    The Antidote to Imposter Syndrome for Yoga Teachers

    The Antidote to Imposter Syndrome for Yoga Teachers

    Most of us have felt insecure from time to time. Occasionally that insecurity shows up as imposter syndrome, or feeling like a fraud or unworthy of the position you hold.
    On this episode we explore the different reasons imposter syndrome might arise for yoga teachers and how to reframe things so that you don't get in your own way. We also reflect on the role that gender can play, and when imposter syndrome might be an important signal that you don't want to ignore.

    Helping Kids Self-Regulate Through Yoga with James Woods

    Helping Kids Self-Regulate Through Yoga with James Woods

    My guest on this episode of Yogaland is therapist and yoga teacher, James Woods. About 10 years ago, in his work a therapist in the juvenile justice system, foster care system, and mental health system, James felt like he was not able to make an impact the way he'd hoped.⁠

    When he discovered yoga, he felt like he found himself and his purpose -- and he decided to bring it to the kids and teachers in his community.⁠

    On this episode, we talk about how yoga was the perfect adjunct to James' training as a therapist, the importance of teaching kids self-regulation, and how essential it is to feel a sense of belonging.⁠

    James also shares a very wise(and crucial!) approach to take if you'd like to teach yoga in schools. ⁠

A little confused

I love this podcast so much! I love you, Andrea, and I could listen to Jason talk about the mechanics of yoga all day long. I’m excited to listen (and watch) all the new episodes, but I was a little confused by the Reema Datta interview. I never really understood what she meant by “cultural appropriation in the yoga world.” I found her article online (hoping to gain clarity there), but I still didn’t get it. I’d love to understand exactly what she meant. I think it’s hard to love something as much as many of us love yoga and *not* want to take on what it represents to us. Maybe there’s a fine line between loving something that has such deep cultural roots and simultaneously respecting those roots from a bit of a distance.

Keep doing great work!!

Love the new additions

I appreciate this podcast and Andrea and Jason so much! The opportunity to keep learning from such generous and excellent teachers is a gift and the new “teachers companion” additions have been wonderful reminders of things learned in Jason’s trainings along with lots of new content, practices and food for thought as well. This podcast is essential for yoga teachers and practitioners alike. Highly recommended!
