Episode 171: Is Yoga Enough?

This week, Jason and I are tackling another common question that modern yoga students ask: Is yoga enough to keep you healthy? Or do you need to add other forms of exercise to your routine?

The answer, of course, depends on the goal. But we chat about our own thoughts as long-time practitioners and weigh in on some of the benefits we’ve noticed from adding additional forms of exercise into our routines.

We also talk about:

* Jason’s teaching philosophy and why he tries to make his classes as comprehensive as possible to keep his students physically fit and healthy

* Whether varying the styles of yoga you practice (for example a strong vinyasa class and a restorative class every week) is a good approach to staying physically healthy

* How adding other forms of exercise to his routine has helped Jason keep his teaching and asana practice fresh and inspired

* What Andrea added to her routine to help her finally do a Chaturanga well
