Amy Matthews - Why Knowing More Anatomy Doesn't Necessarily Make A Better Yoga Teacher, Should We Be Teaching Headstand & Shoulderstand & How To Navigate The Pressure To Be Commercial As A Yoga Teacher, Ep. 015
On today’s episode I talk with Amy Matthews. Amy has been teaching movement for over 25 years. Amy is a yoga teacher, a body mind centering teacher, a certified laban movement analyst, and an infant developmental movement educator. Amy also co-authored the book Yoga Anatomy with Leslie Kaminoff, and was a director of the breathing project in NYC. Amy has since partnered with Sarah Barnaby to create the Babies Prohect - a space in NYC dedicated to developmental movement for babies. So, in other words - when it comes to movement, Amy really knows her shit.
Amy and I discuss, why knowing more anatomy & physiology is not what makes a great yoga teacher or prevents injury ( and Amy’s take on what does ), Amy’s perspective on if and how we should teach and practice headstand and shoulder stand in yoga, and how to navigate the pressure to be commercial as a yoga teacher.
