Jivana Heyman on accessible yoga + equality: triyoga talks episode 28

Jivana Heyman is on a mission to bring the heart of yoga and its practices to long marginalised and under-represented groups. As a social activist, he advocates equal and fair treatment for all people in the yoga space – the disabled, the elderly, the chronically ill, the bigger bodied, the economically disadvantaged. He founded Accessible Yoga, a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to bringing the practices of yoga to everyone, regardless of their economic status, race, sexuality, gender identity or ability. In doing so he helped spark a movement to make everyone and anyone feel welcome in a yoga class so they can experience the benefits of yoga. In this episode of triyoga talks, we hear Jivana’s views on yoga as a human right, how to work with students with differing abilities and whether there should be more specialised classes in studios.

Celest Pereira on hypermobility + the business of yoga: triyoga talks episode 27

One third of the population lands somewhere on the spectrum of hypermobility and the yoga community often praises this over flexibility of the joints, attracting a large number of hypermobile students. Being in the dark about your own or your student’s hypermobility can lead to serious injury. So, what exactly is hypermobility? What are the common symptoms? What can be done to correct bad habits within your asana practice? And how can teachers spot and help to adjust hypermobile students during a busy class? In this episode of triyoga talks, we explore all these questions and more with triyoga teacher and hypermobility expertCelest Pereira. We also touch on the business of yoga, top activities to supplement your practice, how to handle online trolls and tips for yoga teachers trying to succeed in an over-saturated market. When discussing how to help individual students during a full class, Celest shares: “The components that can help someone who is hypermobile are actually the components who can help anybody. When you start to understand your biomechanics and when you start to move with integrity with the body and you turn on your stability muscles… oh my goodness your life changes.” Click here to view Celest’s schedule and book to practice with her at triyoga Soho.

rethinking gurus in modern yoga: triyoga talks episode 26

Four experts discuss the dynamics of the guru-disciple relationship in this special recording of our recent symposium in Camden. This was an evening of open, honest and fascinating conversation, which we’re releasing by popular request from those who missed out on the day. The event looked closely at the traditional guru-disciple relationship that ancient Indian epic texts say is crucial to spiritual progress. However, it’s a relationship that’s come under intense scrutiny in recent times amid questions about the influence of power dynamics. On the panel were an Advaita Vedanta teacher (Bhaskar Ramachandran), an Iyengar yoga teacher (Carrie Owerko), an ashtanga yoga teacher (Philippa Asher), and an academic (Amelia Wood). They discuss ways in which contemporary yoga teachers can approach their duty authentically and traditionally while empowering and championing their students. Bhaskar Ramachandran explains the basis of the relationship: “In Sanskrit, the word ‘guru’ means dispeller of darkness; one who removes darkness, one who removes ignorance. So, the sole objective of the guru is to remove your ignorance. It should be the sole objective of the guru. This is the basis of the relationship between the teacher and student. It is surrender, it is faith.” Listen to our other podcasts in the ‘triyoga talks’ series here.

Kino MacGregor on mental health, wealth + the future of ashtanga yoga: triyoga talks episode 25

Globally-recognised yoga teacher Kino MacGregor shares the inspiring tale of her evolution from late-night raver to fully-devoted yoga practitioner, teacher and entrepreneur. Her first goal as a new yoga teacher was a grand one: share yoga with one million people. Two decades later, and she’s done just that, inspiring 1.1 million followers on Instagram and students in studios around the world. In this episode of triyoga talks, Kino shows her vulnerable side as she opens up about her healing from the trauma of rape. She shares her views on the role of money in yoga, and the future of ashtanga yoga. She even talks about babies, and whether or not she’s planning on running for political office. When discussing making ashtanga accessible, she spoke about the need to shift attention towards yoga’s essence: “I can only hope that all yoga practitioners can understand that the magic and the power of the practice is not based in rules, rigidity and dogma, but is based in a power to trans...

triyoga talks episode 23: Beryl Bender Birch on power yoga, social justice + accessibility

Subscribe: iTunes | Spotify | Stitcher In the 1980s, Beryl Bender Birch famously coined the term “power yoga,” and in doing so brought the practice of ashtanga yoga to the high-energy masses in Manhattan at the New York Road Runners Club, where she was the wellness director. The influential and best-selling book “Power Yoga” soon followed and, today many teachers credit it as being the first yoga book they ever bought. Three more books followed, each progressing deeper into the many practices of yoga including philosophy and meditation. She broadened out her student base from the athletic at first, to the aging as well as those in active military service. She is also a pioneer for yoga and social justice having co-founded the inspiring non-profit organisation Give Back Yoga Foundation. In this episode of triyoga talks, Beryl discusses everything from the origin of “power yoga” to practising under the fierce ashtanga teacher Norman Allen to supporting first-responders and veterans through trauma-sensitive yoga. When speaking about the evolution of one’s practice, Beryl sums up the journey quite poetically, stating: “I think all our practices in yoga, whether it’s asana, pranayama or meditation, are progressively requiring us to pay attention in a more subtle way. We start out paying attention to the physical body and once we get that straightened out, we start to become more aware, more conscious, our circle of compassion expands.” To access this inspiring conversation about power, presence and accessibility, listen to the full podcast online or subscribe using the buttons above.
