest Info sections on The Doctor's Kitchen Website where I've added a ton of more information that Eddie has been involved in and also some really interesting articles on The Vagus Nerve which I know you will find super interesting!
