    Will breaking with convention break your back?

    Will breaking with convention break your back?

    “There’s more than one right.” This is something that Jason says often during his trainings. It applies to many different types of yoga postures (and many life circumstances, too!). 
    For today’s episode, we’re talking about how it applies to backbending. Do you really have to keep your feet hip distance apart and parallel to each other? And what’s the risk of playing with different types of alignment?

    Nobody likes how they look on Zoom

    Nobody likes how they look on Zoom

    Jason has recorded hundreds (if not thousands!) of hours of asana and lecture videos in the last few years. And yet, it might surprise you to learn that he’s still a little self conscious about how he looks on video.
    Everyone has insecurities—even yoga teachers who have been getting in front of students for decades. So, on today's episode we're talking about some of our insecurities. We hope the conversation helps you feel less alone if you've ever felt this way and inspires you to keep showing up for your students anyway.

    Why sequencing is a modern yoga teacher's most important skill

    Why sequencing is a modern yoga teacher's most important skill

    Ninety minutes is a really long time to stand in front of a group and talk, no matter how much you know about the topic! That's why having a clear plan is key for yoga teachers. (Because, as Jason points out, if you don't have some sort of plan, you'll either go off on random tangents or run out of things to say.) 
    Today, Jason shares how he plans his yoga class sequences so his students are engaged and learning something meaningful every time. Plus, he addresses one of the most common objections yoga teachers give for not planning (creativity) and why he believes having a structure actually gives teachers more room to be creative, not less.

    Your students are not your brand ambassadors

    Your students are not your brand ambassadors

    What do you hope to teach your students when you teach yoga? Is it to make shapes with their bodies? How about your teacher trainees -- is it to memorize and repeat your sequences and study only with you? This week, Jason shares the foundational values that inform his educational style, namely helping students become clear, critical, and independent thinkers that value context and understand different perspectives.
    Teaching this way means that you welcome questions, you allow a diversity of opinions, you encourage students to -- gasp! -- have more than one teacher or modality, and yet you still hold a container for so that your teaching is clear and accessible. ⁠

I love Andrea and Jason and how they share their combined love of yoga in the interview. Jason has helped guide me with his knowledge and experience as a respected yoga teacher. He has good insights in how to share your practice with others.

Jason: “My Spanish is really good from growing up in To-leh-doh”…

Like really? So distracted by this comment I couldn’t even enjoy the podcast. The first 8 minutes of this podcast episode really should’ve been edited for relevancy. Sigh.
