HTC: February 25, 2006 Shownotes

Welcome to the 21st edition of the Hip Tranquil Chick podcast: a girl’s guide for living a luxe lifestyle on and off the yoga mat. On location at Polo and Louis’ playground (Siobhan’s home).

Today’s podcast is on taking a leap, along with a pose of the podcast, book suggestions, hip tranquil chick chat, and more podsafe music! View our shownotes at hiptranquilchick.blogspot.com.

Interview with Siobhan Troy who first came to Tranquil Space in 2001 and has since been opened up to a whole new world. In 2004 she embarked with Kimberly Wilson on opening Tranquil Space Bethesda. Siobhan enjoys teaching since it allows her to nurture her students and in turn she has learned so much from them. Drawing on her experience not only from yoga but from running three marathons, swimming, coaching, protecting the environment, and helping to raise money for AIDS services enables Siobhan to relate to her students. All of us come onto to the mat with our own strengths and weaknesses, Siobhan strives to help her students embrace these and see themselves as the beautiful person they are meant to be.

Hip Tranquil Chick Chat:
By the way, you mentioned in a recent podcast that your were going to try to eat more salads and I thought I would give you a few of my salad tips. I love salads with a little crunch in them, but when I started eating them so much, I hated the idea of consuming so many croutons and that’s when I discovered soy nuts. I don’t know if you have ever tried them, but they are great on salads and they are a good source of protein to boot. You might also want to try adding raisins or dried cranberries to your salad every now and then just to change the taste a little and sneak a little more fruit in your diet.

I also really love hearing your thoughts and tips on being creative. I have always considered myself a creative person as I have always had an interest in the arts. My career in prepress requires me to do a lot of digital creativity on a daily basis, so I find it very enjoyable and challenging. As I have grown older though, I find that I don’t have as much time to draw and paint as I would like. For me, I have always viewed artists, actors, and writers as being creative people. Your podcasts though have opened up my mind to the definition of creative. I like the idea of being creative in how we live our lives on a day to day basis and I enjoy hearing about how you get inspired to live creatively and incorporate that into your life.
