Podcast Episode 25: Tim Feldmann Returns!

As much as I hate to admit it, pain has a lot to teach us. Maybe that’s why my next guest, Tim Feldmann, is such a great teacher – because he’s certainly had his fair share to deal with.

You see, Tim began practicing yoga after a terrible accident many years ago, left him nearly unable to walk again. Injuries sustained such as those may heal, but they don’t always go away and instead, tend to reappear in various forms and struggles. These days, Tim is dealing with his wrist and at the time we talked, was still forced to wear the soft cast he’d been wearing even since the last time I’d seen him, many months before.

In any case, Tim will tell you, pain is inevitable. For all of us.

  1. Thank you so much for the perfect timing of this article.
    I really was starting to get lost in this practice. Lacking in confidence and asking all those relative questions.
    My practice has now changed as I work more with a connected approach and block out the old belief of always trying to get from a-z
    Surrendering deeply to the teacher within, now an opportunity to listen, observe, breathe and let go.
    Thank you for clarifying and supporting the aspect of practice with purpose. For me at this time.
    Namaste. X

  2. Thank you for your podcast and for Tim Feldmans wisdom. I have been maintaining a very modified 1/2 primary since my diagnosis of and treatment for breast cancer last summer. The practice has sustained me and all the lessons I have learnt throughout the years in acquiring new asanas, techniques and progress have supported me. I accept that I will now probably never getting beyond a certain point, but I am alive, breathing and moving with the spirit. What more is there? Namaste
