In the Mix Monday: Ladies in the Know -- Tara Judelle


The Ladies in the Know series presents women who’ve probed their awareness, identified important aspects of their lives that demanded attention and took action to uplift themselves through connecting to their inner wisdom and following it.

They are writers, athletes, cooks, healers, mothers, musicians, designers and more. They’ve shared what they’ve learned thereby making an impact on the lives of many women the world over.

We admire their strength and courage, their intelligence and contribution to our lives. We seek to know how their vision came about and how they manifested their dreams. We wish to be closer to their nexus of empowerment.

At the end of the day when our heroes take off their capes, they are people just like us. And lest we forget that we too have the capacity to reach great heights, I’ve asked these Ladies in the Know to record their first thoughts, in brief, to ten questions, as a mini-interview of sorts, to for both insight and for fun.

One of my favorite things about yogi Tara Judelle is her blend of intelligence and wit. Her yoga instruction infuses her vast knowledge of human physiology with a gentle understanding of what it is to be in the human form, from feeling aches and pains to being energized with radiant light. One of my fantasies is to take an early morning class with her, outdoors, somewhere beautiful, but in the meantime I check out her classes on Yogaglo Read on to find out what she has to say...

What gets you out of bed in the morning?
The fact that every day is an adventure in consciousness. There is so much to do, and it is all such an amazing journey.

What is your daydream destination?
Bhutan

What would you tell your teenage/younger self if you could?
It’s all made up. There are no rules. Follow your inner impulses.

What would you remind your elderly/future self if you could?
It’s all made up. There are no rules. Follow your inner impulses.


What was your most embarrassing moment?
Ripping my pants in the a**, while making yoga poses in Angkor Wat Temple.

What is your proudest moment?
Finishing the feature film I wrote, directed and produced.

What is your favorite food?
Avocado. Add it to anything for a better meal.

What is your favorite word?
Awareness

What is your favorite hobby/activity?
Observing others


Please share one bit of inspiration, insight or wisdom with women…
The world needs female models of leadership. Not women imitating men, but authentic paradigms that come from the body/mind of women.

And BONUS Please share with us a Lady in the Know... Is there a woman who has had a particular positive influence on you, if so who and how?
Sally Kempton. My meditation and philosophy teacher, because she has lived, loved, learned and knows more than anyone I know. She has taught me to know the great Self, and how to live and teach from wisdom.

    1. She really is phenomenal! If you do yoga (live or in your living room) she teaches a very unique class that will at once call you to your very own present reality and connect with the larger one. But not at all in an airy-fairy kind of way (unless you like that kind of thing;)
