    Do twists detoxify? Unpacking 7 common yoga myths

    Do twists detoxify? Unpacking 7 common yoga myths

    Do twists detoxify? Is it safer to jump back to Chaturanga than Plank? In all likelihood you've heard -- or even taught? -- one of the yoga myths you'll hear on this episode. This is a judgement-free zone and not about shaming or guilting anyone! But it's important to unpack some of the idiosyncratic beliefs that get repeated in Yogaland and explore why it's time to let them go.
    PS: Is there a yoga myth that we missed? Post it on Instagram and tag @andreaferretti so we can see it!

    How to overcome common meditation obstacles and create a practice you love

    How to overcome common meditation obstacles and create a practice you love

    This week I'm sharing a topic that's dear to my heart, which is creating a meditation practice that you love. We all face common (often self-imposed) meditation obstacles, from telling ourselves we just "can't do it right," to feeling like we don't have time to stressing ourselves out with an austere approach that feels like drudgery. The truth is that meditation can be a very natural -- even pleasurable -- part of each day that helps you develop the skills and training to navigate life with less suffering and more joy. This episode will help set you up for meditation success!

    Harnessing the vagus nerve to "turn on your off switch" with Jill Miller

    Harnessing the vagus nerve to "turn on your off switch" with Jill Miller

    What is the vagus nerve? More importantly, why should we, as yogis, care? Jill Miller comes on the podcast this week to help us understand how we can tap into the vagus and stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system, bringing about the relaxation response. Jill shares her recipe -- "the 5 Ps,"-- for stimulating the vagus so that you can incorporate them into your own practice and teaching.

Yoga with Liana ,

Love this podcast!

I am always inspired by Andrea and/or Jason! Just love the rapport those two have and I appreciate their deep love for yoga. Andrea has such a beautiful voice that I could listen to all day. Andrea just exudes such warmth and compassion! She feels like your best friend!
I am loving the short and sweet meditations❤️

Simply the best

This podcast is nothing short of brilliant. I’ve been binge-listening since I discovered it about 6 months ago and, with each episode, it only gets better and better.
Andrea (& regular co-host Jason) are so knowledgeable, but also so open minded to every topic. The conversation is intelligent and relevant, but also so comfortable and inviting. If you are about all things yoga, or are just interested in learning, this is the number 1 podcast out there.
So many interesting guests and topics, but don’t judge by the episode title: they’re all good! Some episodes I’ve thought a subject wouldn’t really interest me: only to completely resonate with the guest and ideas. It’s just all good things. Stop reading this review and go subscribe now!

Obsessed!

This podcast brought me closer to my yoga practice and as someone who is interested in becoming a yoga teacher, this has been helping immensely. Andrea is such an amazing host and paired with Jason’s insights, makes it my favourite yoga podcast!
