With so many different types of yoga, you might not know where to start. The same goes for fitness. Do you go hard and fast, or slow and gentle? Thai kick-boxing or asana flow? Or maybe it doesn’t matter what you do, as long as you’re moving and appreciating your body.
Koya Webb is a yoga superstar and celebrity holistic health coach, has appeared on NBC and was the main character on the reality show Yoga Girls. If you want to feel inspired, her Instagram is the most beautiful feed, full of motivational posts. But it wasn’t always this way.
As a teen, Koya was insecure, had no self-worth or self-love. She had to learn to build that over time. What set her on that journey was track athletics. But just before she was about to make it big, she got a stress fracture. That was the end of the dream. She sank into a very dark place. And that’s when a school councilor suggested yoga.
From the first class, Koya felt connected to spirit in a way she’d never experienced before. Within a year, she’d healed her body through yoga and meditation. From there, she kept studying and decided to become a yoga teacher to inspire people into a healthier lifestyle. For Koya, the secret lies in balance.
You don’t have to be dogmatic about yoga, just like you don’t have to be dogmatic about your diet. When Alli went from non-vegan to super hardcore raw veganism, she got sick. She had to find her sweet spot. Everyone is different. Some people love to eat first thing in the morning. Other people enjoy intermittent fasting. And what you need may change depending on what’s happening in your life. You need to eat and fuel up based on your lifestyle. And the most important ingredient for total health? Self-love.
We need to get loved up. Most of us are givers and lovers and nurturers, but we also need to learn how to receive love. Otherwise our cup gets empty and we get exhausted. Koya created the Get Loved Up University, a yoga teacher training academy to give more women the tools to teach other women, and spread the beautiful message of love, unity, health and plant-based nutrition. If this sounds like what you need, join Koya on her yoga retreat in Thailand in December! Any shape, size, nationality, yoga ability, you are invited to come and get loved up!

What do relationships and business have in common? You can’t succeed in either without mindfulness.
Think about what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur. Drive, passion, organization, strength…. But also, belief in yourself, trust in your abilities, confidence in your knowledge. Without that, you just stand in your own way. So how can we stop blocking ourselves from following our dreams and setting up our businesses? It all starts with mindfulness.
The same goes for our relationships. Our vibration, which is made up of all our habitual thoughts and our core beliefs about ourselves and the world, is what attracts people into our lives. In the same way, if we have unresolved issues, we will keep attracting people who exacerbate them. Unless we love ourselves, we cannot expect another person to truly love us. We need to empower ourselves and take responsibility for what we bring into our relationships - we create our reality, so if our reality doesn’t suit us, then we need to look at what we’re putting out there, what we’re believing, and how we’re creating this situation.
Mindfulness can be the difference between success and failure. Most of what holds us back is not being mindful or aware of the little things that stop us. Limiting believes create blocks, in our relationships, and our business. When we bring mindfulness to what we’re doing, it opens us up for success in all areas of our lives.
Step in today’s guest, Michael Neeley. Michael first discovered mindfulness during his acting career (he spent twelve years working as a medieval knight!). The more he studied Buddhism and got into the psychology of human beings, the more he felt driven to share this knowledge with the world. He got out of acting and into coaching, and now runs three podcasts and regular mindset mastery events. His mission: to bring new ways of thinking and being to wake up people and the world.
That’s why Michael launched Your Authority Blueprint Live, an event dedicated to helping visionary solo-preneurs connect with their inner expert and become successful. The Authority Blueprint is founded on four pillars which, when implemented, will catapult you into the scene in a big way. These four pillars are podcasting, virtual summits, speaking from stage and authoring your own book.
If you feel like you’ve got a book inside you, or the deep sense that you have something to share, but are not sure where to begin, this event is perfect for you.
Michael’s year-long program, the Authority Academy, goes through each one of those pillars one by one, and get them done, while helping you release the blocks that keep you from stepping up. So that at the end of the year your podcast is up and running, you’ve spoken at an online summit, are booking speaking gigs and have published your book. More details HERE.
If you’re ready to release what keeps you blocked, then don’t miss JJ’s Releasing What Weighs You Down event on January 10th to 13th in Los Angeles. Speakers will include JJ herself, Michael Neeley, Allison, energy practitioner Lisa Thomas and mind-body-spirit nutritionist Jeanne Peters.
Do you ever feel like none of your inner work is getting you anywhere? What if your fears, limiting beliefs and negative patterns were not your own, but actually inherited from your ancestors? Are you holding something in your body that isn’t even yours?
If your ancestors had any kind of emotional trauma, such as fear, phobias, depression, anxiety, abuse, the subconscious traps that energy in DNA. This gets passed down, generation to generation. So your phobia of spiders may be due to a great great aunt experiencing the trauma of getting bitten. For example, Whitney’s limiting beliefs around money come from her grandfather going through the Great Depression.
It can feel overwhelming to think that you’re also carrying other people’s trauma, but don’t worry! You can free yourself from these patterns and release the emotions that are not your own.
Lisa Thomas is a Transformational Energy Healer and uses a combination of kinesiology (a form of muscle testing) and clairvoyancy to connect with her clients’ subconscious and assess what is blocking them, what needs to be released, and where these limiting beliefs have come from.
Lisa was born with these gifts and initially felt this as a huge burden. Seeing dead people isn’t exactly fun when you don’t know what it all means and you can’t talk to anyone about it. She didn’t know what to do, and felt afraid and isolated. It wasn’t until years later that she realized that if she wasn’t using her gifts to empower people, she wasn’t fulfilling her purpose on earth.
Thanks to her help, her clients can align with their soul purpose, get their unique gifts into the world, and reach their fullest potential. By drawing on her access to Source Energy and knowledge of holistic healing methods, Lisa can break patterns of struggle and negative energy that hold you back, so you can achieve a life filled with love and prosperity. She offers consultations in person, by Skype or by phone, and she works with people from all over the world and of all ages, from newborns to 80-year-olds.
How can you manifest what you desire?
It’s not as hard as you might thing. It comes down to gratitude. Gratitude for what you have in your life but also what’s coming - your perfect clients, your soulmate, the growth of your business, vibrant health. It has to go further than simply thinking about it or writing it. You’ve got to speak your gratitude out loud. Because when you speak it, you send it out into the Universe, and that energy will come back to you.
Lisa’s Special Offer for Food Heals Nation:
We used to consider smoking healthy - everyone smoked, even doctors. It took over 20 years and 7000 studies before the first official report against smoking was published. How long will it take before the truth comes out about our diets?
Well, if Dr. Michael Greger has anything to do with it, not long at all!
Dr. Greger was inspired into the medical profession by his grandma’s healing story. She’d had so many bypass operations that doctors said there was nothing more to be done, and sent her home to die. She was only 65. But after working with of one of the original lifestyle medicine pioneers, Nathan Pritikin, she healed herself and went on to live another 31 healthy happy years.
Having witnessed firsthand the healing power of a plant-based diet, Dr. Greger is on a mission to bring the truth about nutrition to as many people as possible. He founded the free, non-profit, science-based website NutritionFacts.org, which provides the latest in evidence-based nutrition research.
We love his book How Not to Die, where he examines the top 15 causes of death in the US, and explains how nutrition works BETTER than prescription meds to prevent and reverse disease, heal your body and help you live longer. It’s a practical guide that will help you design a lifestyle that supports your complete wellbeing. You can download the free Daily Dozen app, which gives you simple daily strategies to fight disease and feel great, even on a budget. And the best thing? 100% of the proceeds of his books are donated to charity.
The message is loud and clear: we have the power to prevent and reverse chronic disease with a plant-based diet and healthy lifestyle.
Dr. Greger is also working on a new book, How Not To Diet, which will be out in December 2019. He’s discovered some unique metabolic quirks to accelerate weight loss. We can’t wait to read it!!
