Rosie Acosta on Taking Risks to Love Your Life

episode 53

Today I’m speaking with Rosie Acosta. I met Rosie randomly through email. I was looking around for podcasts that I could pitch myself to be a guest on, to talk about the Records, and found Rosie’s show Radically Loved. I wrote an email to her and she replied immediately. She told me that she actually receives hundreds and hundreds of emails for her show and isn’t able to get back to even half of them but something about my words and my email struck her. She needed to connect.

And honestly, from that moment I felt as though I’ve known Rosie forever. A true soul sister! We’ve only spoken twice – she interviewed me, I interviewed her (and I also read her Records) but the conversation flowed so freely, so effortlessly, I really think you’re going to enjoy learning from her!

Rosie Acosta is an Inspirational Speaker, Yoga & Meditation Teacher and a Yoga Teacher Trainer, a Holistic Health Coach. As the founder of Radically Loved: Yoga, Health + Wellness, she is also the host of the Radically Loved Radio podcast.

In all her work, Rosie teaches and practices being guided by RADICAL LOVE every day and connecting to that through yoga, diet, affirmation, self-inquiry, and curiosity. In helping others find their unique gifts and fire within, she aims to create practices and connect with people in a way that will help everyone live radically loved lives together. 

In our conversation we discuss Rosie's childhood around drugs, alcohol and violence and her personal experience with alcohol and drugs, when she found yoga and how that changed her life path, choosing a sober life to serve our higher purpose, why Rosie quit her job during the recession and how to know when it’s time to change your life and how important it is to celebrate the process, not just the result.

And stay tuned for the end of the episode to hear how I switch up the last question for this episode and all future ones going forward.
