All Things Yoga with Demetra Ford

All Things Yoga with Demetra Ford

EPISODE 3 In this episode, I discuss All Things Yoga with guest Demetra Ford. Go Hard Chicks, I love to learn the stories of people who may have started in traditional careers, but somehow found their way to health and fitness.  Demetra is one of those individuals. Demetra is a licensed attorney, who recently retired from the practice of law, and currently divides her time between her real estate projects and her yoga practice. Demetra practices and teaches Vinyasa yoga.  Her class is generally a vigorous flow in which she utilizes music and encourages her students to vibe and flow through each pose with grace. Demetra’s goal is to share yoga with those people who have never had exposure to the practice.  Realizing that some people have the misconception that yoga is only for certain people, certain body types, certain ages, etc., Demetra likes to remind people that “yoga is for everyone, even those (like her) with a lil extra “junk in the trunk.” In this episode Demetra answers the following questions: What exactly is yoga? Is yoga spiritual or religious? What are the common misconceptions about yoga? How did Demetra decide to get involved with yoga? Are there any previous fitness involvements or requirements to practice yoga? Is it necessary to go to a studio or is it ok to have a home-based practice? What are the various styles of yoga? How to decide on a particular style of yoga? What are some of the benefits of yoga for women? Are yoga and meditation the same thing? What are some of the general benefits of meditation? How do you get started with yoga? If you enjoyed the podcast, would you mind leaving a review in iTunes?  This helps introduce our work to a new audience as we climb the ranks.
