Episode 76: Jason Crandell on Yoga Injuries — “Yoga is Good For You. Most Extreme Things are Not.”

Jason and Andrea sit down to review some of the themes discussed in episode 74 with Jill Miller and to delve more deeply into the topic of yoga injuries. How do we stop overpraising flexibility and “going further” in a pose without becoming afraid to fully use and inhabit our bodies?

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– Is the cue ‘flatten your tailbone’ correct or outdated?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!

Episode 9: Jason Crandell – Pain, Injury & Knowing What You Don’t Know

Hi everyone!

If you have a body and you do yoga, chances are you will sustain some sort of injury at some point. It can be disheartening, confusing, and overwhelming. It can also be a great opportunity for you to learn more about your anatomy, your personal limitations, and your habitual mental patterns (Who me? Push myself???).

On this week’s episode, Jason and I talk about yoga injuries. My initial interest in talking to Jason about this is because, contrary to popular practice, he does not ask people about their injuries before class. Yep, you heard that correctly. So, I ask him to explain this and we cover lots of other aspects, too, including:

* How to discern between stretching sensations and pain that’s injurious
* The benefit of pushing to your edge on the yoga mat
* Whether or not hands-on adjustments are really necessary in the yoga room
* How Jason addresses students’ injuries before class.
* Why Jason doesn’t say that he teaches “therapeutic yoga”

“A lot of times in yoga we use our body to do the pose. At some point we have to stop doing that. At some point we have use the pose to understand the body.” — Jason Crandell
