Jovinna Chan: Being Fully Alive
also available on
When I met Jovinna just over 5 years ago, I was struck by her strength, her presence, and her aliveness. She was the facilitator of my Yoga teacher training at Esalen Institute, a powerful month-long immersion that was a integral component to my own wellness journey.
In this conversation Jovinna and I didn't talk much about yoga, but we explored the broader question of what it means to "Be Fully Alive." Having just led a workshop on this topic, we discussed some of the practices that Jovinna weaves through her own life.
We talked about the year that time that Jovinna has been spent nurturing her own health and wellbeing, and how she has been relating to that process.
It was wonderful to reconnect with such a beautiful and vital force in this world - I hope you all enjoy this conversation as much as I did!
