Episode Highlights

Inspired by an email I received from a fellow yoga teacher, today’s episode explores the following questions:

  • What does it mean if you are actually becoming less flexible rather than more flexible when you increase your frequency of practice?

  • Do you need to be able to perform certain poses to be a good yoga teacher?
