    Bonus Episode: Teaching Yoga + Mom Life = Possible!

    Bonus Episode: Teaching Yoga + Mom Life = Possible!

    Today, I have an inspiring story to share with you that I think many of you will relate to.


    Erin Landsee is a yoga teacher and mom of three who had finally found a work-life balance that worked for her family--teaching yoga at a local college. Like so many, she found herself starting over when the Covid-19 pandemic hit. With little kids at home 24/7, it wasn't all smooth sailing. But with a little extra creativity and perseverance, Erin pivoted and made things work for her family. It sounds like it's better than ever!


    Listen in to find out how she shifted her business to make it work with her busy work-from-home life.


    I'd also love to hear from you! Do you have a story about how this pandemic has shaped your teaching? Email me at andrea@jasonyoga.com.

    On Leadership in Yoga

    On Leadership in Yoga

    Today, Jason and I dive into the topic of leadership in the yoga community. People love their yoga teachers--so much! And while there’s a lot of good that comes from that, it can also set up an unbalanced power dynamic. We talk about the student-teacher power differential and some of the circumstances that put yoga teachers at risk of (knowingly or unknowingly) abusing their power.


    Then, we get into our thoughts about how to know when to trust a yoga teacher, some of the problems with blindly following a yoga lineage, and subtle (but powerful) ways yoga teachers can step down off the pedestal.

    Tapping into our resilience

    Tapping into our resilience

    As the world edges ever close to the one year mark of being in the midst of a pandemic, many of us are feeling weary. This week, Jason and I talk about resilience -- how it's been tested and how we tap into it using the tools from our yoga practice both on and off the mat. Hope it helps you tap into your own resilience during these challenging times.

    Getting Serious about Joy with Bradshaw Wish

    Getting Serious about Joy with Bradshaw Wish

    We can all use a little more joy and creativity in our lives right now -- especially after months of teaching and taking online yoga classes. Chicago-based yoga teacher Bradshaw Wish is just the breath of fresh air we all need. It matters not that much of the world is going back into lockdown -- Bradshaw's annual Mariah Carey Christmas Flow must go on! We talk about this upcoming not-to-be missed event, how it came to be, and how creating space for joy and creativity is a deeply important part of Bradshaw's intention as a yoga teacher.

Zen_Arjie ,

Excellent podcasts - thank you

This is an updated review - 2 years after my first one. Still listen with pleasure and affection and always come away with valuable nuggets of information. Keep it up - what a team !

Andrea & Jason - just to say I find your podcasts really helpful, informative and extremely enjoyable. Your guests are excellent and provide a wealth of useful resources for reference. I'm a UK-based yoga teacher (live just outside London) and keep missing Jason's workshops because I don't sign up quick enough! Maybe next year .... Keep up the great work and THANK you both :)

Very grateful for this podcast

Just wanted to leave a quick message to say that this podcast has been an absolute lifeline for me recently...Andrea, thank you so much for the care you put into these episodes, for your sincerity and vulnerability, and for being such a thoughtful, unassuming and insightful guide to this discipline — it is so so appreciated.

Em Thomson ,

SO inspiring!

I love all these podcasts! They've been keeping me company whilst I go for runs during lock-down, but also have kept me motivated and curious to continually grow as a yoga teacher. Thank you so much everyone involved in each episode - this is such an amazing resource to have
