Podcast interview on becoming one with ourselves with yoga teacher and therapist, Alina Calinescu.

Becoming One With Ourselves - Alina Calinescu | Journeys with the No Schedule Man, Ep. 80Many of us are on the journey of becoming one with ourselves. Along that path, we must often check in to example how in touch we feel with who we really are and what we really want to be doing?

Are we going through life doing all the things we feel we should be doing? Or are we absolutely certain we’re the path for which we are uniquely suited, in touch with the kind of life and work that will continue to light up our soul for as long as we’re alive?

There are so many different aspects to becoming one with ourselves, and in this episode, we’re joined by Alina Calinescu to help us explore them. Alina is a kind and gentle soul who asked herself the very questions mentioned above not all that long ago. As has been the case with so many others who have shared their stories on this podcast, Alina found that her true path was divergent from where she started out.

Originally from Romania, Alina followed in her father’s footsteps and became an engineer. But some time after moving to Canada and being introduced to fitness, something new clicked in her spirit. A little over a decade ago, she listened to what she calls a “gut feel” and changed her career path to one of fitness, yoga and meditation.

Now a yoga teacher, therapist, educator, what she loves most is to share iRest (Integrative Restoration) Yoga Nidra. iRest is known to help alleviate stress, help us sleep better and heal unresolved issues. It can also allow us recognize an underlying peace of mind that is always present within us – no matter what circumstances we are facing in life.

As a quick aside, Alina invited me to one of her iRest Yoga Nidra meditation sessions a short time after we had the conversation for this podcast. I jumped at the opportunity and can only say that I found it to be a profoundly positive experience which I highly recommend. I’m already looking forward to Alina’s next session.

In sharing so much about her personal and professional journey, Alina said several things that truly resonated with me. Some examples include:

  • The challenge of pacing herself.
  • What she calls “indigestion of thought.”
  • Touching base with what is all right within you.
  • Developing and nurturing patience and trust.
  • She talked about how she to the point where she would remind herself to “stop apologizing for her choices.” That really hit home for me.

I also love how she described what she does as “part science and part art.”
