    recast! watch your language! a yoga teacher's guide

    language!⁠

    consider these common yoga teacher terms:
    "modification" - something one does if a student can't do the full pose
    "variation" - a variation on the standard⁠ - normally for more advanced students.

    this language is a problem. ⁠

    because it makes it seem that there is a 'standard' pose we all should work to... and we could all get there if we work enough. those who can do the standard teach everyone else (cos they can) and invite those who can to push it even further with 'variations' (for advanced people). ⁠

    this leaves the vast majority who cannot do the 'standard' and have to 'modify' (and get given all those cues to 'improve').⁠

    and how does that feel? exactly.

    i want to you to consider that dropping these words is not being politically correct, spiritually liberal or inclusive. this language is bad because it is bad anatomy... come join me :-D

    recast! what do you do when you get injured in yoga?

    injury is unavoidable in life. we move too little or move too. and very often we have no idea why we injured ourselves. i offer my insight from years of practice and working with those in extremes - too little or too much... my answers may surprise you :-)

    benoy mathew

    Benoy Matthew is a registered physiotherapist, currently working in London, United Kingdom. As a clinician since 1998, he treated injuries ranging from minor ankle sprains to complex multi-trauma sports injury, but now specialises in hip and groin injuries for serious sports men & women.

    In a recent interview with the BBC, Benoy commented that many yoga teachers came to him with injuries which he felt could be avoided.

    I am excited to welcome Benoy and explore how we can all be smarter, more compassionate with our bodies in our Yoga. We talk about Benoy's 3 pillars of a good physical workout - stretching, cardio, strength (and how we need to have them all), how we are all different and how to identify difference between muscular pain and joint pain.

    yoga history

    yoga history

    Yoga students often their yoga history from yoga schools & gurus with specific viewpoints or spiritual takes on the world.

    This is great but potentially sub-optimal. Because they learn from a certain point of view, Yogis often miss out on a neutral, factual take on yoga, the ideas and the (crazy) characters in the 8,000+ years of the yoga story. Join me to listen to the facts without (so much) dogma!
