Episode #65: Deconstructing the Ego (Part 1)

This is the first of 3 episodes where we break down the tricky topic of the ego!

The ego is something that comes up in yoga teacher trainings and around the subject of yoga often. Because yoga is considered one of many paths to ego death.

In this episode we break down the origins of the word ego. Whether it really is a bad or good thing, and the yogic approach to the ego. We also share some pointers and tips on calling out and recognising your own ego. Plus a fun way to name your ego alter identity with the help of Lenny and Barabara!
