Yogi Tones Podcast Episode 71 With Ashley Jonas – You Don’t Know Until You Try

Ashley Jonas (E-RYT), started practicing yoga in 2010 to help improve her performance as a college athlete. In 2013, after experiencing the benefits of a daily yoga practice, she received her 200-hr yoga teacher certification and began teaching vinyasa yoga, the most accessible style of power yoga. Ashley is also a Budokon® Yoga Sensei trained through the Budokon Mixed Movement Academy with Cameron Shayne. She is inspired by all movement styles including martial arts, calisthenics, running, weight lifting and dance. Her classes are fun, yet challenging with focus on finding the yogi warrior within. Ashley was very upfront about how she makes a living from being a yoga instructor and I feel the episode will help anyone looking to make this a full time gig. Much love to you and enjoy your day!!

Yogi Tones Podcast Episode 70 With Nina Jarnum – Teach As Much As Possible

Nina is a North California based teacher registered with Yoga Alliance, trained in the Hatha tradition by Shane Davies and Smart Flow with Annie Carpenter. Always seeking a deeper understanding of yoga and movement, she is currently pursuing her 500 hrs YTT in Smart Flow.

Although Danish born and raised, her yoga journey started over a decade ago whilst living in England, as a means to counteract the impact, years of high level horse riding had on her body. A few years later, having moved to California, she discovered her talent (and obsession) for arm balances and inversions, and the road to becoming a yoga teacher became a natural development from then on.

Nina is a self-confessed anatomy geek, but likes bending the rules and challenge yoga dogma. Her approach to asana is based on bio-mechanic intelligence and she is known for her ability to break down handstands and arm balances, teaching students anatomically correct body engagement. Nina works from the principle that asana is a union of strength, flexibility, balance and breath, but also thinks it imperative to inject playfulness and fun into her practice and teaching.

Yogi Tones Podcast Episode 69 With Andrew Gordon – Call From The Goat Yoga Guy

Andrew Gordon is back on the show! This time we talk goat yoga and the other interesting opportunities that yoga studio owners get, this episode we stay pretty focused on goats. Great episode if you want to get into goat, or any kind of animal yoga. Andrew started practicing yoga in 2002 and fell in love right away.  After working 10 years as a radio host and getting his Masters in Education, he turned to yoga looking for an answer and a purpose. Yoga helped him lose 60lbs and lower his cholesterol/blood pressure from life-threatening numbers, to optimal health. As his practice grew, a friend encouraged him to do Yoga Teacher Training. The decision to do the training changed him forever.  Listen in to what he has to share about goats and how this can fit and work within the yoga studio!

Yogi Tones Podcast Episode 67 With Jon Old-Rowe – Loving Others Where They Are

Fourteen years ago Jon began yoga in a teacher training, and was where he took his first yoga class. It was actually a practice that began to quell his mind’s desires and addictions to pain and suffering.  Through a daily practice and much guidance, the links between his breath, mind, body and unique spirit gave Jon a heightened sense of the importance of love on all levels…for the individual self and all beings surrounding it. 

Jon teaches at Trilogy and Buddhi Yoga. Check him out!

Yogi Tones Podcast Episode 66 With Nicole Jurovics – Rattled And Rebuilt

Nicole tried her first yoga class at Guilford College in 1992 because she thought it would be an easy elective. It was and it wasn’t. She adored her first yoga teacher for being funny and very strong, even though her teacher was really old…..like, forty (ahem)! So Nicole began practicing yoga more regularly and sampled styles and teachers as often as possible. After moving to Atlanta, Georgia at the end of 1994, she structured her life to include at least four yoga classes each week. With the physical practice established, her interest grew beyond her yoga mat and into other limbs of the discipline.

With a background in the music business, Nicole’s schedule included very late nights. She needed an anchor, something to tether her to a true foundation. She credits her yoga practice and studies for illuminating what was truly important—respect for herself and the friends who continually surfaced when she needed support. Shortly after marrying a yoga-loving musician (surprise!), she decided to further cement her commitment to her yoga practice by completing a 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training at Peachtree Yoga with Graham Fowler, Elizabeth Nix, and Sean Tebor.

Nicole has been teaching yoga since early 2004, with Decatur Yoga as her home base, although she’s fortunate to also work with other yoga studios, gyms, and schools.

Yogi Tones Podcast Episode 62 With Fanny Spencer – Remove The EGO

Fanny Spencer began practicing yoga six years ago, and yoga slowly revealed more than a physical activity to her, but a way of life. Yoga enabled her to calm her mind and connect with her body and the people around her. In moments when she felt most confused, uncertain or lost, returning to her mat always brings clarity. In a pursuit to deepen her practice, she completed a 200 hour Vinyasa Flow teacher training with the greats Amanda Winkler and Taryn Vander Hoop at Om Factory New York.
