    Making Your Yoga Teaching More Accessible with Jivana Heyman

    Making Your Yoga Teaching More Accessible with Jivana Heyman

    It was such a delight to have Jivana Heyman back on the show to talk about his latest book, The Teacher's Guide to Accessible Yoga. (You can listen to our first chat at yogalandpodcast.com/episode176).
    The episode explores: What it means to be more collaborative in your teaching, how being more collaborative could help break down traditional hierarchical power dynamics that have led to teacher-student abuses in the past, the importance of overcoming impostor syndrome (especially if you don't think you look the part of the "typical" yoga teacher), his love of asana because of how accessible it makes the spiritual practice of yoga, and the importance of de-stigmatizing chair and bed yoga.

    Mind-Flow Mastery with Dr. Daya Grant

    Mind-Flow Mastery with Dr. Daya Grant

    So thrilled to have Daya Grant join me again on the podcast this week! You may remember Daya from episode 258 (This is Your Brain on Yoga). In her role as a mental performance coach, Daya utilizes tools from her background as a neuroscientist, athlete, and yogi. On this episode, Daya shares some of the fascinating research that shares in her online course, Mind-Flow Masterclass. She shares:

    Which mental performance tools she used to finish a half marathon (less than a year after giving birth to her second child!)How exercise upregulates BDNF and the ways this is beneficial for the brainHow exercising during high stress times can mediate our stress response and create more resilience for our future selfHow mantra and dristhi have been studied and shown to help settle the mindThe neuroscience of flow states and the four stages of flowSamadhi -- Daya and I have a similar interpretation on this for householders
    Check out more about Daya's offerings on the shownotes page: yogalandpodcast.com/episode317

The all about Jason Show

I used to love this podcast back when you regularly had guests.

But it now seems like its the all about Jason show.

I get that he’s your husband and you are using the podcast as a way to support your business,
But I miss the days of guest interviews.
