164. Pamela Seelig – Threads of Yoga: Themes, Reflections, and Meditations to Weave Into Your Practice

Pamela Seelig is the author of “Threads of Yoga: Themes, Reflections, and Meditations to Weave into Your Practice.” It’s a guide for students and teachers inspired by the yoga sutras. Pam is someone who began her yoga journey more than twenty-five years ago when an illness interrupted her Wall Street career. She began meditating as a complementary therapy with startling results. Along with speeding up her recovery, the impact of her meditation led to a lifelong pursuit of perceiving and sharing yoga wisdom. Pam eventually trained at Integral Yoga Institute in New York and began teaching to friends at a local convent in New Jersey until 2009 when she opened her own studio called Lotus Mind and Body. After a rewarding nine years, she sold the studio to focus on writing this book.

In this interview for the School for Good Living Podcast, Pam joins Brilliant Miller to talk about a lot of things related to living well, yogic philosophy, and energy. We talk about the witness, cultivating a deeper relationship with the observer, quieting the mind, meditation, prana, kundalini, and the chakras. Pam also explains a bit about her writing, creative process, and how she got the book written and published. Pam explains how she has lived a better life by incorporating things both in her book and in this interview and how they can be keys to our own good living.

“That’s what yoga is really about… living a more full life.”
