Whenever I think of spicing up the floating and jumping in my Ashtanga practice I think of David Robson. Perhaps this is because of the brilliant videos he has had out like “learn to float” with so much technical detail. It was not a big guess to think of who we wanted for our themed interview on the subject. I always have a lot of fun interviewing David because he has a great sense of humour and this one is…
I have been so lucky to be able to chat with John Scott quite a few times now. This interview amused me immensely because John was particularly difficult to keep on track as we meandered through multiple layers of digressions. In the end I think we did circle around to answer the question I posed at the beginning about moon phase and how it might influence our practice but there were some great journeys along the way.
This is a great interview I did with the charismatic Joey Miles. We talk about what brought him to yoga and what he sees for his future as a teacher and practitioner, and of course a lot of other things. Joey is a kind and compassionate teacher and definitely someone I would seek out to study under.
I was extremely lucky to be able to catch up with Paul Dallaghan while I was teaching a retreat in Samahita Retreat in Thailand. In this interview I get to talk to Paul about the teachers that influenced his practice, the studies he has now undertaken and how he feels the physical yoga practice sits within a general approach to health and fitness.
Different teachers have different takes on how we should do particular postures and forward folding is just such a group. In this video I talk to Darby about forwardfolding in general and the we move into a demo type workshop where Darby presents what he feels is a good way to approach forward folds.
This was so much fun to do and of course very topical at the moment coming shortly after the Fascial Research Congress. Joanne Avison is a yoga teacher and author of the book entitled Yoga Fascia Anatomy and Movement and I was lucky enough to be able to interview her when I was back in the UK. The interview runs at two and a half hours and we only realized it was time to stop because it was getting dark.
I met this lovely lady recently at Purple Valley where she had come to practice Ashtanga. I am all for mixing styles and finding what suits your body so when I found out that Magdalena was a famous Yin teacher and bestselling author I was very keen to interview her. She is so relaxed and full of enthusiasm, that whatever she is doing definitely works for her and maybe will for you too 🙂
