You can listen below, and you can also listen in iTunes and Google Play and pretty much anywhere else podcasts are played, including Spotify!

Yoga teachers sometimes adopt a breathy voice that sounds like they floated in on a cloud. We turn to psychology, some trends in yoga culture, a wee bit of Ayurveda, and vocal anatomy today to consider...

- What is a voice, and how unique are our voices exactly?

- An example of yoga voice, and possible reasons that we may adopt certain yoga voices

- Ayurvedic constitution might influence your use of metaphors

- Why some people borrow cues from other teachers, and if that's karmically cool or not

- A troubling trend in yoga voices seeking authority in the field

- Vocal warmups so you sound your best before you teach

podcast ep 14: reducing fear in teaching hands-on

You can listen below, and you can also listen in iTunes and Google Play and pretty much anywhere else podcasts are played, including Spotify!

Hands-on assists are a source of fear for a number of teachers who want to do the right thing for their students. I invited my friend dallas delahunt to come back and have a conversation with me about teaching hands-on.  We are both known for doing hands-on enhancements when we teach, and so we talk about why and how, and some strategies for moving forward with hands-on teaching.
