EPISODE 94: Making Work Suck Less with Yoga Principles

As you might know by now, Jon and I like to focus on how terrible work is – perhaps it’s because misery likes company. We get emails from many of you out in the rat race just like us, who are fed up and stressed out – but such is life.  That’s why work is a four letter word.  It is for this reason that we could all use a quick lesson on how to incorporate one of the world’s oldest practices, yoga, to find SANITY in an insane world of work.  You may be surprised to learn that yoga can teach you a whole lot more than just some funny stretches.
