Episode 210: 4 Key Ways to Prevent Yoga Injuries

In this episode, Jason and I tackle yoga injuries. There may not be a way to completely prevent all injuries, but we’re sharing some best practices that teachers and students can practice to minimize the risk.

We cover a lot of ground, but here are a few top-level points:

* Why there’s no one “right” way to approach any pose in order to prevent injury.

* The four key things you should consider in regards to injury prevention

* The types of hands-on adjustments that Jason advocates against

* How to find equilibrium and balance in yoga poses

    ‘Simple, easy-to-learn techniques.’ HELLO!

    Good afternoon,

    I hope you’re well!

    I’m getting in contact to see if you’re interested in interviewing authors of The Book of Rest, James Reeves and Gabrielle Brown, on your podcast? The paperback, publishing 7th January 2021, contains simple and accessible language to help us harness the principles of yoga nidra. Amidst a global pandemic, national lockdowns and general widespread societal unrest, it has never been more relevant for us to find calm in a chaotic world.

    The Book of Rest paperback edition includes a new bonus chapter: Rest in Times of Crisis.

    In today’s fast-paced world, we’ve never been busier. We’re surrounded by pressures from work, family, study and social media. It can feel like there’s never time to truly switch off and relax.

    But the answer is simpler than you think – and it’s within you.

    Through simple, easily learned techniques The Book of Rest reveals how to find a moment of peace even in the busiest of days, and a path to a calmer, happier and more relaxed you.

    James Reeves and Gabrielle Brown founded the yoga and meditation school Restful Being Ltd in 2014, specialising in yoga nidra, a transformative state of deep rest. James has been a practising yoga teacher since 2005 after completing his first teacher training in Kerala, India and is now recognised as a world-leading yoga nidra authority, delivering classes, workshops, retreats and teacher training courses globally and online.

    Gabrielle has been a dedicated yoga practitioner since 2004 and qualified to teach in 2013 after studying classical yoga in India and yoga nidra in California, USA.

    Please do get in touch if you’d like to set up an interview and I can send over a press release and a PDF / physical copy of the book to you.

    Very Best,
