Being Yoga Podcast
Episode 8 - Davina Donovan
Mindfulness, Anxiety and Managing Emotional Discomfort
Find out how to use mindfulness, psychology and yoga to re-train your mind and body to be okay with emotional discomfort, free yourself from anxiety and live a happy, fulfilled life.
In this episode of the Being Yoga Podcast, I chat with Davina Donovan about her work as a clinical psychologist, yoga and meditation teacher and how all these worlds come together.
We discuss the modern practices of yoga and how this has deviated from traditional paths in India. We also discuss the cross over between mindfulness meditation and therapy and why both are incredible tools for living a full life.
Something we discuss at length is the idea of being okay with discomfort and how modern people have become a little resistant to this idea.
Davina has spent 17 years working with suicide prevention and postvention and we discuss this almost epidemic problem in modern life especially as it relates to men.
Davina is the published author of the book, 'What your Teen is Telling Me and Why they're not Telling You" Available on Amazon here:
