As we discussed in our recent post, “Our #1 Yoga Teacher Complaint,” making enough money to pay the bills as a yoga teacher can be a challenge. Many teachers resort to creating multiple streams of income in order to make it work. It’s all about creating a balance between how to serve people from a […]

Twice a month we get the perfect chance as teachers to inspire in our students an appreciation for the introspective side of their nature. The days of the full and new moons are great opportunities to draw attention to our feminine side and give permission to honor it. These are some of my favorite times […]

Here’s an idea you can build on…plan your class with three types of poses in mind: forward folds, backbends and twists. Folds, backbends and twists are complimentary—your body will begin to crave them as you move through class. Basically you’ll follow the pattern Rupali suggests in this Vinyasa Short on Folds/Backbends/Twists. She shows three repetitions […]

We’ve just returned from another two weeks in Japan spreading the message of yoga…and the smiles, joy, learning and growth were truly remarkable. This is what “International Day of Yoga” means to us! There’s not a day that goes by that we aren’t extremely grateful and humbled by the opportunities we’ve had over the years […]

This post features one of the video modules from Demystifying the Elusive Bandhas, our online course available here.   Agni sara dhauti (aka, uddiyana bandha agni sara, or just agni sara), is a bit of a head-scratcher at first. Like…“Huh? How do I DO that?” and more importantly, “Why would I want to do THAT?! […]

I called this pose “Crazy Pose” long before I heard it had a name. Others (Seane Corn, Shiva Rea, etc.) call it “Wild Thing.” Both names hint at its unconventional nature. Wild Thing can be a deceptively challenging back-bending pose, for a number of reasons. First, some ways of entering it make it a whole […]

I’m a big fan of arm balancing poses like parshva bakasana (side crow or crane) because they REALLY require that one-pointed focus that yoga is known to cultivate.

In a previous post I went over my journey with the five Tibetan Rites…and the benefits I received from practicing them daily. [Missed it? Check out “My Journey with the Five Tibetan Rites“ here.] But what if you or a student aren’t able to do the full five tibetan rites? Modify, modify, modify!!! Typically we […]

In one of my previous posts, I talked about how an awareness of and the subsequent despair about our common human suffering (saṃvega) can cause the awakening of a desire (pasada) to pursue Dharma, the path to Truth. I believe that many of us teach yoga because this pasada has been awakened within us. It […]
