Amy Weintraub is also the creator of Lifeforce yoga - accessible yoga for anxiety and depression, so we also explore mental health and how it informs her writing.

We begin by talking to Amy about her earlier life as an award-winning but depressed television producer, how she discovered yoga and how she is using these practices to help her navigate the challenges of 2020.

We also discuss the inspiration and research that went into creating Temple Dancer. We have an in depth discussion about the themes of Temple Dancer, Amy’s research and creative process, including thoughts around writing about another culture.
