Episode 161: The Getting to Know You Episode

Andrea Ferretti quote | yoga podcast | Yogaland PodcastI am so excited to share this new season of Yogaland with you! This week, we kick off the season with a live episode that Jason and I recorded at triyoga in London during Jason’s recent teacher training. If you’re a long-time listener, you might know that both Jason and I identify as introverts. So, we understand why some students tend to shy away from speaking up or asking questions in a large group settings. Jason encourages engagement by asking students in his trainings to split into smaller groups and share what they love about the practice. Today, we’re answering those questions ourselves, so you can get to know us a little bit better, too. You’ll learn: * Our yoga origin stories (why we went to our first yoga class, what it was like, and what kept us coming back!) * What teachers have been most influential for us through the years and how different approaches to the practice have helped us become the yoga practitioners we are today * How and why we decided to make the leap from student to teacher * How we feel that podcasting is similar and different from teaching yoga

  2. I consider Andrea one of my yoga teachers! I learn so much from listening to this podcast. I’m in my 50s and found yoga in my 40s. I’ve been teaching for 3 years and I think of Yogaland Podcast as svadhyaya/self study. The self reflection that happens during/after listening to an episode brings value to my life and teaching.
