Jason Crandell quote

Jason is on the podcast this week to answer a few questions that came up about our Summer Series. (This is the long-lost bonus episode that we recorded this summer live during one of Jason’s teacher training modules but the file got corrupted.)

We address:

  • His sequencing philosophy + the one biggest mistake he thinks yoga teachers make when planning their yoga class sequences (hint: it has to do with creating “creative yoga sequences”)
  • How to help students find a slow, steady breath during vinyasa classes — including how to breathe for backbends like Urdhva Dhanurasana (Wheel Pose), Dhanurasana (Bow Pose), and dropping back into Urdhva Dhanurasana.
  • Why consistency is such an important element for teaching and practicing yoga.
  • Jason’s thoughts on finding an appropriate pace for vinyasa yoga classes.
