yin yoga + Jason

Hi Andrea & Jason, I'm sad to hear there was some backlash to your conversation on Yin Yoga. Although Jason may not be an authrotiy on Yin Yoga, he certainly knows what he's talking about when it comes to the science of anatomy and how the body works. I've been teaching a few years less than Jason and have also shifted my teaching from deeper study & understanding of how the body works. I use to hold students in pigeon pose anywhere from 5-9 minutes and now they get 30 - 45 seconds as dessert. We know the practice is confronting and uncomfortable, I also feel that hearing new approaches to teaching can feel contronting and uncomfortable. It's a learning curve. You don't know what you don't know until you know. Now that I know more about the harmful effects of static stretchning sans strenght + control over passive range, I can't simply turn a blind eye because students want long holds. I feel it would be irresponsible of me and a disservice to them. All this to say, I think Jason has every place to talk about Yin Yoga and it's effects on the body. I also love listening to Bernie Clark speak on Yin and would be curious if he's encoutered similiar trainings/teachers/phyisicians/movement specialists/etc. as Jason who speak to the challenges of long static holds. Not sure if Jason is aware of Dr. Andreo Spina's FRC work, but it's fascinating and would confirm everything Jason spoke about in your Yin episode.

I really enjoy your podcast, especially episodes with you and Jason. Thank you x 1000000000

I really love this episode. (actually I love them all) I love that Jason felt so welcome at the Y and it encouraged him to continue coming to classes. I teach all over my city but the class most dear to my heart is my class at the Y. The sense of community and inclusion has kept me there for years. I only hope I can offer that to someone someday. <3
