    #17 Lisa de Jong on Menstrual Cycle Awareness and Hormonal Health

    #17 Lisa de Jong on Menstrual Cycle Awareness and Hormonal Health

    Lisa de Jong (@lisa_dejong_coach) is an Ireland-based women's health coach specialised in the menstrual cycle. Most of her work is about creating menstrual cycle awareness and in our conversation she explains exactly what that is, why it’s important and how you can start to connect more with your cycle even if you don’t have one at the moment. In this episode of the YAY!YOGA podcast we get very practical about balancing hormones through diet and lifestyle changes. Lisa speaks about her own healing journey through endometriosis, we discuss hormonal and non-hormonal birth control methods and cover way more hormones and cycle-related topics. Grab a pen and paper because Lisa shares a lot of valuable information and you might want to make some notes for yourself.

    #16 Olivia Allnutt on stretching techniques and intelligent ways of teaching

    #16 Olivia Allnutt on stretching techniques and intelligent ways of teaching

    Olivia Allnutt is a highly experienced strength and flexibility coach, based in Australia. She's the co-director of Stretch Therapy™ together with her partner Kit Laughlin, who is the founder of the Stretch Therapy Method. They both have great knowledge on the human body and they have researched and developed stretching techniques for every body, regardless their experience or 'restrictions'. Their main focus is to help people feel comfortable in their body by removing any restrictions, tension and tightness and develop a sense of body awareness. I was super excited and felt honoured to have this chat with Olivia on the YAY!YOGA podcast. In our conversation Olivia's shares many words of wisdom and advice for teachers who want to teach in an intelligent way. We discuss a range of techniques in the Stretch Therapy system, such as partner stretching and how to do it safely, we talk about the importance of the breath, the use of language and touch when teaching and we talk about offering variations of (yoga) poses for each student in the room.

    #14 Sebastiaan Pagano on flexibility vs. mobility, different types of stretching and is yin yoga an efficient way of training flexibility?

    #14 Sebastiaan Pagano on flexibility vs. mobility, different types of stretching and is yin yoga an efficient way of training flexibility?

    Sebastiaan Pagano (@sebas_pagano) is a strength and flexibility coach from Amsterdam, who has a lot of experience and knowledge in flexibility training for adults. In his search for the best method to increase his own range of motion he explored a broad range of disciplines, such as yoga, martial arts, movement and gymnastics. Through this journey he researched and experimented with many different stretching methods, among which some very efficient and aggressive ones that we will discuss in this episode of the YAY!YOGA podcast. We also talk about the misconceptions and myths in flexibility training, the difference between mobility and flexibility, yin yoga and the role of genetics in increasing your range of motion. I very much enjoyed this in-depth conversation and hope you get something out of it too.

    #13 David Kam on the importance of play, embodiment and the art of language

    #13 David Kam on the importance of play, embodiment and the art of language

    David Kam (@davidkamkw) is a London-based teacher of movement. His classes are non-traditional and are probably best described as a fusion of yoga, dance and animal flow. He likes to surprise his students and offers them space to play and explore new pathways. The sunny side of the current lockdown is definitely that I get to practice with teachers from around the globe through Zoom. David is one of the teachers that I was lucky enough to practice with during this Covid crisis and I am very grateful that we got the chance to record a podcast episode too. In our conversation, we talk about embodiment and the use of language as a teacher, the importance of play and changing things up, how growing up in Malaysia taught David the art of fusing different element, David’s handstand journey and so much more. I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did. Enjoy listening!

    #12 Erica Jago on Kundalini yoga, discovering chakra imbalances and dealing with heavy emotions

    #12 Erica Jago on Kundalini yoga, discovering chakra imbalances and dealing with heavy emotions

    Erica Jago (@erica_jago) is a yoga teacher, graphic designer and creator of two books: Art of Attention with Elena Brower and Angelus with Roos van der Kamp. The latter is a beautifully designed modern workbook on the chakras, a topic that we’ll discuss into details on the YAY!YOGA podcast. Erica used to live in Amsterdam and moved back to the US where she was born and now lives with her daughter, close to her family. I was so inspired by this conversation as Erica speaks so beautifully about the ancient science of the chakras and her own healing journey. We also talk about Kundalini yoga, dealing with heavy emotions, overcoming addiction, and how to discover chakra imbalances if you don’t feel an obvious block.

The podcast I was waiting for

I can really recommend listening to Yay! Yoga podcast. It’s truly interesting for all yoga practitioners. Renée invites inspiring guests, is knowledgable and uses her own experience as a yoga teacher to ask the right questions. Can’t wait to hear the next episode.
