Robert Bill Jr

Robert had what you’d typically call what we perceive to be a happy and successful life. He a “good job”, was earning money & had a fancy title, but quickly learned a hard lesson:: You can have all the “trappings”
of success, but if you’re not taking care of yourself, it’s not possible to take care of anyone or anything
else.

Operating in a high demand & high-intensity work-environment while attempting to stay connected with family and friends. He was
struggling with achy joints & stiff muscles, anxiety and flights of panic, disconnection from his wife and family, high-blood pressure, and a nagging misalignment between who his workplace and society wanted him to be, and who he truly was on the inside.

So Robert decided to make a change in his life and follow a journey of mindful practice, where her now teaches yoga, strength and mindful practice to others and especially men through his Men’s Yoga Transformation program.

As he takes us through what it is to be mindful, the benefits and simple practices as breath work can help individuals feel grounded and centred. Robert chats to us about how mindfulness is to be in our own body and to be totally aware and intentionally acting as we go through it. His Mindful mantra of ‘Do what you’re doing while doing it’. 

As Robert’s main audience is men, he talks in detail about why he works with men in particular to help men practice mindfulness movement through yoga and breath work. He also talks about how men don’t have a role models to be a fully empowered male, and what it means to be an empowered male.

Robert’s tip to get into practising holistic strength and mindfulness:

  1. Taking intentional breaths – inhale for 6 seconds, exhale for 6 seconds.
  2. At the point of adaptability, be responsible – Take control – slow it down. 
  3. Changing your breath = changing your state

Ep. 029 – The power of paying it forward – Not so regular Joe interview w/ James Beck The Let me take a Selfie Podcast

In today’s “Not so regular Joe” episode we bring you a special guest all the way from Los Angeles USA, James Beck. James shares with us his incredible story of how he one day decided to give everything he owned away, and travel around 50 states to give his time to others and provide one act of service. In return, he asked those he served to Pay-it-Forward, which started an incredible domino effect in kindness and cooperative community.  James explains anyone can start to give back by simply doing an act of service. It can be as simple as smiling at someone in passing or holding a door for someone. Or even simply making eye contact to acknowledge presence. Enjoy the show!
