DT 063: Make Truth Trendy with Alena Wertalik

Alena Wertalik is the head of East Coast Operations for Yoga to the People, a unique yoga studio that aims to make yoga available to everyone. She also serves as Director of YttP Teacher Trainings and a Lead Instructor for Science of Self Teacher Trainings. Her yoga journey has been quite unexpected and at the same time it feels divinely planned.

In this episode, you’ll hear from Alena on:

  • Ever-changing convictions around what yoga is and isn’t, and celebrating yourself in your yoga practice
  • Connecting to others through serendipitous, shared experiences of profound suffering
  • Tantra Talks — taking risks and ‘making truth trendy’ through hosting open conversations about intimacy, sex, and death 
  • Testing the universality of the practices of yoga by bringing a system of teaching across international borders
