Approaching Injury in Yoga with Monica Arellano
Confronting injury within a yoga asana practice can be overwhelming, not knowing how to approach the practice you’ve come to rely on as your daily and sacred ritual.
There are many lessons to learn during the process of healing, but understanding how to overcome the obstacles and adapt the practice can be difficult to navigate alone.
Join Monica in a community yoga talk where she shares her experiences with injury within the practice, how she found her way forward and how it continues to inform her practice and definition of yoga today.
It's a conversation, where some of the students participating had a chance to share their experiences with injury, any doubts still coming up as a result and any lessons they learned that might inspire someone else.
An opportunity to support and listen to one another to continue moving together along this path of learning and growing.

Ty Landrum on Personal and Mythological Reflections on Ashtanga Yoga
This past weekend we had the honor of hosting Ty Landrum for a workshop at Miami Life Center. His love and understanding for the spirit of the practice and its expression through philosophy, the breath, movement and asana, was experienced by all those present.
Good news, we recorded one of his talks for you! Tune in as he shares a mythical story he feels portrays the path of a contemplative practice. He presents it as a metaphor for the type of consciousness we are trying to uncover in yoga and immerse ourselves in. Ty then goes on to share his reflections on the Ashtanga Yoga System and how its intelligence leads us towards transformation.
Ty Landrum is the director of the Yoga Workshop in Boulder, Colorado. He teaches Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga in the traditional, contemplative and experimental style of his mentors, Mary Taylor and Richard Freeman. With a PhD in Philosophy, Ty has a special touch for explaining the theory of yoga with color and creativity. His passion as a teacher is to share the brilliance of yoga with anyone who wants to learn.

Wonderful podcast, but hard to hear
I love this podcast, but it is really hard to hear. When I listen in my car I have to turn the sound all the way up (don't have to do this for other podcasts) and even then it's impossible to hear the questions. Kino and Tim are inspirational and also very funny and charismatic. I just wish I could hear this better!
Thank you for the podcast
Grateful for Natalia's yoga nidra recordings
These are deep talks about yoga and what it means to practice consistently. Thank you to everyone involved with this podcast. It has shed light on the philosophy of yoga for me.
