Off the Mat Yoga Yoga is for Lovers

Relationship “Therapy” with Erin & Adrien: Bad Yogi Podcast Episode 6

I’ll just say right off the bat that we use the term “therapy” lightly here. We wanted to record a podcast together & do something for Valentine’s Day that wasn’t overly corny. I put the question out to social media asking what you’d like to hear us chat about when it comes to relationships. I was blown away by your vulnerability & openness, so I knew I had to make this episode available outside of iTunes, too 😉

This special episode is all about relationships, but mainly our own. We’ve been through a lot over the last (nearly) 11 years together and thought it could be helpful to share some of our experiences. It’s not that we think we’re experts by any means, but sometimes it’s nice to hear from people who are of a similar mindset & in your same age range about topics that matter to you, like relationships.

So that’s the inspiration behind this episode. We talk about OUR own experience and aren’t giving YOU specific advice at any point, but rather sharing what has worked well for us.

We’ll talk about…
– How we met
– How we can live AND work together peacefully (mostly, haha!)
– How we maintain passions/hobbies & not lose sight of “us”
– Soulmates & what we think of that term
– How finances work in our life
– How we lift each other up to stay motivated physical/mental goals
– How we give each other alone time & respect our personal space while still making sure the other feels appreciated
– Why we make time to miss each other
– How to encourage the other to try new things
– How we argue in a productive way

… and a few other topics, too.

Hopefully you enjoy this one!

Over to you! Gimme details! What did you think? Any similar struggles or funny overlaps between you and the two of us? Would you want a part II of this? We had so much to cover, there wasn’t enough time without this being a 3 part episode!

    I absolutely loved this. Ready for round 2! It’s a an opportunity to see how others make it work and self reflect on areas where it would be beneficial to put some extra attention in my own relationship !

    I’m actually much older than you two but loved this podcast. You both sound like you have your sh@t together!!! I’m taking a lot of what you said to heart and tweak a few of my own ways of working in/on a relationship. And thanks for the BadYogi concept. I absolutely love it!!!

    Loved the conversation about dealing with disagreements… Taking the time to process emotions and treating the small things like small things.

    Loved, loved this! You guys cracked me up! Adrien brought up a really good point about how different people communicate differently. Because my boyfriend communicates logically while I do emotionally and we passionately “debate” about everything, especially TV shows! Can’t wait for round 2!
