Bump In The Road:

Yogi Aaron On Being Mindful

Yogi Aaron on The Life Changing Power of Mindfulness



Life often presents us with unexpected challenges, and how we respond to these “bumps in the road” can define our path forward. In this compelling podcast episode, we meet a yogi whose tale is not just about yoga—it’s a profound narrative of facing chronic pain, confronting one’s identity, and ultimately finding empowerment through adversity.

Yogi Aaron’s story begins with yoga, a practice he adopted at 18 to combat tightness in his body. What started as a search for physical flexibility turned into a 25-year saga of chronic pain, culminating in a dire emergency room visit and a surgeon’s recommendation for spinal fusion. This moment of crisis forced Aaron to question everything he knew about his body and his identity.

But Aaron’s tale is not one of defeat. It’s a story of transformation and light-bulb moments. It’s about flipping the script on victimhood and learning to ask, “What don’t I know?” This pivotal question led Aaron to explore muscle activation techniques, radically changing his understanding of the body and biomechanics. He discovered that many of us walk around with major muscles simply not working, leading to a cascade of stress and inflammation.

Through his journey, Aaron not only healed himself but also began to help others. He delves into the less-is-more philosophy, the power of isometric holds, and the spiritual and psychological aspects of yoga. He emphasizes the importance of relaxation and introduces us to practices like yoga nidra, which can be more restorative than sleep.

This episode isn’t just about yoga; it’s about life, resilience, and the profound impact of mindset on our health and well-being. Aaron’s reflections on mental health, the importance of disconnecting from electronics, and maintaining presence are lessons for us all. He reminds us of the beauty of life and the importance of living with purpose, regardless of the challenges we face.

So, if you’ve ever felt overwhelmed by life’s hurdles or struggled with chronic pain, tune in to this episode. Let Aaron inspire you to embrace your inner strength, reevaluate your understanding of your body, and approach life’s bumps with a sense of empowerment. Listen now and start living your best life today.

Yogi Aaron on Mindfulness




“It was a moment of complete humility, and it challenged and invited me to kind of like, step up and ask the question, okay, what don’t I know?”

“If you’re going to be a mess, be a happy mess.”

“We’re on this spaceship traveling thousands of miles every year, hundreds of thousands of miles every year.”

“Remember that life is a gift. Remember that there’s beauty around us and let’s be saturated in that knowledge.”

“Wake up every morning and ask those questions, how can I live my best life today? How can I live more fully?”

Everyone hits a bump in the road. The question becomes: What do you do with it?

I share stories about how people experience, manage and navigate life's bumps, hopefully using them as a pivot into a more conscious and meaningful life.
