Marsha Banks-Harold is an Electrical Engineer, a trauma-informed yoga therapist and yoga teacher, and the owner of PIES Fitness Yoga Studio, based in Alexandria Virginia, USA. We were introduced to Marsha through the Global Yoga Therapy Day conference, where she was on a panel alongside Rane in a discussion of diversity in yoga therapy. Marsha sees herself as an intuitive healer called to empower clients to fortify one’s strength of awesomeness; to learn to rely on one’s authentic self; and to cultivate everlasting physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual (PIES) peace. She is the creator of the flagship yoga class My Body Don’t Bend That Way designed for clients who don’t believe they are flexible enough for yoga, who are afraid to get onto the floor, who are living with physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual pains or those who have restricted range of motion. She thrives in creating a supportive, inclusive, diverse, adaptive and accessible yoga and yoga therapy experience for all. In this conversation, we learn about her background growing up in Alexandria VA, how she was introduced to yoga, and how it helped her cope with her high pressure job in Electrical Engineering. We learn about how her community was affected by the George Floyd murder, and her thoughts on the (then) upcoming US presidential election.

Mark Workman has lived as a solitary Daoist monk for 16 years in Outback Australia and has followed a traditional Daoist path as well as living a Yogic lifestyle. In that time he practised yoga therapy, taught Yoga and Qi Gong and also taught various forms of meditation. Mark’s approach to Yoga is intensely practical. He has used Yoga to deal with major physical and psychological issues in his own life and is passionate about passing on what he has learnt to others. Mark had his leg amputated in 2017 and during a long stay in the hospital, he adapted yoga to the physical and psychological needs of amputees and people suffering mobility problems. In this episode, we learn about Mark's background growing up in Sydney, before he left for the outback at the age of 16. We hear how he cultivated an early interest in Zen Buddhism, Christian Theology and Daoism. We learn about the circumstances leading to his leg being amputated, and how he found he could use his knowledge to help other amputees.
