    The Neurobiology of Trauma + Yoga with Sarah Kadel

    The Neurobiology of Trauma + Yoga with Sarah Kadel

    I'm so happy to have Sarah Kadel on the podcast today. Sarah is an Austin-based yoga teacher who is serving as a mentor teacher in Jason’s online advanced teacher training this year. I wanted to share her story with you because I think the world needs to hear her message about how yoga can be so helpful for those who have suffered with trauma in their lives. 


    Sarah shares:


    * How yoga helped her understand and move past addiction
    * What the newest body of research says about the neurobiology of trauma
    * Helpful tips for yoga teachers who hope to make their classes trauma-informed or more friendly for students with all types of trauma
    * What to look for (and what to avoid) when you are looking for a trauma-informed yoga teacher

    Yoga, Chai and a Dog

    Yoga, Chai and a Dog

    Today Jason and I are talking with Archna Mohan and Deepak Mohan, the hosts of the wonderful yoga podcast, Yoga, Chai, and a Dog, We touch on some of the things we have in common: podcasting, yoga, and what it's like to work with your spouse.


    We also ask a lot of questions about some areas where we differ. They share how yoga isn't something they "learned" growing up in India--it was just a part of their culture and a way of life. Deepak explains why he considers himself a non-yogi. And Archna talks about her background in the health and fitness industry and opens up about what it's like being a South Asian yoga teacher in the U.K.

    The Sutras, Part 2: Defining citta, vrittis, and the gunas

    The Sutras, Part 2: Defining citta, vrittis, and the gunas

    Last week Jason shared the foundational concepts of purusha and prakriti. Go back and listen if you haven't yet! This week, we continue to talk through foundational concepts that Patanjali presents in The Yoga Sutra -- citta, vrittis, and the gunas. Jason defines terms and paints a picture of how they all fit together. And we also talk about how much we personally believe that Patanjali applies to our own lives.

    The Sutras, Part I: Unpacking Purusha and Prakriti

    The Sutras, Part I: Unpacking Purusha and Prakriti

    Today is the first in a series of episodes where Jason shares the underpinnings of Patanjali. Most yoga students have heard their teachers reference Patanjali and the text that he is known for, The Yoga Sutra. But rarely do teachers have time to unpack this seminal text. For this episode, Jason shares the foundational concepts of purusha and prakriti and the samkya philosophy that informs Patanjali's worldview.

Thank you!

Thank you for diving into the Samkhya system! Jason does a great job of giving an overview and then diving into the details. His clear style of communication helped me to begin to understand something so complex. I have listened to your podcast since the beginning and this episode really made me want to tell everyone “you need to listen to this podcast!” Thank you so much!

ExcellentShow ,
