In 2011 - in my first Teacher Training - I realized there is way more to yoga than I thought. Philosophy, technique, history, practices that public yoga classes only scratch the surface of.

I would leave 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 wish I knew 3 years in, 7 years in, and what I'm learning now - to make a version of Yoga Teacher Training that's available to everyone. For free. Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/yogateachertraining/support

    10: How to Avoid Burnout with Lisa Feder

    10: How to Avoid Burnout with Lisa Feder

    Today I get to interview Lisa Feder. Lisa is an experienced yoga teacher, MBA and author of "A Year of Mindful Wellness." We talked about how to avoid burnout - and an experienced that Lisa had recently of realizing her cup was empty and how she navigated that. We talk about the need for intentions and directing our attention to be focused. We discuss how the simple gratitude practice Lisa has been doing recently and how it's shifted her perspective of things, and how you can apply it too. I also share my own experience with Lisa and how something she said to me changed the way I approach my schedule. 


    You can follow Lisa on Instagram at @beingwellyoga. Her website is http://www.beingwellyoga.com. You can check out her next retreat here and purchase her book on Amazon here.
