Kat’s Podcast – Episode no. 37



Today I’m chatting with Keli Dierings: She’s the first of 9 inspiring women I’m interviewing for a series on spiritual evolution and standing in one’s own authority – because I feel that being able to stand in our own power is needed more than ever today. Times are challenging and we need our own stable ground to stand on.

In this spirit, we are here to share personal experiences, spread faith and give insights into what has helped us to evolve and stand in our own authority.

Keli Dierings is a Traditional Tantric Hatha Yoga teacher and mentor. She’s lived in many places around the world and resides in the US at the moment. We met through The Practice, a Traditional Tantric Hatha Yoga school in Bali. I love her for her sweet wisdom and the warmth she radiates. Her mentorship program “Restore faith in your spiritual practice” was born out of a time where she herself questioned her own power, capacity and own trust in practicing & teaching – and now she helps others find back to that innate trust and inner guidance, that we all have inside of us. 

In this episode Keli’s sharing key insights in regards to self-empowerment, how she has restored faith in her spiritual practice, how we can lighten our healing journey and live with more ease, joy and beauty
