Beyond Asana is a podcast for yogis and non-yogis looking to live a happier, more fulfilling life. At once funny and serious, the show invites yoga teachers and spiritual leaders from around the world to consider how we, as a global society, can use yoga as a tool for transformative change. Perhaps more importantly, it is also an elaborate ploy to convince Aaron to practice yoga alongside his wife Liz, who has been a practitioner since the couple met more than a decade ago.

||CleanEp. 4: Yoga as a Universal Language, with Robert Sturman||Aaron fangirled a bit during Episode 4. Robert Sturman is more than a photographer.

A little slice of shavasana
This podcast just makes my day! I listen to it in the car and find myself laughing, crying, feeling hopeful, inspired, and that everything will be okay. Listening to Beyond Asana takes me out of the stress of my every day life and lets me experience a little peace through the joy and laughter of Liz and Aaron, Produce Steve, and their weekly guest. Definitely in my top five favorite podcasts list!
Aaron and Liz are amazing people in person, hearing this podcast as they interview others in their work is enlightening and refreshing. I love that Liz is creating a space to share these inspiring stories on a wider level. Great to listen to on a commute to work b/c it's uplifting and has your brain thinking in a different way/more creatively.
I was instantly drawn in by Episode 1. I have been a faithful listener since it first aired. It is poignant , heartfelt , honest, informative , and wonderfully funny! The dynamics between Liz, Aaron , and producer Steve are terrific. As a yogi with a “non yogi” husband, I find myself chuckling a lot while listening and appreciate Aaron’s input and perspective. Such a lovely way to begin my day on Tuesdays! Keep up the amazing work. I can’t wait for the next episode to air 💜
