Yoga: Going Beyond the Body

Health Coach Academy, Kim Tang, podcast

Who We Are is How We Serve

Cultivate Your Own Consciousness


Notable Quotes

“Who you are, in its highest form, fully expressed in its most authentic truth, is how you serve.
Kim Tang

“Self-cultivation is not selfish. Self-cultivation leads to service, and you can only give what you have. And so, if you want to give more, you need to allow more for yourself and your life.  ”
Kim Tang

“The consciousness with which you conduct your practice is the consciousness with which you conduct your life…so you learn it on the mat to use it in your life.”
Kim Tang

“So what I believe is that when desire and belief are a match, the universe grants all requests. And when desire, belief, and action are a match, I am undeniable.”
– Kim Tang


Episode Summary

When most people hear yoga, they think about stretching, holding positions, maybe even breathing. But in truth, yoga actually goes beyond the positions and deep into the mind and spirit—a modality in which the body is a learning device for the mind.

In this episode of Health Coach Academy, we’re talking to internationally recognized Yoga Master and Head Coach of the International Yoga Sports Federation Kim Tang to break down what yoga is, what it does, and how we can leverage it to better understand ourselves so that we may better serve our clients.
