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

Jason Crandell quote advanced yoga | Yogaland Podcast | Yoga Podcast

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

We dive into:
* Why Jason rarely teaches  Virabhadrasna I (Warrior I Pose) and how he feels about “squaring” the hips
* What  he 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 (it might not be what you think)

This week on the podcast, we continue our conversation with Jill Miller to learn even more about the mysterious (and amazing!) connective tissue that literally holds our bodies together, fascia.

We learn more about:
* What the three different layers of fascia are, how each layer functions, and why each one is important
* Where in your own body you can feel the different textures of fascia
* What happens to the fascia when you stretch your muscles
* How to use tools like therapy balls, a yoga mat, or even a hard wood floor to create awareness from the skin to the deep fascia (Hint: Less is more)
* Whether rolling on therapy balls is more effective before or after exercise

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 22: Rachel Brathen – Staying True to Your Values in the Face of Success

You might know Rachel Brathen as “Yoga Girl” on Instagram — she’s one of the original yoga insta-stars and has 2 million followers. Two million! That’s crazay! And yet, despite this quick rise to fame, Rachel is incredibly down-to-earth and not afraid to say that the superficial side of social media can suck the life out of a person from time to time. I wanted to know what makes Rachel tick, so I tried to dig into how she’s become the teacher (and student) she is today.

Rachel and I talk about:

* How a 10-day Osho meditation retreat changed the course of her entire life
* Her initial yoga practice, which was therapeutic and aimed toward healing debilitating back pain
* How pregnancy is changing her practice
* Why she has never started hocking products like yoga pants for other brands
* Whether or not she considers herself to be fearless
* The ingenious model behind her 109 Global Mission trips
* Her surprising advice for navigating social media as a yoga teacher
