    Ep. 32: Sleep Hygiene, Insomnia and Yoga Therapy: How to get Restorative Sleep

    Ep. 32: Sleep Hygiene, Insomnia and Yoga Therapy: How to get Restorative Sleep

    In this episode I talk about the "Sleep Hygiene" strategies that I use with my patients and clients. Good quality sleep is a corner stone of good health and our ability to heal. It impacts our memory, our mood and our experience throughout the day. Good quality sleep is also one of the first things we address when working with individuals that suffer from chronic pain. 

    There is a video that goes with the audio found in this podcast on YouTube: LauraGyoga: The Yoga Focus Method

    Ep. 29: The 5 Books I use to Teach Yoga Anatomy Teacher Training Module- LauraGyoga

    In this episode I talk about the 5 books I use the most frequently when teaching the Anatomy & body science portion of Yoga Teacher Training. These books are great resources for grounding our teachings in science and backing up what we do in yoga with what is happening in our physiology.  These are the books that I used when creating my online Yoga Anatomy courses: "Foundations in Anatomy & Body Science for Yoga Teachers" Here: https://www.udemy.com/course/foundations-in-anatomy-for-yoga-teachers-1/?referralCode=173CD4499E32AE50F36D

    Ep. 28: The Expanded Kosha Model of Yoga Therapy: Looking at the Person in Context - LauraGyoga

    Ep. 28: The Expanded Kosha Model of Yoga Therapy: Looking at the Person in Context - LauraGyoga

    In this episode I talk about the Kosha model- the Layers that make up a person, which is the foundation for the yoga therapy process. I take what I have learned in my 10 years as an Occupational Therapist and expand this view to understand how a person exists in context of their surroundings and how a person's surroundings impact the layers of our being. There is an associated Yoga White Board to visualize this on Instagram @LauraGyoga and a video on YouTube at Laura Goellner's Yoga Focus Method.

    Ep. 27: The Best Self Development Books for Yoga Teachers & Book Giveaway

    In this episode I talk about the 4 books I have read that I think are the most important for the self development of yoga teachers. In the last episode I talked about the 4 main categories of education that go into being a great yoga teacher & one of them was the relationship to the self and the relationship to others (students). These books will give you the tools to work on those skills of relationship and connection to yourself and others so that you can more effectively convey the teachings of yoga.
