Can You Teach Yoga If Your Not Flexible?

A little rant about being flexible on and off the mat. We as teachers have a responsibility to our students especially new ones to be mindful. I also get that students sometimes don’t listen and maybe need a talking to after class, hahaha! Also I touch on the idea of being flexible in the yoga business you are building and share a recent situation that had me pissed and needing me to find my yoga off the mat. Enjoy the show!

Yogi Tones Podcast with Bahman Sarram – Love and Unity

Bahman Sarram is an artist, violinist, composer, producer and singer/songwriter whose music ties together many cultures and expressions into an ecstatic celebration of life. Based in San Diego, Bahman has won over audiences with his passion and unlimited energy that vibrates through his performances and diverse musical palette.

His composing credits include composing for the award winning film “Circumstance”,  and several independent films and documentaries.

Bahman’s musical versatility knows no bounds and can’t be categorized into a single genre. No matter what style he’s playing whether  funk, jazz fusion, Middle Eastern, Conscious Music, folk or rock, his improvisational skills, raw energy and natural instinct for melody leaves audiences with a feeling that they have experienced something unique and rare.

Bahman’s childhood roots in classical violin training fused later on in his early adulthood being drawn to playing with artists from all different musical genres, expanding his palette for music.

“I was 4 years old, and my family was being exiled from our country, our home. We were fleeing a land ripped apart by turmoil, and political and social revolution.”

For Bahman, the uneasy years of his childhood in Iran were marked by chapters of triumph and tribulation. Those memories continue to have a profound effect on him and his music to this day.

“I remember the music of my home land, dancing while my mom sang at parties. I remember always being moved by sound and wanting to be part of it in some way,” Bahman says. “I know those days will always be a part of me, every time I play. It’s inescapable”
