This week's guest on the RISE podcast, Inner Momologue, is intuitive and holistic practitioner, Celeste Burruel. Celeste is the owner of Mystic Zen Wellness. We begin by discussing the challenge in juggling the two different worlds of a professional job and a professional passion practice. We reflect on the concept that we all wear masks that fit roles in our various environments and we also discuss the importance that chaos can play in our lives by helping us to grow.

This week's guest on Inner Monologue is Beau Ash, ex-military turned yogi Cross Fit trainer. He discusses his story of upbringing and determining his life's direction, joining the military and what that taught him in shaping his perspective in life. Later in his journey he found the path of yoga and shares how that helped him in self discovery, as a teacher, a man and in handling his own mindfulness and physical health. We also discuss the profound moments in life when you take a chance and make enormous changes and how that can shape your future. Beau offers a representation as a much more masculine version of the mainstream yogi path.
