Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Amy Weintraub discuss the following:

  1. How can a regular yoga practice inspire creativity in your work and life?
  2. I know you are a proponent of evidence-based yoga protocols - what does that mean?
  3. How can some of these evidence-based yoga protocols help manage mood?
  4. You've published about yoga before, but your next book is fiction, why did you make the switch?
  5. How did a deeper relationship with the Indian history you researched for Temple Dancer enrich your yoga practice?
