    The Healing Power of Dogs with Erin Jorich

    The Healing Power of Dogs with Erin Jorich

    I love hearing how longtime yoga teachers make this career work. This week's guest, Erin Jorich, has figured out how to use her skillset as a yoga teacher and combine it with her love for dogs.
    Along with her dog, Wallace, Erin works part-time for Canine Inspired Change, an organization that brings dogs into schools, juvenile detention centers, and other settings to improve the well being and social emotional skills of the people there.
    On this episode, Erin talks about how her yoga skills are transferable to the dog therapy work she does: Her years of teaching yoga make it easy for her to communicate clearly and effectively with the dog/human "teams" she trains. Her trauma-informed yoga certification means she understands the importance of giving kids choice and agency when they're working with the dogs. 
    Erin finds that splitting her time between Canine Inspired Change and working as a yoga teacher afford her balance and stability that she might not have if she chose one over the other. Most importantly, as the folks she works with gain a variety of skills -- from more confidence to self-compassion to self-regulation -- she gets to witness the healing power of dogs firsthand.

    Authentic Body Positivity & Accidental Activism with Dianne Bondy

    Authentic Body Positivity & Accidental Activism with Dianne Bondy

    Dianne Bondy's web site declares in bold letters, "Yoga is for Every Body. No exceptions. You can do yoga." And she has devoted her teaching career to making sure this is the case. Over the past few decades, she has been proactive in creating yoga spaces that are empowering, inclusive, and equitable for all. I know Dianne from her playful and educational social media presence -- I had even more fun with her magnetic and charismatic presence in our talk. In our conversation she shares:

    How she became a self-proclaimed "accidental activist"Ideas for creating a more equitable classHow thinness is not equivalent to fitnessWeight-training, Pilates, and yoga as complements to each other, especially during menopauseHow being in diverse spaces helps us see more beautyBeing true to ourselves and our conditioning when it comes to body positivity

    "I am my own beloved, my own best friend" -- Susanna Harwood Rubin on navigating life with cancer

    Susanna Harwood Rubin is back! Susanna was my guest on episode 165, and we continue our intimate conversation here. Our conversation runs the gamut (but somehow all ties together), ranging from her recent trip to her spiritual home in India, to living fully and joyfully with metastatic breast cancer, to her passion for teaching her own form of "embodied writing."

    They're a vibe. Sound healing, parenting, podcasting & growing with Adam & Holly Husler

    They're a vibe. Sound healing, parenting, podcasting & growing with Adam & Holly Husler

    Adam and Holly Husler are an impressive yoga duo: Holly has gone from performing in a girl-band to singing healing mantras and becoming one of the UK’s leading crystal bowl sound healing trainers. Adam has taught classes, workshops and trainings in over 60 studios in over 20 countries, with a robust home schedule in London's leading studios. Together they are parents to a young son and co-hosts of the podcast, Honestly Unbalanced.
    On this episode, Jason and I catch up Adam and Holly to ask them the questions that folks often ask us: How do they balance their relationship while working and podcasting together? How has their practice changed and supported them as they've become new parents? How did Adam stumble and eventually find his voice as one of Instagram's funniest yoga reels creators? Plus, Holly shares all the goods on Sound Healing: How it works, why she started teaching it, and the empowering approach she takes when leading her online Sound Healing trainings.
    For links to Adam and Holly's trainings, Holly's album, and the interview Andrea did on Honestly Unbalanced, go to : yogalandpodcast.com/episode328

    7 Reasons to Make Your Home Yoga Practice a Priority

    7 Reasons to Make Your Home Yoga Practice a Priority

    This week Jason and I talk about why a home practice is essential if you want to integrate yoga in your day to day life. We also offer our thoughts on what constitutes home practice so that you give yourself a break and focus on what's important -- getting on your mat! Our hope is that home practice can be the thing in your life that consistently feels like a respite, a refuge, a haven.
    We hope you enjoy this conversation where we talk through these 7 distinct reasons that developing a home practice is beneficial:
    It's so much easier to be consistentYou can focus on regions of the body that need more supportYou can use it as a supplement to your studio classes (or other forms of exercise)You get to practice the poses you loveYou get to spend more time on the poses you want to master but struggle withWe all need a daily dose of self-regulationFor yoga teachers, it's a way to get in touch with your own voice, creativity, and insight
    I've linked to five essential sequences on our shownotes page: yogalandpodcast.com/episode326

NestaBunny ,

My go-to for yoga inspiration

I love this podcast, and am a long time listener. Andrea is such an insightful interviewer and I enjoy the diversity of subjects she chooses. I love the ones with Jason—I appreciate the detailed anatomy (I teach pilates too) and like how he applies it to yoga. But I also get so much out of the other yoga leaders Andrea chooses. The most recent one with Dianne Bondy was particularly inspiring. I look forward to each episode. Thank you for being consistently excellent!

heidiway ,

Yes! Definitely Listening!

This is an excellent podcast for yoga teachers, practitioners and enthusiasts! I am a yoga teacher who has fallen off her mat, looking for inspiration and this is it!

Yoga in Balance ,

Inspiring podcast, consistently fascinating even though I don’t agree with everything.

I look forward to every release and the questions that arise and topics covered. Clarifies my own thinking as a very long time teacher of adults and yoga teacher. Have you acknowledged or talked about Rama Jyoti Vernon as one of the co-founders of Yoga Journal? Dr. Lasater, as much as I respect and admire her, is not the only founder. Honesty.
