The Next Layer Podcast™: an interview with Hali Schwartz on remembering who we really are, trusting our true self + why understanding consciousness is so important right now

"...effort is not necessarily struggle; effort is the continuity of your endeavour, the continuity of your faith & the continuity of your acting based on that faith..."

Hali Schwartz is a yoga educator who teaches yoga philosophy, Sanskrit, yoga, chanting + meditation in various teacher training programs around Toronto. Hali has been immersed in the world of yoga for most of her life + has lead several pilgrimage voyages to the Himalayas, Goa, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Varanasi, Rajasthan, New Delhi + Mumbai. She is passionate about the subject of yoga and has truly found her calling in sharing this love {and her deep knowledge} with us.

The first time I met Hali Schwartz was during my yoga teacher training at Octopus Garden here in Toronto; she captured my attention {and my heart} from the moment she began teaching us how to speak Sanskrit + the true depth of yoga's history. I had never met someone who felt so undeniably perfect as a messenger for the knowledge they were sharing; if you listen to Hali closely + long enough, you feel as though you might learn the secrets to life itself or at least the secrets to your own life.

For real.

Our interview really touches on a way of being + a state of awareness that I believe is missing from conversations about power, peace + potential for women + for humanity... when Hali says "I think of all beings as me + me as all beings" I am reminded of our capacity to not only be more for one another, but to be so much more for ourselves.

Thank you for it all Hali.

love, alicia.
