Alan Steelman exemplifies someone who has accomplished much in his career. Having had a highly successful, yet, stressful careers being a former US Congress (R-Tx) and a global management consultant, Alan is a man who understands the need for work-life balance and the critical importance of mind, body, and spirit ‘fitness’.
At the ripe age of 75 years-old, certified yoga instructor, speaker, and author of Yoga on the Yellow Brick Road Exiting the A.S.A.P. Lane! Calm Your Mind, Alan Steelman, in an interview with the Bloomer Boomer Show shares a movement that he is most passionate about – a movement and an awareness addressing the single greatest and mental health challenge facing the U.S. and the developed world, the A.S.A.P. (Anxiety, Stress, Addiction, and Pressure) Lane.
The Bloomer Boomer Show is about the tools and experiences to Embrace Age – Empower Dreams – Embrace Life focusing on Plus 50 Good Life Movement.
In the interview, Alan relayed his first-hand experience being on the A.S.A.P. Lane – from losing his brother (with manic depression) due to suicide, from which has also caused much stress, anxiety, and trauma to him and his family, to experiencing different levels of stresses during his management and political years.
The mind-opening podcast has also found Alan giving light about the natural “pharmacy in the brain” or the feel-good chemicals such as endorphins, dopamine, oxytocin, and serotonin which according to him, is readily available at birth and accessible through yoga and meditation.
In a hope to inspire “unconverted” about the healing power of yoga especially those who are mostly men, African-Americans, Hispanics, seniors, and kids/teens/college age students who are hard hit by the stress epidemic, Alan has written, Yoga on the Yellow Brick Road to share the good news that there’s an exit ramp to the A.S.A.P. Lane!
According to Alan, “Yoga is not a religion. Yoga is a mind and body health regimen. The purpose of yoga is to calm the agitation of the mind. We are born with body, mind, and spirit… If the mind is calm, the spirit will always make the right choice.”
