Episode 12: Chrissy Carter – Seeing Yoga Poses With Fresh Eyes

This is where the subhead goes where we talk about how you need to do your research and two other things 

Chrissy Carter

Hi everyone!

Hope you are enjoying your summer. To help you enjoy it a bit more, the lovely Chrissy Carter (my guest on this episode) is sharing her lovely Lemonade Recipe, which you can find right here. You could even mix up a batch for yourself while you’re listening to this podcast.

Chrissy (@yogachrissy) is an alignment-based flow teacher who teaches in New York City. She’s been teaching for YogaWorks for 10 years and has 25 teacher trainings under her belt! Yes, 25. You read that correctly. Given that, and given the attentive, caring way Chrissy has about her, we talked about:

  • Her former job as a Wall Street trader
  • Why she loves a great Iyengar Yoga class and how it helps her see things with fresh eyes
  • Why it’s important for teachers to study Iyengar (even if you’re not an Iyengar teacher)
  • What it feels like to be an experienced yoga teacher vs. being a newbie
  • How cooking is her yoga put into practice
  • Her feelings about whether or not students and teachers should be friends

“A skilled yoga teacher has the ability to take one pose and introduce it to you many different ways so that when you come to the pose it’s almost as if you’re seeing it and experiencing it for the very first time.”— Chrissy Carter
