The Modern Yogi with Nathan Kest
What does being a Spiritual Gangster mean to you?
Soft & Savage
How long have you been vegan and what helped you to make the change?
After learning about animal cruelty at a young age, I just didn't want to be a part of it. I’ve been vegan for 11 years.
How does being vegan affect you spiritually, physically, and mentally?
Spiritually, I feel a deeper connection to all beings. Physically, I feel strong with high energy! and mentally, being a vegan adds to a sense of purpose I have while on this planet.
What is your favorite yoga pose of the moment?
Down Dog. It's a great pose to ground down, refocus your breath and delve into your deeper self. There is so much strength in stillness.
Where is your favorite place to travel to, and what is your favorite part of traveling?
Capri, Italy! I’ll be going there next month on a yoga retreat!
What does being a yogi in our modern world mean to you?
It means being free from all the modern day problems most people concern themselves with.
What is your favorite mantra?
Things don’t happen to you. They happen for you.
"Be the change you want to see in the world". How can you make yourself the best version in order to have the best influence on the world around you?
By just being and embracing my true authentic self, it inspires others to be themselves.
