Flexibility in relationships with Talia Sutra
In this episode, we focus on flexibility. As important as flexibility is in working out — it’s just as important in relationships. There’s really no ‘right way’ to do things; You need to be flexible to changes and possibilities in order to be able to be successful in your life and relationships.
Sophie and I have been learning, and practicing this, for nearly a decade. For our relationship to improve, we both had to become WAY more flexible in our approach to one another. The rigidity we both started with was one of the primary barriers to our continued growth. This all comes full circle with our guest today, Talia Sutra — a professional yoga instructor, Instagram sensation, vegan, and new mom. Talia was born in Israel but has lived in New York with her family for most of her younger years. Recently, she has moved back to Israel with her husband Ezra and her newborn son, Akiva. Talia has a passion for ballet, yoga, and art and feels deeply connected to nature and animals. In this enlightening episode, Talia speaks about her early life and disciplines, her struggle with mental health, her journey into yoga and veganism — and of course — the importance of flexibility and how it has affected her life.
