My guest today is Shira Turkl-Rubin. Shira started Soul Flyte, a boutique yoga and fitness studio in Nyack, NY, from scratch. Her knowledge of yoga, fitness, digestive health, body awareness, meditation and nutrition lead her here to this very moment when she decided to open her own studio in a bustling town filled with curious, open minded people. Shira is an E-RYT 200 and 500 hour certified yoga instructor with specialties in AntiGravity, restorative, kids, digestive yoga, vinyasa and hatha. Shira has used the AntiGravity technique to rehabilitate her neck as well as her belly. She has suffered from ulcerative colitis since 2007 and the act of tipping herself upside down daily – without the pressure on her neck of a headstand or regular handstand – has brought her major relief.
Shira studied at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, as well as different types of yoga, in order to improve her own health, and eventually began teaching others. While “mainstream medicine” has its place, and a very important one, it doesn't have all the answers, and Shira emphasizes the importance of what we put into our own bodies and how we treat our bodies. Through the use of yoga, nutrition counseling, and meditation, Shira is able to bring great relief to her clients with IBD.
Shira talks about her own entrepreneurial path to becoming a successful business owner and offers some helpful suggestions and inspiration for those interested in launching their own business.
Shira recommends the book, Body Belief, by Aimee Raupp, which you can get at Amazon [https://amzn.to/2rnR4bK], and you can get Shira’s ebook, The Fix Your Belly Blues Program, at her personal website [http://www.shiraturkl.com].
