Just What I Need!

I absolutely love listening to this podcast. I only go to yoga once or twice a week, so I was a little intimidated going into this podcast, but I immediately found it to be just what I needed! Liz and Aaron do such a great job of breaking down and exploring topics -- opening my mind up to new concepts, new ideas, and deeper levels of thinking -- and doing so on a level that is inviting for yogis of all levels. The guest speakers are so engaging, too! I laugh, I learn, I cry, and I grow with each episode. It's worth the listen!

A little peace place 💕

So I have this saying… everyone needs a peace place. Then they need to spend some time actually being there. It doesn’t have to be a specific location, it could just be a place in your mind, that you go to for peace...this podcast allows people to do just that- find some peace! It’s not only about yoga teachings and how it is good for the body, mind and spirit - it’s a fun, interactive and a bit quirky little show...with some really GREAT life learning skills! Take it in- I think you’ll enjoy it as much as I do!

Authentic Representation

Liz & Aaron chose to interview Rachel & Alex in episode 2. They reference on the podcast the importance of listening to their guests and yogis-knowing how a daughter's soccer game went or what's going on in someone's life being the priority of their business. This mentality is so evident in their leadership and I'm go glad you've helped capture that and share it out with the world. As an educator and counselor, where relationships matter, I saw this in them when I volunteered at Rachel & Alex’s yoga studios and your podcast helps this side of them shine!! Way to go. Keep up the awesome work interviewing some amazing people. It’s helpful to be reminded of the real nature and lifestyle of those in our yoga communities. There doesn’t have to be a standard or expectation to live up to. I appreciate the authenticity of Luz & Aaron’s interviewing!

A little slice of shavasana

This podcast just makes my day! I listen to it in the car and find myself laughing, crying, feeling hopeful, inspired, and that everything will be okay. Listening to Beyond Asana takes me out of the stress of my every day life and lets me experience a little peace through the joy and laughter of Liz and Aaron, Produce Steve, and their weekly guest. Definitely in my top five favorite podcasts list!

Interesting Perspective

Aaron and Liz are amazing people in person, hearing this podcast as they interview others in their work is enlightening and refreshing. I love that Liz is creating a space to share these inspiring stories on a wider level. Great to listen to on a commute to work b/c it's uplifting and has your brain thinking in a different way/more creatively.

Lovely podcast

I was instantly drawn in by Episode 1. I have been a faithful listener since it first aired. It is poignant , heartfelt , honest, informative , and wonderfully funny! The dynamics between Liz, Aaron , and producer Steve are terrific. As a yogi with a “non yogi” husband, I find myself chuckling a lot while listening and appreciate Aaron’s input and perspective. Such a lovely way to begin my day on Tuesdays! Keep up the amazing work. I can’t wait for the next episode to air 💜

Episode 2 Off-putting

Episode 1 gave me life. It was the most perfect thing I’ve ever listened to. Like another reviewer said, Episode 2 took a sharp turn away from body positivity and social justice to diet culture. As someone who has struggled with an eating disorder, this was incredibly disappointing and honestly a bit triggering. I decided to keep listening anyway and the episodes since then have been redeeming.

Love, love, love!

Beyond Asana has quickly become one of my favorite podcasts. Liz and Aaron are fabulous hosts. They instantly make their listeners feel at home and allow us to take part in the meaningful conversations they have with their guests, conversations that are not to be missed by anyone. They not only have mastered the art of engaging their guests with thoughtful and intelligent questions, but have also mastered the ability to listen. Listening is just as, if not more important than asking questions in this space and I encourage other hosts to follow suit. Listening shows respect, and it is not lost on the listener that Liz and Aaron not only respect each other, but their guests as well. While the yogic influence is apparent, this is by no means exclusive to yogis. This is a podcast for anyone who is interested in becoming a more informed, self aware citizen of this earth. It’s light and hilarious while still touching on important topics that are necessary to explore, especially today. In its infancy this podcast has already proven to make a positive impact on so many and I am eager to see where this goes and how many lives it will touch as its potential is unlimited. I can’t wait to hear more!!!!! (P.S. Please elaborate on the “Snapple” refrende in Ep. 2!!! I’m dying!!)

I highly recommend this podcast for yogis and non-yogis alike, and I can’t wait for the next episode!

Beautiful and thoughtful

Beyond Asana is a beautiful and thought-provoking podcast hosted by two wonderful and inspiring people. As an obsessive runner and swimmer, I always claimed I didn’t have time for or any interest in yoga. But the stress of grad school brought me to the mat and finally Liz. She is a kind, selfless, and sweet human who has helped me become a better person on and off the mat. I am thrilled she and Aaron are sharing their light with an even wider audience. Highly recommend for yogis and non-yogis alike—looking forward to what this podcast has in store ❤️
