Episode 14: Jason Crandell – Create a Home Practice You Love

Hi there!

This week Jason Crandell talks all about home practice. We get straight to the point and talk about:

* Where to start if you don’t know how to practice on your own
* Why it’s vital for yoga teachers to have a consistent home practice
* How your relationship to yoga practice changes when you become a yoga teacher
* His thoughts on pushing yourself to practice your least favorite poses
* The ways that your home practice can transform over time to support you in different phases of life and teaching.

If you’re interested in training with Jason, he’s offering an advanced level training, broken into three modules next year in San Francisco. You can do all three next year, or one at a time as your schedule allows. Click here for the details.

“If you’re trying to be consistent with a home practice that soothes you and feeds you and inspires you, then start with the stuff that you resonate with. If that’s what makes you feel motivated and inspired, then that’s what you should stick with.” — Jason Crandell

  1. Great interview, Andrea and Jason! Really insightful and wise points for both teachers and practitioners.

    I am passionate about encouraging home practice and giving my students tools. I tell them yoga is not a class, it’s a practice, and the benefits come through regular practice. Last year, I created a simple home practice guide and did a workshop on how to use it. A few of my students have told me they are using it and it has helped them keep a home practice going.

    A small minority of the people who come to class establish a home practice, in my experience. Reasons include not having a suitable place, not having the will or discipline to practice on their own–many say they need the structure of a set time/place, instructor, and people around them. Some seem to take a casual approach to yoga. It’s a class they attend once a week; one of many things they do, not a main thing. This is the nature of beast, as far as I can tell.

    I appreciate this podcast and am sending the link to my students and other teachers.

  2. Hi, I love your website and I love Yogaland as well! Just an fyi, Colleen Saidman Yee’s name is wrong on your page listing her book under sequencing suggestions.

    • Thank you! I just noticed how autocorrect changed it to Sandman. Oy vey.

  3. Thank you so much for creating this podcast. Your reasoning behind how to approach home practise makes alot of sense. This list of sequences (recipes) to begin with has got me excited. Thank you so much for sharing. As a new teacher, that is constantly doubting myself, this is awesome guidance.
