Today, I’m excited to introduce you to the authors of one of my all-time favorite books, Mathew Micheletti and Ashley Cottrell. Known worldwide as “The Yoga Couple” to their 500,000+ followers, they’re also the authors of a book that I haven’t stopped recommending since I read it: The Inner Work: An Invitation to True Freedom and Lasting Happiness. 

Their book astounded me. It’s one of the best books I’ve ever read. They’re experts in consciousness, learning how to interact with your significant other in ways that stop us from getting triggered, and changing our approach to life so that we experience True Freedom and Lasting Happiness. 

In this conversation, we take the teachings of Mat and Ash’s book, The Inner Work, and go even deeper, discovering new insights as we discuss how to apply their teachings in a world that couldn’t possibly be crazier, chaotic, or more uncertain.


●      What exactly the Inner Work is, why we should all be doing it, and how we can use this framework in our everyday lives.

●      How we can transform our view of reality using themes of consciousness.

●      Why yoga is so much more than physical poses, and the deep connection between yoga and inner freedom.

●      How yoga can be used to process trauma, make sense of anger, and reconnect with higher consciousness.

●      What you can do when your partner doesn’t want to embark on the same journey of self-improvement that you’re taking.

●      The beauty of letting go of expectations and resentment.

●      And so much more!
