Greetings Rainbow Warriors,

I’m coming to you from magical Bali today. I’ve been here about 3 weeks now and I’ve got to say I’m really enjoying the island life. The warm humid air is so pacifying for my vata which feels really balancing for me, you can listen to my Ayurveda episodes if you don’t know what I’m talking about. Bali is known for being a concentrated place of healing on the planet, and I’m witnessing it myself and hearing amazing stories from people here about their healing too.

I’m looking into offering retreats here, to give you all a taste of the magic, so drop me an email through my website if that’s something that you’d like to participate in.

Our guest today is Ronnie Landis. Ronnie is an Author, Professional Speaker, Health & Life Transformation Coach, and a Nutrition & Human Potential Strategist.

He’s a leading expert in holistic health, natural nutrition, and human potential. He helps people ,from driven entrepreneurs, athletes, visionary artists, actors/actresses, and intuitive healers, all the way to stay at home moms and dads to perform at their best mentally, emotionally, and physically. Ronnie’s work ranges from exploring the fringes of cutting edge health sciences, food based nutrition, innovative supplementation strategies, and a deep passion for helping people overcome long held mental and emotional roadblocks so they can experience every area of their life at their full potential. Ronnie is a public speaker and teacher, a published author of multiple books, hosts of two popular podcasts, a transformation and peak performance coach, and above all else a man who deeply values life and has devoted his life to uplifting and inspiring the lives of as many people as he can reach through his mission, his work, and his message.

I’ve known Ronnie for years through the healthy lifestyle scene in Los Angeles. I’ve always regarded him as someone who carries a lot of wisdom and passion for holistic health. I’m grateful we got to share this conversation when I was last in California, almost a year ago now. Ronnie drops a lot of specific wisdom in this show, everything from nuggets about Taoist herbs and plant medicine in general, to conscious eating, to the importance of acid/alkaline balance and lots more, so it’s a good idea to be ready to take some notes if you can.

Morwenna is a passionate and inspired Channeler, Healer and Yogi, who loves to dance between realms. Working internationally she offers Energy Healing sessions and runs Trainings & Workshops in Reiki, Crystal Healing, Channeling & Angelic Communication. Morwenna is a channel for Source Consciousness and the Angelic realm. She re-awakens these energy channels within her clients, gently activating them into their path of truth, lovingly releasing the stories & moving into pure potential.

I met Morwenna last year at The Sanctuary Thailand on the island of Ko Phangan, and was instantly struck by her high vibes and graceful nature. We got a chance to sit down together for her to explain about the different types of energy healing she knows and offers to her clients .

It’s interesting for me to listen to this interview again now, after I became certified in Reiki during my last trip to India. I really resonate with her explanation of Reiki and am grateful to now be certified in this healing modality.

If energy healing is somewhat of a mystery to you, this episode should shine some light on it.

Make sure you listen until the end where Morwenna shares tips for self healing and to help get your own energy flowing.

Check out the show notes at, to learn more about Morwenna’s work and connect with her.

Namaste Rainbow Warriors! I’m coming to you today from Bali, Indonesia. I’ve discovered that landing in Bali direct from india is a great traveling strategy.

Everything feels more clean and comfy here. In India I was kind of roughing it. Of course I’m madly in love with India, and I believe it’s an important journey for everyone to spend time there, it certainly is for me, and I haven’t even scratched the surface there, but Bali is an entirely different vibe. And there’s better wifi haha. The culture here is still hindu, but a different kind than you see in India.

This culture is steeped in ceremony for everything in the world. They literally have a ceremony for everything, and it’s amazing to be in a place that holds so much reverence for everything under the sun. Yesterday was a ceremony for all things metal, like cars and machines, and I hear there’s one for trees coming up soon. How cool is that?!

I love the high energy of sacred community here. In the couple days ‘ve been here I’ve been running into old and dear friends that I didn’t expect to see, and that always feels magical.

The air is hot and moist, everything is bright green, the prana is just palpable here. SO much life force energy! Tomorrow the Bali Spirit Festival will begin and I’ll be on a week long love fest yoga train. I’m looking forward to recording a new season of interviews for you here with the international speakers and teachers from the festival, and keep this podcast rolling as a source of inspiration and empowerment for you!


So now let’s get to today’s episode.


Our guest today is Jonny Rose. Jonny is a 700 hour yoga alliance certified teacher, that’s a lot of training folks! He is part of the core teaching team at The Sanctuary Thailand where he’s been teaching since 2014. After discovering yoga in Byron Bay in 2002 it has been happily taking over Jonny's life. He tries to do justice to all his amazing teachers in every class he leads,  for the amazing effects they had on his life.

He believes that dancing is a basic human need, and  has a light hearted approach and a wicked sense of humor.


I met Jonny in Ko Phangan ,Thailand, on the advise of a common friend who said he’d ”make a great” interview, and that he did. Jonny lives most of his life in an absolute paradise on a small bay of turquiose water on this island in southern Thailand, surrounded by jungle and yoga.

I enjoyed a couple of his classes there, and love his “don’t take yourself too seriously”approach.


In this interview we took a deep dive into the 8 limbs of yoga, and especially the yamas and the niyamas. Jonny’s explanation of these foundational yogic principles was straight to the point and enlightening. Jonny really breaks down the 8 limbs of yoga in a way you may not have heard before.

I hope you learn  something here and get inspired to deepen your practice of true yoga .


As usual check out the show notes for links to Jonny and things we talked about in the show, on my website at you’ll find my special media links there too so you can keep in touch and follow my behind the scenes stories that lead to these shows….


See you next week.

Enjoy and namaste
