Kripalu Perspectives Podcasts

Personally and professionally, Portland's been exploring the world of natural and alternative healing practices for nearly two decades.

She's experienced countless modalities from past life regression therapy to Panchakarma, from sweat lodge ceremonies to soul retrieval -- and her innate curiosity about healing and the body-mind-spirit connection never abates.

She's the creator, host, and executive producer of What's the Alternative? on the former Veria Living TV (on Verizon FiOS, DISH, and Frontier). She recently hosted the New York City talk show, To Your Health (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W0SXIX4NLfI) on Net TV and hosted and produced the YouTube series, Headlines, Health, & Healing. Portland's also appeared on WGBH's Greater Boston as an alternative medicine contributor.

As host and producer of Kripalu Perspectives, a podcast she created for the Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health, Portland spent 7 years interviewing leaders in the natural health world. Her interest in merging media and alternative therapies began years ago when she created and hosted 26 episodes of Journeys Into Healing for Wisdom Television.

As a host, reporter, producer, and writer, she's further explored the topic for shows airing on the Hallmark Channel, Oxygen, PBS, the Comcast Network, WCVB-TV, Vermont Public Television, Wisdom Television, and WZMY-TV and for magazines likeBody + Soul and Alternative Medicine. Currently, she writes for the Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health.

Over the years, she's interviewed the likes of Deepak Chopra, Barbara Brennan, Dr. Joe Dispenza, Jean Houston, Gabrielle Bernstein, Dr. Joan Borysenko, Ilana Rubenfeld, Joan Halifax, Donald Epstein, Rosemary Gladstar, Loretta LaRoche, Jonathan Ellerby, Dr. Herbert Benson, Dr. Mark Liponis, Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, Dr. Edward Hallowell, Dr. Tal Ben-Shahar, Dr. Maoshing Ni, and Dr. Mark Hyman.
