Hey friends, just checking in from my kitchen on this Wednesday evening, where my dog is enjoying my last bite of broccoli (he is so weird) and pre-washing my dinner plate.

Hamstrings are a tough spot for a lot of people, and forward folds, whether they're seated or standing, can be a source of frustration for many, which is why I wanted to offer three tips for improving the pose. The great thing about this pose is that it really can be done anywhere - no mat needed - so add it at the beginning or end of your chair yoga sequence and give it a go during your office lunch break yoga (what's that? You don't haven't started doing yoga on your lunch break?! Do it!)Read More

Yoga Teacher Talk is a new series I'm excited to unveil here on YBC where we'll discuss all different aspects of teaching. I'm hoping it'll be a great resource for current teachers, and those thinking about attending a teacher training. There's also a Yoga Teacher Talk section in the YBC Yoga Forum, and we'd love to keep the conversation going over there, too! Come join!
When I started teaching yoga, I was terrified. I felt like I wasn't good enough. I had a lot of self doubt. I was overly critical of my teaching. My playlists. My sequencing.

Here's what I have learned, and would like to offer as advice to all the new yoga teachers out there.Read More
