Recommend for anyone interested in yoga

Sure, Ashtanga is in the title and the guests and hosts all practice Ashtanga Yoga. However the conversation goes so much deeper than asana. I’d recommend to anyone interested in yoga.

Excellent and filled with insights

I really enjoy this podcast - Peg and her daughter interact so sweetly with each other, you can tell they have a close relationship; and it's good to hear these organic conversations that often lead to some deeper insights about being a yoga practitioner in our modern, crazy world; you realize these senior teachers are just living their lives, trying to do the best they can - like most of us; and that lifelong practice does have an impact on wellbeing and wisdom, too. I would love to hear more interviews of older non-authorized Ashtanga teachers and/or second generation teachers (i.e. students of the senior teachers in the community) that is, interviews of teachers who have quietly worked in the trenches teaching for a long time. There's a lot of wisdom there, and maybe even some healthy iconoclasm, too; it would be good to hear these folks' perspective about Ashtanga teaching and practice, as it is a not considered or valued within our small worldwide community of Ashtanga that tends to center the voices of a handful of well-known teachers.

Great guests, some room for improvement for the host

I listen to every single espisode and learn a lot, got really inspired from lots of the conversation. As some one who just started my ashtanga journey, this has been a valuable resource for my learning, and otherwise I don't think I would have a chance to listen to so many great teachers around the world in such a personal way. I am extremely grateful for the work Peg put into this.

With that said, I hope Peg can put aside the need of feeling offended/ upset (and I know it's hard) with all the negative reviews, instead try to take a step a back and see why they have such opinion - regardless of the way they say it.

I do feel that Peg sometime gets carried away talking too much about herself/ her own practice/ opinions (which, if not too much, is great because lots of us share those too). Peg tends to get too excited to talk as soon as the guest mention something that she has relevant experiences and sometime just cuts off the guest before they can elaborate their thoughts. If she can be a bit calmer/ quieter and gives the guests more space to talk, and makes her comments more neutral instead of mostly about her and how she practices, I will enjoy the podcast much much more.

I am not trying to criticize, just trying to contribute to what I think can make the podcast better. Hope you don't take it personal or get offensive, and thank you again for your work.
