Summer Series! Ep 1: Creative Ways to Inspire Your Practice This Summer

It’s summer! My favorite season. But, I will admit, that I tend to be more loosey goosey in the summer about EVERYTHING, which means that sometimes my yoga practice falls by the wayside. With that in mind, I decided to create a special summer series with Jason! It’s been fun putting together six extra-special episodes for you all and I truly hope it inspires you.

For the first episode, we offer 10 Creative Ways to Inspire Your Practice This Summer. (If you want a written version of the episode, you can click here to go to the blog post.) Otherwise, listen below!

Episode 52: Gina Caputo on Strengthening Your Awareness & Emotional Support Bananas

Gina Caputo has so much to offer to Yogaland: In addition to practicing and teaching yoga for nearly two decades, she’s been on the ground floor of opening and managing three different yoga schools — Sacred Movement in Venice, California, Kansas Siddhi Yoga Studio, and and The Colorado School of Yoga in Boulder, Colorado. Gina also has a FANTASTIC sense of humor. One of my favorite things she says in this interview is, “Be sincere, not serious.”

On this episode, I asked Gina to share her thoughts and stories about self-awareness practice, specifically her recent experience of doing a 10-day silent meditation course. Spoiler alert: She made it through 10 days of silence! But not without some support from a banana or two.

Episode 51: Susan Cain — Embrace Your Quiet Side

Susan Cain is the reason the word “introvert” came back into everyday conversation. Her book “Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking” spent more than four years on The New York Times Best Seller List, her Ted Talk on the topic has been viewed more than 16 million times, and she’s the co-founder of the organization Quiet Revolution. She also loves yoga! We talk about why yoga is so appealing for introverts, the reasons introverts make great leaders, and ideas for when to push yourself out of your comfort zone and act more extroverted for a spell.

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 49: A True Story of Overcoming Depression, Panic, & Shame

Hello, all —

On this little bonus episode, I offer my own story of the panic attacks and depression that plagued me in my twenties and the subsequent shame I felt about being a yogi and making the choice to take anti-depressants. If you’re suffering, I created this podcast to let you know that you’re not alone. And if you’re feeling guilty about taking the meds, I want to help you clear that guilt, to help you NOT put another layer of pain on top of the suffering.
