Yogi Tones Podcast Episode 60 With Samantha Rose – What Feels Right

Samantha is a Yoga Alliance Teacher having completed her 200 hour teacher training with internationally renowned Yoga and Pilates Teacher, Elena Voyce. She initially came to yoga looking for relief from lower back pain. Before long she was attending several regular weekly classes and found the relief she was looking for, plus so much more. Coming to the mat at The Mill fast became her haven, and soon she became completely immersed and on a path of self-discovery in the practice of yoga. Having attended regular classes, several workshops and maintaining a steady personal practice, it was whilst on an amazing retreat in Morocco that it was cemented in her mind, that this is what she wanted to do … teach and share the wonder of yoga.

Yogi Tones Podcast Episode 59 With Lara Falberg – Does It Make Sense

Today on the show is the return of Lara Falberg, a yoga teacher, novelist, and founder of iworkbarefoot a yoga teaching resource offering verbal cues, mini sequences, class themes, and advice if you want some.

Here are some bullets for what Lara and I touch on in this episode.

  • How to build classes
  • How to teach to your audience
  • How to find your unique teaching style and voice
  • How to become a solid sequencer
  • How to effectively weave in a class theme without beating students over the head with it. (I haven’t written an article about this, but it’s a big part of what my website offers.
  • How you practice informs how you teach.
  • You’re always interviewing. 

Lara has been teaching since 2006, and is constantly struck by how our lens of the practice and the teaching of it changes so constantly. Read her novel about the yoga teacher training experience, Yoga Train, or if that’s too big of a commitment, and articles are more your jam, she’s written a fair amount of those too. Such a pleasure to have Lara back on! Enjoy the show and your day!

Yogi Tones Podcast Episode 58 With Bri Randall – Show Up

Bri Randall is a personal trainer, yoga instructor and photographer from Atlanta, Georgia. After the death of her high school sweetheart she began practicing yoga in 2015 and found the practice instrumental in her grieving and healing process. On a whim in January 2016 she began teacher training, and over the course of learning more about the yoga practice she also learned more about herself. In February 2017 she completed her RYT 200 under Rosalyn Nix. Now she strives to give back everything that the practice has given her: strength, flexibility, patience and discipline. But even more than that she hopes to connect with students on a personal level. Through her quirky brand of vigorous, fluid teaching and childlike energy and open-mindedness, she aims to create a holistic experience that explores the mind-body connection and invites students back for more. You can find her teaching Power Flow at Yoga General in Decatur, Georgia Tuesday mornings at 9:30, and subbing classes all over the greater Atlanta area.

Yogi Tones Podcast Episode 51 With Alexia Bauer – Reverse The Roles

Alexia’s first encounter with yoga was a playful one. As a five-year-old she would walk around the house on her knees in lotus posture, mimicking the photos she found in a yoga book in her grandfather’s library. The book disappeared but the inspiration remained in the back of her mind. Seventeen years later, Alexia realized that she couldn’t deny her hunger to learn the practice of yoga: she left Guatemala, her home country, and moved to Chicago to start her teacher training. Alexia’s greatest influence was Kino MacGregor, one of the few certified Ashtanga teachers in the country. Kino’s inspiration helped Alexia discover that her heart is in the Ashtanga yoga practice. Alexia practiced for six years under the guidance of Todd Boman, who supported her practice and taught her faith and dedication with his own shining example. She apprenticed with Todd in the mysore classes and learned how to teach the method. In July 2012 Alexia went to Mysore, India for the first time and studied for six weeks under the guidance of Sharath Jois at the Jois Institute where Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga was first codified. In 2013 she got a 200-hour certification from Richard Freeman and Mary Taylor at the Yoga Workshop in Boulder, Colorado.

Alexia teaches the mysore program at Yogaview, Chicago, public classes at Moksha Yoga Center, and private lessons. She has found daily practice to be profoundly transformative, calming, and empowering.  As a teacher, Alexia inspires students to persevere, with enthusiasm, and share in these benefits.
