In 2011 I realized there is way more to yoga than I thought. Philosophy, Anatomy, Chakras; things public yoga classes only scratch the surface of.

I would leave my Yoga Teacher Training inspired and wanting to learn more. I wished there was a way to keep learning at that level outside of class but It didn't exist.

So I created the podcast that I wish existed. My goal is to share what I wish I knew starting out, what I'm learning now, and what other teachers are learning, and what works for them. I also aim to make yoga accessible to anyone, so this is free to all Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/yogateachertraining/support

    Today I share from the Quietmind Yoga Teacher Training lesson on Ayurveda. Having a yogic / Ayurvedic / sattvic diet may not seem so significant to teaching yoga but I believe how we eat is one of the most important decisions we make and it has a major effect on our mood and energy throughout the day. Ayurveda has known incredible methods to optimize our diet, energy and mood for thousands of years and many of them are being validated by modern science and research today. I share 5 of the most important ways to create an Ayurvedic / sattvic diet whether you are completely new to the topic or have been practicing it for decades, there are always new layers to explore.

    4 Types of Stretching + The Definition of Flexibility In Anatomy & Exercise Science

    What is the main reason most people practice yoga? If it is to increase flexibility then what is flexibility? We most often think of doing this with stretching but often only in one style of stretching - did you know that there are at least 4 types of stretching? I'll share about them in today's episode including one that I would never teach and why some teachers do suggest doing it.

    Fascia 101: What is Fascia? How to Release, Strengthen and Stretch Fascia in Yoga

    Fascia 101: What is Fascia? How to Release, Strengthen and Stretch Fascia in Yoga

    Yoga Anatomy is one of my favorite topics to teach and study - but it took a long time for me to really make sense of it. One of the more fascinating aspects of yoga anatomy is the fascia. This incredibly strong, yet adaptable connective tissue connects every muscle and bone of the body. How do we work with this tissue? Why is it so important? I'll share all about this in today's episode.

    Today is the last day to join the Quietmind Membership at http://www.quietmind.yoga/membership - 80+ video classes + new monthly themes + amazing global community. Tomorrow we start our new series working with Ayurveda, the sister science of yoga to learn your dosha (type) and create habits and practices to create balance, focus and live in alignment with what matters most to you. 

    In this episode I share some thoughts from inside the Quietmind Yoga Teacher Training about how important meditation is and the ONLY thing that we truly have control over is our attention + how to direct that attention to notice which areas of our lives are out of balance / "de ranged" either deficient or excessive via the Chakra system. I'll share specific meditations you can use for each chakra and offer a free PDF download that lays it all out for you at http://www.quietmind.yoga/meditations
