Bent Over Wellness

Jun 16, 2019

How important is it for a yoga teacher to understand neurology and the brain?  Does it need to be a part of every teacher training?  What are the false narratives perpetuating untrue claims to rid students of a selection of ailments?  How and why are teachers still making these claims?

These are just a few topics among many that we cover in this discussion.  You'll find yourself asking why and how, and that's exactly what Erin sets out to do.
