Judith Hanson Lasater is back on the show today for the 3rd time. We chat about her 2 very significant milestones. Her newest book, “Teaching Yoga with Intention - The Essential Guide to Skillful Hands-On Assists and Verbal Communication”. She also completed 50 years of teaching yoga this July & I ask her what it's like to teach for half a century. Her evolution through this journey.
Teaching yoga with intention is a book that is for both - the yoga teacher and the yoga student. Judith addresses the importance of communication for yoga teachers. Especially communicating using the system of non-violent communication. (I had previously interviewed her about this. Listen to episode 31) & the importance of mutuality & empathy in communication.
Her book also highlights adjustments, power dynamics, difficult conversations & hands-on adjustments.
My favorite part of the book is the final section about how to become an educated student. This is a key part of the conversation that's missing in mainstream yoga. We can all use reminders of how to be a better yoga student!
Judith also shares a special 30% off coupon code for her new book in this episode. You can listen anywhere you stream your podcasts or just head to the link in my bio!
