We’ve been giving a lot of tips for bringing your teaching online during the pandemic lately. This week, we talk through the challenges both teachers and students are going through. Then, we offer some thoughts and creative ideas (many of them from our students) on how to cope with those challenges. The challenges -- overcoming Zoom fatigue, the broken teacher-student “feedback loop,” the absence of manual adjustments, and the additional challenge of finding + retaining students. The solutions? Ideas for engaging yoga students and bringing back the sense of community we’re all craving right now, focusing on growth, innovation, and taking this time to plan classes. *Plus, we share our best advice for yoga students as they are navigating this new normalShow notes: TO OUR SPONSORSBetabrand's dress pant yoga pants make work wear that's as functional, comfortable, and inspiring as your favorite workout gear--perfect for long work days or working from home.

This week, Jason and I chat about a topic that's near and dear to my heart: Creating online content to help grow your teaching business. We don't yet know how COVID is going to impact the future of yoga teaching. But there's one thing I know for sure: Creating online content is incredibly beneficial. It helps you grow, it helps you hone your voice, it attracts students who are interested in your approach. There are so many reasons! On this episode I share my top five, plus some key ideas for how to get started.If you'd like a print-out of the takeaways from this week's episode, head over to the shownotes page:Show notes: Support this show  See for privacy and opt-out information.
Today’s guest is writer, illustrator, and yoga teacher Kristen Booker. For the past decade, Kristen has built a successful career as a freelance writer in New York -- her work has appeared in Elle, Marie Claire, Refinery 29, Well+Good, and more. A year ago -- just after finishing her yoga teacher training -- Kristen returned to her hometown of Charleston, West Virginia to care for her aging mother.On this episode, Kristen shares her experience of going home and teaching yoga in a part of the world that has more traditional values than she’s used to. While she’s quick to point out that racism (both overt and implicit) is not a location-specific problem, her experiences have given her insight, which she eloquently shares in today’s episode.Show notes: Support this show  See for privacy and opt-out information.
It's safe to say that we need all the help we can get right now to stay grounded. You might remember Jaimal from episode 61 where we talked about his memoir, All Our Waves Our Water. This time around we focus on Jaimal's newest book for kids -- Mop Rides the Waves of Life. This book is so sweet and clear and meaningful with beautiful visuals by artist Matthew Allen. It gives kids a relatable way to practice mindfulness of feelings every day. Whether you are a kid or an adult feeling stressed, overwhelmed, or just plain grumpy, Mop offers a very relevant reminder to ride the waves as they come. Jaimal and I talk about what inspired him to write his first children's book, how Mop came to life, and we share our experiences of letting go during COVID.Check out the shownotes page for links to Jaimal's book for your littles and try his meditations with your kids, too!Show notes: Support this show  See for privacy and opt-out information.
