Episode 91: Q&A – Jason’s Thoughts on Warrior I, Navasana, and “Advanced” Yoga

Jason’s back on the podcast this week answering some of the best questions we’ve gotten in about yoga postures. (Yogaland listeners are a smart, inquisitive bunch!)

We dive into:
* Why he rarely teaches Virabhadrasna I (Warrior I Pose) and how he feels about “squaring” the hips
* What Jason teaches instead of Warrior I (and what a relief it is)
* The differences between Paripurna Navasana (Full Boat Pose) and Ardha Navasna (Half Boat Pose) and which one is better for strengthening the core muscles
* What to do when you can’t breathe deeply in twists
* What it means to be an advanced yoga practitioner

Episode 50: Any Amount of the Pose is Still the Pose

On this episode Jason answers listener Kat’s question, “How do I make sure I’m not leaving anyone out as I teach my mixed level power yoga classes?”

Jason acknowledges how difficult this can be for everyone in the room and he has some really great tactical strategies to share including:

* Sequencing in such a way that everyone can participate in some way and experience the progression of building a pose
* Diffusing tension with humor
* Encouraging students to engage in their yoga practice as a learning process. No kicking stones because you can’t do a pose!
* Helping students see that thoughts are not always solid
* Pitching your studio to do a beginning yoga series

Episode 43: Q&A W/ Jason – Sacroiliac Pain, Tailbone Cues, & Wonky Knees

Hi everyone!

This week, Jason comes back to Yogaland to answer your questions, specifically:
– Is the cue ‘flatten your tailbone’ correct or outdated?
– Why do yoga teachers tell us to flex the foot in Pigeon Pose? How does it protect the knee?
– Why is sacroiliac pain such a pain in the a$$?

Thank you to all of you who have sent in questions!
