    Patanjali Part I: Unpacking Purusha and Prakriti

    Patanjali 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.

    The Art of Deep Rest with Tracee Stanley

    The Art of Deep Rest with Tracee Stanley

    I think of today’s guest, Tracee Stanley, as the queen of Yoga Nidra.


    n this episode, Tracee shares about this the practice of deep rest and why it is so healing. She also offers some suggestions for how to experience those benefits more fully--like taking your practice outdoors and getting in touch with nature. We talk about everything from how to drop into Yoga Nidra if you’re prone to anxiety to what it was like to teach to Oprah and Gayle.

    Body Positivity as a Practice with Amber Karnes

    Body Positivity as a Practice with Amber Karnes

    Amber Karnes -- the founder of Body Positive Yoga and the co-creator of the Accessible Yoga Training -- is my guest this week! Amber shares her story of how yoga has helped her change her relationship to her body, from one that was punitive to one that's more accepting and present. Amber offers so much insight and guidance in this conversation including:


    - How body positivity is not a linear path with an endpoint -- it's closer to recovering from addiction in that you are always in recovery


    - Resources for a "weight neutral" approach to health


    - The fatphobia that we may be complicit in when we bash our own bodies


    - Why behaviors are more important than body size


    - The vital question to ask ourselves every time we consume media 


    - The importance of doing body positive work while you are in community


    I'm so grateful to Amber for sharing the years of research and work she's done in this space.

    The Upsides of Online Teaching with Erin Jorich

    The Upsides of Online Teaching with Erin Jorich

    Today’s guest is Erin Jorich, a yoga teacher from Minnesota who is also serving as a mentor teacher in Jason’s 300-hour teacher training this year. I really enjoyed learning more about her path from an MTV-taught dancer in her college years to becoming the talented yoga teacher she is today.


    I also found her perspective on the positive aspects of teaching yoga online refreshing. We agree that there’s something authentic and real about practicing with people who are in the comfort of their own homes--whether their cameras are on or off!

    Grief, Mr. Rogers, & Holding Space with Adam Hocke

    Grief, Mr. Rogers, & Holding Space with Adam Hocke

    This week, my guest is U.K. based teacher, Adam Hocke. Adam -- like Jack Workman in episode 221 -- is serving as a mentor in Jason's current online teacher training program. Adam is such a talented teacher in his own right -- balancing thoughtful and precise vinyasa yoga with his unique brand of warmth and humor. Adam and I spoke about many things but the common thread was one of my very favorite topics: emotions. He shared how yoga helped him through devastating grief, how he endeavors to incorporate self-compassion into vinyasa classes, and how he surrendered his role as a theatrical showman to become a yoga teacher who holds space for his students to feel their feelings and experience their own yoga.

Body positivity

just listened to this episode with Amber Karnes. For where I am right now, this topic resonated and I loved her perspective and insights. I’m just starting out as a Health Coach and wanting to work with people on this very topic, personal for me as well. I am a yoga teacher and a physical therapist assistant which are also all about meeting someone where they are and that is exactly as it should be. Love her book recommendations and plan to f/u to read. Thank you so much for your work with this podcast…..Love your interview style and topics.
