Tashi Dawa on Beauty Full Lives

Click here to listen to the Tashi Dawa episode of Beauty Full Lives.

Yoga teacher Tashi Dawa (@tashi_dawa_yoga) believes that beauty has nothing to do with exterior but rather is about one’s experience of life: ‘This is the oldest we’ve ever been and the youngest we’ll ever be again so this moment is passing. Feel your feelings, explore the adventures; life’s short and it would be terrible to live your last couple of breaths going “I was really scared of being judged.” That deep respect for the miracle that we are – not so concerned with what it looks like as a miracle, but what it feels like – that is beauty, I think.’

This theme carries through her entire life: all Tashi’s possessions fit in a single rucksack, she spends her money on travel and training, eschewing treatments and products in favour of time spent pursuing her goals.

In this episode, Tashi explains how she came to work as a yoga teacher, details some of her views on what can be done to combat stress diseases and which philosophies might engender a fresh perspective. She also chants, something I’ll never fail to find relaxing after having heard her do it daily at Vale de Moses (the yoga retreat on which we met), so I’d encourage you to bookmark the episode and return to that chanting if you want something soothing to listen to at the end of the day…

Beauty Full Lives is hosted by Madeleine Spencer, produced by Charlie Jones, and with artwork by Sung Lee.
