DENNIS ANYONE? with Dennis Hensley

Welcome to Dennis Anyone, a podcast about making things up and making things happen. I love to talk to creative types about what they do and how they do it. Hope you enjoy my conversations as much as I do. - Dennis H.

Dennis visits the West Hollywood apartment of his favorite yoga teacher Jame Ferree to talk about his recent travels (Miami, Cambodia, Thailand, Bali), how he got into yoga, why he loves it, how teaching it continues to move him and his new series of online classes Vinyasa Vault. Jake talks about being gang-rushed by kleptomaniac monkeys in Bali, not driving a car for seven months, how yoga brought up buried emotions that surprised him, taming the negative voices in his head through yoga, giving "pussy" a rest and what it's like to see his students go through big emotions in front of him. He talks about the cool yoga photos he takes in his travel and the one location where the idea of doing a handstand really freaked him out. He also shares the story of losing a close friend suddenly and how that loss has impacted his life and hie practice. He talks about studying Shamanism as part of a month-long retreat in Peru and his experiences with the plant medicine Ayahuasca. Other topics include: coming out, being born three months early, sandwich artistry, paper bag poetry, having a stutter as a kid, his jet-setting parents, the Diane Lane movie that gives him hope and the yoga pose he practiced every day for a year until he finally got it.
