Debbie Popiel - The Synchronicity Show Episode #12 - Overcoming Adversity and Shifting Your Mindset

#12 – Debbie Popiel on Overcoming Adversity and Shifting Your Mindset

"Comfortable is a relative term. We think comfort means that it feels good. Comfort doesn't always feel good, it's just familiar... Marianne Williamson said we're not afraid of our darkness, were afraid of the light, we' re afraid of our power, and it's like once you find the power... it's like once you know, you can't un-know."

- Debbie Popiel

In today’s episode, I sit down with the one and only Debbie Popiel (@DebbiePopielYoga) to discuss mindset and the role it’s played in her life, how she’s broken the cycle of doing what society said she ‘should’ do, and the power of positive thinking in overcoming adversity. 

Debbie is a living example of the life-changing impact of a regular yoga & meditation practice. A single mom trying to make ends meet, Debbie found yoga in 2001.

Yoga transformed her ability to handle the stresses of daily life and become more present with her family and friends. Her daily experience is now based in peace and mindfulness.

She has a keen awareness of how to hold the energy of a room and help students feel safe. Every student in her class feels as though they are the most important person in the room while remaining authentic to the practice.

Debbie is passionate about sharing the transformational gifts of yoga & meditation with her students.

Debbie is a dear friend of mine, an inspiration to many, and an absolutely amazing individual, so please enjoy this wide-ranging discussion about overcoming adversity and shifting your mindset with none other than Debbie Popiel!
